    I’m going to have to say ‘maybe’ here, as I’m not sure what I’ll suggest is what you’re asking for.

    At present I don’t know of a way to allow for multiple name ‘slugs’ for any one category, but with the ability to assign multiple categories to a post you can set up categories like:

    /to-miami/
    /from-miami/

    and link relevant posts to both, or rather have child categories of:

    /to-miami/from-chicago/
    /to-miami/from-paris/
    /to-miami/from-london/

    /from-miami/to-chicago/
    /from-miami/to-paris/
    /from-miami/to-london/

    and assign the appropriate children to a post. But this means you would be required to set up the various from/to categories and then all the related from/to child categories, which based on your example here could get pretty numerous.

    Hmmm, thanks, that’s food for thought, you’re right – it’s not perfect, but I think it could work like that.

    I had been looking at using the pages instead of posts, but I think that’s a dead end.

    Doing it your way would mean I didn’t have lots of duplicate content, which would be great, but I would have a very complex category system.

    So I would need a way to only display relevant categories based on where the user was at any given time.

    Thanks again 🙂
