We’re building a planning tool that’ll take the hassle out of travel, and we want our readers to be the first to know. Staying organized on the road should be easy and fun, so we’re creating a place where you can design an in-depth itinerary for your next adventure—from flights and hotels to activities and transportation—and then book it all, instantly.
Need inspiration on where to go? Save the flights, hotels, and activities that catch your eye, and dream up your next adventure down to the last detail before you book. Here are six features of our planning tool that we think you’ll love.
1. Plan Flights, Hotels, Activities, and Transport
Found the perfect flight? Save it to your planning wall. Then choose an amazing hotel and add it to your itinerary, too. Is your heart set on something to do once you arrive? Add activities to spice things up, from bungee jumping to food tours. Pre-plan your transportation between must-see spots. Once your trip is laid out in full, you can take time to compare options or jump right to booking.
2. Book Directly from Your Itinerary
Our travel planning tool is unique in its booking ability. Not only can you organize every element of your vacation, you can book it all directly from your itinerary. Just select “Book Now” and then a complete list of the items in your itinerary will appear, allowing you to select which ones you’re ready to finalize. Take care of everything all at once, or book elements of your trip separately.
3. Categorize Trips: Dreaming, Planning, and Booked
As travelers, we know there’s a lot that goes into the planning process: dreaming up where you’ll go, uncovering where to stay, narrowing down the best things to do. And comparing prices to get the best value is as important as avoiding non-refundable booking mistakes. Regardless of what stage of the process you’re in, our tool can help.
Feeling inspired? Add bucket-list destinations to your Dreaming wall and save the details for later. Use the Planning stage when you’re ready to to compare prices on flights, hotels, transport, and activities. Once you’ve finalized all the details, select “Book Now” and you’re ready to go.
