We’re sure you can all relate to this
Remember what a pain organizing your last vacation was? Exchanging countless emails, phone calls, Facebook messages & text messages with your co-travelers, only to lose track of them later on, and then spending hours searching and tracking various conversation threads on each of them to remember what you discussed. The entire process took so long and left you so exhausted that you just felt like cancelling the trip!
Online Travel Today
There is a lot of research that goes on before one books a trip – things like how to get there, where to stay, what to do, where to eat and ultimately how much it would all cost. You have to visit various websites to collect all this information and use multiple modes of communication to exchange this mountain of data. This pre-travel process takes weeks, even months. More the trip members and longer the trip, the more complicated planning becomes. Even after the trip, sharing trip photos and videos turns out to be a nightmare.
What’s wrong with most Travel sites/apps you use
We believe that online travel should be fun, not exhausting. We studied a wide range of travel applications out there and found that none of them truly matched the needs of today’s social-media oriented travelers, a majority of whom like to do their own research online, and desire all the information they need to plan the perfect trip at their fingertips.
Most ‘travel planning’ apps in the market today are actually OTAs masquerading as planning apps. They tend to promote destinations and packaged trips, and focus largely on booking, which forms a small part of the entire process of travel. The few that do focus on planning are either not very user-friendly or do not offer enough options and content.
The last 4-5 years has seen the emergence of a number of sites which offer curated trips to their users. These trips have predefined itineraries that the user can view and book. But what if you don’t want a predefined itinerary? What if you want to build your own trip, the way you want? And what if you want to create your own itinerary along with your friends who’ll be traveling with you on the trip? Unfortunately there are no sites today that help you do this the way you would want to.
So we decided to build a solution
Through our extensive research, we came to a conclusion that no application takes care of all these things for you – From trip planning to booking to post-trip sharing.
That’s how MyTripKarma was born – It is the easiest way to plan and book travel, allowing you and your friends to create, share and organize all your trips on a single page, making your travel process smooth and enjoyable.
