WHAT THEHEEBEE SAYS ABOUT METRIPPING:
Two things related to travel have got a drastic change in past decade’s time –
a). People perception of travel and
b). Amount of information and help available on the Internet to plan a travel.
People have started becoming comfortable towards unplanned and instant traveling. This is highly attributed to the changing times and easy access to the huge amount of information available on the Internet about the travel destinations, hotels, logistics, comparative pricing etc. While the amount of information is very helpful, this information explosion is very overwhelming and makes decison making a tough process.
While exploring my options for a family travel, I came across this site – MeTripping and it literally took me with surprise with the kind of end-to-end travel planning that they help with.
I took some time to explore it. Sharing here my experience.
About: At first I felt that I am stumbling over another travel portal. But the ease of use and the amount of help that I could get in planning my travel made me love it at first use. MeTripping is designed to take away all the ‘planning‘ part of our travel, which in fact is the most difficult part. It is difficult to first decide on the destination to suit our need, then the next difficult part is to search through the huge amount of data on the Internet for the stay of our choice, logistics is not that easy as well. MeTripping takes away all this pain from a traveler. Any traveler with just a ‘travel‘ on his/her mind can get all the help from MeTripping – including a help to identify a destination to suit the travel need.
Let’s take a travel through their portal.
- You are greeted with a very simple User Interface and a user-friendly widget to select your travel dates etc.
- The most interesting option on this page is “Inspire Me” to let the portal suggest destinations to you. Press this option to get all the needed help to finalize a destination to suit your travel needs. If you already know your destination and just enter it in the next box.
- I will take some time to surf through the “Inspire Me” planning flow which is my favorite on this portal.
- As you select “Inspire Me”, it expands to give you some easy options to select from so that the logic engine of the portal can then find the best matching destination, travel mode, and hotel stay.
- I want to go:
- I am looking for:
- I like to stay:
I am highly appreciative of the mind behind this design. I can relate that I precisely look for these options when I am planning my travel.
