How Did The Idea Of Creating This Trip Planning Site Evolve
Imagine that one fun trip you decided you will plan with your friends/family. You would have realized that trip planning is not a cakewalk. Involving a lot of crucial factors and heaps of data point, planning a trip can be tedious, time-taking and not-so-pleasant experience.
Few important pointers to zero on, before starting the actual trip planning process are:
- Who is coming?
- Where to go?
- How to reach?
- Where to stay?
- What to do?
Remember how tricky it was to align everyone on the same page and to structure a proper plan.
When Praveen Kumar (IIM Lucknow), Karthik Ramachandra (IIM Indore) and Saket Newaskar (MDI Gurgaon), three friends and travel enthusiasts faced this problem, they decided to come up with a solution that will bring fun to the trip planning process.
