Collect Travel Ideas and Cool Destinations with Trippy

Collect Travel Ideas and Cool Destinations with Trippy | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Trippy is Pinterest-like social platform dedicated to the collection and sharing of travel and destination ideas.


Just like Pinterest, Trippy offers the opportunity to create thematic boards by either capturing unique content and images from the web

as well as by repinning other people's cool ideas.


From the About page: "So we're back, to change the way people travel once again. There are hundreds of travel sites made for you to plan your trip. Doesn't make much sense though, considering you're probably not an expert on places you're visiting, especially if you've never been before. Plus, travel sites are typically an unfortunate mix of questionable content from crowd-sourcing, "local experts" (aka, strangers), and people paid to write fake reviews. Trippy is the first site designed to offer a "friend-sourced" solution to the long-standing problem of untrustworthy and irrelevant travel content."


From the official site: "Trippy's trip planning tool allows you to create a trip itinerary based on the places you're considering, which can be shared with your friends to collaborate on ideas and recommendations.


Trips also work with our full-featured iPhone app so that you can view your travel plans and create trip albums on the go."

A Curated Travelers Guide: Collect Your Favorite Places and Travel Destinations with Travelavenue

A Curated Travelers Guide: Collect Your Favorite Places and Travel Destinations with Travelavenue | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: TravelAvenue is a new, Pinterest-like, visual pinning space that allows anyone to easily clip and collect favorite places, travel destinations and itineraries.


real travel guide made of travelers best findings.


The service resembles in many ways Pinterest as it allows its users to clip, pin, re-pin and collect items onto visual boards in a very Pinterest-like fashion.


For TravelAvenue the official goal is one of making trip planning experience more simple and fun through technology and collaboration.


"Also, online trip planning today is mainly a solitary research process whereas in “real life” the advice people trust the most are their family and friend’s. That’s why we want to make it more collaborative and social. In the age of social, “social planning” makes sense!"


Three the key approaches to help users successfully collect and find the travel info they are interested into: "1) The trip collections: it’s a personal space on Travelavenue where you will store all your findings from TravelAvenue and around the web while preparing your trip.


2) The Travelavenue pin-it button: it enables you to bookmark the Internet pages you want to remember and also to link it to the relevant location to Travelavenue’s broad catalog of addresses. For instance you can link a page about the Eiffel Tower to Travelavenue’s Eiffel Tower page. 


3) The collaborative travel guide: we use the curation work done by the community through the creation of trip collections to build a “best of the web” travel guide updated permanently by users adding and picking places."
