San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 22, 2010
Meet4trip (http://www.meet4trip.com) is a new collaborative online travel planning tool that connects customers with travel agents and fellow travelers via a common platform. Customers connect with their travel group, through Meet4trip’s social networking functionality and travel profiles. Together, they can collaborate with a travel agent to create an ideal custom itinerary. Meet4trip’s approach saves customers time, eliminating the hassle of sifting through multiple “one-size-fits-all” itineraries and quotes.
Utilizing Meet4trip’s flexible trip planner customers submit a trip or quote request to a travel agent based on specific interests, schedule, budget, and the type of travel preferred. The client can also link in profiles of other travelers going on the trip. An agent who specializes in requested destinations provides a quote and a sample itinerary. It is a starting point from which all trip participants and the travel professional collaborate in real time to create a final trip plan. Meet4trip’s platform also allows clients to build a network of travelers, share trip details with all participants, book multiple flights and tickets, send informational emails, estimate trip price and maintain all travel related information.
“Travel agents are extremely knowledgeable and able to provide personal advice specific to any individual situation. Travel planning with Meet4trip requires minimal time investment from the client,” said CEO and Co-Founder of TripElate, Lily Ksendzovsky, “Meet4trip is not only a common platform for the two parties to connect, but its powerful functionality is geared toward multiple participants or group travel planning, where all participants can take part in the planning process.”
