I was frustrated with the hassles of participating in group trips because it meant having to deal with chain emails, scheduling disasters, searching for travel deals, and trying to split up costs

Social travel startup, Bonvoy premiers its novel facebook application letting travelers plan, book, and collect for their next group trip in a snap. The application eliminates trip logistic hassles by empowering travelers to create group travel pages. Travelers then communicate, collaborate, and coordinate on the group travel. Each traveler is presented with an itemized break down of their costs and then they can pay their portion of the trip.
“I was frustrated with the hassles of participating in group trips because it meant having to deal with chain emails, scheduling disasters, searching for travel deals, and trying to split up costs,” said Mujteba Naqvi, Founder & CEO of Bonvoy. “The process was a nightmare, so I thought to build a familiar feeling and easily accessible Facebook application that makes group travel painless.”
Whether it is meeting up with your college buds during March Madness, going on that infamous bachelor party to Las Vegas, or grabbing your girlfriends for a shopping getaway in New York - Bonvoy lets you share the world with its seamless approach to organizing group travel.
The application’s booking and reservation process is powered by global travel technology company, Amadeus. This will enable the delivery of an extensive and growing range of content such as air, car, and hotel fares, along with other travel-related information, to the ever-increasing audience of online travelers. Coupled with Bonvoy’s robust group trip tools, the facebook application has become a groundbreaking social travel booking engine.
