Travel Tips: Plan That Perfect Trip With Tripfocal

Travel Tips: Plan That Perfect Trip With Tripfocal

While there are many trip planning websites out there, there aren’t a lot of websites that contain the same amount of information as Tripfocal. Tripfocal offers a vast wealth of practical information, as told to you by other travellers, such as how to get to a destination (plane, train, boat, car etc.), where to sleep, where to eat, and what to do.

You can view itineraries provided by other travellers from around the globe who’ve already taken those trips, be it from those who took solo vacations, to families, couples, friends, and more. You’ll find full itineraries packed full of useful details and nothing like those typical top ten lists with silly tips like “stop and smell the flowers” or “look up at the tall buildings” – none of which are really helpful.

Their motto, “Real trips, by real people, with real advice” is something the founder Scott Green takes seriously and what inspired him and his co-founders to start Tripfocal in the first place. Leverage the expertise and experiences of fellow travellers to plan that perfect trip that suits you and whoever you may be travelling with – think about those dream trips to places like Venice, Bangkok, and or San Francisco
