Company description

Recreational travelers worldwide are increasingly seeking highly customized travel experience that cannot be fulfilled by existing online travel sites/travel planning tools that are geared towards pre-packaged travel itineraries. Meet4Trip creates a collaborative and engaging environment for recreational travelers seeking highly customized travel experience. Additionally, it provides an online travel marketplace that maximizes the opportunities to complete a travel transaction through the creation and exchange of personal and contextual information.

Meet4trip leverages travelers’ social networks to enable comprehensive preparation and sharing of trip itineraries, collaboration with the friends/family involved in the trip preparation, and matching a destination expert to those who want to explore the destination. Individual travelers, travel groups and communities have an environment that allows them to discuss, plan, and share travel itineraries and experiences.  The complete trip itinerary is available on mobile devices before, during and after the trip, and can be shared with travelers’ network.

In addition, Meet4trip drastically reduces the efforts/search costs associated with highly customized travel by letting the travelers float their trip requests. The travel professionals, who have the knowledge and experience in the requested destination and travel style, select the trip requests to work on and plan for consumers. The travel professionals utilize Meet4trip collaboration functionality and itinerary management functionality to help the travelers narrow down the choices and finalize a trip.  The travel professionals can also advertise and sell their products and services on Meet4trip site.
