Travel in an “e”asy style

If you are a travel maniac, you must have been through these terrible experiences; you did not know your flight canceled until you arrived at the airport, or you lost your mind because of your travel guide is not customized for your needs. Smart marketers captured these unsatisfied need and innovated their service through online tools.  Imagine your journey would be taken in this way…

Plan your trip

Need some inspiration for your upcoming trip? Buying a guide book is kind of old-fashion and not eco-friendly; besides, it’s not easy to find a book which perfectly matches to your wants and needs.  Check out stay.com, which features accessibility to edit your customized guide book.  Pick up your destinations, filter attractions, and create your own guide book on hand.

Delta Airlines recently released a Facebook widget for users to plan a trip easier and more interesting. You can get some ideas of which destinations to go, name your trip, invite your friends to join the trip, and plan the trip schedule all together. The widget even embeds a function to count down how many days left for starting the trip! Users can enjoy the trip before it happens.

Get aboard

After booking your flight tickets and hotels online, you will get a confirmation letter in your mailbox. Take an easy step to forward your mail to “tripit.com”, and then you can read your reservations on your smartphone through an app. It’s really convenient  for users  because of the ability to collect all booking information organized on hand; beyond that,  users can keep posted of their flight status.  There are plenty of similar apps available to download, give them a try and see which one is most preferable for you.

Try to avoid wasting time for check-in? Go check-in online beforehand by yourself and save your time! Many airlines provide online check-in service for passengers with carry-on luggage.  Using online check-in service prior to your departure at airports helps to skip the process of waiting in line. Printing boarding pass by yourself or receiving mobile boarding pass on your mobile devices are either workable.

Enjoy your trip

Many people recording their journey by taking photos; however, some people are hesitated to do it without a professional camera. Now, leave it away if you have a smartphone on hand. Many photography apps are waiting to make your photos look amazing.  For example, my favorite photography iPhone app, Instagram, evokes 1970s style and features many lenses effect. Currently, Instagram is not available for Android users, but don’t be upset. Mashable releases a report introducing 8 best Android Apps for photo editing. Check it out and enjoy your journey by capturing the beautiful moment.

Share your story

One of the fun parts for traveling is to share your travel experiences to others.  Some people are addicted to online check-in, and can’t wait to let people know where they are; while some people prefer to post their stories and share their travel tips to others.  Tripadvisor provides not only a useful and fun widget for users to mark places where they have been, but also embeds features for travelers to evaluate each attraction and to share with their friends.
