There are tons of travel related startups, but hardly anyone that helps you plan your trip. Yoplr, a Bangalore based startup has launched their application (in closed beta now) and is available for Karnataka and Goa destinations.
The product suggests you destinations based on parameters like
- Holiday theme (romantic/adventure/beach/culture & historical etc)
- Companion (traveling alone/with friends/senior citizen group/family etc)
- Number of days
- Distance you are willing to travel
Based on your selection, Yoplr will suggest you destinations and PoIs (i.e point of interests). You can add/remove PoIs based, select timing of the visit – in short, plan your entire trip.
Saved information can be emailed/downloaded (PDF) etc.
While there are several startups looking at travel space (look at Travel related startups in India), I clearly see a differentiator in Yoplr – it does solves a big issue in planning trips and most importantly, the site is very neatly done.
The interface is very intuitive and the product, of course needs to add relevant data (for e.g. where is the CCD in Bangalore-Mysore highway? etc) – but that’s part of the expansion plan.
Overall, we like Yoplr and recommend it for your travel needs.
