Planning a vacation can be stressful when one has to book flights and hotels, research on things to do, restaurants and clubs. And then there’s the question of how to manage all these things in the number of days you have on that next vacation you are excited about. You may have to squander through enumerable resources to find the best deals at your destination. And what about the reviews of each restaurant or hotel?

TripFab claims to do all that for you in one place. Not yet launched for the travelers out there, it seems to be a great one-stop resource that will plan it all out for you. Check out their demo video to see how TripFab will manage that exotic vacation for you:

Some of the highlights of this website are:

  1. Search for hotels, restaurants and see user-submitted reviews.
  2. Manage your daily activities in terms of costs and time.
  3. Look up hotels, restaurants, clubs and other activities in the destinations; and their details like timings, costs, how to reach there, tips, FAQs etc.
  4. Bookings are directly through the website. You can make payments and reserve rooms & restaurants directly from the business. Even contact the business directly – email, live chat (if available) or call (if available).
  5. You can call the business with your inquiries from the website itself.
  6. Create and manage single- or multi-day trips. Plan your activities by just drag-dropping your selections to specific days and see the total amount you may be spending in a day.
  7. One of the amazing features of this website is they will send your information to the business (privacy? Optional?) so that the business can offer additional deals to you.

Our wishlist and questions for TripFab:

  1. Of course, flight booking. This is the first step any traveler will look at which usually takes the most chunk out of the overall budget. Or at least flight lookup that one can add to their itineraries – enter the airline number and date of travel and it will give you all the information like airport codes, gate numbers, timings.
  2. Rental car lookup and booking.
  3. Integration with websites like Yelp, Zomato, etc. for user-submitted reviews.
  4. Information on public transportation – timings, maps, routes, etc.
  5. Specific deals on attractions – for example, if you purchase the ticket for London Eye, you get a 50% discount on your ticket price for Madame Tussauds in London. Not sure if these will be taken care of.
  6. How about some packing lists?
  7. How about some notes? A traveler can add their own notes for individual items.
  8. Some basic information on different countries – currency, power sockets and types, languages spoken, maps, etc.

As we said earlier, planning a trip is not easy and having a one-stop website to manage a trip is even difficult with so many resources out there that will help you plan it out. Yet, we are hoping TripFab will launch soon and we are excited to try it out.
