Use Tripobox to plan your group trip. Cover every angle to create the perfect vacation.
Somewhere between Orbitz and Airbnb, Tripobox allows you to reserve everything from beds to bike tours in a handful of popular cities. You create your vacation starting with your travel dates and your city of choice, and Tripobox provides dozens of possibilities to have an exciting, yet comfortable vaction. Many of the activities and accommodations are offered by small businesses or people looking to make a little extra money by sharing their homes. It’s as if you get to know the proprietors before trying them out; truly a luxury when you’re in a new city. The activities are geared towards a young, adventurous crowd.
Planning a vacation for several people inevitably becomes unwieldy and complicated. One of Tripobox‘s many features is the ability to coordinate and stay connected with your fellow trip-mates. The ‘host’ of the trip can add activities to an interactive itinerary, trip-mates can vote and comment on different ideas, and, best of all, the trip costs can be divided and paid online.
So I’ve had the idea of traveling to Berlin rolling around in my head for the last couple years…maybe it’s time I actually do it! My friend, Jim, speaks a little German, and he loves beer, so I’ll invite him. After we fly into the city and catch up over a couple drinks, Jim and I will eat a Vegan Mediterranean meal offered by two local Germans. After we hit the pub we can do the All in One City Bike tour, complete with a stop at a beer garden, for only 20 bucks (don’t worry, my balance is impeccable). That night we can sleep it off in the Titanic Comfort Hotel for $70 each. The great part about Tripobox is that it exposes me to activities I never would have found on my own–graffiti tours, laser tag, kayaking – and I can reserve my space and pay online. Tripobox is worth a try.
