Travel planning with friends on mobile – Indonesia Expat
Imagine you only have five days off from work and want to plan a unique and memorable trip to Bali with the best friends you haven’t met in ages.
To make the most of our limited days off and have the most memorable experience with your friends, we’ll need to plan the trip well in advance.
The first thing we do in trip planning is decide on the trip days when most of your travel companions can join the trip. One week trip in August could start from from August 6 to 13, for example.
When the dates are decided, it is also important to note the budget for the trip – how much everyone is willing to spend on the trip, for example around 10 million rupees per person. This can be done by roughly estimating the cost of transportation, accommodation, activities, guides, food, etc. This is important to not overspend and manage the expectations of everyone joining the trip.
Once the schedule and budget are established, we can explore interesting places and pleasant activities for everyone during the trip. Some people traveling can go sightseeing and relish the local cuisine, while others can enjoy sports and nature. We can pre-select places and activities to do and then create a day-to-day itinerary.
Once itineraries are complete and people joining the trip are confirmed, we can begin booking the trip. Booking travel usually involves booking flights or other means of transportation and accommodation. If we visit several places in a day that are not accessible by foot, we will have to rent a car. Some popular attractions, such as Bali Safari or Bali Bird Park may offer advance online ticket purchases. Adventure tours, such as canyoning in Lampah or ATV rides, can usually be booked in advance so tour operators can prepare equipment before we arrive.
There are many things to organize and coordinate between travel companions and also with travel agencies or operators. Therefore, we will usually elect a trip leader to make the decision and make the reservations. Fortunately, the trip leader can use EzeeGo.appa smart trip planner app to plan and book the trip.
EzeeGo.app can create a travel itinerary based on travelers’ schedules, budgets, and activity preferences. By using EzeeGo.app, the trip leader can get the trip itinerary recommendation, adjust it accordingly, and then invite the travel companions. Invited travel companions can see the trip itinerary and trip budget estimates. When the planning is complete, the trip leader can request a quote from the EzeeGo team. The EzeeGo Travel Advisor will quote based on the trip requirements (e.g. flight, accommodation, car rental, attraction tickets, etc.). If you accept the quote, you can make the payment online and then prepare for the trip. Isn’t it easy?
