Inspirock – Plan the Perfect Trip

Guidebooks often become outdated before they’ve even gone to print, and online travel forums are full of sketchy information. Inspirock is a trip planning application that combines the usefulness of guidebooks and forums, making it easier for travelers to create day-by-day itineraries for upcoming trips.

When you get tired of skimming through hundreds of travel websites while planning an upcoming vacation, click over to Inspirock. Enter your destination, trip dates, and a few personalization options (like preferred activities or travel styles), and then click “See the Plan.” Inspirock will immediately provide you with a detailed itinerary, complete with recommendations on where to stay, what to do, and where to eat during your trip. You can adjust your day-by-day schedule based on any activities you already had planned, and compare hotels based on how much you’re hoping to spend. In many cases, you can book hotels directly through Inspirock.

Inspirock has partnered with travel agents who can help its users with additional planning necessities, like finding hotels, flights, trains, transfers, and even guides in foreign destinations. The web-based platform also provides space for users to write notes to themselves for future references, along with the ability to save plans for future trips and share plans with friends on social networks like Facebook.

  • Plan a family vacation to Italy
  • Compare hotel prices in Spain

  • Ask friends on social media for trip planning advice
