Boulder, CO, September 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Home&Abroad, an industry leader in online trip planning, was recently recognized by Travel+Leisure Magazine as one of the web’s top 25 essential tools for travel planning. Listing sites for everything from booking a flight to finding a hotel to building a packing list, Home&Abroad was the only itinerary building website recommended by the magazine.
“It’s gratifying to be recognized by such a leader in the world of travel as Travel+Leisure Magazine,” said Mark Schroeder, founder and CEO of Home&Abroad. “We’ve worked exceptionally hard to get to this point, and we’re still refining our Trip Planning engine and adding new destinations. We’ll soon be rolling out a whole new interface that will make our site even more user-friendly than it is now.”
The free H&A Trip Planner allows users to build trips from top to bottom for 90+ destinations. Offering both a fully automated option that generates itineraries based on interests, trip themes, dates of travel, and a number of other variables, as well as a fully manual option that allows users to browse sites and build their own trips, the website is suitable for everyone from novice to the well-seasoned traveler. For those who just want to grab a trip and go, the City Expert generated “Dream Trips” offer great ready-made itineraries full of restaurant and shopping recommendations, and other invaluable tips.
But once the itinerary is built, the usability doesn’t stop there. Site users may also find and book a hotel, find nearby restaurants, buy useful maps, phrase, and guide books, and download free destination- and site-specific activities that will keep the whole family interested and engaged.
