“Digital greatly influences travel planning from the very first stages of the consumer journey, with 65% of leisure travelers researching online before they even decide where or how to go.” says Google at its Traveler’s Road to Decision report.
A new travel inspiration app GoingPlaces, provides a unique solution for many travel suppliers wanting to reach the mobile market. GoingPlaces showcases pictures and videos from companies and consumers are inspired by photos at the ease of a swipe, and from within the app can link to the supplier’s website.
One GoingPlaces user explains, “It feels like I have explored the world on the app! It is a lot of fun, very similar to a dating app except for destinations instead of people… Now that I am on my way to Shanghai for the weekend, I have been referring to one of the partners on the app, The China Guide, for more info.”
Founder, Cal Simmons, says “I have always been impressed with the power of photography and how it can inspire travel. GoingPlaces allows consumers to connect with the travel supplier behind the picture.”
