Personal Online Travel Assistant – Perfect Planning with Plnnr

What can be more fun than travel? For some, it is a trip preparation, because you virtually start your journey, and all ways and opportunities are open in front you. But that may be a complicated and tiresome process as well, especially if you plan multiple destinations in different countries. It becomes even more challenging, if you decided to get a hot “last minute” deal, and you do not have enough time for the proper trip preparation ahead of time.

As usual, free online service may offer a great assistance. And one of them, worth to look into, is Plnnr. Plnnr will automatically generate your free personalized ready-to-use itinerary in few easy steps, including scheduled daily routes, navigating directions, hotel price comparison, and attractions information.

The service is especially useful if you choose to visit some fairly popular travel destination, like London in UK, Barcelona in Spain, or Rome in Italy. Following review is offered by AddictiveTips:

When you launch the wizard for the first time, it will take you through a series of questions, starting with what your destination is, and then going through the nature of your trip, traveling dates, number of persons, and the amount of luxury you want. With these few answers, Plnnr will generate your very own, personalized travel itinerary containing your entire day-by-day schedule (as recommended by Plnnr) for your whole trip. They also recommend what hotel would suit your choices, and also have some discount deals that you may want to check out.

Once an itinerary has been generated, you can fine tune it as much as you want, changing all the aspects. The best thing about Plnnr is that it lays out the foundations for your entire plan, and then gives you the freedom to modify anything and everything. If you’re on a leisure trip, Plnnr would also include a guide on what locations to visit and sights to see.
