Wanderfly is a travel application that helps people discover new destinations around the world. Focusing more on the overall experience than the specific destination itself, Wanderfly offers up inspiring vacation ideas based on each user’s specific budget, interests, and dates of travel. Once a destination has been selected, the application also helps out with all the details—providing all the tools necessary to organize, book, and share travel plans without having to leave the Wanderfly site.
In order for Wanderfly to come up with custom vacation ideas for you and your family, you’ll need to tell the app exactly what you’re looking for. Type in your departure city, budget range, travel dates, and select an area of the world you’d like to explore. You can also select one or more interests, like food, beach, casinos, or entertainment, to help put Wanderfly on the right track with its recommendations. Based on the information you put in, Wanderfly will come up with a vacation plan customized to your finances and personal taste. On one page, you’ll find recommended flights, hotels, and activities to try while you’re away. If that’s not what you’re looking for, click the arrow on the right to see the next best option. Wanderfly makes it easy to share these trip ideas with friends and family via email, Facebook, or Twitter, allowing you to solicit feedback and opinions from trip mates before making a final decision.
Once you’ve found a trip that looks up your alley, click on the “Book It” button to reserve and pay for the trip you’ve selected. You’ll need to sign up for a Wanderfly account to purchase a trip, however accounts are completely free and easy to sign up for. For romantic travelers, families, backpackers, and anyone else who’s ever wanted to go on a vacation without having to figure out all the messy details, Wanderfly takes the pain of planning out of the equation.
