Road Trip Planner and Online Travel Guide

Trip Cart

Southern-California-Coast-License-Plate-M

has all the makings of an innovative travel site that integrates vacation research and planning tools with user generated content, social networking and a great mapping mashup. In my brief review I was impressed with the ease of using the site and collecting stuff that normally has to be gathered from different sites. The only disappointment was the third party booking functionality. I’d like to see that integrated into the site allowing a confirmed trip to be stored. Overall a very interesting approach and a great integration of tools. Would like to see them adding the rest of the world at some stage.

This is the type of functionality destination websites should offer. They have all the necessary information available to present it in this dynamic fashion and as this example shows, it can be done successfully even without a fully integrated booking functionality by partnering with one or various commercial sites.
