Though there are number of travel portals that help users make their travel arrangements and bookings, when it comes to finding more about the place you are visiting or staying at, it gets real tough to find information in real time.
Bangalore based startup, Trip38, wants to help users to get this information. A mobile first solution, Trip38 is available on Android and Windows Phone. An iOS version is expected in the next couple of days. The mobile application provides location based content such as sightseeing options, weather, hotel offers/deals, and embassy/consulate information.
Once you finish booking and planning your trip on a travel portal, you have to email the city name, hotel confirmation vouchers and the travel dates to Trip38. The app then downloads your itinerary and all related information.
The application works even without an Internet connection once the whole itinerary is downloaded. This is really great as it will save roaming charges which usually cost a lot.
Corporate, hotels and travel sites can partner with the startup in order to promote their offers/deals.
Trip38 was launched at bigMobilityConf today.
