A trip planner is a website dedicated to travelling. Its aim is to help the users plan their individual trips. The site contains a database of points of interest, often enhanced with user reviews. The site may also offer booking of travel related services (such as hotel or car hire).

Video-based trip planner[edit]

With a video-based trip planner, a user can generate a travel itinerary by adding points of interest while watching videos.

Automated trip planner[edit]

Automated trip planners generate your itinerary automatically, based on the information you provide. One way is to submit the desired destination, dates of your trip and interests. Or the information can be provided by forwarding confirmation e-mails from airlines, hotels and car rental companies.[1]

Custom trip planner[edit]

With a custom trip planner the user creates one’s own travel itinerary individually by picking the appropriate activities from a database. Some of these websites offer pre-built databases of points of interest, while others rely on user generated content.
