Your itinerary rated by the crowd
Travel planning is too damn hard! You buy the travel books, read the forums, put together a sweet itinerary and you still aren't sure. So you go to the forums and post your itinerary and kindly ask for reviews...crickets. Or trolls. Or maybe a nice comment or suggestion, if you wait long enough. And which forum was that? There are so many. Wouldn't it be great if there was one place you could post your itinerary for review and expect timely and useful ratings from people who had actually been there? That's what we aim to do with Itinerated.
Itinerated will be a fun web application that lets you create an itinerary and get it rated by the crowd. You also get to rate other people's itineraries, which is a great way to discover new itineraries and unlock more features for your account, like immediate alerts when your itinerary gets a new rating. It's free for the basic features plus there are a couple of paid premium levels that have some great features for power travelers.
You can help make this happen. Preorder a $25 basic paid plan and you get Itinerated for life (normally it's a one year subscription) or $50 for a lifetime subscription to the power traveler paid plan.
