Why Itineraries Matter

Travel planning is the bane of a traveler’s existence. Trusted, hand-crafted itineraries provide a Holy Grail solution.

Bindu Trips, with 1000 DIY travel itineraries by 150 professional travel writers, takes the pain out of planning. Longer and more frequent trips ensue. Happiness and gratitude flow.

I believe that LP’s acquisition and utilization of the Bindu platform would unlock enormous value to your readers/users, clients, advertisers.

Contextual data is King.

Travel data (i.e. hotel, restaurant reviews) by itself isn’t particularly valuable. What *is* valuable is data within a context, POIs knitted together to create cohesive day, weekend and week-long getaways.

Bindu Trips is a marketing machine with content supplied by longtime and local experts who inspire and encourage travelers to go away, often.
