Alocato is a new domestic getaway tool aimed at helping travelers plan short regional vacations. Instead of focusing on the most popular cities across the world, Alocato helps consumers discover exciting destinations that are much closer to them.

Alocato uses a bank of algorithmically generated destinations to offer curated lists of possible things to do. The suggestions are all made based on where the user is located in order to narrow down nearby getaways. The online tool is aimed at people who may have a tight schedule and budget, but are still interested in taking a short vacation. Because regional travel is less expensive and less time-sensitive, it is easy for consumers to use the tool to book a domestic getaway on short notice.

Alocato fills an important gap in the travel market by solely focusing on local and regional destinations. For anyone who doesn't have the time or money to fly halfway across the globe, this clever online tool can help you find an amazing local destination instead.
