The Social Travel Makes It Easy for Users to Meet Facebook Friends

 - Jul 14, 2015
When most people think about an upcoming trip they'd like to take, it usually revolves around an end destination—The Social Travel is a new platform that aims to shift this focus from places to people.

The Social Travel (TST) was newly launched as a website in partnership with Skyscanner and BlaBlaBla Car. Users are encouraged to sign on and add their Facebook friends, so that they are able to begin putting together a "social travel map." To make this even more appealing to young Millennials, the tool also begins calculating the cheapest routes, best air fares and car sharing services.

Settling on a destination, cost and finding the right travel partner are usually factors that inhibit travel, but by rethinking the way trips are decided upon, planned and organized, The Social Travel simplifies all of these issues faced by the modern traveler.
