With the competitive world engulfing our life more and more, it’s only natural that once in a while we tune out of it and go to new places to discover new cultures, people and, most importantly ourselves. But, what should be a rejuvenating experience turns out be a taxing one when we have to plan the vacation, right from the places to visit, to food to try, the best days to visit etc. This is where Trip n Howl, an out of the box travel social networking platform built for trip lovers comes into the picture.
What is trip n howl?
The platform allows travelers/tourists to connect with friends, other travellers, and plan their trips and share their trip moments with their friends and an online travel community. A Bangalore based startup, trip n howl is a revolutionary product of Bizy Dale Networking Services Pvt Ltd, one of the emerging business and technology startup company, which has top industry brass like Volkswagen, Hebron Group, Vision Films etc. as its clients.
How trip n howl came into existence?
Launched on 6 July 2016, the idea for the platform came to Bizy Dale’s founder and CEO Satyajeet Pradhan when he and his friends used to plan for their trips through different social media sites like Facebook, Whatsapp etc. Since they were frequent trip goers, they soon realised that planning holidays through social media was a big mess as their trip-specific news would often get lost among other posts in the News Feed. He and his fellow trip goers then tried out some trip specific social networking sites but soon realised they were just like normal blogging sites and didn’t offer a more frequent two-way communication. This is when he decided to start trip n howl.
Though trip n howl has a few international competitors like HelloTel, WayN and TripIt, it is the first Indian travel social networking site. The site is more than just blogging site, it offers users an interactive platform to connect, discuss, plan and cherish their trip moments with their friends, family and circles. The users can also skim through the several travel packages being offered by travel agencies or hotels based on their plan. The planner acts as a pseudo travel agent and help users get a complete understanding of distance, time and best way to travel to their selected place through the integrated Google map.
The Founder – Satyajeet Pradhan
A startup specialist, Satyajeet believes Risk taking attitude and Fear to lose are the only ingredients that a startup owner needs to become and sustain success. A post graduate in Management and an alumnus of Oxford Group of Institutions, Bangalore, he had been a performer through out his job career. He has also been awarded with Hall of Fame from Hinduja Global solutions and creation of resplendent milestones from Airtel for his remarkable performance at job. He has played a crucial part in the success of a startup which later got acquired by leading automotive portal company, Carwale.
Since the day of its launch, trip n howl has been receiving tremendous response. While the platform itself receives close to 1.5K and more page views every month, its Facebook posts also reaches more than 7000 users every week. In fact, famous personalities like Prison Break actor Steve Barnes, Dil Dosti fame Ishita Sharma, Charles Wieand, CamMiPham, Harjinder S Kukreja, John Lincoln (CEO of Ignite Visibility-the no.1 SEO company USA and UK) and more are even following trip n howl on twitter.
According to Satyajeet, this is just the starting for trip n howl. The founder already has a road map in mind to make the platform a one stop solution for travellers. The platform’s mobile app is currently in progress and will be soon available to Android users.
