TripAttitude: travel in a group, and cheaper!
The start-up TripAttitude, launched in November 2011, is a community platform for group purchases of thematic trips at decreasing prices.
Travelers register on the site detailing their preferences in terms of travel themes and types of co-travelers sought. They can then select the trip that interests them and reserve their seat (s). The trip will be confirmed automatically as soon as the minimum number of travelers required is reached. All Internet users who have registered for this trip are guaranteed to leave at the defined price (maximum price), the goal being to reach the maximum number of travelers to pay the minimum price.
Compare flights with SkyScanner
Another way to prepare for your vacation, but with an app this time: SkyScanner allows its users to search for the cheapest flights at any time directly on their smartphones. Available in 23 languages, the app compares more than 600 airlines and thousands of routes. The results are displayed in the form of a price table allowing to detect the best period to go on vacation.
