NEW YORK, November 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

TripTogether has gone live with a groundbreaking new travel planning feature.  The travel planner allows members to quickly and easily find travel partners for exciting holidays all over the world, thanks to its simplicity and accessibility.  People want to travel with a partner, but they often don't know anyone who wants to go to the same place they do.  TripTogether's travel planner remedies this situation by helping people find other single travelers interested in the same destination.  

Anthony Volpe, Chief Marketing Officer, explained the feature, "Once someone has signed up and created a profile, they only have to click on the world map to select a region and country that they want to travel to.  They can begin browsing profiles, and a green and white map pin in the top left of a person's photo shows that they have a trip planned. The dates and destinations of all their trips are displayed in this tab, and the viewer can quickly determine if this person is going to a destination that excites them."

When a member finds someone who is going on a trip that interests them, they can send them a message or they can open up a chat session to find out more information about the trip and their potential travel partner.  This is where the value of TripTogether truly begins to display itself; introducing travelers to each other so that they can share stories of past trips and plan future trips together.  Members can also cultivate their international relations by inviting travelers to their home city, showing them secret places that only the locals know about.
