New Dynamic Maps Improve Trip Planning

TripHub's new TripMaps allow groups to more easily plan and share trip information. If you're visually oriented, this is a dream come true. The maps are essentially a mash-up of trip elements from each group member (think wedding location, museum visit, restaurant for dinner, theater shows, hotels), plus you can easily add search results for local activities, accommodations, and more to your group's trip map.

According to a recent group travel survey by PhoCusWright, 80 percent of group travelers find maps and driving directions to be the most helpful trip planning tools. TripHub took PhocusWright's data to heart and listened to its customers and by creating maps that allow groups to see where activities, events, and accommodations are in relation to each other and to other local landmarks in a destination. You can also get driving directions to any of these locations within your trip website and print both maps and directions. Most convenient!

Note: The maps require whoever sets up the trip to use a valid city name (Las Vegas instead of Vegas, New York City instead of NYC, for instance).
