A new startup, Bon Voyaging, is walking the well-worn trail of custom trip curation, with an online interface that offers an elegant means of collecting points of interest into shareable itineraries for specific trips.
Many other startups have plied this trade, from startups like Tripomatic and Dcovery to more established players such as Gogobot. It’s a crowded field that hasn’t had any clear success stories, and quite a few quiet flameouts – especially difficult given the challenge at monetizing the model.
Bon Voyaging has an Orbitz link-off to book hotels and flights off site, but at the moment doesn’t have a direct integration on site. The app is also free to use, so at some point any traction will need to be converted in order to make this into a business.
