Smart Trip Platform – A blockсhain-enabled ecosystem that connects travelers and travel service providers to create unforgettable trips
Travel business has been showing amazing growth in the past years, far outstripping the growth of the global GDP as a whole, and will continue to do so in the next decade. The use of the most innovative digital technologies has been one of the prime movers of this growth, creating such online travel giants as AirBnb and TripAdvisor. However, even these seemingly innovative projects may soon become outdated with the arrival of the blockchain technology. Cryptocurrencies, decentralized structures, smart contracts will soon define the new face of the travel industry.
The Smart Trip Platform is created as a revolutionary ecosystem that will bring together travellers and tourist service providers from all across the globe. It is both an ultimate resource for organizing trips – from building an itinerary to renting a car, from hiring a jungle guide to booking an apartment – and a dynamic self-organizing community, where tourists and travel specialists can do much more than sell or purchase services. Our platform will provide its users all the advantages of the blockchain technology: instant and secure payments, transparency of transactions, safe decentralized data storage, a well-developed conflict resolution system, and infinite opportunities for expansion.
The Smart Trip Platform is designed as the ultimate solution to the issues plaguing both travellers and travel service providers: it is an ecosystem that allows all users to connect directly, plan trips efficiently and quickly, save money, and participate in a dynamic community. Smart Trip Platform will not only provide an extremely wide range of services – from boat rentals to safaris – but will also act as a true knowledge base. It is a brand-new model of travel – minimizing time spent on research and maximizing the authenticity of the experience.
One of the great advantages of the blockchain technology is that new functions can be easily added using the existing or slightly modified smart contracts while preserving the transparency and full security of all transactions. The platform can develop as a mostly decentralized ecosystem, providing its users with a great opportunity to participate in a dynamic community, become recognized experts, and realize their professional and personal goals.
Both types of accounts will provide many similar functions but are divided for taxation purposes and to simplify the calculation of fees and commissions. Owners of business accounts will have a greater access to advertising tools on the platform and will be able to obtain various extra services in exchange for an optional monthly subscription fee; further, business accounts will face certain limitations on contacting private users in order to avoid spam. All internal payments within the platform will be carried out using TripCash – official platform’s tokens. Users will be able to store both TripCash and a wide range of cryptocurrencies in their individual platform’s wallets, instantly exchanging between various cryptocurrencies.
Below is a diagram representing the overall structure of the platform:
The Smart Trip Platform will allow users to plan a trip from scratch, without having to switch between lots of different resources, books, and websites. In our Trip Planner, one will find transportation schedules, accommodation options, vehicle rentals, excursions, trekking guides, and much more. Users will be able to build and itinerary and plan it on the map, buy transport tickets, and book places to stay. The system will provide tips on the most popular attractions and local cultures, including details that cannot be found in standard guidebooks. To start building their dream trip, the user will simply need to pick a location and a type of services to see the best deals posted directly by service providers. For communication with travel business around the world, users can use the 2-way voice & text translation service
– Transportation. The Smart Trip Platform will allow users to buy tickets for flights, buses, trains, and ferries, rent a car, or order a taxi. Since the directory will be built by local service providers and well-informed users who are registered on the platform (and who will be rewarded with rating points), travellers will get an opportunity to book local transport that is not normally known or available to tourists (fast boats on the Mekong or river canoes around Pantanal in Brazil, for example). We are negotiating with local transportation providers in each destination to integrate their services into the platform. Besides, just like with accommodation, services of a leading provider of ticket booking services will be integrated into the platform for users’ convenience.
Accommodation.This section will help users select the best accommodation in a chosen location, including hotels, hostels, an apartment, a room in a private house, a camping spot, or even book shared accommodation together with other travellers. Just like with transportation, users will have access to accommodation options specific for a certain destination. Once again, the Smart Trip Platform will establish partnership with local tourist authorities and accommodation chains. All those properties that now are present on various specialized resources (booking.com, Hostelworld, AirBnB, campingeurope.com, etc.) will be brought together on a single platform for the first time. The Smart Trip Platform will establish a partnership with one of the leading accommodation booking systems in order to provide users with even more hotel and hostel options.
Excursions, treks, expeditions, and safaris. Be it a trek above 20 thousand feet in the Andes or a journey to meet hill tries in Laos, travellers will find the best offers on the Smart Trip Platform. The section will include services by both local travel agencies and individual guides; cutting out intermediaries will allow us to offer the best prices.
My Ads section of the platform will serve as the main tool for travel businesses to advertise their services or for private users to request or offer a paid service. Business account holders will need to place their basic service ad that will serve as the basis for their activity on the platform: for example, a guesthouse will need to post a description of rooms with prices; a professional trekking guide will have to compile a description of itineraries, etc. The range of ads that can be offered by business and private account holders is extremely wide:
– Accommodation. Hotels, hostels, guesthouses, private houses, rooms, campsites; in essence, all those who now use Booking, HostelWorld, AirBnB etc. will be able to join and save on commissions.
– Transportation and food. car rental companies, drivers with their own cars, taxis and tuk-tuks, boat owners, cruise agencies, train and plane ticket resellers, bus ticket vendors, restaurant and cafe owners: all will be welcome to join.
– Guiding services. trekking and mountaineering guides, wildlife and birdwatching specialists, safari operators, organizers of boat excursions, guides in cities and around cultural attractions, agencies arranging desert expeditions – the possibilities are endless. Both businesses and private individuals will be able to advertise their services.
– Volunteer and adventure projects. travel is not only about moving from place to place: one of the most gratifying experiences abroad can be a week spent with elephants on Sri Lanka or even a month at a research station in Tasmania. The Smart Trip Platform will become a great solution for those who are looking for more hands-on, authentic travel experiences.
– Private ads. Need someone to go to the bus station in Cusco and get a schedule for buses going to Lake Titicaca? Or would you like someone to bring you very particular flower seeds from Malaysia? Or perhaps you want to sell your collection of guidebooks? All you have to do is choose the location and decide if you are ready to pay in TripCash (Smart Trip Platform tokens – more details below) or how much your services cost.
– Looking for travel companions. At present, TripAdvisor and the Lonely Planet ThornTree forum are flooded by threads written by people who search for travel buddies, be it for a whole trip or simply for a few days – to divide the expense of renting a jeep with a driver, for example. The Smart Trip Platform will be the first to provide automatized services of travel buddy search.
– Travel with a guru. This unique option will allow experienced travellers to earn money by taking on less experienced tourists. In essence, those users who would like to go on an independent trip to their dream destination without paying thousands for a group tour with an agency will be able to join “travel gurus” and pay a percentage of their experienced travel companion’s expenditures. In exchange, such a travel guru needs to prepare a detailed itinerary and budget and publish them on the platform; if a willing travel companion is found, the “guru” bears the full responsibility for organizing the trip and dealing with all the issues on the road. A cross between a private tour guide and hardcore independent travel, it is a way for experienced travellers to pay for their trips and for less experienced ones to live an authentic adventure while avoiding a lot of the stress.
