As we have stated before, Travelindicator started out of a conviction that something was missing in the land of travel websites. On the one hand, the internet is filled with many great travel blogs giving general traveling tips or zooming in on very specific locations that they have discovered, inspiring us all. On the other hand there are the Trip Advisors and Lonely Planets of this world. Their role is to give you all the miniscule details once you have picked the destination. Where to stay, what sights to see, what to eat, that sort of stuff.
All of that definitely serves its purpose and it would not be an understatement to say the supply of such sites is somewhat saturated. But what website do you go if:
1. You want to travel and know what you want out of a holiday but have no idea where to go? (example: you want to make a city trip to a desination that scores high in the areas of culture and architecture)
2. You have no idea which destination you will be able to afford? (example: you have a budget of $500, both for getting there and staying the night in a hotel)
3. You have no idea which destinations are nearest to you? (example: you want to go somewhere which is in driving distance, 500km or 250 miles)
4. You have no idea what the weather will be like? (example: you want to go on a beach holiday but prefer not to get soaking wet from rain while chilling out on the beach)
That's where Travelindicator now comes in and why we exist. We categorise locations by (monthly) temperature and rainfall, by exact location, by price (live average hotel prices per city and estimated flight prices) and by attributes.
What we mean by attributes are the qualities of each location (as voted for by you, the users), of which there are quite a few, for instance: Adventure, Culture, Beaches, Mountains, Deserts, Eating and Going Out, Shopping... Mix and match as you like, take away your results and make a choice! Or go ahead and book that hotel on Travelindicator instantly :-)
