1 Log in to your account

You will be, then, redirected to your Trekeffect home page. From there, you can add a trek (travel itinerary) by clicking the add trek button – the green plus sign on the right corner of the page.

Then, create a Trek name, and select a category (city life or adventure).

 

3 Pick a country set the dates

Next, select the country where you want to go, and set the dates of your trip.

 

4 Add friends

Type the email addresses of the friends who are coming with you on your trip, and click “send invites”. If, however, you are traveling solo, just hit “skip”.

You will be navigated to your trek’s homepage. Once there, you can upload the cover photo of your trek as well as add a description for it.

 

 

Then, click “Timeline”, to start adding venues to your trek.

 

6 Adding Venues

On your Timeline page, click browse locations.

Ultimately, you will be transferred to this page.

 

Browse the categories, and pick the city where you are going. Alternatively, you can find your preferred city by using the search function on your upper right corner.

Then, on your city page, click “Venues”, and look for the specific place or venue that you want to visit. Let’s say you want to make a stop to Empire State Building.

 

At the Empire State Building page, hit the plus button (+), to add this New York venue on your trek.

Set your arrival date, time and departure for your selected venue.  Then, click “Save to Trek”.

The pains of travel planning

The most difficult part about traveling is planning. Trust me, planning a trip can be quite a hassle and time-consuming task, even for seasoned travel junkies. Sure, there are plenty of good sources online, but they can very often make travel planning even more complicated and confusing.

There are practically hundreds or even thousands of route planners and online sources that promote trips, hotels, and destinations, leaving you and other unrelenting backpackers or travelers even more puzzled.  A number of recent market research studies have shown that people on average spend months and over 25 hours visiting dozens of websites or blogs like Trip Advisor, reading reviews, and purchasing guidebooks just to plan a trip.

On top of that, reviews can sometimes be a bit irritating to get through, data on transportation can be wrong or outdated, and it can take a great deal of your time and effort to keep an eye on all the different deals and offers available online. With the industry in travel planning being so disorganized and fragmented, it’s easy to see why travelers very often feel overwhelmed whenever they plan a trip.

 

An efficient and easy way to plan a trip 

Wouldn’t it be nice if you can plan a trip, and get all the necessary information for your vacation in one spot?  Thankfully, though, there is Trekeffect, an innovative solution that makes travel planning a walk in the park.
