YourTour has partnered with Atlanta, Santa Clara, Mammoth Lakes, and Philadelphia Convention & Visitor’s Bureaus offering innovative online travel planning solutions helping vacationers better arrange their tour and travel schedules. With YourTour’s privately branded white-labeled tool, CVB’s can promote destinations, boost website traffic, and increase local travel. YourTour was recently integrated into Rapid City CVB website resulting in a striking increase in itineraries planned by travelers. Keep an eye out for further announcements when Atlanta, Santa Clara, Mammoth Lakes, and Philadelphia CVB websites are updated with this new travel application.
In addition to Convention & Visitor's Bureaus, YourTour works with destination marketing organizations, interactive marketing firms, travel networks, and travel agencies. As reported by the NAJ Group, YourTour has developed what many believe to be the next generation tour-building application that provides a robustness that far exceeds the plethora of shopping cart-style itinerary builders found on most destination websites.
Powerful and Innovative Technology
After answering a few basic questions about their trip (like when and where they want to go), YourTour users receive an initial tour proposal in just seconds. A detailed itinerary recommends tourist attractions and hotel accommodations;
all displayed on maps thanks to Google’s cartography tools. Next, users can specify their preferences (budget, activity types, specific attractions or hotels) and request an updated, more personalized tour proposal. Once they get the trip they want, travelers can book all of their hotels in a single click. They can also share their itineraries with friends or followers on various social networks.
The YourTour decision support system is driven by a sophisticated computation engine. This tour planning engine takes into account hotel availability and rates, driving time, attractions’
opening days and hours, to create trip proposals that best suit the individual traveler, from budget to luxury tours. This one of a kind technology is the fruit of more than ten years of university research.
