Launching today, GoPlanit deals provides tourists a way to save money while planning the details of a trip.  “Deals sites have proven to be very successful with locals,” says CEO, Steve Chen.  “But, we’re targeting a market that has been previously neglected - tourists.  Our planning tool has always focused on helping them create a useful trip in the least amount of time.  By integrating local deals, we now offer tourists a great way to save money on things they want to do and see.”
