Skyscanner new ‘Road Trips’ Planner Makes It Easier than Ever to Book a Multi-Stop Trip

August 5, 2021 OTA News No Comments

 Skyscanner has launched a new road trip travel planner, Road Trips, in partnership with Inspirock, the AI-powered personalized itinerary platform. 

The new Road Trips feature combines the ease and simplicity of Skyscanner’s booking services with Inspirock’s AI personalization engine for sightseeing and activities, so travellers can plan the perfect road trip; including optimal routes, hotels and accommodations and car hire options, and an itinerary of fun and enjoyment.

With searches for domestic travel currently taking the lion’s share of 2021 searches on Skyscanner Australia and an increase in car hire searches, Skyscanner has developed the tool to meet growing traveller demands for trip inspiration and travel options within their own countries.

Skyscanner wanted to deliver an end-to-end road trip planner with tailored recommendations for everything from where to stay to what to see, do, enjoy, and experience. The company turned to Inspirock to leverage its powerful algorithms and unparalleled reach in over 80,000 destinations worldwide, which enable personalised itineraries for travellers based on their unique interests, desired destination and trip duration, time of year, and other key factors.

Paul Cumins, Head of Car Hire at Skyscanner, said: 

“As Australians look to Spring and Summer holidays and domestic travel the agenda for the time being, we’re seeing traveller are yearning to explore new places and favourite destinations once again. Many travellers are opting for driving holidays, reviving the adventurous spirit of the road trip and discovering (or rediscovering) places closer to home in their State or once they’ve not travelled to before.

“Skyscanner’s recently published travel trends revealed a shift towards smaller rural or coastal destinations and now Skyscanner can help those travellers who were still keen on an escape in their own backyard make the planning all that more simpler.”

Anoop Goyal, CEO and Co-Founder of Inspirock, said: 

“Skyscanner has always helped travellers easily find the best prices and trip options to suit their travel needs, and now together, we’ve created the ultimate tool for personalised road trips. Travellers today seek more than just the logistics of where to stay and the best route to get from A to B and B to C — they want to make the most of their precious holiday time by maximising their enjoyment of activities and experiences along the way, and that are tailored to them.

RoadTrips is currently live as a beta and available on the Skyscanner platform in five countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and Ireland. The service is easy to use and hassle-free: simply select your starting destination, preferred trip duration, and departure date, and Road Trips automatically generates a selection of real itineraries with travel times, stops, accommodations, activities, and more. You can further narrow your selection by themes (such as Family, Culture, Outdoors, or Romantic), and adjust the itinerary to suit your personal preferences. Whether you’re seeking crowd-pleasers or off-the-path experiences, RoadTrips is the easiest way to ensure an exceptional driving holiday experience.
