    Pros: 

    Easy to use, beautiful design and a great experience overall.

    Cons: 

    Would

    This is genius! I love that I can plan a trip and rely only on my preference or choice of destination. If people want to join in - they can! I'm an independent traveler and I love to meet people, but I hate 'selling' activities to my friends. With Sharedtrip people find my trips and join if they are interested in birdwatching or scouting for Game of Thrones remote shooting locations. .

    Pros: 

    One idea, one trip, some arrangements and fun. Easy

    Cons: 

    Too much to fill when creating a trip

    I helped this team and during that I just felt in love with this tool. With my friends we finally found where we can discuss, re-discuss, re-arrange all our plans about the event and not to uproar lots of chats we have.

    App is simple (I dont use Fb for events because of too much happening there).

    I also like their dream about safe and cheaper travelling.

    Usually, when I work from other city remotely, I'd love to find some people to go to the tours. Reaching them using social groups was awkward, tinder is about sex. Actually, I dont know any other product where you can make groups and nothing bothers you.

    Also I like the approval of people+leave review, that want to join group, it's airbnb model that really makes your trip open, but safe from trolls/

Hi all! I am Genia, the person behind Sharedtrip. I have lived in eight countries and travel is in my blood - I had my first trip when I was 5 days old and I just can’t stop since. I like to travel solo and I’m a good planner, but lately, I started to notice that I have to overpay for accommodations|transportation when I travel on my own and that I miss out on so many opportunities because I am alone and quite often don’t have friends|family by my side. I can’t ride a hot air balloon, I can’t rent a private boat in Thailand, can’t rent a castle in Romania - it’s not economically or eco-friendly and, let’s be honest, just not that much fun. Also, add here all the safety dangers for a solo female travel you’ve heard about - I bet, I experienced the majority. At Sharedtrip, we build a solution that 1) fights Tinder-culture: we put adventure in the center, something you dream about. There is no discrimination based on someone’s looks and you will not get harassed by unwanted spam messages unrelated to your trip. 2) saves your time: you don’t need to chat and organize your friends’ group, considering the possibilities, work schedules, family obligations. With Sharedtrip, you can arrange for new friends to meet on your trip! You post a trip, find people, then discuss additional details. Or you find a trip, join and discuss. You can always leave the group if you feel uncomfortable. 3) inspires ideas for everything you need a group for - like sharing accommodation or transport, some group activities or sharing pizza with a 2x1 deal, guiding tours of your city to the visitors, teaching others to make pelmeni as per your grandma recipe and many more! Perfect for introverts, digital nomads, female solo travelers, any travelers! Check out our special trip to see the flow - Chat for Product Hunters. Also, we started a special promo for this week: post a trip, get at least one positive feedback -> get $10. Thank you for checking out Sharedtrip and giving your feedback! This is our first version and we have so many features to add! Right now we are working on partnering with big events so that more people can find travel companions and visit music, sport, tech events that they’ve always dreamed about!. We have a fantastic team and our big dream - is to see people travel more, safely and do the things they haven’t heard about before. If you are on the same wave, join our community.

Nice idea, but it looks too generic for me and not a lot of trips near where I live. I should say that I'm more interested in nearby trips than international. As a customer, I need to know I can trust this before I jump into it, and I don't feel that way when I landed on your website. I felt more overwhelmed than anything else. I might not be your target audience, but I wanted to leave a feedback anyway. Good luck :)

@vlographer Thank you! Agreed, building trust is very important: from us to the users and between the users. We hope to build trust through content, with time, but is there anything we could do _now_, not to overwhelm you? About being generic - you are right, as well! We are still experimenting: do we want to be more specific, say, location-based or only female travelers, only accommodation sharing, or do we want to give people freedom. At the moment it seems that people prefer freedom, but we've got some ideas, how to develop locations, one by one. And, true, we want to have different group activities nearby too. Say, you woke up on a lazy Sunday, checking Sharedtrip - someone going to cherry picking. Huh, why not? And go pick some cherries. :) We just chose not to have fake profiles and trips, so there are not as many trips yet, but the community is growing. So let's hope, once you will be our target audience. ;) Thank you so much for your thoughts! Our team is hungry for feedback.

@evgenia_trofimova I think if you let me choose a location first it would be less overwhelming to me. The reason is that location is a bigger piece of the decision, and it's more important than choosing what I want to do (hiking, road trips, etc). I'd like to try things that I've not tried by myself with a group of people that 1- I feel I can get along with. 2- They're going to a location I can/want to visit as well. Another thing I'd be interested in is going on trips or doing activities with people who have similar interests to main. Say a group of foodies exploring restaurants in city x. group of entrepreneurs in Palo Alto going for a hike over the weekend. I see some of those on meetup.com but the problem with meetup.com is: - People feel scared to join an established group because they think they will be new to the group and no one will talk to them. - The meetups are usually recurring. So people show up the first time, next time there will be the same people, and in no time the whole meetup dies. Your example of going to cherry picking is interesting, I'd sign up for that :D

@vlographer See! Check our map - maybe existing trips will inspire you for a temporal change of location. :) A month ago I joined a trip to Lake Skating - it was one of the happiest days in my life, despite the fact that I hate cold and didn't know how to skate. :) Tell me your location, we will get you some cherry picking. :) Joking aside, I agree with your idea about the location first. Indeed, we planned to have NEAR ME first, but as we don't have that many trips everywhere yet, we put it below. We know this problem with Meetup and try to solve it. But how important are the similar interests to you? You say you want to go cherry picking, do you care who are the people? Scientists, artists, men, women? We hope to remove the "dating" and discrimination factor, put stress on experience and adventure - and educate users to mention important things about themselves like "I will smoke every 5 minutes" or "I am an introvert, I will be quiet all my trip". Oh, I hope to wake up and have so many great-quality trips, so we are past the chicken and egg problem and can make all the nice filters by location and interests. :) Thank you again, so wonderful to hear the feedback from people who are "not our audience" and have a portfolio of great products developed.

@evgenia_trofimova Yeah, that's totally understandable. To answer your question, whether or not I care about who are the people, the answer is sometimes. - "Who" is important when my intent is to meet new people with similar interests to me to have meaningful conversations, learn new perspectives, maybe make some friends, or just expand my network. For example, I'd be interested to go on a trip with a group of entrepreneurs to Lake Tahoe. - "What" is important when my intent is to have fun. the cherry picking is a good example of that. My intent is to have fun with people I think I'd get along with. Keep in mind this is coming from a "not so adventurous" person :) And my pleasure. people like you and your team are great inspiration for a lot of makers to continue building things.

@vlographer you maybe don't see it yet, but Sharedtrip is PERFECT for you! :) As you said, based on the mood and intention - just describe what you want to share and who you want to share it with. Or join the exact group that fits you. As people wrote in reviews, the good part is your flexibility, where you design what you want. Actually, once you decide to join and get approved, there is a chat where you see other participants and agree about details. In my own experience, as a participant - it is so cool to meet people knowing their names (! and how to spell/pronounce) and feeling friendly already. If you feel like the group is not on your wave, leave it. Thank you for your compliments, each person on our team works hard, cause each needs the tool herself.
