The daunting prospect of everyone sitting down to plan a trip can be a non-starter, especially when you consider how hard it is to table-top someone who isn't standing up. Because mapping out a vacation with friends can be equally hard, check out TripHuddle.
Just launched, TripHuddle streamlines getaway logistics by providing a centralized place for traveling partners to create and share an itinerary, and's the brainchild of a group of buddies whose attempts at planning quickly devolved into a "confusing mess of emails, texts and phone calls", but... you should totally use their product, they've got their act together now! After inputting basic trip blueprints (like dates, times, and descriptions of planned stops and events), organization gets next-level with slots to display how each member of the squad will get from point A to point B, replete with spaces for deets like flight numbers, arrival times, and hotel names, which, according to those Vegas tourism commercials, can be whatever you and your flirty friends want. Through the magic of Facebook, invited friends can update their own details, as well as post to a Wiki-like log of plans via an open-to-all bulletin board; the whole thing can also be kept completely private should you just want to use it as a resource for a trip you're taking alone, though how many details can you possibly have to record about murdering captured backpackers in the war-torn Eastern Bloc, weirdo?
And to make things even simpler, Huddle's partnered with Expedia to provide linked-up, one-click booking for flights, cars, and hotel rooms, meaning whether or not you can successfully sneak up behind your friends, everyone will still have a place to crash.
