Web: Holidaying in Europe is popular, but deciding where to go specifically during your trip can be overwhelming. If you have a loose idea, RoutePerfect can help you plan the rest of your itinerary and expose you to spots you may never have stopped otherwise. The app has a ton of specific options you can use to build the framework for your trip. Here is what you can choose from:
- Round-trip or one-way: You can either have the same start/end city or pick different cities to start and end in.
- The duration of your trip: Put in how many days you want your trip to be, including a start date if you have one. Depending on what interests you add in, RoutePerfect will adjust your number of nights in each spot to maximise the things you'd like to do.
- Ground transportation: Put in if you're travelling by car or public transportation.
- Trip type: Is this a family holiday? Romantic getaway? Solo trip? This information helps RoutePerfect narrow down stops that will appeal to everyone on the trip.
- Your personal interests: Use sliders to indicate how interested you are in certain things like historic places, good food or small towns. RoutePerfect will use these factors to figure out what stops are best suited to what you enjoy and how active you are.
Once you put everything in, RoutePerfect generates a route, how long it takes to get between each stop, how many nights you have in each spot and more details about each city (history from Wikipedia, reviews from TripAdvisor, suggested sights). You can also manually add in certain places if you have a must-see spot, or a place you definitely want to visit. For example, I put in a start destination of Oslo, Norway and an end destination of Naples, Italy. Once RoutePerfect had generated an itinerary for me, I went in and added London as a stop and removed one of the stops in Sweden (after RoutePerfect warned me that my addition would make the trip go over by two days). You can also manually adjust how many nights you spend at each stop.
