Making travel better

The goal of the Global Travel Hackathon is to create useful and interesting travel-related applications to make travel better.

Idea examples

example1

Direction Guru

A web widget for concerts, events, and hotels to show their customers how to get there. Provides personalised directions to each user based on their social network profile.

example2

Friend Stalker

Pretend you’re planning a holiday to either Rome or Istanbul. What if an app could tell you which of your friends have been to these places? You could check out their albums and chat to them about their experiences before making your decision.

example3

Cheapest Getaway from the Airport

You’re at the airport and you want to get yourself to the city. What about a simple app for comparing the available means of transport?

example4

This is an opportunity to develop your own ideas!
