Trip of your own

A whole bunch of new-age start-ups are now helping travellers curate their own holidays


It all begins with picking a destination followed by selecting dates and booking travel and accommodation. Then comes the fun part: You get to choose activities, sightseeing spots and restaurants from a long list of well-detailed recommendations. The process is very much like adding ingredients to a customised meal order. You can simply drag and drop your travel activities and watch the empty spots on your virtual itinerary fill up. Within a matter of minutes and without any bargaining with a travel agent, you can book yourself a nice vacation.
