A personal pocket trip organizational assistant to help organize group holidays or work trips, Marco, a New-York based company aims to be the go-to planning app. The tech intervention is aimed at making the planning process easier by bringing together the entire group on one platform to share ideas, changes to the itinerary, suggest new routes, and more.
The Marco travel app is easy to download and comes with several built-in features to make traveling with a large group easier. Members added to a trip on the app share ideas on where to stay, places to eat and things to do such as sight-seeing, adventure activities, etc. As all the information is in one place, group members are alerted with real-time updates pushed automatically – and no one misses out on important changes to the itinerary.
The aim of the app is to do away with the need for emails, calls and text messages, especially if you’re abroad and don’t have access to your home-country mobile network. With Marco, users can build an itinerary as a group and watch it develop, and its progress, in real-time.
