Wanderfly aims to bring the recommendation engine experience to online travel transactions.

  • 11 november 2010

The online travel experience is becoming characterised by expedient, functional transactions, with all the flavour of rattling items off a database. This runs counter-intuitively to the ethos of exploration that most of us generally associate with travel and is adding up to an homogeneous experience of booking a holiday.

In contrast, Wanderfly focuses on redesigning the user interface to open the transaction up to discovery and inspiration. By forging links with a number of travel relevant partners, including Yelp and Foursquare, Wanderfly seeks to aggregate the host of data available on online travel into a meaningful experience. It lets you drill down into all possible facets to your holiday experience via a recommendation engine – esque approach.

Somewhat ironically Wanderfly has succeeded in returning an exploratory zest, typical of early world wide web surfing, to online travel via recourse to web 2.0 tools and methods.
