Plan Better Trips
When planning a trip, it is always helpful to read reviews about accommodations, restaurants, and sites. But until now, those reviews have been from people you don’t know. Footprint allows you to easily identify which of your friends have been to a destination and see their reviews.
You can also see if you have friends that share your interest in going to a particular destination or have an upcoming trip to somewhere you have been or want to go. Or perhaps you want to know if a friend has visited a destination and is knowledgeable about business customs or great places to see - with Footprint you will know who you should reach out to in your network for valuable travel info.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Footprint?
Footprint is a free tool that enables you to document and share the travels and adventures in your life. Once you have created and published your own Footprint, you can connect with other people you know and see their Footprints. You can also use Footprint when you are planning a trip to see which people in your network have been to the city or town you are visiting, as well as their reviews on hotels, restaurants, sights, etc.
How much does it cost?
Footprint is free. Eventually we will be placing advertisements on Footprint to generate revenue to cover our costs.
Is there a mobile app?
Not yet. We have launched the first version of Footprint as a website that works from both desktop and mobile devices.
Will my Footprint be visible to everybody?
That is up to you. Footprint provides privacy settings so you can determine if your Footprint is visible to everyone or just people you are connected with. You can also write journal entries that can be set as private, so only you can view them.
How do I create a Footprint?
Simply start on the map above by clicking on one country/state where you would like to visit. You will then select 3 destinations you have visited by either clicking on the countries/states you have visited on the map or typing the name of a city or country into the search bar to the right of the map. Finally, you can type the name of your current home town into the search bar. At that point, you can save your Footprint. After saving your Footprint, you can add to it at any time – adding the city you were born, places you have lived, places you have visited, upcoming trips, and your bucket list destinations. We also provide the ability to add ratings/comments (for cities, hotels, restaurants, sites, etc.), upload photos, and write journal entries.
How does Footprint help me connect deeper with friends and colleagues?
When you connect with others on Footprint, you are able to see in a very user-friendly way where they have traveled and what places were their favorites. You can also overlay your Footprints on a map to easily see what places you have both been.
Can I invite my friends to join Footprint?
Yes, there is a tool within Footprint that allows you to invite your friends to join and connect with you.
What if I have suggestions for making Footprint better?
This is the first version of Footprint, and we expect to make several improvements over time. We welcome your suggestions. Please email us at [email protected].
