New Feature: Custom Quotes & Templates

YouLi is already the perfect platform to make group trip management easier. But we know that not all trips require communication with multiple people. Sometimes you need to coordinate with a single person to establish the overall plan before you get the rest of the group on board.

If you’re a Travel Agent that creates unique itineraries for groups, but find that quite often people want basically the same thing with a few modifications, then YouLi Quotes is the tool for you. Take advantage of the power of templates without being locked in for the final itinerary.

Mindful Travel – Wherever you go, there you are

There is a lot of travel out there that is all about escape rather than travel with purpose. It is a denial of the life you are living and attempt to “get away”. This kind of travel leaves you dreading the return home. And while a mindful travel experience should leave you sad to say farewell, it should also leave you changed in a way that makes the return journey one that you welcome. Because you can take the things you learned while you were away and apply them in your life, whether you enjoy group travel or solo travel, travel should transform.

WordPress Plugin – Embed your Collection

We’ve made it easy to embed your public trips via our Wordpress Plugin. Every premium client gets their own collection of listed trips available under ‘My Marketplace’ from the Planner dashboard. This means you don’t have to duplicate the content from your trip, simply embed the content you’ve already entered. Travelers can see all your listed trips, select the one that is right for them and click through to the YouLive to Travel Page. From there they can express interest, pay their deposit and ultimately experience the transformational experience you deliver.

Being a Group Leader is Challenging, but so Worth It

Leading groups is challenging, but like so many challenges, it is incredibly rewarding. Group leaders know the way and dream of leading others on transformational travel; to see the joy on their faces when they get there.

Today I’d like to highlight an incredible duo, Brigitte Muir and Juliette Robertson, creators of the transformational Women 4 Women Walking Retreat in Nepal – November 2018. Brigitte was the first Australian woman to summit Everest.
