What does Customized Itinerary look like?
Every traveler goes through their transformational journey, but what does it take to organize extraordinary experience for a group trip, or a group of groups?

One of our most inspiring #TransformationLeaders, Dr Fiona Hill describes her philosophy in 3 lessons:

  • Visualize exactly what you want to do and be clear that you are delivering YOUR vision.
  • Choose who your customer is. You only want the right people for what YOU want to do.
  • Visualize every single day, every step of the day. Think about what could go wrong as much as what will give joy.  Because when your planning is rigorous, the doing is easy. Then when you arrive, let it go! Trust the people you chose.

In many ways YouLive To Travel is the digital expression of that concept:

Predict the challenges travelers will face preparing for the trip and equip the group and the leader with the best tool kit to find the solution.

Hard work on the back end is to build the path for travelers to walk on. It is you, the #GroupLeader and Trip Architect, who designs the path – adjusts the language, sets up the tasks sequence, personalizes registration page, finalizes quotes and optional add-ons, it’s then the #TravelTechnology that triggers all the necessary communications to welcome the traveler on their own personal Hero’s journey.

Another of our #YouLiAmbassadors, Ben Southall calls his group trips Extreme Networking Events, they are:

“Expeditions individually crafted to suit the unique goals, preferences, and requirements of each client, ranging from luxury international getaways to gritty micro-adventures.”

Ben, Southall, Best Life Adventures

Ben is an Adventureprenuer, His mission is to help people challenge themselves physically, mentally, and culturally to build #TheAdventurousMindset to
more creative solutions and ultimately develop a better connected, smarter thinking, calmer world. For Ben every trip is unique: the group dynamic, communication language, endurance of the participants, even the landscape. Extreme conditions require multiple backup plans, but the goal is always one – full immersion. Which means total disconnection during the trip – no cell phone, no internet.

That’s why Ben needs YouLi software before the trip, to make sure all the planning is done right before the group goes offline on their Extreme Dream Challenges. All documents, maps, visas, polls, forms, passports – all safely saved, processed and downloaded in one folder. Travelers get automated reminders of the tasks on the dates Ben pre-defines for each group member. Once the change is made, an update is instantly available to everyone in the group, yet every participant views only the information relevant to their journey. The YouLi platform allows trip leaders like Ben adjust and save trip settings for future use.

The challenge is to use modern tools to nurture clients as the number of itineraries multiplies. As a travel business grows, leaders can use a management platform like YouLi to maintain personal relationships with travelers without losing efficiency in operations. This is especially helpful as you scale and need to pass on your experience to your new staff without losing quality. We call that SCALING CUSTOMIZATION.
