A group leader is the person everyone counts on to have all the details sorted so everyone has the right kind of memorable trip. Everyone knows a group leader in their work or personal lives. They are the ones who immediately pull out the spreadsheets when it’s time to plan a group trip. They know the best ways to find the right operators, accommodations and experiences.
Depending on the context Group Leaders are also called:
- Trip Planner
- Travel Director
- Travel Coordinator
- Fundraising manager
- Not-for-Profit CEO
- Hiking Organizer
- Travel Agent
- Team Manager
- Maid of Honor
- …and more
We’ve discovered that because travel has become so much more accessible, passionate Group Leaders are able to create trips for the groups that matter to them, to travel for the causes and destinations that give them purpose. Many of these Group Leaders make a business out of this passion, others lead travel to raise money for others, and others use travel to educate the next generation of leaders.
We built YouLi to make it so that Group Leaders can share all the incredible detail oriented work they do behind the scenes with beautiful and dynamic (and mobile friendly) Travel Pages instead of static sheets, docs or pdfs.
These Travel Pages are like a
- landing page, because they allow you to register interest in a trip
- website, because they inspire travelers to join the adventure
- booking form, because they allow each traveler to pay their personalized trip cost
- marketing automation tool, because they remind people to pay if they’ve registered interest
- document store, because they collect and collate the necessary docs like passports and waivers
- project management tool, because you can assign tasks to travelers so everyone gets their vaccinations and visas on time
Many Group Leaders work with Travel Agents as well (so they can co-plan in YouLi), some work within organizations and run trips on the side, others do it as their main gig. We help them all, whether it is their first trip to see if they can monetize their passion or their 10th trip this year.
Customer Experience Portal
Ultimately, a trip hosted on YouLi provides a mobile optimized and secure customer experience portal for Group Leaders to impress their Travelers, whether they are:

Each Travel Page can be customized to match the Group Leader and their Travelers – no matter what they call themselves! Watch the video for a quick tour of all the elements of a Travel Page that’s been customized for a group going to Jordan.
