Good to see some fresh travel technology coming out of Europe. Announcement today that the tour planning technology behind YourTour.com has been upgraded – up to six times faster – with the site claiming “Customised Trips In 15 Seconds!” A quick test drive establishes that the site is fast, simple and works well. It pulls activities from Lonely Planet and rooms from Boooking.com. There’s a white-label version available to tourism offices, tour operators and hotel chains. Yourtour.com is the flagship product of DeciZium, a Belgian spin-off company of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Mons. Meanwhile, TripAdvisor has bought EveryTrail, a GPS enabled publishing platform to create outdoor tours and city guides for mobile devices.
