Users find insights to the authenticity of a particular destination
A new travel-based social website is bringing people together at different destinations around the world. Register your journey with Gtrot.com, and your Facebook friends and contacts who have lived in or visited that place can provide insider secrets that give a real feel for the area. Users may find themselves meeting an old friend in an atmospheric pub in the East End of London, for example, or a trip to Australia could discover secrets about how to find the best surf breaks, thanks to a distant cousin who went there recently.
Gtrot is forging travel-related deals for its users too, where relevant hotel discounts, for example, are sent to users five days before departure.
