Spring break is just around the corner, which means flight prices are going up, and there are only so many seats in your best friend’s Prius to take you on the road trip you’ve been talking about since freshman year! Fortunately, Tripda is here to get you out of this little pickle – in a fun, affordable, safe and environmentally-friendly way.
Tripda is a ride-sharing website and app that puts choices in your hands. Instead of randomly matching drivers and passengers, there are a number of features that allow both sides to learn about the other and confirm their decision to travel together. Plus, it’s super easy – and saves you tons on gas and toll money!
All you have to do is log in, connecting through your Facebook account. This allows you and any potential travel buddies to access basic information like profile picture, age and number of friends. You can view unbiased community reviews on potential travelers written by people they’ve traveled with in the past (similar to Airbnb reviews). From there you can either offer or find a ride, select your preferred route and connect with your travel companion through messaging on the site and app – you can chitchat, get to know one another and make sure your companion is a good fit you feel comfortable with. Now comes the fun part: Sit back, enjoy the ride and rate it when you’re done!
Tripda also has an awesome Ladies Only option, where you can ensure that you’ll be riding solely with women for an added element of comfort and fun. You never know – you could even meet a potential friend, boss, or business partner on the open road!
This ride-sharing community goes the extra mile to ensure your safety. With affiliation badges on members’ profiles, you can choose people who belong to other organizations and communities you might also be allied with. So that you don’t have to worry about your personal data being shared, Tripda uses advanced SSL encryption technology to secure your transactions and information. And the double opt-in process makes sure both drivers and passengers want to travel with one another.
So if you’re not up for the wild spring break trip your friends have planned (or just need a ride to get there) or you want to challenge yourself with some solo travel, think about the places you can go and the people you’ll meet on Tripda – download it now! Your road trip awaits!
