Recently, I joined a partnership with Yonderbound, a third-party hotel booking site, as a team member with their bloggers program. It’s novel in that goes beyond listing users’ opinions by letting them create their own mini-review site.
Let’s face it: Booking sites can get tedious — and really time-consuming — when you’re scrolling through post after post. Opinion after opinion. Yonderbound’s approach can be described as Pinterest meets Trover. Here’s how it works. After setting up an account, users create a Yonderbox in which they could share their travel stories by inserting information on the hotels they’ve stayed at. It’s like putting together a little scrapbook of your trip or a file for saving places to stay for your next one!
It’s pretty easy. On Yonderbox’s home page, you can search for specific hotels or type in a general request like hotels in Japan. Each result comes up with pricing, a map of the hotel, available amenities, and a description about the property. Trip Advisor is incorporated in
Overall, I like Yonderbox’s simplicity with design. It’s very clean and it gives you what you often look for first: location and features. I made my first Yonderbox about Barcelona, featuring two hotels I stayed at in 2009: Regencia Colon in the city’s Gothic Quarter and Hotel America in the Eixample District.
You can also follow other travelers and travel bloggers on Yonderbound and check out their Yonderboxes.
