Mr. Arlo Adds Travel Discovery to Online Travel Booking

Mr Arlo

Planning and booking vacations in the Internet age is vastly different. In-person travel agents are on the way out but online travel agency sites, like Orbitz or Travelocity, are less personal and primarily focused on securing the sale. Mr. Arlo is a new-age online travel discovery and booking site that focuses on customer experience.

Chuck Job, CPO and cofounder of Mr. Arlo, was inspired to create an online travel planning and booking site after his wife (like most of us) had a frustrating and fruitless experience planning a weekend trip to Chicago. Job believed there was a solution that combined the discovery aspect of travel planning with the logistics of travel booking, all in one site. After a successful launch, earlier than the Mr. Arlo team planned, Job knew that Mr. Arlo connected with consumers.

Through a scrollable and visually crisp layout, users can browse hotel rooms and read pertinent and informative snippets on events, restaurants, hotels, and attractions, entitled “Good Reads,” specific for their desired location – all on one screen. Mr. Arlo offers both grid view and map view to display results, allowing users to see hotel room views and hotel locations. The result is a one-stop travel experience.

Mr. Arlo is a sprinkling of Pinterest with a dash of Orbitz and a side of personal travel agent. The attention grabbing aesthetics are only matched by the quality of available information on your next trip, and, of course, Mr. Arlo’s lowest-price guarantee.

Mr. Arlo won the hottest showcasing startup (reader’s choice) at our Tech Cocktail SXSW mixer.

  1. Vietnam Visa Application Online

    Single and Multiple-Entry: For both the one-month and three-month
    Vietnam tourist visas American’s can choose either single or multiple-entry. This seems to be the cheapest and easiest way to get a visa to Vietnam. Visa on arrival has tremendously managed to be rather a new way since it is ordered online when you are to take a flight.
