SEOUL, June 22 (Korea Bizwire) – When you travel overseas, you often feel as if you are an Alice in wonderland. Sometimes that could be a nice experience but some other times it may be confusing and terrifying. What if you could get help from a local friend who knows her way around the city? This is the basic idea that started a business called “Trip Alice.”
For example, a Korean national living in Korea can become a friend of a foreign traveler and get little income from the relationship. Given there are many foreigners who want to visit the country for its Korean Wave celebrities and medical services, the opportunity seems boundless.
This is a whole new business proposition because more and more foreign travelers want to have special experience in a trip through intimate interactions with local people beyond simple package tours.
With the service calendar reservation system, Trip Alice allows the user to talk to the host before the visit so that they can resolve any issue before meeting with each other. Payments are made through global payment services such as PayPal.
By far the biggest strength of Trip Alice, however, is its multi-language translation system. As soon as the user registers for the service, she can take advantage of the translation service offered in seven different languages, including English, Chinese, and Japanese.
Currently Trip Alice is taking applications for becoming hosts. A company official said early applicants will get a variety of privileges such as free photo shoots, free translation services, and discounts on transaction fees. For further information, visit the website at www.TripAlice.com.
