A new, innovative online travel service aiming to bridge the gap between young travellers on their journey of a lifetime and the friends and family back home is now available online with the launch of

Incorporating a number of practical features and communication tools, OnlineTravelPlans aims to provide young travellers with a personalised travel portal where they can record and store all their travel information in one safe place, accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world.

Membership costs just £12 a year and provides the traveller with the facility to build a personalised travel itinerary and address book, use of their own online travel log and 2MB of personal storage space. A key feature of OnlineTravelPlans is the unique facility for members to share their itinerary, travel log entries and address book contacts with the friends and family they want to keep in touch with.

Getting started on OnlineTravelPlans is easy and navigation around the site is simple, fun and quick. Once a member has built up their own personal travel information portal, they can then decide who they want to share their travel information with by saving friends and family’s email addresses into a shared access list. Members can add or delete new contacts at any time and once a new contact has been added they will automatically receive an email providing them with a unique username and password in order to view the member’s online plans. As well as being able to visit the site at any time to track the traveller’s progress, the selected friends and family will also be emailed with announcements concerning itinerary updates and new travel log entries.

OnlineTravelPlans founder and managing director, Andrew Diamond says: “Using the worldwide scope of the Internet we aim to provide travellers with unlimited access to their important travel details, while at the same time bringing peace of mind to friends and family by enabling them to keep up-to-date with their loved ones movements. We hope that OnlineTravelPlans will become well-respected within the independent travelling community and be seen as a ‘must have’ travel companion.”

A Quick Guide to

Itinerary - The itinerary has been set up to allow you to input as much or as little information as desired. You can add, edit or delete travel plans from anywhere in the world. Every time you change your itinerary, those friends and family in your access list will get an email alert to advise them that you have amended your plans.

Travel Log - Record your travel highlights in your own words. Your travel log is automatically defaulted to private, however you can choose to share this information with the contacts in your access list if you wish.

Address Book - A place to store all your important friends and family contact details. New contacts can be added as required throughout your journey so there should be no need to lose contact with new friends made on your travels. You can also choose to share access to this feature with the contacts in your access list, so that they can contact each other in your absence.

Personal Storage Space - Public/Private - The standard membership package includes 2MB of storage. This is where members can upload photos and any other travel or personal documentation they wish and select whether to store this in a private or a public file. Members can opt for membership with their desired amount of storage space at registration, or can purchase extra storage at any time during their year’s membership period should they require it.

Access List - Members can include as many contacts in their access list as they like simply by adding email addresses. They can also add new contacts or delete existing contacts from the access list at any time.

Useful Features and Information

Medical Log - The place to record what inoculations you have had/need to have, renewal dates and any other relevant medical information for your own personal access.

Tools- Links to other useful travel related websites as well as world times, insurance companies and an online currency converter, everything you need to help you on your way.

Top Tips - Useful travel advice and contacts - Currently under construction, Lost Contact will be developed as a sister site to OnlineTravelPlans and will offer travellers the opportunity to track down lost friends across the world.
