Travel agents may soon be out of a job with the beta launch of travel planning tool Qiito in October.
Pronounced as "Key-Tow", the acronym stands for Quick, Interesting, Interactive, Travel Organizer.
Positioned as an intuitive and conducive environment for travelers to plan trips with their buddies, the free service is leveraging on the concept of crowdsourced content.
"Highly visual and intuitive, you can build up your day-to-day travel itineraries on Qiito.com based on location with simple drag-and-drops" Chuang Pei-Han of Qitto told Penn-Olson. "With crowdsourced content, you will also benefit from first-person experiences and reviews on places of interest in your destinations."
"You can share your itinerary with your friends who can amend and comment all in real-time. All these at zero cost."
According to the report, Qiito has already established a partnership with the Taiwan Tourism Board to help promote travel across the region.
Taiwan was one of the more popular destinations sold at the recent NATAS travel fair.

In today's highly competitive travel market, Qiito will have its work cut out especially as its service is similar to the more established Yahoo's trip planner and Tripit.
But for all the travelers out there, more players means more choice.
