Tech startups. When you hear this, most probably you think about games, instant messaging or social networks; but what about vacations? Yes, some startups aim to help travelers, like you, to book hotels, find amazing touristic places or share your vacation experiences with other users.
Who says tech entrepeneurs don’t think about relaxing, visit exotic places or escape to a hotel in the middle of Brazil, Africa or London? Here’s a proof that they like to go on vacations and enjoy a good time, hope you find a useful one to plan or enjoy your holiday:
Not only booking in this site is easy, cause they give you many options betweens hostels and hotels, also, you’ll be able to find people who will stay in those hostels and hotels at the same time you are planning to. Inbed.me becomes a social network for travelers and gives you the opportunity to meet your host previously to your trip.

Imagine a place you want to visit. How many days do you want to stay in that place?, now that you have an idea, visit LetMeGo, type the info in the “calculator” and let hotels, bed&breakfasts places and vacation rentals compete for your stay.
