What is Relovate's Address to Address Planning?
Exactly what it suggests. You may input specific departure and destination addresses. This makes it easy to locate everything you might need for your plan. Airports, restaurants, activities, rental cars, and so on. We save every address so you can be extra precise with your planning. For example, you need to get from your office at 200 Valley Road, Mount Arlington, NJ to a meeting at the Sears’ Tower in Chicago, which is 233 South Whacker Drive, Chicago, Il. By using those addresses, Relovate makes it easy to find everything you might need near your meeting.

What is Relovate's Trip Itinerary?
A complete record of all bookings, and all considered restaurants and planned events.

Where do I find My Trip Itinerary?
Open a trip from the My Trips page, to access the Trip Planner. On the top navigation, select Itinerary.
Where can I find information about destinations?
Relovate includes information on numerous locations, in Explorer, which we create from content provided by WikiVoyage. It is accessible from the Home Page, or anywhere you see the icon in the Trip Planner. The information provided covers a wide variety of topics, everything from weather to suggestions for surrounding areas. You can use it to research, and also to add new locations related to your first search. For example, if you are exploring a trip to NYC, you will quickly learn it is a big place. We think its helpful to make big places smaller by showing you all the different neighborhoods, and all the different things there are to do in those neighborhoods. Use Explorer to learn about these, add the ones you like and they will display in your Trip Planner. Now, you can plan specifically and precisely in that neighborhood.
