AI-powered camping travel planner AdventureGenie unveiled

US: AdventureGenie – described as “the world’s first RV and camping travel planning tool powered by artificial intelligence [AI]” – has been unveiled. 

Founded by a former Microsoft senior technology executive, Scott Lengel, and veteran CEO / investor, David Greenberg,  AdventureGenie  uses next-generation technology to understand what RV travellers want when planning exciting adventures. In addition to creating itineraries, AdventureGenie’s  smart technology can intelligently generate custom journeys based on the most sought-after themed trips, with detailed trip guides and recommended campgrounds and activities.

AdventureGenie includes an extensive database of over 25,000 public and private campgrounds and proprietary AI-based algorithms to customise itineraries for each user. The company offers features such as GenieSummaries [a way to summarise and describe each campground], GenieScores [a rating system] and GenieMatch [which shows how close AdventureGenie thinks each campground is a good fit for each individual user].

Travellers will learn what campgrounds are a great match for their personal preferences and will be able to reserve them.   Integrated into AdventureGenie’s route planning and campground selection tool, GenieWishes asks users what they would like to see and do on their trips – and in response, its AI engine builds an itinerary stop by stop that matches those preferences.

AdventureGenie CEO Scott Lengel said: “We answer the three key questions on campers’ and RVers’ minds: What to do? How to get there? Where to stay? Our  GenieTrips  provide detailed itineraries for dozens of popular destinations.

“Our 25,000+ database of campgrounds, with the built-in magic of  GenieSummaries, GenieScores  and GenieMatch, identifies the perfect campgrounds for each traveller.  And our adaptable route planning tool creates customised routes, recommends AI-generated GenieStops along the way, and is fully integrated with our campground database and our  GenieTrips,” he added.

The tool is designed to address complications and frustrations in the RV / camping travel planning processes, given it often requires having an array of websites and apps open at once, ranging from individual campground websites to mapping websites and area attraction searches.

David Greenberg, chairman of AdventureGenie, said: “AdventureGenie  is the answer to the most vexing question my wife and I encountered while planning RV vacations:  Can’t  there be a one-stop-shop for RVers and campers to plan the trip of their dreams? The answer is an emphatic, YES.”
