About

WHY TRAVEL?

Life is short. We work so much everyday and stuck in the same routine. Life slowly became dull and meaningless. We forgot why we were working so hard from the first place. We forgot life is also about adventure and trying new things.

DREAM COMES TRUE

We've always thought traveling is a dream. The truth is: anyone can travel and do the things you love. You just need to take the first step, planning.

SEE THE WORLD WITH YOUR OWN EYES   

Many of us learn about a place by watching the television or reading on the internet. Many people who travel a lot will usually tell you that it is different when you actually visit a place. You will understand the lifestyle and culture by experiencing it yourself. Like Chuck Thompson once said, "No place is ever as bad as they tell you it’s going to be."

GIVE YOU PERSPECTIVES  

The world is like a book, and those who do not travel read only one page. When you see different things, your mind will start changing for the better. You will become more open-minded and accepting. Start meeting different people, who speaks a different native language, who have a different cultural background, who you can learn from.

LEARN WHO YOU ARE & GET INSPIRED.

Challenge makes you grow. Traveling is a great way to challenge yourself and get inspired by experiencing new things. A change of place imparts new vigor to the mind.

WHY TIMELESS TRAVEL PLANNER?

It's all about preparation and planning. You don’t have to be rich to travel well. Know what you want and start planning smartly ahead of time. You will notice it actually saves you lots of money and time instead.

UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WANT

You have everything ready to go travel, but you don't know where you should go. Our planner will help you determine which city you might want to start based on what you love to do.

MAKE A WISH LIST

We include a few world maps, locating 80+ main cities around the world. It will be a great starter to decide where you want to go or what you want to see.

FIND WAYS TO SAVE ON TRAVEL EXPENSE  

No one likes to pay extra for things. List out what you need to spend and find ways to save. For example, airfares tend to be cheaper during "low season." If hotel room rates are too expensive, Airbnb could be something to consider. If you plan to attend an event or concert, pre-order tickets at home will usually save you some money and prevent waiting time.

PLAN YOUR TRAVEL ROUTE  

Most of us can only travel for a limited period of time, but it doesn't mean we can't get the best out of the places we visit. With a focus of your wish list, it prioritizes on places that you want to visit first. Then, you know when you will have free time for other places.

Personal Experience: Within an 6-hour window of layover in Istanbul, we stored the luggage at the airport and taxied to visit the Blue Mosque. Along the way, we had some of the best meatballs we've ever had from a local restaurant called Sultanahmet Koftecisi Selim Usta. And then, we still have some time for visiting the famous Medusa head inside Basilica Cistern. With traffic piled up on highway, we took the subway back to airport and board the plane on time.

Doing the right preparation will not only save you lots of time and money, it is the key in traveling smartly and safely. Select destinations and appropriate transportation ahead of time, so you know exactly where to go next one after another.

DON'T FORGET TO FINISH YOUR ERRANDS BEFORE YOU GO

We understand you have things to do all the time. That's why we include a "To Do List" for you to finish up uncompleted work, family errands, or preparation when you are about to be away from home for a while. It could be setting up mail hold at your local postal office, or to ask your neighbor to watch your dog for a few days. We don't want you to drop everything and fly to another country without considering what's important back at home.

BRING THE RIGHT THINGS   

You remember to bring your phone, but forgot to bring a charger. When it is snowing season, you forgot to bring warm clothing. What to bring for a trip is not a big problem. But sometimes forgetting to bring the right thing can possibly ruin your entire trip. With our packing list, you will not forget important documents like passport, visa, tickets, camera, etc. We also include reminders like checking the weather before hand to make sure you bring the right clothing and gears.

CHALLENGE YOURSELF

Be courageous and visit more places! Set a goal. Set a deadline. Write down all the places you want to go within a period of time.

PLANNER LAYOUT

TIMELESS Travel Planner has the following layouts:

Quick Trip Overview - During urgent times, you might want to find important information such as a friend's contact, hotel address, the exact flight number, or departure time. You don't need to bookmark it, and you can find it right away at the first few pages. 

Destination Determination - Many people are clueless where they should start traveling. Draw a quick diagram to determine the first city you should go based on what you love to do.

World Map - Understand where your destination is located at. See what's nearby and maybe you can visit a few extra places from one trip.

Destination Info - Each destination has its own beauty during each season. Not only weather changes, but the food, scenery, and available activities will change too.

Expense - Calculate approximately how much you will spend for your upcoming trip. Know your exchange rate. Do some quick research on how you can save money on airfare, hotel, local transportation, food, entertainment, and many more. 

To-Do List - Make a check list of errands and preparations that you need to complete before you leave home.

Packing List - Make a check list of things you need to bring for your trip

Trip Overview (16 weeks) - prioritize places that you want to visit first, then add more when you have extra time. Make your trip fun and productive.

Daily Itinerary (112 days) - You can do a lot in one day. Plan and make the most out of every single day. Include approximate time of commuting and arriving to better understand your itinerary realistically.

Challenge Tracker - List out all the places you want to go and check them off one by one.

Inspiration Notepad - Blank pages are included in planner for you to write or sketch what's fun and new to you while traveling. Instead of lined or graph blank pages, we have "dot-grid." Not only it has a cleaner appearance, it provides a subtle guide for note-taking and sketching. 

Calendar (year of 2016-2019) - Quick look of the dates in the near future

Contact Profile - What if you lost your planner and someone else picked it up? Give them a chance to give it back to you by leaving your contact information.

WHY DO WE DESIGN TIMELESS TRAVEL PLANNER?

We saw too many people making the same mistake when traveling, and most of the time it's simply not enough planning. 

It's either forgetting to bring a charger for a phone or camera, booked the wrong date for hotel, or just realize it's "reservation only" when already arrive at a museum, restaurant, or event. All these mistakes can be easily avoided by writing them all down and plan ahead. And we know just what you need.

There are actually very few travel planners out there. Most of them don't look professional at all, and their layouts are not realistically planned for different types of travelers. We couldn't find a sleek and practical travel planner, and that's why we decided to make our own. 

WHY DO WE CALL IT "TIMELESS"?

We want a practical travel planner for our users, and the very first thing that needs to be change is the "fixed date" system that forces you to use the planner within the year. It's just not realistic. 

Page: Overview Schedule
Page: Overview Schedule

That's why we designed empty slots for any flexible dates you want. It's timeless, so you don't have to worry about expiration date. Just find an empty page and start planning.

SPECIAL THANKS

Risks and challenges

Thanks to our experienced team, we know the process of manufacture and commercial shipping system very well. As planners ourselves, we already found a few manufacture within the US, which will lower the risk of low quality products and long shipping time.
