“Plansify” offers site users (“members”) an opportunity to connect with and learn from other travelers/those with specific knowledge about certain travel activities and/or destinations (“travel advisors”). Our site also offers travel advisors a method of providing direct, personal and genuine travel advice, in order to assist travelers, or potential travelers, to achieve their travel goals, while earning fair compensation for their time and the advice they provide.
Users of the site may search the database of travel advisors and then request either a “Question session” (allows the member to submit up to 3 questions via form) or “Call session” (gives a member the chance to speak with a travel advisor via Skype for up to 1 hour) with any travel advisor they please, based upon their own needs and the travel advisor’s area(s) of expertise. Members will be charged for each session based upon the travel advisor’s stated session rates as indicated in their profile. Each advisor will have two different session rates: (a) “Question session” rate and (b) “Call session” rate.
Payment is made by the member for a session once the travel advisor either submits their answers for a “Question session” or confirms a date and time for a “Call session”. Once the payment for a session has been processed, the travel advisor shall then earn 80% of the total amount paid, with 20% of the total amount being collected by us in order to continue operating this site. While these figures may change at any time, and only after all parties involved have been notified of such changes, it shall always be our intention to create a situation, and financial structure, that maximizes the benefit for members, travel advisors and the owners of “Plansify”.Site Users (“Members”)
