¿Cuánto más o menos me sale el pasaje? ¿How much is the Price for my journey?

Viajando

como mochilero, uno muchas veces viaja en buses. Lo conocen todos los viajeros y también los Chilenos mismos: recibir miles  de respuestas diferentes cada vez que se pregunta por el precio de un viaje o tener que ir a la terminal de buses o a la oficina más cercana de Turbus, Condor, Pullman,… para preguntar, pero muchas veces estas no están cerca, hay mucha gente, se 10514589_840726605938482_6927951876647354273_ndebe hacer fila,…!

Cuando se quiere planear el siguiente paso y calcular cuánto sale o que conviene más, en Chile se hace un poco difícil porque no hay planes de buses o precios y la información en sus páginas web muchas veces no es clara, pero ahora todo es diferente…

Viendo 10685582_866081483402994_1855210750761723489_nesta necesidad un grupo de  alemanes en Chile  crearon recorrido.cl  una plataforma de comparación de rutas en Chile que permite filtrar y ordenar todos los resultados relevantes ya sea por precio, origen o tiempo de viaje.

La página todavía no está en su versión más perfecta, como ellos mismos dicen, hay algunas fallas todavía, pero están trabajando fuertemente y rápido para que muy pronto inclusive se puedan reservar los tiquetes de  viaje, tener un  App, y consultar más de un ruta al mismo tiempo, viajar en Bus nunca fue más fácil y más barato.

La misión de los fundadores de recorrido.cl:

“Creemos que viajar es esencial para aprender sobre el planeta y su gente. Al explorar otras culturas y paisajes extendemos nuestro horizonte personal y podemos hacer del mundo un mejor lugar. Andar en bus no solo es la manera más barata de transportarse sino también la más frecuente. El bus sirve también para visitar a la familia, descubrir lugares remotos e ir espontáneamente de paseo con tus amigos a la playa o la montaña. Es tiempo de conectar las nuevas tecnologías con el medio de transporte más importante del mundo.”

Los inventores de recorrido.cl son parte de Start-Up Chile (un programa del 10368216_813130932031383_4283586770240967657_ngobierno que apoya nuevos inventores) desde el Mayo de este año, al lado del financiamiento hay mentores y una buena comunidad donde pueden trabajar y recibir feedback para mejorar el proyecto.

Pero si o si la idea esta y es muy buena, les falta avanzar un poco y seguro que todos los viajeros y todos los Chilenos les agradecerán mucho su trabajo y su esfuerzo.


When traveling

as a backpacker, you often travel by buses. It is known to the most of travelers and Chilean: get thousands of different answers every time you ask for the price of a trip or having to go to the bus station or the nearest office Turbus, Condor, Pullman, … to ask, but often these are not close, many people, you should get in line …!10514589_840726605938482_6927951876647354273_n

When you want to plan the next step and calculate how much goes or specific needs in Chile, it becomes a little difficult because there are no plans for buses or prices and no more information, their website is often not clear…

But now everything is different…

Seeing this need,10685582_866081483402994_1855210750761723489_n a group of Germans came to Chile and created the platform recorrido.cl. Comparison routes in Chile that allows you to filter and sort all relevant results by price, origin or travel time.

The page is still not in its most perfect version, as they say, there are still some flaws, but they are working hard and fast so that you soon even can book the travel tickets, have a App, and get more than one route.

Travling by bus has never been easier and cheaper.

The mission of the founders of recorrido.cl:

“We believe that travel is essential to learn about the planet and its people. To explore other cultures and landscapes extend our personal horizons and can make the world a better place. A bus ride is not only the cheapest way to get around but also the most common. The bus also serves to visit family, discover remote locations and go spontaneously walking with friends to the beach or the mountains. It’s time to connect the new technologies with the most important means of transportation in the world. ” 10368216_813130932031383_4283586770240967657_n

The inventors of recorrido.cl are part of Start-Up Chile (a government program that supports new inventors) since May this year. The financing side, there mentors and a good community where they can work and receive feedback serves to improve the project .

But whether, this idea is very good. They need to lack advance a little and sure that all passengers and all Chileans will be grateful for their work and effort.

Our Idea

Based on the increasing interest in internships we almost a year ago started with the idea to make it easier for foreigners to find a good internship in Chile.We knew that already do exist some companies for this, but we wanted to do different. We wanted something that really helps students to find tIMG_8422he job they want and where they can benefit the most possible for their studies. So it’s also guarantied for the business that the students who come are motivated to work, because they know already what they are coming for and what they will do during their stay! And the most important thing was that we wanted you to feel save and coming to Chile without fears and stress and dooing what you want and not ending up washing dishes… (like others we saw…)

All of the internships have been requested by the companies and their availability has been confirmed prior to us offering them to you.

If the company doesn’t meet the expectations of what they offered you, we can provide you with an alternative internship so that your experience here will always be a great one. Means that if you at least end up doing other stuff that the work which was described on the page you can talk with us and we come to talk with the one in charge and if they don’t change your tasks you have the right to change practice.

We go with you to your work the first day and we will visit you once in a while. We have an emergency phone where you can call us 24 hours the 7 days of the week and the 365 days a year.

And with all the 100 Dollars of voluntary workers we pay some administration and the rest of the money we donate at the end of the year to one of the organizations we are working with.

One of the things we offer to give you the best support is our psantiagorogram “your month” which is considered to help you getting in to our culture, country, people, language and more. In this month you will learn about Chile, rights, people, speaking and to handle moving in Santiago.

A great tip for travelers with small budgets

What is the concept of Freetournetwork? A website  which regroups free local tours all around the world. A concept designed by Robert Rosenthall, an experienced traveler.

freetournetwork

Tourist industry has been growing from the last years and mass tourism emerged with it. Then, nowadays flight tickets are cheaper compared to 10 years ago, what offers us the possibility to do what we like the most: Travelling (we are lucky =).There are different types of tourists according to their budgets, but sometimes we all have the same bad feeling to be only a cash cow, to be paying more that it should be, and to stuff companies’ pockets. Beauties of the world should be approachable for everybody. Then, some people have started travelling on a different way and the backpacking phenomena appeared “I’m a backpacker” or “I backpacked in South America”.  That’s why I thought you will be many to use his precious tips.

I hope you will follow the concept: not only to travel for free but to meet local people and to share experiences with them.  Freetournetwork is 172 tours, 139 cities, 56 countries on 6 continents … I think you have enough to be going on with!
