Trip planner

visitkavala.gr offers a trip planner tool to the travelers for making their own program when they visit the area.

It has been developed with FullCalendar JavaScript library in combination with cookies technology.

Let’s see how it works.. the travelers browse in different sections at visitkavala.gr and when they locate the places and activities that interest them, in each of them they will see on the right a button “Add to Trip Planner” or, respectively, “Remove from Trip Planner” after they have selected it. This choice will update the trip planner.

When they will finish browsing and making their selections, clicks on “Trip Planner” from the main menu, they will see their selections on the left. Then they select the dates which they want to visit the points of interests from the calendar and drag them to the dates that have chosen.

Finally, the travelers can save or print their program.
