Vacation planning can be stressful. You have to find the perfect dates, coordinate with friends or family, book plane tickets, research what to do and where to go — the list goes on and on. Not to mention the added stress of pulling up all the information that you need once that exciting travel day arrives. Ready for something easier? Enter: Bublup.
Bublup is a unique cloud storage app that allows you to save any type of link or file in one place. You can visually organize all the information you need to have a stress-free vacation! Travelers use Bublup to plan every trip because:
Imagine all the things you need to organize when planning a trip: hotel and flight confirmation emails; Google spreadsheets your uber-organized friend creates; a Nat Geo article that inspired you to take a trip in the first place; plus the link to that new Away suitcase you’re saving up for. All of this can be saved and organized using Bublup folders! Accessing your saved stuff will be a breeze once your travel day arrives.
Here are four steps to get you started with Bublup:
First, you need to set up your folders. This will help you keep everything organized and easy to find. Your top-level folders should represent the way you think about all your vacation planning needs. There are template folders in the top-level Getting Started folder that offer an example folder hierarchy you might want to use:
Create Top-Level Folders
Top-level folders can contain endless subfolders, so whether you are someone who likes one top-level folder for every trip with detailed subfolders, or someone who prefers to keep all your documents and links at the top level, Bublup allows for flexibility based on your preference.
Let’s say you use our template folders to get started. Your subfolders could look like this:
Now that you’ve created a base layer of folders, you can save nearly any web link, photo, video, or document into any of them. Some examples of things you might save are:
There are multiple ways to add items from both desktop and your mobile device.
To set up email forwarding, go to:
Once complete, simply forward emails to your username @mybublup.com.
Now that you’ve saved plenty of stuff in your folders, you can share your planning with anyone. There are several ways to do so:
By selecting the “invite” icon you can add others to your folder by email address or username. There are also different permission levels available such as view, add, edit, and invite privileges.
Once you’re home after an epic vacation, your friends and family who didn’t join you may be green with envy or, even better, begging you to give them information on that gorgeous hotel you stayed at.
Take your hard work to the next level by effortlessly rolling up any of your folders into a beautiful single link that anyone can view. We like to call this beautiful link a roll, which is an instant web page that can be created in seconds.
Select “Roll an Instant Web Page” on the top-left menu of any folder to transform your research into an easy-to-share URL. You’ll impress your friends with your valuable resources and “wow” them with an impressive web page that seems like it took hours to make (hint: it’s easy).
