The world of travel has changed significantly in the past few years, with technology playing a significant role in how we travel, explore, work, and live on the road. A new innovation to hit the RV scene is AdventureGenie, an artificial intelligence trip-planning tool specifically designed for RVers. This AI technology simplifies RV trip planning by catering to the unique requirements of RV travelers while offering a personalized experience.
How AdventureGenie works
Founded by a former Microsoft senior technology executive, Scott Lengel, and veteran tech investor, David Greenberg, AdventureGenie uses next-generation technology to intuit what RV travelers want when planning adventures. The online tool harnesses the power of AI to provide users with comprehensive, timely information on RV parks, campgrounds, and amenities. The tool considers factors such as location, the traveler’s budget, preferred activities, and travel duration to create a customized itinerary that suits the preferences of each RVer.
Like all AI bots, AdventureGenie can adapt and learn from user inputs. As users provide feedback on their trips, the AI system becomes increasingly adept at understanding the traveler’s preferences, enabling it to deliver more accurate and tailored suggestions.
AdventureGenie’s commitment to users
A key advantage of AdventureGenie is its commitment to providing users with a seamless and enjoyable planning experience. By joining a user-friendly interface and an intuitive design, the platform is designed to ensure that even the most technologically challenged traveler can navigate and interact with the tool. This focus on accessibility extends to the AdventureGenie mobile app, which is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, allowing RVers to have all the information they need while on the road.
“We answer the three key questions on campers’ and RVers’ minds: What to do? How to get there? Where to stay,” said Scott Lengel, CEO of AdventureGenie.
“Our GenieTrips provide detailed itineraries for dozens of popular destinations. Our 25,000+ database of campgrounds, with the built-in magic of GenieSummaries, GenieScores, and GenieMatch, identifies the perfect campgrounds for each traveler. And our adaptable route planning tool creates customized routes, recommends AI-generated GenieStops along the way, and is fully integrated with our campground database and our GenieTrips.”
In addition to creating point-to-point travel itineraries, Genie offers customized trips, smart routing, campsite reviews, and reservations. Tell Genie where you want to go and its smart tech will do the rest.
Thank you, Randall! It is good to know this exists. I can see the 30-somethings and younger really going for this. It will get them all the experiences that I understand they crave. I ain’t them. At $99, or $49/yearly, I don’t see getting much use from this. I’ll renew my Luddite card instead (at an annual cost of $0) and slog along as I always have.
I just spent an hour or so writing up a 1.2 page bulleted list of main locations and constraints/desires for an upcoming 2+ month trip. I am skeptical if the AI planner could parse and plan based on it. If it can, I would join your service. I think its too long to post here. Is there somewhere I can send a pdf file for comment?
Hi, George. You’re correct that you wouldn’t be able to post something that long here. You’ll have to contact AdventureGenie for that. Have a great day, and a great trip! 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
I saw David Greenberg replied to some so was hoping he would chime in.
He probably will. I just haven’t seen him commenting yet today. Take care. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
Hey George. Thanks for your comments. Please send your bulleted list to email@example.com and we will show you what Genie can do! David Greenberg, Chair, AdventureGenie
Hey George! My name is Jake, I’m a developer with AdventureGenie. We do not currently offer large scale text-to-trip parsing. We do however believe that we can take that bulleted list and help you plan a trip based off of it with our current trip planner easier than you would think.
If you don’t mind, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the pdf file and I’d love to continue this conversation further.
George, I replied yesterday; see below. I’d encourage you to send your bulleted list to email@example.com and we will show what AdventureGenie can do! David
This is a great idea! I’m looking forward to trying it.
A Big NO To Anything “Artificial Intelligence”! It Is Designed (Programmed) To Control The Masses. It Is Being “Marketed” In Very Interesting And Devious Ways… “Shiny Object”…. Please Dont Be Fooled…
Regardless the comments, thanks for taking the time to engage directly.
Agree with the comments ALSO the Costs for this AdventureGenie is STEEP at least for me! $99.00 membership for 1 year.
Without knowing what to expect & relying on the new technology AI, We’ll skip for now.
SherKen, Thanks for your comments. Our introductory price for your first year would be $49.99, not $99. Check out the 7 day free trial and decide for yourself. David Greenberg, Chairman, Adventure Genie
I just tried to sign up following the link in this article and the price after the 7-day trial was $99. I’m just not willing to make that commitment after a short trial. $49 and I’d give it a try. So what gives?
two chances of us using AI for anything…none and slim.
Think this one will have to percolate awhile before I bite.
I heard the hype about GPS…that has gotten us stuck on a mountain road in a 40-ft diesel pusher, taken us to cornfields instead of campgrounds, and still can’t pronounce words that are easily pronouncable using elementary school phonics!
Then we bought the trip planning software: first Good Sams who left us hanging when they decided non-support was the way to go. Then another that provided no more information than we could Google for ourselves.
So excuse me if I don’t jump up and down about this new bot. When they find something that will check campground availabitliy for me, hold the reservation for 24 hours, and save me those hours of fruitless searching, then maybe I will think aboout it.
Yeah, I aggree. This may be something for the next gen of RVers. IMHO, my own generation is little more reluctant to be told where to go and how to get there. The next gen are so busy being led around by there tech overlords, it is the obvious next step.
The data collected by the program can be shared with the overlords and instead of helping you, it could be used to track you and if you. Use more than your “fair share” of diesel in a month, maybe your credit card gets shut off. This may not be the motive behind the development but once we are cashless, it will all be tracked, you will be tracked. For those of you that think this is far fetched, it is the reality in China already. 2020 and 21, Australia tracked and locked up law abbiding citizens. Social credit scores. If you think it’s not possible here, neither was the FBI shutting down free speech on Twitter.
Well Stated, Cancelproof!!
AdventureGenie doesn’t allow the user to choose what kind of cookies are attached to his browser in each visit to the site. It looks to me like a site for harvesting users’ personal information and online behavior for use by AdventureGenie and other companies.
Michael, Thanks for your comments. We will not sell any user information to anyone. David Greenberg, Chairman, Adventure Genie.
Michael, ( AI ) is All About “Control” And “Harvesting” of Ones Personal Data… Eventually taking away Ones Freedoms Of Thought. A Population Is Easier To Control When It Is “Influenced” By Artificial Intelligence….
Greetings from AdventureGenie!! The article has two links. The one near the top takes you to our website. The one at the end takes you to our FAQs, which are on a separate site. PLEASE USE THE FIRST ONE, OR GO TO http://WWW.ADVENTUREGENIE.COM, IF YOU WANT TO TRY US OUT. For free, and with no sign up at all, you can search our campground database and read our 25 GenieTrips, full itineraries of very popular RV and camping trips . If you want to try out our Trip Planner and the full site, including the button that allows you ‘Take a Genie Trip’, take advantage of our 7 Day Free Trial, by creating an account and giving us a credit card — and you can cancel anytime within a week. We hope you will try AdventureGenie for yourself. We’d love to hear from you. David Greenberg, Chairman, AdventureGenie.
Sorry, David. The second link has been removed. (Was put in by someone other than Randall.) Have a great day. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
My only question is, “Who needs someone to tell them where to go and what to do”?
Is there a similar program for the average Joe who gets his week’s vacation and sits down with his wife and says, “Let’s fire up LifeGenie and see where we’re going this year and what are we going to see and do”? C’mon man, try to keep control of your life and make your own decisions.
Tommy, Thanks for your comments. We are RV’ers ourselves and looked and looked for help in planning our trips — to answer the questions what to do, where to stay and how to get there. We’ve been Beta testing AdventureGenie for months and hundreds of users have found it valuable. Try it out and see what you think! David Greenberg, Chairman, Adventure Genie.
Well Said, Tommy !!
Just might want to mention that it’s $99/year. (Though they have a $49 “deal” for a while.) No thanks.
Joe, Thanks for your comments. We’ve been testing AdventureGenie for months and the response of our Beta users has been very positive, including to our price/value proposition. There are competitors out there and millions of people are paying for this kind of service. We think we’ve improved on the state of the art. We’d urge you to try out. Of course, no company or product is for everyone — and if it’s not for you we respect that. David Greenberg, Chairman, AdventureGenie
I’m not a computer whiz kid at 80 years young, but I do know computers only know what someone entered into it. Based on that it seems that the programmer would have to know everything about me in order to have the program give me the perfect plan for my trip. I’m not giving my life over to a programmer for the benefit of having my trip detailed for me. DW doesn’t even know some things about me. Unless you’re a complete idiot and don’t know what a map or road atlas is, I think I can do a better job planning and navigating my trip.
Bob, Thanks for your comments. Hundreds of RV’ers and campers have been testing AdventureGenie in our Beta program, and the response has been incredibly positive. You are correct that AdventureGenie would have to get to know in order to take full advantage of our smart technology — and that’s not for everyone. We respect that. David Greenberg, Chairman, Adventure Genie
Well Said, Bob P !!
I tried the beta version. The AI could never figure out how we like to travel no matter how many changes /corrections I made. It seems to prefer urban destinations even with the data bases it has for campgrounds and these were limited (I’m sure they will grow as the product ages). Anyway, I discovered, while playing with the program, that a lot of fun of taking our trips was in doing the planning to suit us; to searching and finding things that interest us; new adventures we might enjoy. The program simply does not supply that satisfaction.
Sharon, Thank you for your comments. We think AdventureGenie can help everyone who does planning — for the most capable ‘do it yourselfers’ like you, to rookies in RV and camping planning. The smart technology built into AdventureGenie will get to know users better over time — and our 25,000 strong campground database will also grow and improve. We hope you give us a try, but we know no product is for everyone. We respect that. David Greenberg, Chairman, AdventureGenie.
FYI, the AdventureGenie link above takes you to their FAQ help page. There is no link to the sign up page from there. AdventureGenie.com gets you to the sign-up page. You can only use the AdventureGenie after you create an account and provide a credit card for their 7-day free trial.
I found the same thing. Busted!
Jim, Thanks for you comment. You can find us at http://www.adventuregenie.com. Give us a try. David Greenberg, Chairman, AdventureGenie.
Bob, Thank you for your comments and for pointing out that the best way to find us is through the link to http://www.adventuregenie.com. For free, without any signup, you can search our 25,000 campgrounds and read our 25 great GenieTrips (preplanned itineraries to popular destinations like national parks and themed trips like NASCAR, Civil War battlefields and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail). If you want to use the full product, take advantage of our free trial, which you can cancel at any time within 7 days. We hope you will give us a try. David Greenberg, Chairman, Adventure Genie
7 day free trial? It takes 5 days to get half way across the country if your pushing it, then what?
Legit David, a hypothetical 28 day free trial may be attractive enough for the demo I run with to try it out but 7 days…..? Just not part of the running and gunning crew in my travels anymore and my travels include most of North America. If your product is as good as you say it is, then you’ll make it up in subscription volume by offering a 28 day trial. My demo takes 28 days to change lawn chair locations and I’ve got 15 years of RVing left in my plans.
If your target is the young family that gets 2 or 3 weeks of vacation per year, then 7 days free trial may be good but if its the 6 months plus a year RVer, not so much.
