Travel startup Traxo has recently released a new Foursquare-like feature they are calling Travel Trophies. Users can earn trophies for each State, Country or Continent they visit during their travels.
The trophies section of the site also allows you to brag about your loyalty status, as well as other details.
Here are my trophies as an example:
Here is their press release giving more details:
Introducing Traxo Travel Trophies™, Industry First
With Traxo Travel Trophies, you’ll now automatically earn trophies for all the places that you visit. You can track and share travel accomplishments, watch your travel collection grow, and see how it compares to that of your friends.
1. Regional Trophies: Collect trophies for all the continents, countries and US states you have been to or plan to visit. Once you return from a trip, Traxo will automatically award you the trophy for the new destinations you visited – there is no need for an extra step, i.e. placing a pin on a map.
2. Travel Summary: Want to see how many countries your friends have visited? Wondering who has been to all seven continents or 50 states? You can find answers to these questions and more by taking a look at your friends’ profile page on Traxo .
3. Loyalty Status: Perhaps ever since you watched “Up in the Air”, you’ve been looking for a not-so-subtle way to brag about your travel loyalty program status. Now you can. Traxo Travel Trophies also allows you to see which elite travel programs your friends belong to and proudly display your own Double Executive Titanium status.
4. Share Trophies: And for you social networkers, we’ve also included an optional feature that allows you to brag about, and share your new trophies with your friends on both Facebook and Twitter. Simply click on the trophy you want to post and share.
We hope you’re as excited as we are about Traxo Travel Trophies. If for any reason you prefer not to display your travel credentials (as we never display private or future trips), simply adjust the privacy settings for your Traxo Trophy Trophies Module at any time. To ensure you receive credit for all your trophies, be sure to link all of your travel programs to Traxo today.
