About Us

Why We Created Jauntaroo

Have trouble deciding where to go on vacation? Don’t know your options? Trying to plan within a budget? If you answered YES to any of these questions, then Jauntaroo is the vacation planning tool you need.

We created Jauntaroo to answer the age-old question, “Where should I go on vacation?” With around 300 global destinations, we deliver a customized list of destinations; allowing you to effectively and objectively explore and compare destinations based your own vacation preferences and budgets. Some think of us as a vacation search engine.

How it Works

It’s simple, just follow three easy steps:

1. Tell us what you want in your vacation by selecting up to 5 icons

2. Use the sliding scale to adjust your per-person budget

3. Click the "Find Matches" button

Let the fun begin by viewing your customized list of vacation options! Click on the destinations that beckon your name and view the wealth of information we have compiled for you.

If you want more options, then use our “Advanced Finder” to select from a full list of vacation icons and to change the length of your vacation.

We’ve already done the hard work. Each destination is evaluated by Jauntaroo’s team of researchers on more than 50 attributes. Vacation search results are based on a blended combination of our team’s research and user feedback. Users receive natural search results they can trust.

Want to have more fun? Create your wish list of vacation destinations by selecting “Want To Go.” Already visited somewhere; then click “Been There.” You can even share your vacation matches with friends via Facebook, Twitter, Pintrest and Tumblr.

Travel with a cause

At Jauntaroo, we believe in leaving the world a better place than when we found it.  Experiencing new cultures, foreign lands and different lands is a powerful gift.  We have dedicated a portion of Jauntaroo to highlighting efforts promoting education, health and well-being world-wide (A.K.A. VolunTourism). We feature these organizations and donate $1 for every reservation made through Jauntaroo.  We call it "Travel With A Cause.” Please help us support these organizations and their important work.

LiVe Different's Holiday Hero

Established in 2000, Live Different’s Hero Holiday provides youth an opportunity to change their lives by meeting the needs of others who live in poverty. Throughout the year, the program provides opportunities for high school students to participate in humanitarian relief projects by bringing practical assistance to those living in extreme poverty. Activities may include building homes, distributing supplies, providing food, mobile medical clinics and working with children at risk. The program allows students to see first-hand how two-thirds of the world lives, expanding their world views and giving them an opportunity to become educators on world poverty by sharing experiences. Visit LiveDifferent.com to learn more and get involved.

What's Coming Next?

Jauntaroo launched the second version of the site in late 2012. We are so excited to include more destinations with new, exciting information and imagery.  We also enhanced our search functionality and gave you more options to search.
