The summer and pre-holiday period is one of the most challenging times of the year: the weight of the months spent in the office, just a few weeks before the well-deserved vacation, is felt and in this complicated psycho-physical juncture we often find ourselves having to organize many aspects of the upcoming vacation.

More and more startups are deciding to focus their business on services that can simplify or solve the problems that arise from year to year: booking the cheapest travel, choosing hotels or holiday homes with the best quality/price ratio, finding logistical and organizational solutions best suited to couple, family or group travel.

Here are some solutions that may be right for you: they are startups in the portfolio of Club Italia Invesitmenti 2 in which you can invest starting from 100 euros.

Wanderio is a web platform that proposes a door-to-door travel model as the founders define it: you can choose every single stage of your journey, from your front door to your final destination by comparing flights, trains, ferries and other connecting services such as taxis, buses and shuttles. Once the itinerary is created - based on price, travel time and even CO2 emissions - you can book everything online in the same portal avoiding the long ping pong between the websites of tourism companies, airlines and local authorities (an average of 22 per trip).
Born in 2014, today the site covers over 700 airports, more than 2,000 train stations in Italy and over 500 destinations in Europe that can be reached by bus. All without commission costs that burden the end user.

Antlos is the service designed for lovers of relaxation and less busy holidays. It was created with the aim of making the boat experience accessible to a wide audience of tourists and travelers who want to live an experience at sea. Through the platform you can choose the location of the holiday, the boat in which you will stay and the skypper who will act as a guide for the period booked. With a few tens of euros per day per person you can organize stays in the best seas of Europe, under the guidance of experts with years of experience in maritime and tourism. The service thinks also to the neophytes dedicating them an entire section on-line with the advices for the first time in boat and proposing cruises all inclusive, including all the costs of the cruise. Antlos is a perfect combination of sharing economy and original ideas for holidays.

Before leaving for the holidays or close to the beginning of the school year it is possible that some member of the family needs a review. The aim of OilProject, Italy's largest free online school, is to help you study effectively wherever you are. Thanks to the collaboration of 50 teachers and over 5000 video lessons, a million users a month are supported in their school subjects. Maths, history, literature, chemistry and biology, philosophy, physics and earth sciences: OilProject has everything you need to make up for any gaps in your knowledge or brush up on difficult subjects. Texts and video lessons summarize the main ideas in a clear and accessible way, and in an area dedicated to exercises each student can test their preparation.
One of the strengths of the service is that it is free of charge for students: according to data from consumer associations, 45% of Italian students take private lessons every year, for a total of 850 million euros spent on tutoring.

To support these and 61 other innovative projects you can participate in the public offering of Club Italia Investimenti 2 on the equity crowdfunding platform Mamacrowd.
