Bus booking made simple — Vollo
Vollo is a travel search, comparison and booking service in Croatia. It allows travelers to easily compare different types of transportation and book tickets in simplest way possible, without registration required.
The name of the product, vollo is derivative from italian ‘volare’ which means ‘fly’.
Two letters ‘LL’ represent bus seats, tilted backwards for 7 degrees, which is a global standard for transportation seats. The purple colour was used to distinguish the brand from the rest of similar products on market.
The booking process
Our main focus while building the product was on booking process. We wanted for our customers to be able to book a ticket within a four simple steps.
User has to fill the simple ‘from – to’ form and hit search, choose the best option, fill the passenger details and pay for the tickets. We also integrated one of the best payment provider Braintree (Paypal Company) for easier and safer checkout process.
After booking user receives e-mail with a ticket in pdf format which has to be printed to onboard a bus. Ticket is designed in a way that can be easily folded and stored in a pocket.
Bus companies selling their tickets over Vollo’s service have the access to admin portal. From there they can monitor their sales and make better business decisions.
Since the service is B2C, it is very important for website to perform well.
