This Ukrainian service of finding cheap travel tours was among the top-10 tourist startups in the world in 2016 according to Seedstars World contest. Two years later, the website still has a lot to offer.

The site analyzes a huge database of 1 million hotels and apartments, 500 airlines and 150 countries.
The service also has a convenient option of combo-search, which selects the most affordable flights and hotels options. Afterwards, you can also book excursions or walking tours to complete the tour. TripMyDream also has a blog available in English to give you ideas for future destinations, and the daily deals with 50% and more discounts.
This travel service might come in handy for those want to explore Ukraine through and through. The site lets you choose a trip depending on preferences, for instance relaxing near water or focusing on sightseeing. You can also customize the search by location. Zruchno.Travel can also find hotels and fine dining spots near the selected destination for extra convenience.
Finally, the site also has a selection of weekend adventures, often coinciding with popular festivals like Leopolis Jazz Fest, Koktebel Jazz Fest or family-oriented events like Mama Fest. Unfortunately, at the moment the site doesn't have an English interface.
