UniTravel is an application that will allow users to search for accommodation, a wide variety of activities and a range of other things to do in their area or abroad.

The idea behind the thought of this project was chosen after my own previous experiences of trying to organise and book holidays during my summer months as a student. A lot of student do not realise that they can avail of student discounts while abroad, after doing extensive research of the market there was not application out there specifically tailored for students. While gathering research about the market, I realised that another huge factor would be student accommodation, many students will stay in hostels or rent out apartments. After researching the travel market there was no website or application out there for students offering student rates or offering student friendly accommodation. so I decided to combine the two ideas into a single app that students would use.

The project involved using a number of elicitation techniques which then needed to be documented and then analysed, these would be then used to create a detailed requirements specification document. These techniques involved a brainstorming session, a survey, a series of interviews, a requirements workshop, two prototypes and an interface analysis. A list of project stakeholders was gathered at the start of the project, this was then followed up with determining each stakeholders power and interest in the project. Extensive research is required for each technique, other techniques will be illustrated and documented during the progression of the report.

The elicitation results will then be recorded, documented and analysed. This will help determine what key features will be included in the app.

The results will be used to formulate a detailed IEEE Requirements Specification for the UniTravel app. The results will be used by a development team to construct the UniTravel App.
