Travel is not just an action, travel is a mentality!

The travel industry has changed in the last past years and will even change faster in future. hotels and appartements are booked on hotel booking websites or airbnb. Flights are booked on flight booking websites. All the organisation of a trip can be done online. You can inform yourself about your destination in thousands of blogs and travel websites, but you can never choose from who you receive the advice.

We have started as a small team to develop the travel platform in 2017 and launched the first version of in a beta plus stadium on 17th of September 2017. With the feedback of the users we have redesigned the platform and improved the concept. With the relaunch on 1st of February 2018 we have launched a high quality application with a fresh design and have received awsome feedback in words and user growth. So in January 2019 we decided to really professionlize the whole UI/UX with a new commercial approach. At the moment we are working in several design sprint sessions to finalize the new concept and UI/UX of the platform. We probably will relaunch a brand new page around July/August.
