What’s WeAreTravelers all about?
WeAreTravelers is the new way to plan your vacation: Get everything set, exactly as you want it, instantly.
Hmm… Could you tell us a little bit more about it?
Travel planning has not been eaten by software. It is too manual and fragmented. You need to put together your itinerary from scratch and juggle accommodation and transportation across destinations on your own. Or go to a travel agency and get a cookie-cutter itinerary, or have back & forth for every option and no transparency.
WeAreTravelers is travel planning 2.0: The ultimate travel agent, in intuitive software. We give you your full vacation with 1 click. Customize it, exactly as you want it, instantly.

What problem/issue are you trying to solve?
Travel planning today is too manual and fragmented. You need to put together everything on your own, starting from scratch, going back and forth across various sites. Especially if you’re visiting more than 1 city, finalizing the dates on each destination and figuring out and arranging all transport and accommodation is a mini-project. And if you want e.g. to arrive 1 day later, you need to go and re-check availability and prices for each accommodation and transport one by one. Alternatively, you could go to a travel agency and get a cookie-cutter itinerary, with narrow (if any) selection among bland choices, herded within a large group. Or fill in tens of questions for someone to call you back another day and have back and forth for every potential change, without any transparency.
