I’m in the process of planning a group trip with my friends right now, and let me tell you it’s kind of a nightmare. In fact, I can’t remember really any group trip I’ve planned that’s been completely hassle free or non-stressful: but I think that’s the nature of the beast.
However, there are some entrepreneurs out there who don’t want to accept this as status quo and have built platforms to help ease the burden of dividing and collecting funds, agreeing on a common destination, setting an itinerary, or picking a date. Travefy was built, as the team says, to be the defacto solution for group trip organization.
It was built as a fully mobile platform and operates seamlessly on either iOS or Android, but the team just announced a new version of the iOS app, due to popular user demand. Specifically it promotes better offline access, especially for those traveling via subway or airline, while also allowing for a more efficient UX.
“Our commitment is to solve all of the coordination headaches of group trip planning,” says David Chait, cofounder and CEO. “As a part of this commitment we recognize that our users are planning trips, having conversations, checking their itineraries, and tracking expenses on the go, so the release of Travefy’s iOS app is a true game-changer that makes our tools even more accessible. Even further offline access to one’s itinerary, conversations, and trip details is a huge step forward.”
You can rest easy knowing that Chait knows what he’s doing on this app too, because Travefy was actually built after he had to deal with a chaotic bachelor party planning experience. When a chain of over 80 emails still didn’t yield a common date for the group, he knew there had to be a better way.
He’s made it his goal ever since to empower Travefy users to pull together once in a lifetime experiences with their friends, all in one central and easy to use place. Whether you’re a couple dreaming of a long weekend getaway, or an event planner trying to coordinate logistics for a giant crowd, Travefy was built to assuage what ails you.
