A social app that connects travelers to people and activities
Problem Statement: During user surveys and 1-1 interviews, we discovered that 85% of users travel with at least one companion (friend, spouse, child or other family-member, significant other, or pet) or if traveling alone agree that at least once during their solo traveler that desired to meet up with other travelers. Therefore, we believe that users prefer to have companionship while traveling and that we might be able to help if we provide the ability for travelers (whether alone or with others) to connect and meet up with other fellow travelers. We might be able to do this by incorporating a social-app component that will connect travelers in similar locations to access one another through messaging and activities. Doing this will allow our product to connect the lonely or remotely located traveler, or even groups of travelers seeking the opportunity to meet others, in order to make travel more fulfilling when users can easily share new experiences with others.
