‘Does the world need another Travel App’? It is a question we get asked on a regular basis here at TakeMeAway; and our followers may have asked themselves the same thing.

Both myself and Tom consider ourselves seasoned travellers. We’ve used booking.com and Expedia ourselves (a lot) when planning travel – both locally and all around the world. We found the user experience wasn’t exactly what we were looking for – and so we built TakeMeAway.

We had two aims when we started developing the app:

  1. To make travel what it should be – an inspirational and exciting experience.
  2. To allow the user to set their budget and book their last minute weekend away safely.

In addition existing ‘solutions’ are cumbersome and non-transparent. Especially for last minute weekend getaways. We aim to revitalise the travel experience and inspire travellers to find their perfect getaway.

We’re careful not to use the word ‘revolutionise’ with our app – th. But we can certainly try to create an elegant solution that doesn’t limit and frustrate our users. Especially with an app focusing on the last minute travel. I sincerely hope we can live up to such ambition once our app is released!

Next week, we’ll discuss why last minute travel is so important along with why we’re focusing on only weekends.

In the meantime, think about your own experiences with travel apps and if you have any thoughts and ideas, please share it with us via hello@TakeMeAway.io
