TravelerBuddy is an elegantly designed, innovative and intuitive travel-management-tool, developed in Switzerland and Singapore by and for business people and frequent travelers. 

Unlike established travel management apps, TravelerBuddy offers numerous additional features, besides the standard automatic itinerary creation feature most travel management apps carry. These additional features make managing trips a whole lot easier and more enjoyable, for both Personal Assistants assisting in travel arrangements and business and frequent travelers doing the traveling. 

For the automatic creation of an itinerary, all it takes is the forwarding of your flight details or hotel confirmation emails to TravelerBuddy. If the email is unavailable, the manual entry of your travel details such as meetings and business lunches can also set off the automatic itinerary creation function. 

Based on stored user profile, your little travel companion checks and informs you early enough on the required and valid documents, simplifying the annoying and time-consuming task of filling-in immigration and customs forms. Easily synchronizable with your agenda, the App also sends timely alerts via emails and "push" messages to ensure that you will always be in the right place at the right time. Thanks to a unique "Buddy" function transferring relevant travel information from the App’s drop down menu becomes child’s play. All you have to do is to copy information from the menu and paste it in the online check-in fields. All current trip documents and personal details for immigration forms are securely stored in encrypted form and always available offline. 

Throughout your trip, you are but a click away from all relevant information from airport terminal, boarding time, passport number, hotel addresses integrated with location on google maps, restaurant bookings, conference start time, contact numbers etc. Individual travel details can also be changed manually, and information in the form of personal notes, files and images can be uploaded at any time. So you can for example, attach a photo of a business dinner bill or hotel invoice to the corresponding trip, have these printed out and attached to your expense report at your own convenience. 

There is nothing that TravelerBuddy cannot update in real-time, so the traveler will always have the most updated travel summary at hand, no matter where he is. 

The end of your business trip works like a dream too. With the push of one button, you will be able to print all your travel information into a neat little trip summary. 

Get ready for a hassle-free travel experience with TravelerBuddy. 

Early 2016 TravelerBuddy is available as an app for iOS (Apple) and Android as well as a web-based solution.


Risks and challenges

With the high expectations we have, the key challenge will be whether we can translate that which is in our heads into something useful yet revolutionary for our users.

We started this campaign to get funding for unexpected programming issues which led to additional costs. Delivery is a certainty, though some features will be made available only over the next few months in new releases.
