Have you ever been on the road and suddenly realised you don’t know where you’re going? Ever started a trip and then discovered that you have to make a change to your plans? Well, we know that feeling and that’s where Travel Buddy is here to help.
What You Get
You get a friend on the road should you need it. Someone who’s on your side and will work to help you make the best of every situation. We make no commission from any tour agency, hotel or transportation company so our recommendations are always tailored toward suiting you.
The last minute nature of our system allows us to give you access to some of the best last minute deals that are out there, meaning you could get a five star experience for a one star price!
You get a knowledgeable tour and guide who has accumulated many years of travel across the globe. Their years of travel experience means that they’ve probably been in a few sticky situations themselves so know the best tricks for finding you last minute recommendations.
Our easy to use system allows you stay in touch with your Travel Buddy in the way that most suits you. We operate via Whatsapp, Facebook and Email. We will also send you alerts on upcoming flights, tours and accommodation bookings.
How It Works
The system couldn’t be simpler and easily accessible for everyone. Simply send your travel buddy a message through your desired platform, telling them what you need and they will get back to you within just a few hours. We aim to get back to you as quickly as possible, and reply speeds vary based on your package type. We also insist that you shouldn’t ask us about anything you want to happen in the next 18 hours, we can’t always work that quickly! Dependant on your package type, you will only get a certain amount of questions per day, so use them wisely! Check out our short video here to see how it works.
