Since inception, Travelstart’s mission has been to leverage technology to improve the lives of travellers. When it comes to satisfying your urge for those last-minute travel deals, we need to be as innovative in communicating them as helping you secure them; meeting you with specials that are timely and personable in a place that is most meaningful to you. In 2015, the relationship we want to forge with our customers is one based on ease of use, trust and convenience.
Launched in 2014, Yo travelled a swift path to social app stardom; hitting 1 million downloads just two months after its unveiling and eventually reaching number 3 in the iOS app store. The real beauty of this made-for-mobile service is in its simplicity – there’s no typing needed. Users simply tap or double tap their way around the app – it’s a zero-character application and one of the simplest and most efficient communication tools in the world. It’s so new, yet so simple. A Yo message is what you want it to be – anything from a friendly nudge to a date invite, or in our case, a cheap flight price or weekend getaway deal Yo’d back to you. The sky is the limit.
We are now listed in the Yo Index, a list of services that users who are in discovery mode can subscribe to for real time information – moreover Travelstart is the first online travel agency to offer location based deals to book directly within the Yo app screen.
In addition to Yo being a fun way to ping friends and share content with each other, the Yo app is also one of the most efficient ways to subscribe to Travelstart fare alerts that are location specific – just Yo us and receive instant deals tailored to where you are.
Rush to your mobile app store now, search “Yo” and install that minimal app with a purple icon … “Yo” won’t be disappointed.
As a forerunner in online travel technology we are happy to be Yo-ing. Our customers use a variety of channels to communicate and consume content, and with Yo, Travelstart’s location-specific travel deals are just a tap or two away from them – Sergio Mello, Head of Innovation at Travelstart (SERGIOSTART on Yo).
