Travel Tech Next: TravelerBuddy Is Like a Business Traveler's Sidekick

Much like a Friday flight to Las Vegas, the market for travel apps is packed at the moment. However, we can always use another, especially one aimed at those who are always on the go.

TravelerBuddy is just that, a buddy that leaves with you on your vacation or business trip helping to guarantee it’s as painless as possible.

It’s entirely possible that you’ve never heard of the app, but you very well may in the next couple of months.

Its Kickstarter campaign has received a wealth of support so far: With 19 days to go it has neared is goal of $9,918 with $8,116 coming from nearly 100 backers.

As you will see in the following video, there is a reason travelers are clamoring for an app that boasts of becoming that one-stop shop for all your needs.

It seems a great deal of the features fit perfectly with the demands of the business traveler.

Consider TravelerBuddy that tech assistant that willingly keeps tabs on every facet of your itinerary, including what you might need as far as International visas.

The really cool part is how it might help you expense that dinner or hotel as you can even attach a photo of the bill to later print out for your report.

The campaign is quite confident in its promises: “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.”

And, again, it helps take the sting away from compiling all the various items for your expensing purposes after what was surely an exhausting trip: “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.”

Now the website states the app is in the “coming soon” stage of development. However, the Kickstarter campaign promises, for example, that those buying a pro membership at $4 (normally $9.99) will have their app delivered (or downloadable) by March.

The rest of 2016, we presume, will be easier to maneuver with an app that understands the plight of today’s business traveler.
