Whym Puts The Spontaneity Back In Travel

Planning an itinerary can be arduous work. Thankfully, we live in an age when you can just forget the careful planning and allow technology be your guide.

One way is through the travel app Whym, which is like an entertainment wingman of sorts. As its name would suggest, it allows you to fly off to a destination and not worry about all that pesky planning.

Jack Harris, Whym CEO, explains: “More than ever, travelers today want to be flexible and spontaneous while visiting destinations, planning as they go versus structured, fixed schedules. Whym not only meets this need from any smartphone or tablet anytime, but also helps people save money doing fun and adventurous activities.”

As you see on the website, using the app is easy and starts with poring over the app’s list of cities to pick one that you might be visiting. You select various tours and experiences you might enjoy immediately – all without a preemptive and painstaking research project that usually comes in tandem with sorting out an itinerary.

From there, you get specific on how many tickets you might need for, say the Golden Gate Bay Cruise, and you can utilize your purchase in-app or through the email you provided. Whym currently caters to travelers in ten cities worldwide with European offerings in London, Barcelona, Paris, Rome and Amsterdam and American options in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Las Vegas and New York.

Harris continues on the inherent value of Whym: “Adventure seekers, wanderlusters, tourists, or simply locals looking for fun in their city can now access and book via Whym. It also helps tourism and travel businesses of all kinds sell their unused tickets, gain foot traffic, and business.”

As mentioned on the website, travelers using Whym may be enjoying savings up to 60 percent off popular tourism attractions. Of course, you will still do your homework and settle all the must-see places and must-do events before you board a plane.

You are a responsible traveler, after all.

There are those times when you have a few hours to fill, and that’s where Whym comes in. Or, if you are the brave sort that embarks on a journey with exciting spontaneity, then you now have a tool in Whym.
