So imagine this for a second, you did all the hard work, saved enough money to book that flight and finally, today is the day 1 of your travels.

You arrived in the new city all excited and ready to explore.

So many things to do, to see, to eat, to try.

As a smart traveler, you already know this and even wrote a list of things you wanted to see but in the rush of things, you forgot where you put it.

You spend next 10 mins going through every pockets on your backpack and hand carry but with no luck.

You have no idea where is that piece of paper!

You know you have been in this situation before but you remind yourself, people forget things so what!

You try googling but get overwhelmed with too many options and want to get a local personal opinion. So, you decide to go out and ask a receptionist. She tells you what you want to know and nothing more.

You get a vague idea and you run with it. You are wearing your favourite clothes and shoes. You are excited to be there after counting down months and weeks like crazy!

Now, you are out and quickly you realize it’s too hot and humid.

You want a cold beverage and a snack or even a famous food that particular country is famous for. You are hungry and sweating like a pig but you don’t care anymore and start crossing another set of traffic lights in the hope to feed yourself something good, perhaps something instagram worthy!

However, you don’t even see any supermarkets around you, forget restaurants. You don’t ask anyone because they don’t understand english. You tell yourself, I should probably head back to my hotel and if i find something on the way back, great. If not, I’ll ask reception again or just spend more time googling.

You realize you been walking in circles for last 30 minutes!

You are starting to get annoyed and 45 minutes later, you are still nowhere close to your accommodation. You admit to yourself you are lost but still adamant to find your way back.

You don’t want to disappoint that traveler in you.. so, after sweating for an hour and half finally you find your way back.

You tell yourself tomorrow will be better.

Tomorrow you want to sleep in your fancy hotel bed and want to go for beautiful sunset and evening walking tour followed by dinner at the famous but hidden local gem.

But hotel management tells you guided tours are run only in the second Monday and third Wednesday mornings and there is a minimum of 5 people!

You tell them but it’s not mentioned in their website.  They tell you- it is a recent change and yet to be updated in the website!

Now, you have to reorganize your travel plans.

Now, imagine this for a second, 

You did all the hard work, saved enough money to book that flight and finally, today is the day 1 of your travels.

You arrived in the new city all excited and ready to explore.

But there are so many things to do, to see, to eat, to try.

As a smart traveler, you already know this and you actually live up to the definition of Smart traveler. No time is wasted on looking for piece of paper!

must-have-travel-app

You have TripScout app installed in your phone.

You know with TripScout you can travel on your terms.

Local and authentic self-guided city tour whenever you want. This is every traveler’s dream aka the flexibility to travel at your own schedule and pace.

Listening to engaging audio guides on an offline map with GPS; navigating around the city without using your data or international roaming plan. And it’s customizable depending on your mood and interests. What a smart idea!

If you love exploring cool neighborhoods, trying local restaurants, sipping the best coffee or cocktails, and seeing all the iconic sites while learning about the local history, culture, and food as you go along. You will love TripScout.

No sweating, no getting lost, no waiting around for 5 people and no hungry traveler.

Problem Solved.

As a smart traveler, you know your time is valuable and you use it accordingly.

Hence I didn’t want to include the whole research I did for you guys. So, here’s the two important questions answered from the CEO, Co- founder of TripScout Konrad Waliszewski himself.

stay-single-until-this-happens

Me: Could you please share how it all started ?

Konrad: I built the app to solve a real problem for myself. I have traveled to approximately 100 countries and I was tired of how manual the process was to figure out what to do when I arrived in a new city.

While there are a lot of great tools to help find a flight or hotel, figuring out what to actually see and do when I arrived was a pain. How do you evaluate the top 7,000 things to do on popular listings sites and who wants to be “that guy” pulling out his guidebook at every corner?

The existing tools especially lacked the ability to take you off the beaten path and show you the more local side of a city. I also loved podcasts and wanted to learn about the things I was exploring with audio guides.

I decided to use my background in entrepreneurship, technology, and travel writing/photography to fix this so that all travelers can have a better travel experience and so I can have the tool I always wanted when I travel.

Me: Future for TripScout?

Konrad: We will continue to build technology and travel the world in order to develop the best travel resource out there for the modern explorer. We are working hard to add new cities (we are just over 60 cities right now) and build features that we observe from studying travelers and destinations. We will likely always focus on being highly curated, but our product will likely start incorporating more personalization and community as well.

Thanks Konrad!

    Excuse me for only reading the first part of the title, and didn’t realize this was about an app. So while I was reading the first part of the article, I was thinking to myself, why don’t an app exist that has every type of information you need during your travel, that you don’t have to even worry about writing a list beforehand and then there it was, you mentioned TripScout. This is great to solve all your problems! I wish this existed since years ago but happy that now it’s available for use! A must download.

    Trip book sounds like an app my son would really be interested in using. He uses his phone for everything and I am thinking this would make his life really easier when traveling. Plus he is such a phone geek. We traveled to europe this past summer and that would have come in really handy.

    When I get a chance in traveling I make little plan ahead of time for places to see or each. There are times when I ask around about restaurants that are great or look it up when I get there. If and when I do get a chance to travel I’ll have to check this out.

    TripScout sounds very convenient, specially with its offline map and the walking tour guides. We are off to a Europe for two weeks soon, and I may give it a shot now, while the information is still new.
