Travello is a free mobile application that connects travellers and locals around the world. It allows users to match with likeminded people while spending time abroad, as well as providing a space to share photos, videos and stories on a feed, or simply ask other travellers for tips and advice. The app is available in more than 150 countries and can be downloaded on iOS or Android.

 

One of my favourite features offered by Travello is the ability to join groups that match your interests. You can choose from a range of categories, including entertainment, art, sport and leisure, to find a whole host of different groups in destinations you are planning on travelling to. Once you have joined a group, you can then interact with the other members to arrange meet-ups, events and activities. This is the perfect tool when travelling alone as you can quickly find people who share your interests, meaning that when you meet you will already have common ground.

 

Another feature that I like in particular is the travel deals section. Many backpackers are often on a tight budget when travelling and it is easy to fall into tourist traps, where you will find yourself getting ripped off. With the travel deals you can discover the best offers around, meaning you will save time and money in trying to find the cheapest deal. If there are no travel deals that suit your preferences, you can pose a question that is sure to be quickly answered by Travello’s community of users.

 

An area of the platform I feel could be improved is the blog. Although the articles that appear are interesting and informative, there is a lack of general content, such as packing tips or city guides. More posts with useful information would make Travello more encompassing.
