What do we do?

We help independent travellers to discover, book and pay - in the interesting corners of the world. We’re a marketplace for travellers and tourist businesses, working across mobile & web.

By working with 60+ currencies, we help travellers save on currency and bank fees, and help local businesses to reduce booking and payment costs.

Why join us?

1) We're early stage (and somewhat stealthy), so you'll be able to make a big impact
2) Our founding team and advisors have strong experience in fintech and travel
3) We love travel, and our aim is to get every employee at least one new passport stamp each year!

Technical challenges

1) Continually improving the features our merchant customers rely on across multiple countries, timezones and all kinds of mobile phones
2) Introducing new apps aimed at travellers to bring them local information and the ability to book on the go.
3) Optimising our payments infrastructure for speed, reliability and cost.
