Make Your Travel an Awesome Adventure

So, you have decided on a travel destination. Whether on vacation or for work, having a great trip depends a lot about knowing where to go, when and with important reservations lined up.

Given the tools available today, planning a multi-day, multi-location trip (with places, eats, activities, transport, etc.) is a fairly complex endeavour. 

Having an awesome trip involves many hours of research, organising routes and expertly navigating foreign locations (whilst avoiding local scammers, threading through chaotic traffic and some very different cultures). You are investing quite a bit to get there. You have only a few short days. You want to make your travel .. Epic.

Travaa was started with the simple idea of seriously empowering a traveller to better plan and navigate any trip in any foreign territory.

The world is an exciting place.

Life is short. Travel like a pro. There's plenty to explore.

Founder

Travaa was started by Chris Wong here in New Zealand. He loves the excitement of travel (who doesn't?!) and learning about different cultures. He has been travelling since an early age - with a backpack, cheap standby tickets (compliments of his mother who worked for an international airline) and big dreams of experiencing the world! Since then, he has been on numerous overseas trips for work/business.

Experience from years of planning and leading various overseas vacations for family/friends (which they still talk and laugh about today) has taught Chris that planning an unforgettable trip involves: way too many hours of pre-trip research, messing around with unwieldy booking/budget spreadsheets, mapping frustrations and a stack of notes for each place. This is hard work for some of us with busy full-time jobs and family commitments, looking to getaway. 

For the business traveller, the challenge of the "travelling salesman problem" is not too different. There are many contacts and touch points to cover efficiently with very limited time.

Contact

We pour a lot of care and attention into Travaa, and we hope you find it useful.

We wish you safe Travels, and only the most Awesome Adventures!
