Project Description

How many times have you decided to go on a trip and then had to spend hours googling "10 best places to visit in XYZ" or "things to do in XYZ"? Do you store all the places you want to visit but don't currently have the funds or time to go yet? Are those places you want to visit stored in random note apps, sent to friends via Instagram DMs, or in an excel sheet/word doc somewhere? Do you have to compare all your locations together plotted on a Google Maps to see which ones are close enough to each other to visit each day? Well stress no longer!

We're your solution for a simplified platform to discover new locations from around the world as well as having a central place to store all the places you want to visit in the future! 

Revney is a mobile app like Tinder but instead of swiping for people, you will be swiping for locations, events, and restaurants. We will store everything you liked and use it to create personalized travel itineraries.

 

Our mission is to bring travelers and everyone with wanderlust across the world an easy way to plan your future trips, no more messy excels or forgetting the name of that one place you saw two years ago that you really wanted to visit and now that you have the time to go, you can't find it anymore. -Trust me, we've been there!

Almost everyone has a country or city they want to visit and we want to save people hours of planning and researching what to do in the places they're visiting. With Revney, you can swipe for all the places you want to visit and we'll handle creating your itinerary on our end! We will decide which locations you want to visit are closest to each other to minimize how many times you have to take a train or Uber to the next location, saving you time and money!

 

Some current travel stats:

- People visit an average of 38 websites for travel research

- 42% of millennial travelers say researching for vacations is one of their biggest stresses

Millennial travelers get bored after 40 min of travel research

Travel ranks #2 in consumer spending priority in 2018

 

Based on all the information above, it's obvious there's a currently a huge inconvenience in the way people plan travel today and most people don't want to dish out a bunch of money for a travel planner and instead spend hours going through sites so they can get the most out of their vacations. 

 

Currently, our team consists of two founders, Sandra Liu and Bowen Liu. We are both recent college grads and software engineers with a passion for travel. When we planned our 40 day trip across Japan and China this past summer, we dealt with all the problems we listed above. After the long nights spent planning our perfect trip, we realized that all of our friends were doing the same things. We couldn't imagine how stressful it would be to plan all of this while we were working full-time when it was already stressful for us just planning in between our classes and finals. We want to make your vacations exactly what they should be, a time to destress, not add stress!

 

Thank you for taking the time to read through our mission and we hope you will join us! We are slowly but surely making progress developing Revney for iOS as well as web so users across the globe can experience stress-free vacation and travel planning!

Please feel free to reach out to me at sandra@revney.com for any questions or ideas you may have! We are currently hosting beta-testing for Revney on the App Store, please also reach out if you would like to join our betatest group to provide us feedback as well as suggestions for the app. Looking forward to hearing from you!
