For some people, traveling solo is not an option.
MissTravel, a premier dating service, hopes to address this issue by helping individuals find a travel buddy or partner with similar, open-minded views on exploring new destinations. To facilitate such arrangements, the company recently launched a convenient mobile app (available on iOS and Android devices).
“When we travel, we leave nothing to chance, making sure our transportation and accommodations are planned to a tee,” said Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of MissTravel. “So why leave your date up to serendipity? MissTravel is the travel agent of love, connecting people who believe travel is a richer experience when shared. With MissTravel you’ll never have to travel alone again.”
How Does it Work?
To get started, you’ll need to sign up with the service. Men will have to pay a reasonable membership fee, while women can use the app for free. Once in the app, the first thing you should do is create a profile. Like most dating platforms, having an engaging, informative profile is essential to getting the most out of the digital experience.
After the formalities of creating a profile, you can move on to the fun stuff. Creating a trip allows you to invite others based on an itinerary that you’ve already setup, or go along with another member’s plans. From this section, you can also specify whether or not you’ll cover the airfare and accommodations. Opting out of the perk will require your partner to shoulder his or her own expenses for the trip.
Safety Greatly Guaranteed
The MissTravel app offers a very unique experience for the highly adventurous. There are several precautions that the company, which has been around since 2012, takes to keep its members safe. Strict background checks for criminal offenses are conducted on users. The platform also recommends to exercise logic and common sense at all times when setting up travel plans.
Again, like most popular social and companion apps, it’s not possible to eliminate all of the risks associated with dating a complete stranger. But, it is reassuring to know that the service does go out of its way to screen active members- even on a very basic level.
Perfect for Fast-paced Lifestyles
The exciting dating app is certainly not for everyone, but it does cater to a growing niche of savvy, modern travelers. Many hard-working individuals usually supplement their lifestyles with fun vacations. But due to their tight schedules, the traditional dating scene may not always be an option.
“I have been fortunate to meet some amazing people, and I have stayed friends with many of them,” said Monika Kopecka, a 36-year-old flight attendant based in the UK.
“Romance sometimes stems from a situation where you spend close time together. It’s early days, but I think I have spent more time with him in the last two months than any other person in the last two years,” explained Kopecka after going on a series of dates and finding a suitable partner from the dating app.
