HONG KONG: Social travel startup iloho.com today unveiled a revamped website (www.iloho.com) and iOS app, the most significant product milestone this year, featuring a new user interface. The site is completely redesigned with an elegant visual interface for users to discover people, events and places around the world. It also features flight booking for global travelers eyeing the cheapest fares, backed by iloho's commitment to "never knowingly undersold," by partnering with India's leading airline consolidator, Mystifly. The website offers social discovery between travelers and locals, and the iOS app lets users chat, share photos and location, and discovering nearby users to connect with. The app debuted in July with users from 61 countries and is free to download from Apple's AppStore.
"There is a sensational feeling about meeting interesting people that you can actually connect with, especially when you're traveling. To stumble upon serendipitous meet ups that fate would not likely have arranged otherwise. Our users love the new design and the content we have curated, and we are bringing together the best of Expedia, Couchsurfing and Eventbrite, and allow users to create local happenings and public events in any city," said Jimmy Yeoh, CEO of iloho.
Six months later, the result is a website combining social discovery, flight booking from over 900 airlines and aggregation of the 500 largest music festivals, fashion shows, carnivals and networking events in over 450 cities. Users also benefit from the new iOS app that allows spontaneous interaction between travelers and locals, indicating distances of other users from your current location.
In line with iloho's commitment to never knowingly undersell, users who find cheaper online air tickets across all seating classes will be given a 110% refund of the fare difference. "Mystifly empowers organizations with intelligent fares management and pricing tools interfacing with multi-GDS & direct airline content. Users of iloho will have access to discounted airfares originating from over 51 countries, 900+ airlines inclusive of Low Cost Carriers", said Rajeev Kumar, CEO & Managing Director for Mystifly.
iloho believes social discovery changes how we travel. Whether chatting over coffee or exploring a new city together, these new social discoveries enhance our travel experiences. Today marks iloho's new chapter in its journey to help travelers travel better.
