Southern Explorations, specializing in small group and private custom trips to Latin America, just made traveling with them even easier with a brand new free app. The adventure tour provider launched an interactive travel app that keeps important travel information organized and available at the touch of a button, even without an internet connection.
One of the first of its kind, the app includes a wealth of useful information, including:
- The traveler’s personalized trip itinerary
- Flight times and booking confirmation numbers
- Frequently asked questions about the country and region
- Health and safety information
- Local and regional weather forecasts
- Local restaurant recommendations
- Packing lists
- Tipping guides
Southern Explorations’ trips are famous for veering off the beaten path. Even in many of the larger cities where their passengers travel, there is no guarantee that Internet access will be readily or consistently available. Having all necessary information on hand and organized in one place provides travelers with everything they might want or need to know about their destination and their trip any time they want to access it.
For over a decade, Southern Explorations has worked with thousands of clients to plan and execute Latin American trips of a lifetime. Now, Southern Explorations’ travelers can access information about their destination and their trip on their tablet or phone ensuring they have all necessary information with them wherever they go. The app – named Southern Explorations – is available for free through iTunes and Google Play.
“More people are traveling with their tablets and phones; getting access to all of their trip information without a wifi connection is what they are looking for,” said Jonathan Borgida, Southern Explorations’ Director of Sales and Operations. “With these details at your fingertips – anywhere, anytime – you can relax and enjoy your trip.”
Southern Explorations is also working to make the app even more useful. The company is integrating social media into the app so travelers can share pictures, videos and their location with friends and family back home while they’re abroad.
