During a trip across the Himalayas, the founders were having trouble finding a tea shop they had been to before, which gave rise to the idea for the platform. As committed tourists and motorbike riders, these infrequently annoying encounters like this brought to light the necessity for improved research and planning tools, which finally resulted in the creation of ‘KOGO.ai’.
One of the main features and services of the platform is its AI Trip Maker, which quickly creates custom itineraries with bookings for restaurants, attractions, experiences, lodging, and activities at reasonable pricing. An additional tool called Kogonaut Chat allows users to communicate with an AI travel expert to get advice and information on a range of travel-related topics, including locations, cuisine, customs, history, trivia, and advice.
Mappls KOGO primarily serves the travel and experiences industry. They are using a large bookable travel ecosystem. It includes flights, more than a million hotels, 300,000+ activities, 20,000+ comprehensive itineraries, and comprehensive route information. The Kogo X Travel Membership programme gives customers access to the lowest pricing without margins or commissions, even if the app is free for all users. KOGO.ai uses geospatial intelligence, real-time transport data, and unique AI technologies to transform travel and hyperlocal experiences.
The product has changed dramatically to a comprehensive vacation booking and discovery environment.
