TrekBuyFlyTM: Africa’s first social travel App goes live
What type of trip do you crave? Would you take a local trip across Nigeria, experience the beach by boat, climb Olumo rock, splash around in one of Nigeria's beautiful waterfalls, or simply spend the day being pampered or at an event with friends? Or perhaps plan your dream holiday around the world; glacier walking in Iceland, running with the herd in the Serengeti, tasting tea in China or much, much, more?
Nigeria and indeed Africa’s first Social Travel App, TrekBuyFlyTM satisfies all your travel, rip and group hangout wishes with one click. A simple swipe across your phone screen is the answer to all your travel wishes.
The TrekBuyFlyTM app was specifically built for the Nigerian and African market and helps users get off the beaten track or find the most pocket friendly trips, with student discount options and last moment sales! All of this whilst keeping friends updated through social media. The Application is available for download in the Google Playstore and the Apple App Store.
“Today’s traveller wants immediate answers. We want to know who’s in town when we arrive, what there is to do? We want to know the coolest places to hang out, the secret bars and see a little of the city too!” says Lola Adefope, General Manager of Business Travel Management Limited, developer of TrekBuyFlyTM app.
She continues- “We first came up with the idea when our classic clients kept calling us from their destinations after their meeting was done or shopping was completed, they would ask, ‘What else can we see, where can we just relax? What is outside the hotel?’TrekBuyFlyTM app gives you these answers!”
When asked why it’s called the Social Travel APP she replied, “Let’s face it, Africans are social, we like doing things together or carrying each other along! It’s the African way; it is especially the way we are in Nigeria! So when we built this, we decided to make group trips and hanging out doing other activities a lot less complicated.”
Amongst the long-term goals of developing the TrekBuyFlyTM app is to encourage Nigerians to travel and experience our own country and the world beyond our borders as well as utilising the app to improve internal tourism development in Nigeria.
At an elaborate corporate event in Lagos, TrekBuyFlyTM app was officially launched in two interconnecting waterside venues simultaneously. After a wine evening cocktail at Raddison Blu Anchorage Hotel Lagos, VIP guests were transported by luxury boat across the lagoon to an invitation only star-studded party at Tivoli Gardens in Ikoyi.
On arrival- guests posed on the red carpet then wandered through the TrekBuyFlyTM Amazing Maze for a thrilling experience. One guest said “The maze was great! There were surprises in each corner as you found your way around. We saw jugglers and the African corner with palm wine and even met a Sheik who told us Amazing Maze secrets!” another guest said “All events should be this much fun!”
Another guest who repeatedly roamed the maze said; “I saw my friend post online that there was a mirror selfie corner! How did I miss that? “. “We love the metaphor of the TrekBuyFlyTM maze- with the APP we are making our travel less complicated, planning our trips and meeting up with friends doesn’t have to be difficult or stressful at all, it’s easy now with TrekBuyFlyTM in our pocket!”
In continued celebration of the TrekBuyFlyTM App, TrekBuyFlyTM will be running competitions to send lucky winners on a fully paid holiday. Simply download the TrekBuyFlyTM app from the Google Playstore or the Apple App store and choose which holiday you want to win! It’s that simple! #Trekbuyfly
