Travlr Co. was born out of a desire to create solutions for budget travelers. Our goal is to make it easier for travelers to have a safe, stress-free journey–even if they are on an extremely tight budget. Travel is still wrought with unnecessary hassles that detract from the journey itself and everything it has to offer. Valuable time is spent doing research on the myriad of services and information required; including but not limited to: transportation options, connection with other travelers and to events/activities. Budget transportation can be the most difficult thing to arrange, especially to places that are not serviced by public transportation.

Our ultimate goal is to build products that put many travel hassles in the past. Our first product is an app called Hovr, initially launched in 2016 and then relaunched in 2022. It’s a carpooling app that connects you with locals or other travelers already planning to travel a similar route or to the same place, willing to sell you a seat in their vehicle for a reasonable fee. It can even be used for ‘adventure trips’ like surfing and snowboarding. The driver sets the price. This is already a popular mode of travel all across Europe, and for good reason. It’s more comfortable, faster, and cheaper than most trains, and provides private-driver level service at bus level fares. Since the driver is already going from point A to point B (and they are not a taxi) its better for the environment and roadway congestion. Plus, you have the added bonus of meeting another traveler or local (your driver) who may be friendly enough to give you tips about the city you’re traveling to. It’s a wonderful alternative to conventional modes of transportation while traveling.
