All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. With the sites of Machu Picchu available at the click of a button and the Eiffel Tower only 10 hours away, many millennials yearn to travel the world, and with today’s technology it couldn’t be easier.
Businesses today will struggle to retain or attract talent if they cannot offer flexible work opportunities with the time and possibility to travel.
These three startups aim to provide easy travel options to entrepreneurs who travel, fly and work around the world.
Flightsayers: Flight-Prediction App
Flightsayers uses predictive analytics to identify delay patterns for millions of flights, helping you to book smarter. Entrepreneurs have schedules to meet, places to be and people to impress. Delayed flights would only slow down the whole progress.
Flightsayers helps people track their flights by providing up-to-the-minute predictions on what’s likely to impact its journey. If there’s an urgent business meeting and the flight is delayed, Flightsayers can help you compare alternatives and reschedule your flight before it’s too late and you turn up to an unimpressed business client.
Embark: Co-Work and Travel
When entrepreneurs need a break or a change of scenery, finding a travel buddy isn’t so easy — other people are working as well. Embark brings together a community of entrepreneurs and creative professionals who can work and travel together.
If there’s the need to plan all day at work, travelling isn’t the place to plan on the move. This travel program provides the community, accommodation, work space, and transportation without the need to plan for more.
Three extensive travelers, Justin, Dave and Fraser, who understand the joys of travelling, co-founded Embark to make working remotely seamless and give entrepreneurs the chance they always wanted to travel.
Ostays: The Ideal Accommodation
Ostays focuses on providing accommodation to suit anyone’s travel needs. It is the first hotel chain that uses the ideals of shared accommodation spaces to facilitate travelling.
With the click of a button, Ostays connects guests and owners to host carefully screened business executives, families and leisure guests on a short-term basis. Whether it be traveling for business purposes or leisure upon arrival, an entrepreneur will find a fully furnished condo.
Alternatively, a condo or unit can be hosted out and Ostays will provide maintenance, housekeeping, linen and marketing. A little extra cash could go a long way for a busy traveler.
