Origin Adds A Game-Changing Where-Can-I-Go Feature To Its App

By CIOReview | Thursday, April 28, 2022

The new function tailors trip recommendations based on the user's travel behaviors and choices regarding COVID regulation.

FREMONT, CA: Where am I supposed to go?" This is a frequently asked question among modern travelers. While many have rediscovered their courage to explore, many are overwhelmed and anxious about the complexities of ever-changing legislation in a transformed travel world. While several new services aim to assist travelers with handy maps, search choices, and similar features, they all lack a critical component: personalized advice tailored to the customer's individual needs.

"We started thinking on how to combine industry knowledge with personal preferences that users share with us," states Origin co-founder and CEO Eli Bressert. " Origin, the travel planning app, brings its most personalized feature to date, the first of its type in the industry. The easy tool considers travel preferences and COVID restriction laws to assist users in making an informed decision about their next vacation. It's a game-changer in terms of customized and inspirational travel.

"We looked at solutions out in the market but none of them give you recommendations tailored to your needs. That's where we saw an opportunity to further empower travelers," adds Bressert.

The personalized travel tool, which is available for free in the Origin app, employs a combination of machine intelligence and professional curators to inspire extraordinary experiences suited to individual travel tastes. Users enter their vaccination status, comfort level with limits, and any restrictions they wish to avoid," such as required quarantines," The tool quickly displays perfectly-matched travel alternatives. It's far more than a list of destinations; it's a collection of unique, creative adventures tailored to how Origin members prefer to travel.

This is a one-of-a-kind feature. It is updated regularly to ensure that users get the most up-to-date information on where and how to travel. Additionally, users receive a weekly roundup of new destinations and adventures that match their profile. With refreshed material whenever a COVID or other restriction is modified, this feature is a natural extension of Origins' commitment to delivering completely individualized travel.

Interested travelers pay a $3,000 USD annual membership fee for limitless trip servicing and use the Origin app to communicate with Origin exactly how they want to travel and what they want from their following excursions. Personalization improves with each trip taken by the same individual.

Origin is committed to making a good difference globally and the locations its members visit. That is why the firm carbon offsets all of its members' travel and selects accommodations and places that have a solid connection to the local community and adhere to Origins sustainability principles. In light of the destruction in Ukraine, Origin is matching all employee donations to aid war victims. Origin will match any donation made by an individual up to $500 to a charity of their choice.

“We created Origin because modern travel has become extremely complicated and we believe that transformational travel allows people to live out their dreams,” concludes Eli. “The barrier of travel planning, the time it consumes, and insider knowledge on destinations are holding people back from maximizing their travel experiences. Origin removes all those obstacles and makes the end-to-end experience a breeze."
