Driven by consumer desires for new experiences, innovative technologies and environmental impacts – travel is changing. Host Sarah Dandashy explores the technologies and logistics that power travel and the brands that build unforgettable experiences.
With the pandemic putting a lid on traveling over the past year, it’s no wonder that consumers are ready to hit the road and the open sky. So, what are some of the things travelers should expect as they head back out into the world?
On this episode of Say Yes To Travel, Host Sarah Dandashy talked to Konrad Waliszewski, Founder & CEO of, TripScout about traveling after the pandemic and the pent-up demand for travelers. They also dug into vaccine passports and the first post-covid trip.
“I wanted to create a company, TripScout, to lead the way for the next generation of modern travelers.” -Konrad Waliszewski
Waliszewski made his name as a travel blogger and early YouTube travel influencer. It’s something he’s passionate about, having traveled to over 100 countries. Entrepreneurship has also been his calling. He noticed changes and trends in the way people traveled, and he started combining his skillset of travel and entrepreneurship. TripScout filled a gap in the market.
“Every product and service you use hasn’t changed in the past 20 years since the internet came around,” Waliszewski said. “So, I wanted to create a company, TripScout, to lead the way for the next generation of modern travelers.”
TripScout is the number one ranked trip planning app in the app store. They index all the world’s travel content from local bloggers and top publishers. Then their technology extracts every point of interest and every recommendation made by those pieces of content. Then, they curate a feed for each traveler.
If you’ve traveled before, you most likely had to have vaccines, so the COVID-19 Passport isn’t that different from other things, such as Yellow Fever Passport. Waliszewski thinks it’s a bit exaggerated, and proving you have had a vaccine isn’t a big deal. He also thinks we’re on the cusp of the biggest travel boom ever.
