Once again we've been heads down in designing and building in full speed and we thought we were long due an update - both on what's new and coming soon on the product, and what else is happening behind the scenes at Travis HQ.
Through user feedback, the two key priorities that emerged across all users were 1) to improve how you curate recommended places on your travel Moodboards, and 2) to better connect and interact with other travellers like you. So we've been working on lots of exciting new features, rolling out soon on your Travis account.
One of the most exciting features we are working on to help you connect with people who love what you love. Start following themes, share your recommended places, connect and ask like-minded travellers. Find out more soon.
Directly paste a link into your moodboard and have it mapped. These will be searchable in the future.
Completely redesigned profile page to better represent you as a traveler.
Unlock new badges when you follow themes you love, or share Stories and Moodboards with the community.
Your curated Moodboards are now discoverable from your new Profile. Why hide awesome recommendations?

Product aside, we've been working on a few new things to help make it easier for our beta community to connect, and to work with inspiring travel content creators from Australia and beyond.
Last we checked, Travis is now helping travellers in 71 different cities and counting!
If you're a content creator and you love travel, join our growing network from around the world who want to be a voice for diversity in travel. Find out more and apply to be part of the Travis Creator Circle!
Making it easier for our travel and tourism brand partners to find, work and manage collaborations with creators. Officially in development, trial launching soon in Australia and New Zealand. If you're a brand, tell us more about your content and campaign needs to see if we might be a fit!
We love hearing your feedback and learning more about you as travellers via DMs and emails, but we think our beta community is going to benefit more when we have more people in the same place! If you're a beta user, look out for an invite to the Facebook community via email.
We were up against 47 other companies, including Stripe on the day - but managed to squeeze into Top 8 Product of the Day, with nearly 1000 of you joining our waitlist. We are so thankful for all your support. Travis is still improving daily, if you have any questions, please feel free to shoot through an email - firstname.lastname@example.org!
