About Travelisto: A Philosophy of Travel

Why we exist as a company

A word from the founder

Travelling is in our DNA – during 99% of human history, we have been nomads. Travelling breaks through the imaginary barriers we often put up ourselves. However, organising the perfect trip is still a challenge because there are real logistical barriers to deal with and the wealth of information readily available is often not reliable.

 

I have travelled for over 20 years and currently I spend a lot of my time travelling while working full time as a Travel Designer. I draw my inspiration from the destinations we bring to you – Paris to New York, from Ho Chi Minh City to Rio de Janeiro. This keeps my knowledge fresh and up to date.

 

My team and I work full time around different time zones, overlapping and covering most of each day, which gives us flexibility to attend your enquiries around the clock with dedication; no call centers, no queues, you can even Whatsapp or text me directly – impossible to beat that personalised on-demand attention. My entire team at Travelisto and I believe and practice this ethos – that’s how we are truly different.

 

My favourite quote that I keep in mind when browsing the Internet these days:

“Information is not knowledge. The only source of knowledge is experience.”

ALBERT EINSTEIN.

We are on-the-go Travel Designers – some times we work from home and sometimes remotely from the actual destinations we promote. Our expertise is always up to date and we are a happy bunch of ‘travelling’ Travel Designers.

 

“LISTO” means ‘ready’ and ‘smart’ in Spanish. That is the meaning of Travelisto: always travel-ready and always smart when travelling.
