THERE’S NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO INVEST IN YOUTH TRAVEL
The numbers here tell the full story. Pre-pandemic the world was seeing 370 million annual youth travellers. They were spending on average €2,876 on their main trip, 1,035€ on subsequent travels. They stay 50 nights longer than the average traveller, and have an insatiable appetite for experiences. Post-pandemic youth travel will bounce back where other demographics flounder, but yet there’s no specific platform that really addresses their needs. Enter, us.
WHY INVEST IN STOKE APP?
#ONE: NOW IS THE TIME
Bricks and mortar travel agents didn’t keep up with the times and are failing. The pre-existing travel aggregators don’t inspire the youth, and users have to sift through uninspiring travel options to dig out the experiences they crave. When travel bounces back, we’ll be ready to give young travellers what they need.
#TWO: CHANGE THE TRAVEL LANDSCAPE
With the demise of high-street we’re seeing stuffy, established tour operators flounder – and so they should! Herd on, herd off, multi city itineraries don’t appeal to a tech-savvy increasingly independent youth travel market. But young travellers are still crying out to be guided towards the experiences they know they want, and some they haven’t yet heard of. That’s where we come in.
#THREE: SURVIVE AND PROSPER
Where other travel companies have shuttered or retreated into their shells, the team behind the Stoke App has been plotting and planning how to bounce back stronger than ever. This is our play, and we’re certain of it. Returning youth travellers are going to find a void, and we’re going to fill it.
