Vancouver, British Columbia: Hello Pal International Inc. (“Hello Pal” or the “Company”) provider of rapidly growing international social messaging, travel and language learning mobile apps is pleased to announce the successful launch of its first companion app “Travel Pal”.
Travel Pal is the Company’s second major app release and targets the travel sector by encouraging ‘social traveling’ among its users, where traveling can become much more social through the interaction with locals as well as with other travelers going to the same destination. Hello Pal considers itself a pioneer in the travel app space following successful travel disruption startups such as Airbnb.
Travel Pal enables this by making it easy for travelers to find locals who are open to helping fellow travelers by being a guide, meeting up, offering a place to stay, or simply giving advice. It also allows people who are unable to travel to easily meet foreign people by simply acting as hosts to welcome travelers to their hometown.
A natural extension of Hello Pal, Travel Pal includes all the chat functions from Hello Pal and helps to further the Company’s mission of bringing the world closer together. While Hello Pal breaks the ice by helping people from different cultures and countries converse online, Travel Pal aims to reduce the barriers to travel so that people can also meet face-to-face.
“Our hope is that traveling becomes not just about sightseeing, but also about getting to know people from other countries better,” said KL Wong, Founder of Hello Pal. “If that becomes the trend, then what we should see is more cultural exchange between people, and an increased mutual understanding between them.”
The company is also continuing to develop a multi-faceted monetization strategy. Hello Pal offers many forms of potential monetization such as VIP membership and advertising. With the successful launch of Travel Pal the Company sees increased opportunities for monetization such as travel-industry related sponsorships and revenue sharing.
