Ingle International is thrilled to announce that one of our core products, Travel Navigator, has won a Global Youth Travel Award in the Best Travel Technology Product category.
Hosted by the World Youth Student and Educational (WYSE) Travel Confederation as part of its annual conference, these prestigious awards honour the top performers across the international youth travel industry. The WYSE Travel Confederation, whose members number over 600 industry leaders from 120 countries around the globe, is the world’s most extensive network of youth and student travel professionals—making the Global Youth Travel Awards a true recognition of top talent in this field.
We’re honoured to receive this award, beating out fierce competition from some of the most innovative travel-tech companies out there. But when it comes to “technology and youth [going] together like hostel and backpack,” we can’t help but feel that Travel Navigator fits the bill. Here’s why:
- It never leaves a student’s side—or smartphone. The Duty of Care solution provides real-time alerts, geo-tracking, integrated emergency phone numbers, health care provider mapping, and more—giving students in an emergency situation access to everything they need on their phone.
- It works even when the internet doesn’t. With incidents of terrorism and natural disasters seemingly on the rise, parents and teachers need a way to seamlessly communicate with students when a lack of internet connectivity might result in unnecessary, and possibly prolonged, worry.
- Teachers give it an A+. Schools can bundle their existing travel insurance with the platform, providing an all-in-one solution for safety while students are travelling abroad.
