Awarded App Store ‘Best of the Year’ by Apple, LuckyTrip finds you a personalised trip in one tap, powered by AI. After a successful UK launch on iOS, the business is preparing to scale multi-platform & Europe-wide. Backed by leading investors (easyJet & Brent Hoberman through Founders Factory).
Brothers Tiff and Alex launched LuckyTrip 3 years ago, with a mission to become the leading travel brand for the millennial generation. They wanted to create a way to find and book trips to the hidden corners of the world, all in a tap.
LuckyTrip aims to make booking your perfect holiday as easy as booking an Uber. Just set your budget and preferences, tap the Lucky button and instantly see a personalised trip to an amazing destination with the cheapest flights, handpicked accommodations, and unique experiences.
Millennials are the driving force behind the $2.3tn travel industry and spend more on travel than any other generation. They expect unique instagrammable experiences, a mobile-first platform, and instant gratification - exactly what LuckyTrip offers. It’s expected that by 2021, over half of all travel bookings will be on mobile.
LuckyTrip recently secured a long term commercial contract with easyJet for a significant fee, bringing the LuckyTrip experience to millions of easyJet customers. The team has just started working with British Airways, Avios, Iberia, Vueling and others, through IAG’s accelerator program Hangar 51.
With a new ATOL license and instant payment technology, LuckyTrip bookings have grown by 237% YoY to £53k in April 2019 (12-month P&L -£287k). Additional £11k+ average monthly partnership revenue.
