The project in more detail

The challenge

Our client wanted an app that would allow individual sports team members to easily view their personalised travel itinerary including any flights, hotels and car hire booked with Travel Places.

How we solved the problem

The app has been built in React Native. This allows us to target all of the main operating systems, including , Android, iOS and Windows, without exponentially increasing the cost. The app also has a companion site that allows Travel Places staff to manage and invite new users of the app. This custom backend was built using Django and our popular open source project Django REST framework to build the API endpoints we required.

The outcome

The app gives Travel Places a direct link to their end customers and saves time for team managers who no longer need to manually give out individual itineraries to their team members.

This has been a very successful and long-term partnership with our client and we continue to develop the Travel Places app, adding new features as their business needs evolves.

We manage the travel logistics for participants in world events, such as Formula 1, the America's Cup, World Cup Football, Commonwealth Games, so this app now allows each team member to access their own personalised real-time itinerary for everything, from flights to car rental, hotel bookings to transfers - any time, anywhere.
