Company Summary

En route from Istanbul to Kathmandu, Erika and Reid Pierce had the vision for TravelBuggy - the app and website for culturally-minded family travelers. The problem today is that family travel is equated with Disney World-type holidays but this ignores a growing segment of savvy family travelers. The app locates child friendly restaurants, playgrounds, hotels, museums, etc. The site will allow users to connect with friends and fellow travelers.
