A new travel booking platform, Travelbeta, has gone live, according to various media reports.

The platform is founded by Mr. Onyeka Akumah, an ex-Jumia, Konga and Wakanow executive, Mr. Wale Ayorinde, the company’s CTO with over 13 years of Silicon Valley experience and Mr. David Asuku, who has served in executive positions at firms such as Wakanow and HollowayTravels.

The platform aims to change the offline booking habits of Nigerian and take online booking mainstream based off the fact that Nigeria recorded approximately 15 million travel bookings in the last 12 months.

According to the company, only 300,000 of the 15 million booking were carried out online, a situation the company is intent on changing.

According to a Techmoran report, the company is backed by Amadeus and IATA, and is looking to provide bookings to over 300,000 hotels worldwide as well as flights to over 900 destinations worldwide.

“Our promise to every customer who uses Travelbeta.com is that you will get the best of professionalism from our well-trained team of customer travel consultants who will provide Nigerians with all the information they need about booking smarter when they travel while making available unbeatable travel fares especially in this season.” said Mr. Onyeka Akuma.
