Founded in 2017, GoHype is a platform allowing you to browse, customise and book fantastic vacations recommended by top travel bloggers.
Our initial idea stemmed from planning our own trip to Los Angeles. We found it incredibly frustrating juggling different mobile apps for travel planning & booking, whilst also trying to find genuine travel recommendations online. In early 2017, we started our Instagram page @gohypetravel, picking out and pricing up the very best destinations from Instagram travel bloggers on a daily basis. Our page quickly grew to 10,000 followers, and this was our initial proof of concept.
After quitting our full-time jobs in summer ’17, we taught ourselves to code, created a demo app and promo video showcasing what GoHype could be, and individually spoke to hundreds of travel bloggers and travel enthusiasts about the concept. 99.7% of those we spoke to said they would use GoHype for travel inspiration and booking, so we began building it.
In August ’17, we acquired partnerships with Booking.com, GetYourGuide and Jetradar, and by March ’18 had successfully launched our private beta for iOS. We’re immensely grateful to all of our travel bloggers and users, as the GoHype app is a result of their feedback.
GoHype is available to download now on the iOS App Store.
We can’t wait to hear about your next adventure!
