// THE ORIGIN OF TRAVLR & THE TEAM
TRAVLR was created based on a belief that travellers should be able to effortlessly connect with other travellers and tourism operators in a way that enables and enhances the travel experience through every stage of travel.
Created by Australian couple and cofounding duo Simon and Lani te Hennepe, TRAVLR is a incredible home-grown story focussed on understanding and serving the needs of travellers worldwide.
“We wanted to create the ultimate travel platform. One that truly connects people and unlocks the best travel experiences whether you’re a first-timer or a seasoned traveller, whether you’re a solo adventurer or a family travelling together.” - Simon te Hennepe
In 2009, Simon & Lani began their journey towards creating TRAVLR when they created The Bali Bible. As a seasoned traveller to Bali, Lani was often called upon to advise friends and family around the best experiences they could have on a trip to Bali. Lani’s list of recommendations quickly became sought after in the couple’s wider network. Seizing the opportunity, and leveraging Simon’s experience running web development company Hypd, the couple decided a simpler way to share these recommendations was to build a website and Facebook page they could share with friends.
Overnight The Bali Bible facebook page grew from 2 followers to over 1,000. The Bali Bible currently outperforms even travel giant Trip Advisor for social engagement on instagram, serving travellers and businesses in one destination only.
The Bali Bible has developed into a significant operation with over 60 employees and provides a solid model in which to advance the platform even further.
The co-founders quickly identified a more significant gap in the market and opportunity to deliver a better experience for both travellers and tourism businesses, globally.
This is TRAVLR.
