weVagari (formerly Trippin)
weVagari connects tourists with a virtual local buddy to help them travel safely and smoothly which is an All-in-one platform where you can plan your trip and find a local buddy to customize your trip itinerary
Safety is a big concern for the female traveler and it is found that 73% of them worry about safety while traveling solo, and this figure comes down to 64% if they have traveled solo more than 10 times. Even the travel industry keeps promoting the lucrative packages and the beauty of the place without addressing the safety concerns for the females traveling to a particular country. Moreover, cultural stereotypes and discrimination can be dangerous not only for female travelers but people of color (POC) and gender-diverse communities.
Who is it for
So far, we interviewed over 80 female solo travelers, POC, and gender diverse groups from 23 different countries to validate the problem and we iterated our solution accordingly to ensure that our platform is beneficial for them to travel safely.
Discovery from interviews
83% worry about travel safety
76% have experienced violent harassment
Our solution is WeVagari, a virtual travel platform for females, POC, and gender diverse people. The word Vagari comes from Latin, meaning "to wander". WeVagari means- we wander around the world with freedom.
Our mission is to make the world safer and accessible for everyone so a traveler can roam around without worrying
about safety, discrimination, or cultural differences. We aim to help travelers by connecting them virtually with what we call "Buddy", who is a local person that knows the vicinity and can be trusted to help travelers and provide a safe environment.
