New App Helps Travelers Navigate Complex Border Restrictions
Channeling intrepid explorers of yore, Airheart hopes to clear confusing paths for today’s travelers
May 19, 2021
A new free tool is now available to help travelers navigate the fast-changing world of COVID-19 restrictions and policies as they head across borders. Airheart’s new Explorer tool seeks to help people travel again, safely. Travelers can now discover which destinations are accessible and what’s required for their trip, all through one user-friendly platform.
Navigating restrictions and policies for travel can be overwhelming, even for the most seasoned of travelers. Airheart’s data is aggregated from official sources by data partners, including Sherpa. Then, Airheart further distills and organizes it into a searchable, scannable, easy to understand format, to put travelers at ease when navigating what’s required of them.
1. Discover which destinations – international and domestic – are accessible for travel based on your origin location.
2. View government policies for your destination.
3. Search and filter by what’s required of you – quarantine, COVID19 test, masks in public.
4. See COVID19 transmission and vaccination data per destination.
5. View local guidelines for what to expect on-location.
.6. Pin routes and create a short-list of places for a wishlist.
Receive notifications when policies and restrictions change.
The three founders diligently focused on maximizing the user experience. They are also extremely well-traveled, are multi-passport carriers and currently straddling multiple continents – the US to Australia.
“As seasoned travelers, we found this problem so critical that we dropped everything to work on solving it for the community. Our long-term vision is to create a place for organizing and managing the full lifecycle of a trip, starting with discovery using Airheart Explorer,” said co-founder and CEO, Lindsey Renken. “In a world where we’ve optimized our lives heavily, planning travel is still an inefficient process. We noticed our friends and colleagues experiencing similar issues, and ultimately, this kept a lot of trips from happening. We figured there has to be a better way than the status quo.”
