What is Savvi?
Savvi is a community for modern travelers exploring new and emerging destinations. It's an app that bridges the gap between authentic local communities and curious, responsible travelers, promoting a new wave of community-based tourism (CBT). Whether you're off the beaten path or on the main drag, Savvi helps you make smarter, better real-time travel decisions about what to do, and how to make the best of your trip, wherever you are.
Served with a side of social impact
The Savvi community is a web of world-travelers venturing into parts-unknown to discover the hidden gems around them, the ones that don't have a website, and the ones that are most likely to give you that special, Savvi feeling.
It is one of Savvi's goals as a social enterprise to provide ground support for local, under-represented businesswomen and men operating in economies of developing tourism. Those businesses that don't have the means or the technological bandwidth to broadcast their services on the world wide web, no matter how awesome (or sustainable) they may be. For them, there is an app, and that app is Savvi!
As you read, the Savvi app is being overhauled and team Savvi is hard at work perfecting a real-time, online marketplace for discovering and booking awesome local experiences, right from your smartphone. To do this, we are partnering with existing local tour providers to bring their epic experiences directly to you, the modern, Savvi traveler! Stay tuned for the fresh app and even fresher Savvi Experiences.
Savvi is a small startup based on a big idea: Travel. We are focused on unique destinations and off-the-beaten-path experiences – those that are quickly becoming the norm for modern-day, savvy travelers. We’re proponents of sustainable, responsible tourism and, of course, getting the most bang for your buck! Next stop: Vietnam. Sound cool? Drop us a line and join us on our quest for Savvi!
