When founder Anastassia and her husband started planning their first travels , they started the way these projects often do: with a daunting list of open tabs with web pages, a stack of travel guides and recommendations from their friends. But after spending days searching, collecting information, organizing spreadsheets and flagging emails with bookings, they felt frustrated and overwhelmed with the amount of information that they were presented with. It was hard to figure out who to believe online and and which tips to use. There had to be a better way!
And so, on a flight from Vancouver to Toronto, an idea formed, to build a place for her friends and family to plan and organize trips, to preserve those plans for her family and friends, to easily access plan details during the trip, a place where one can share those trips, a place to connect with like minded travellers.
And as the idea matured, Anastassia realized that she would like to delegate some of the planning to travel professional or even enthusiast local to her destination, to craft that authentic experience, but still cater to her needs and expectations. So why not build a place, a marketplace, to connect travellers with travel experts around the world.
A few months later, Itinza Inc was formed to bring those ideas to life.
To be a globally recognized and trusted platform that connects travellers and travel experts to facilitate travel planning, and to provide new income opportunities to local travel experts around the world.
