Rutherford, New Jersey, 2022-Sep-14 — /Travel PR News/ — Northstar Travel Group has announced today (Sept 13, 2022) the unveiling of a new travel smartphone app with the technology and expertise of Itoorer, a developer of global technology solutions for travel connectivity. The Mobeo travel app allows the traveler to stay connected with enabled internet data access, free international calls, secure Wi-Fi hotspot sharing, city guides, relevant points of interest, and many more features in one convenient travel app.
As well as enabling connectivity and area information, the app is also infused with content from travel42, the travel industry’s trusted source for destination content. This dynamic content feed from travel42 provides more than 40,000 points of interest and 6,000 destinations to the app.
Mobeo’s app service can serve as an excellent revenue generator for the travel advisor, as it enables the advisor to earn a commission on any data service that a client purchases.
The advantage of the app is that it harnesses the power of the latest eSIM technology found in newer smartphones. Travelers with eSIM-enabled phones will no longer be limited to unreliable international data plans and connectivity performance, nor will they need to swap SIM cards to access local area data service. Instead, they can enable their phones to have two carrier services on one device. Travelers can avoid data roaming costs by purchasing Mobeo’s daily data plans at a fixed price.
“In a time when it is critical for travelers to stay connected anywhere in the world, we anticipate the traveler’s preference for having a consistent connectivity solution using their devices,” explains Sheila Rice, Northstar Travel Group SVP of Information Products. “The app can provide data access along with relevant destination information, which is valuable for the traveler, while also providing a revenue stream for dedicated travel advisors. This is a compelling solution for those looking to offer a value-add to their travel services.”
“Our focus was to apply our travel technology expertise to make Mobeo the stellar connectivity solution for travel clients while providing an excellent commission-based add-on solution for travel professionals,” said Nuno Pinho, CEO and Executive Director of Itoorer, “We will continue to build compelling feature sets for our solutions and will soon include the Intelliguide critical duty of care safety and security travel information inside the app.”
