About Everyday Agents

Consumer Travel is Ripe for Disruption

Today's travelers are seeking personalized, immersive, and authentic experiences that reflect their unique tastes and interests. They want to be inspired, to feel the thrill of discovery, and to seamlessly benefit from technology throughout their journeys. Yet, the current travel landscape is a maze of disjointed self-serve transactions, often leaving travelers feeling frustrated and unfulfilled. The explosion of travel booking sites is sucking the fun out of getting away, with travelers needing to visit dozens of websites to plan a trip and often needing to resort to time consuming offline strategies. As a result, the joy of travel is often overshadowed by the stress of planning, with travelers spending significantly more time researching a vacation today than just a few years ago.

Our AI-Native Travel Concierge

Introducing Everyday Agents, a stealth startup backed by four top venture funds that is reimagining the way we travel. Everyday Agents is building an AI-powered Travel Concierge (currently in private beta) that simplifies the process of discovering, planning, and booking trips, all in one app. It intuitively understands your preferences, assists in uncovering stays, activities, and dining options, and supports travelers throughout their journey, from exploring potential destinations to accommodating last-minute changes during a trip. It’s like having a personal travel agent, but better, as it’s affordable, available 24/7, responds within seconds, and is armed with local insights, captivating photos, maps, itineraries, pricing, and availability. By harnessing the latest advancements in Large Language Models (LLMs) and pioneering breakthroughs in Agent Architectures, Everyday Agents is poised to revolutionize the travel industry.

Market Opportunity

Contributing over 10% to the global GDP, the travel and tourism sector is on the brink of a significant transformation resulting from fundamental shifts in consumer preferences. Newer generations are prioritizing experiences, particularly travel, over material possessions, and the influence of social media is further fueling this trend by inspiring travelers to seek out unique and personalized experiences. As a result, the online travel market, already a $2.3 trillion industry, is projected to grow by more than 10% per year through 2030. With its focus on crafting exquisite, personalized trips, Everyday Agents is well positioned to capitalize on these trends and transform the way we travel.
