Travello already caters for a range of travelling demographics in the app, including Travel bloggers, Solo-Travellers and Female Travellers, however, we now also cater to a huge sector of the travel market – the LGBTQ+ community.

So we are extremely proud to launch the new “Gaycation” group on Travello, a specific group for LGBTQ+ travellers, something that has actually been a much-requested group from many of our users.

This is going to allow those in the LGBTQ+ community to connect with other like-minded travellers without the dating expectations of other apps that they might be using on their travels. As many just want to meet new friends and share their travel adventures with someone new.

The group will allow the LGBTQ+ community to find others in the group that are nearby, or those in the destinations for which they have added a trip in Travello. Along with being able to post specifically to the group’s feed instead of the wider Travello feed, the group members can of course also follow other group members and also message them directly too.
