LUQL’s Next Steps

Dear LUQL community,
Thank you all for being loyal dedicated supporters and evangelists of the LUQL community. The wild idea of pairing locals to curious travellers would have never gotten off the ground without your help. Together, we were able to successfully complete hundreds of exciting tours around North America – and that’s pretty awesome.

Whether if you are a guide or a traveller on our platform, we are grateful for you to have taken a chance on us and joined us along our startup journey. Whether it was in the local coffee shop meetups or on the phone, it was inspiring for the LUQL team to have met many of you.

Today, we are announcing that we will be winding down our operations and closing this chapter. We hope to answer as many questions as possible so keep updated on our Medium site for our formal announcement and feel free to email us directly.

LUQL’s Next Steps

We are finding LUQL’s technology a new home. While we are winding down, we are in talks with other companies to acquire LUQL’s mobile and web (in beta) platform. The LUQL team has built an incredible and robust peer-to-peer network over the past year and we are looking forward to handing it over to a new business to fully utilize and scale with.

LUQL will no longer be available to download on the Apple Appstore. We are no longer going to be supporting or updating the iOS app but it will continue to work as normal. We suggest that after all your booked tours have been completed to uninstall LUQL on your phone.
Keep updated on what we are doing on our social media pages. We will do our best to keep everyone in the loop while we are transitioning. In the meantime, feel free to check our Instagram and Facebook feeds to reminisce and celebrate the awesome time we've had together.

It is no doubt a tough decision to shut down the company. We will miss all our amazing local guides and their witty jokes. We will miss all our travellers, adventurers and enthusiasts who made this all possible. We love our LUQL community and we are excited for what the future holds.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and sticking with us through it all. We promise we will never stop being curious about inventing the future.

Until next time!

The LUQL Team
