It has been a busy few months for the team at Vado, who have been progressing a number of big developments for our business and our travel inspiration app that we’re excited to now share with you…

The next phase

For those of you who signed up to test version one of our beta app, we can’t thank you enough for your feedback and we have been working hard to implement your suggestions. As a result, we are pleased to announce the latest update is now available for you to download. Thanks to your support, this will be the final version of the beta prior to launch!

Until then, we wanted to make the latest prototype available to you so that you can continue exploring the functionality, seeking travel inspiration and making memories. Please do check it out — and if you like what you see, it is now possible to invite 10 friends through the app to join you.

Of course, if you do have any further thoughts, you can alert us at Just keep in mind that the beta’s purpose is to showcase the concept and is not the final product in terms of design and performance. Your feedback will always be of great importance to us as we continue the Vado journey together — and you will be amongst the first to see the end result in February 2020.

For anyone who has misplaced, or not yet received, their access code, just let us know. Or, new to Vado? Then please register your interest on our website and we will alert you to the launch early next year — more details coming up next!

New features

Vado is a travel app to help users get inspired, inspire others and remember everywhere. Prior to launch next year, we have been busy building even more functionality for you to enjoy. In addition to following other users, Vado will also incorporate a ‘Friend’ function for collaborating in groups, privately — to document joint photos and memories, create itineraries together, or share lists of top activities for an upcoming adventure.

In addition, the next version of Vado will introduce business profiles, paving the way for direct access to travel companies, too — your hotel concierge service, for example, could provide you with a list of nearby attractions, restaurants or shopping districts directly to your mobile phone. And that’s just the beginning… you’ll need to stay tuned for more!

Business growth

Joining us on our journey are eight new international investors of Vado, who we are delighted to have onboard in our drive to provide lovers of travel with a completely unique online experience for finding and sharing inspiration, planning and documenting that next amazing trip, and liaising directly with travel companies for information and bookings at their fingertips.

Investment will be used to grow the team and scale the platform for the next phase of Vado’s mission, focused on helping travellers gain access — and contribute — to the authentic and varied insight they need for the travel experiences they really want!
