What is Snap Travel?
SnapTravel gives you access to great hotel deals over SMS and Facebook Messenger. No app to download. Send a message, book a room. We use a combination of machine learning and natural language processing to surface the best hotel recommendations at the best price. We are enabling commerce via messaging – the most natural environment on mobile.
SnapTravel CEO Hussein Fazal said:
“We are still in the early days of conversational commerce. But the trend is growing. Users want to chat with businesses, conduct commerce, and get things done within messaging apps – where they already spend most of their time.”
