Path exits Stealth to launch new social travel app | News


LOS ANGELES, March 22, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Path, a social travel startup, emerged from stealth today to unveil its new travel app which offers an immersive way to map and discover new places – restaurants, hotels and other destinations. Path was co-founded in 2020 by Spencer RascoffEthan Gromet, and Michel Rebelle and incubated at 75 & Sunny LaboratoriesRascoff’s start-up studio.

“We’ve all had the experience of thoroughly researching a restaurant on popular review websites, but were disappointed when we went there because the written reviews and photos couldn’t accurately convey the experience,” said Ethan Gromet, CEO of Path. “Path combines the power of short, relevant video content with the map experience everyone expects from today’s best travel apps to create an engaging new way to experience the world.”

Path offers information from local experts around the world who select the best places in different cities and make them visible just by opening the app. Each POI displays multiple videos as a story, which can be viewed as a list or on a map. In addition to providing video content and discovering places, Path allows travelers to save places to lists on their profile, organize and share their favorite places, follow friends and creators, and even upload their own videos.

Gromet added, “Video establishes a level of trust that is not possible with written reviews. When we watch a video of the ambiance of a place or the delicious food of a restaurant, we can immediately imagine having an experience there. But more importantly, we can build trust in the reviewer by better understanding their personality, reliability and credibility.”

“I’ve been working on the problem of travel discovery, social ratings and reviews since co-founding Hotwire in 1999, and later at Expedia and Tripadvisor,” said Spencer Rascoff, co-founder and chairman of the board of directors of Path. “Path is like TikTok for travel and makes discovering new places a delightful, social, and seamless experience.”
