About Cool Cousin

Crowned as an up-and-coming travel service by New York Times, Guardian, USA Today, National Geographic and TechCrunch, Cool Cousin enjoys monthly double-digit growth and is well positioned to become a major player in the $2.3 trillion travel industry.
Information overload and biased online content in the centralized travel market, makes it impossible for travelers to find relevant info. No matter how hard they try to avoid dubious online recommendations, much of their precious vacation time (and dime) is wasted on mediocre places that don’t fit their vibe.
Cool Cousin is the antidote to this growing frustration. Using our friendly app, travelers get on-demand city guidance that matches their style and needs, directly from like-minded locals.
Once they’ve connected with a Cousin, travelers can directly reach out to them for personalized city guidance. Every month, thousands of travelers contact our Cousins for advice on timing their visit, where they should stay, tickets for special occasions, current events, customized itineraries and more.
Cousins are a refined version of the travel agent, optimized for Millenials and Gen Z.
