This very content aids others to decide where to go, with 86 percent of prospective travellers showing interest in a location after seeing user-generated content about it.

Ashish Sidhra, Co-Founder of Alike.io stated: “However, no platform rewards content creators for the bookings they influence, leaving the content creators to compete for a finite number of brand sponsorship deals. With the launch of Alike we have made an ambitious commitment to correct this wrong by making tens of thousands of vetted and bookable travel experiences available to the content creators, and giving them a share of the booked experiences revenue.”

Building upon their Dubai roots, Alike.io also added that they are proud to collaborate with Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) to have Dubai as the Founding Partner City on the Alike platform. “As a company born in Dubai, what makes this special occasion even more cherished for us is to have Dubai as our Founding City Partner,” adds Ashish. “We are excited to welcome DET as early adopters of our platform and looking forward to working with them to share amazing Dubai stories on Alike.io.”

Yousuf Lootah, Executive Director – Tourism Development & Investments, Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism, commented: “Dubai continues to build upon its status as the city of choice for international entrepreneurs to establish and grow their innovative start-ups. Alike.io perfectly exemplifies this as a start-up initiated and nurtured in Dubai, now launching a truly novel travel tech product for the global market that is in line with the goal of our visionary leadership to position Dubai as a global technology, trade, and tourism hub and also the best city in the world to live in and work. This concept is also the type of entrepreneurial creativity and dynamism that we encourage through our Intelak Hub, the region’s only start-up platform dedicated to the travel, tourism, and aviation sectors. We wish the Alike.io team every success with this innovative initiative.”

Alike.io added that they will endure disclosing innovative features in the coming months and will launch across multiple global cities in phases. The initial phase will focus on launching in cities in Europe and the Middle East, building upon kitmytrip’s existing presence there. Later this summer, Alike.io aims to enhance its presence in key markets of India and Far East Asia.
