The chatbot provides travel recommendations in more than 40 languages, and it allows you to ask questions about your favorite destinations on WhatsApp.
“I was a little skeptical about using an AI tool because I travel so often. So I was like ‘I want to put it to the test. I’m going to use it in my hometown of Arlington, Virginia,’” travel content creator Alexa Moore said.
“So I did it an entire day where I just chose. I chose my specific recommendations from where to eat and what to do, and it was really a journey for me because I ended up going to places that I hadn’t been since I was a kid,” she said.
While you can do something similar on the ChatGPT app, developers say there are a few more features available through the tool – including human curators who monitor responses.
“I think it’s extremely helpful. I’m someone who’s particularly indecisive, actually, with travel planning. And because I travel so often, sometimes I do not want to think about a potential itinerary, where to go, where to eat, so having that travel buddy or a travel best friend that can just make those decisions for me,” Moore said.
Developers say the chatbot will be available soon on Instagram.
