Small but Mighty Tech Travel Tool Born Out of Necessity

Small but Mighty Tech Travel Tool Born Out of Necessity

Peanut provides essential information to travelers before they book flights.

It was the height of Covid and travel was brought to a standstill. Remote work became the new normal, along with uncertainty and anxiety.

Post-covid many expected, or rather hoped, life would return to what it once was. But the world had experienced a period of extreme, forced adaptation, and the truth was, nothing would be the same again.

Confounding matters, the ability to move freely around the world became more precarious. Despite the vast amounts of information available a tour fingertips, it wasn’t easy to discover where we could go, how we could get there, or whether would even be allowed in!

A group of big tech alums, who frequently traveled for both business and leisure, were tired of digging through pages of information on the internet for updated answers to these questions. So, they did what tech folks do – they created a tech solution. They called it Peanut.

Peanut is a free Google Chrome extension that, once installed on a Chrome browser, provides essential travel information when searching travel sites. Peanut aggregates data from thousands of sites to provide the most accurate and updated travel information, including the following:

  • Health  risk intelligence, including Covid-19 requirements
  • Weather guidance with historical weather trends and ideal months to visit a destination
  • Entry requirements for Visa rules and all points-of-entry
  • Hotel history and their past renovations
  • Flight delay risk that predicts delays and cancellations before a ticket is purchased
  • Countries that require visitors to have insurance

For example, in searching Google Flights for a flight to Amsterdam, this pops up from Peanut:

The instant information is a huge time saver for travelers and lowers the risk of making costly travel mistakes.

Download Peanut and see for yourself how it makes travel planning smarter, safer, and faster. You’ve got nothing to lose – only vast amounts of frustration.
