Jack and Ferdi, the first mobile app for bleisure travelers (a trip that combines business and leisure) is now available for download on iOS devices. The app provides business travelers with vetted suggestions on what to see, where to eat, and what to bring back home from more than 60 different global destinations. All suggestions are tailored to the user and curated by a team of City Ambassadors who possess in-depth knowledge of their area.
Business travelers can also use Jack and Ferdi to learn local business customs, discover inspiring, unique work and meeting spaces, listen to locally inspired playlists, access a curated list of local charities to support and find the best running routes.
“Jack and Ferdi provides business travelers the opportunity to seize the full potential of their trips by offering geolocalized, AI-generated and curator-vetted suggestions that are unbiased, suited to travelers’ profiles and time constraints, and most importantly, offer truly authentic and quintessential experiences,” said Anne-Fleur Andrle, co-founder and CEO of Jack and Ferdi.
Jack and Ferdi is the brainchild of entrepreneurs Anne-Fleur Andrle and Romain Aubanel who — after years of seemingly unending and exhausting business travel — were inspired to create an app that would help business travelers maximize their limited free time.
“The Jack and Ferdi team is committed to helping turn potentially long, exhausting business trips into memorable, enjoyable experiences,” Andrle explains. “Having traveled more than 80,000 miles for one job in just two years, I know the toll that business travel without balance can have. I never had the time or energy to research what I should see or do in my limited downtime, nevermind think about extending my trips for leisure. Jack and Ferdi is the app I wish I’d had while traveling for work. It does the research for you.”
