LatitudeN and MAIRDUMONT partner on the development of smart mobile travel solutions

LatitudeN and MAIRDUMONT today announced the establishment of a partnership to integrate high-quality touristic information into the smart travel solutions to be developed by the technology company LatitudeN GmbH. The innovative mobile travel, Farol City Guides, marks the beginning of this collaboration.

Online PR News – 29-January-2012 – – Farol City Guides is the brand name of an outstanding mobile travel guide app focused on the specific needs of short city-break tourists, lacking time to prepare their trips and to absorb the most a city can offer to them for short periods of time.

Its unique features makes this app the perfect travel “buddy” for business travellers with still some hours left after a meeting for sightseeing, or to independent tourists using low-cost airline carriers for a weekend-city-break trip. This intelligent app not only generates fully personalised tours, but also adapts real-time to the user’s profile. Therefore, and unlike any other travel app currently on the market, Farol City Guides optimises time spent on a city, absorbing the most relevant sightseeing information that matches the traveller’s real preferences.

The today announced agreement is part of the company’s mission to partner with the most relevant players in the tourism sector, offering its clients with the highest-standard solutions. MAIRDUMONT, while a world leading publisher in tourism, was elected by LatitudeN to be its main provider for content. The decision took into consideration the recognition of the long experience of MAIRDUMONT within the travel and leisure media market, namely with its world known printed travel guidebooks “Marco Polo” or “Dumont”.

The official launch of Farol City Guides is set for January 2012 in the cities of Brussels and London, covering other major European cities throughout this year. Available in English language on the Android market for now, the travel app will be soon available for iPhone and in other languages.
