June 1, 2017 – For immediate Release
Travelling today can be stressful and complicated. Beforeifly.com can eliminate the stresses associated with travel, by securely compiling flight information, passport information, check-in, embassy contacts and more!
All your travel information is made available to you through your own Beforeifly account, and app (available free on Apple and Android) and accessible from any computer, phone, tablet or laptop.
Beforeifly provides entry and exit rules and regulations to all Canadian and American Passport holders for their destination country. Rules vary widely depending on which country you are going through or to, and Beforeifly will provide you with cultural, health and security information to assist you prior and during your travels.
In addition, “Beforeifly.com offers daily weather reports for the world’s destinations and currency exchange rates worldwide so that you don’t get ripped off,” says George Zissopoulos, CEO “But the greatest feature is that we store your passport number and frequent flyer numbers in our secure site and app.”
This service can be essential if a passport is lost: “Beforeifly.com will give you the number, which is vital for getting a quick replacement at a Canadian embassy,” he says. “If you don’t have this number, it can take days to get a replacement when you are away from home. We also send you an email alert whenever your passport is within six months’ of expiring, to give you time to renew it before you need to do so.”
The app will even alert you to changes to your gates and delays to your flights.”
The service is free. Travellers simply go to the website, sign up for a free account, purchase their flight or vacation package and enter their information once, and they are good to go. Once you purchase, all the information is automatically sent to your Beforeifly account which is accessible on the app as well. You will instantly receive an email with all the entry requirements for your specified destination.
Zissopoulos has over 25 years in the travel business and came up with the idea of the app with all the questions his own personal clients have inquired about over the years.
Beforeifly.com helps ensure travellers don’t miss out on other benefits, such as frequent-flyer points. “If you don’t present your frequent flyer card and don’t know your number, you can miss out on accumulating points that can be redeemed for free travel later. With our Beforeifly.com app on your phone, the number is right there when you need it. You will never miss out again.”
Maria Mavridis, Operating partner and marketing manager adds, “The fact that everything is automatically done for you, is the ultimate plus with Beforeifly” Mavridis has been working the past year on perfecting the purchasing portion of the site, wanting it to flow and be as easy as possible for every type of purchaser. “George had this amazing app he developed and when we started discussing it, realized, why not take it one step further with the website!”
Beforeifly will launch their new flight search site in early June, and add Dynamic Packaging which will include Hotel, Car rental, and Cruise Mid Summer 2017. All major vacation suppliers can be purchased through Beforeifly as well including Air Canada Vacations™, Westjet™ Vacations, Sunwing™ and Sandals™.
Beforeifly has partnered with the Toronto International Film Festival™ as a Sponsor this year, and will be on festival street in Toronto with what Mavridis describes as “A really cool virtual 360 photo booth that can place you anywhere in the world!” She adds, “TIFF™ is a great opportunity to introduce Beforeifly to the world.” Their slogan for the festival? “Film is about telling the story, Travel is about creating the story”
“We are 100% Canadian owned and operated with not just an online platform, but live local agents as well.”
Whether you are on business or pleasure, travelling shouldn’t be a headache. “We can’t do anything about the small seats or meals, but Beforeifly.com can make every other part of your travel experience much more pleasant.”
