Leaders in student, youth and adventure travel, STA Travel today launches 'STAnder' - an online dating platform and mobile app for travelers. Capitalising on the current popularity for online dating apps, and following the successful launch of the STA Travel mobile travel app in December 2014, STA Travel has firmly "come out" onto the online backpacker dating scene! The new STAnder app will allow single STA Travellers from all over the world to view the profiles of other vetted travelers, safely meet up with fellow backpackers abroad, and see where their 'matches' are and what trips they're doing. In addition, STA Travel will block out discounted spaces on scheduled flights, hop-on hop-off buses and adventure trips - solely for single STAnder travellers. STAnder is free to download, only available to STA Travel customers and all STAnder members are fully vetted. It's also safe - matches only happen when both parties swipe 'like,' and no contact information is exchanged outside of the app. Customer Relations Director Una Niteonly says, "We've been flirting with the idea of an online dating platform for our travelers for some time and we're overjoyed to launch STAnder onto the global backpacking dating scene! With over 400 STA Travel stores in 85 countries, our customers come from all over the world, with many of them using online dating apps in their home country already. We all know couples that have been lucky enough to have met their partners when travelling, and STAnder is just another way to help single travelers safely meet up other like-minded travellers!"
