Comtravo - Business travel made simple

We are a team of travel experts, tech enthusiasts and customer support heroes – with the shared purpose to simplify business travel. Comtravo provides small and medium-sized companies a truly unique solution. Travelers or travel managers can book and manage their business trips with one simple text message. Using state-of-the-art technologies, such as NLP and machine learning techniques, we are automating our fulfilment pipeline. This enables our in-house travel experts to focus on complex requests and the individual needs of our clients.

Our tech stack:

The frontend is built in Angular / Typescript. We have two major applications - one for our customers and one for our back-office team of travel agents.
Both applications interact with our in-house-built booking engine and e.g. allow booking of flight tickets, management of bookings, reporting, etc.
We invest heavily in shared components, libraries, automated tests, monitoring and sane interfaces. Together with a strong CI/CD pipeline, we are able to release many times per day to production.
