Who we are

TravelTime are a VC-backed B2B technology company and creators of the TravelTime API which allows users to search and analyse location data by travel time, instead of distance The breadth of use cases for TravelTime is enormous, but they can roughly be broken down into two categories:

  • SEARCH – these clients use TravelTime to sort and rank results by travel time when a user searches on their website (think property sites, job sites, hotel booking sites, dating apps etc). We are fundamentally changing how location search works, and already having a massive impact on our clients’ conversions.
  • ANALYTICS – these clients use TravelTime to beef up the capabilities of their internal analytics and business intelligence teams (think access to public services, office relocations, sales territories, and much more). Up to 80% of business intelligence data has a geographic element, and we help our clients make better decisions with this data.

You can see our technology at work in our demo app here, or on a live client site here.

We have 35 employees in the UK, Lithuania, Netherlands and Poland and we process over a billion requests per month for over 100 clients globally. We recently raised over £3 million in investment and now we’re looking to significantly expand our team.


Where we are travelling

Over the past 12 months TravelTime have built a number of integrations into other third-party technologies (ArcGIS, QGIS, and Alteryx) that allow our clients to use the power of TravelTime analytics right where they need it. We have also engaged with world leading technology partners, giving us a healthy sales forecast and user base for 2021.
