PATA | 30 August 2019
In bid to solve overtourism, Zara Khanna, founder of Octa, created a travel chatbot that helps kids and parents find fun places to visit and cool things to do. The chatbot was developed for kids by kids, where users can discover family-friendly attractions, play areas and events, as well as tell jokes for those long plane, train and car rides.
Octa founder Zara Khanna just did a feature interview with Web in Travel. Check it out!
