Contiki's Shout now available on Android


Contiki's Travel tools and group timelines keep travellers connected before, during and after their trip

Contiki has launched an Android version or their popular Shout app.

Contiki Holidays, has launched the Android app version of ‘Shout’, their innovative travel app that connects Contiki travellers before, during and after their trip, and provides customised itinerary information and travel tools.

First released on the iPhone operating system (iOS) in September last year, Android users will be able to download and access the free app via their Play store.

Fiona Hunt, Managing Director, Contiki Holidays Australia said “Google’s Android operating system has been rapidly gaining popularity within the Australian market, particularly in the 18-35 demographic. It’s important that we are across all application platforms to ensure we’re continually enhancing consumer engagement and product accessibility.

“The social aspect of being on tour with old and new friends is a vital element to Contiki’s success and popularity and ‘Shout’ has been specifically-designed to help us extend and enrich the social aspect of travelling with us” she added.

‘Shout’ on Android has incorporated the same features as the existing iPhone application: 

  • Meetups: Before Contiki travellers even pack their bags they can connect, chat and even meet others who will be on the same scheduled tour/s
  • Timeline: This feature allows Contiki travellers to upload photos, videos and messages to share with their fellow tour buddies, essentially, creating a collaborative story of their journey together
  • Travel Tools: These are all the essential things one needs while travelling such as a currency convertor, language translator, weather forecasts and world clock
  • Offline: Designed to help eliminate expensive roaming fees – while offline travellers can add photos and videos to their timeline/social channels and once a Wi-Fi connection is recognised these will upload automatically

In addition, Contiki has partnered with global travel experts Lonely Planet to provide app users with customised itinerary and destination information, city maps and tips on the best local hotspots to eat, drink, see and play.
