A Creative Platform for Extraordinary Travel
Travel differently. Kated is a free service helping travelers get what they really want from a trip.
The Travel Bucketlist
Traditional travel agents and online platforms promote the best-selling products in the best-selling destinations. This is unsustainable and really really dull.
Everyone travels differently. Everyone has their own bucketlists. Kated is a platform where creative and extraordinary travel ideas are shared. Instead of selling products with prices, we give you inspiration.
Travel moments are ideas for things to do all over the world.
Travel experiences are itinerary ideas to help your trip planning
Explore new and favourite countries to stay away from the standard tourist trail.

Travel Designers, not Travel Agents - What’s the Difference?
Traditional travel agents and online platforms can book you a trip to anywhere. But they are based in the same place you are traveling from.
Travel designers are based in the place you are traveling to. They are the real travel experts, because they have unrivaled on-the-ground expertise and experience.
Travel designers don’t sell the best-selling products. They invite and host. Of course they know more about where you are going – they live there! They have the knowledge and connections to create something more unique and individual.
It is local travel designers that provide all the unique travel ideas you will find on Kated.
Booking the Trip You Want
Kated does not organise or operate any trips. We don’t put prices on travel designers’ ideas because they are not products.
If you are inspired by the travel ideas we will connect you directly to the relevant travel designer. You will then discuss your trip directly with the best possible specialist.
Your travel designer will organise and arrange a trip based exactly on what you want, including accommodation, activities, transfers and the ideas in your bucketlist.
- Authentic – travel is better with the locals
- Sustainable – more money stays in local communities
- Better value – cutting out agents and middlemen saves money
- Memorable – every trip deserves to be unforgettable
- Extraordinary – experience things others don’t even know about

Travel During Coronavirus
With all the changing restrictions it’s harder to travel during the coronavirus pandemic. You need reliable, up-to-date information about restrictions and staying safe. The best people to provide this are locals, on the ground in the place you want to visit.
However, there are some things that none of us can control, such as government-imposed travel restrictions. Payment for your trip is held in escrow. So if a trip needs to be cancelled, you get your money back immediately.
