TECH CRUNCH - Aug 15 - MissTravel initially launched as a dating site two and a half years ago, the first in the "travel dating space," according to founder Brandon Wade, who is behind sugar daddy sites SeekingArrangement.com and WhatsYourPrice.com. Tinder launched a "Passport" feature earlier this year. But MissTravel, which just launched its mobile app last week, is taking the concept a step further. Users can post trips, and choose from three options: "I Have an Extra Ticket," "Take Me Along,"or "I Have My Own Ticket." According to Wade, MissTravel provides an optional verification to users who choose to pay for a background check, although anyone can create a profile without it. So the app is not responsible for the outcome of users' travel dates. Wade admits that MissTravel dates have resulted in a few "situations where members have been stranded," but he assures that the company did everything it could to help those women get tickets home.
