For many of us, traveling during COVID-19 is overwhelming, scary, and uncertain. And rightfully so. With guidelines and restrictions changing daily, it’s difficult to keep up with the adjustments and feel confident in booking future travel. However, one app is offering a solution.

DragonSlayer, an app that launched last year, was originally intended to help discerning travelers find experiences that fit their travel style. But when COVID-19 hit, like many businesses, it was forced to change its focus.

The app now focuses on providing travelers with the most up-to-date information on where they are allowed to travel and what restrictions they will face upon arrival. You can now make better informed travel decisions with the help of their data, compiled from around the globe.

“Using our proprietary analytics, we rank all 50 states and 124 countries with SAFE-T ( Smart Analytics For Educating Travelers) and customize it to any particular risk tolerance with our unique filtering options. We provide the latest information on the reopening of states and our growing list of countries. With a quick glance, you can identify which destinations still require quarantine and learn more about their local conditions upon arrival,” reads a statement on the website.
