Kaunas is the second-largest metropolis of Lithuania and an important economic, scientific, and cultural life center. The city is famous for its Interwar architecture, Art Deco buildings, street art, and unique museums. Chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2022, Kaunas will welcome tourists with numerous festivals, events, and experiences. Starting today, the artificial intelligence (AI) travel assistant developed by Eddy Travels will help people seamlessly plan their trips to Kaunas.

The fully automated AI assistant allows travellers to use natural language to search and book the best travel deals without entering search criteria in cumbersome search forms. Instead, travellers can search flights, accommodation, tours, and activities by messaging the digital assistant in the chat widget on the Kaunas tourism websites.

Inga Pažereckaitė-Kalėdienė, Head of Tourism Division at Kaunas IN, said: “We want travelers to feel #kaunastic at the very starting point, we are happy to offer an additional tool that makes planning the trip much easier. It’s a win-win solution for the city of Kaunas and travellers: for the city, it helps to highlight the most important information, and for the travellers, it helps to personalize their trip according to their needs. The AI chatbot is ready to help at any time, but if the question can not be answered by AI yet, Kaunas IN team will be happy to help or answer individually. We are sure that this solution will be extremely useful before and during 2022 – Kaunas European Capital of Culture.”

Edmundas Balčikonis, Co-Founder and CEO at Eddy Travels, added: “Over the last few years, Kaunas has seen a dramatic rise in popularity from both domestic and international travellers. As the European Capital of Culture 2022, Kaunas will attract more tourists with hundreds of cultural activities. We are delighted to help travelers plan a perfect trip to Kaunas with Eddy Travels AI assistant.”

The AI travel assistant integrates with Booking.com, Kiwi.com, GetYourGuide, and other leading travel companies. Cutting-edge technology for natural language understanding (NLU) is powering the digital assistant. After receiving a message, the AI-powered chatbot automatically understands what people are looking for and responds with the best travel offers in seconds.
