Travel Leaders Franchise Group has developed a mobile application for leisure clientele, offering information on top travel destinations around the world.

The new app is set to launch within a month for users of Apple and Android devices.

Travel Leaders said that once agents make a booking, they can provide clients with a link enabling them to download the app prior to their departure.

The app will be priced so that agents can provide it to their clients for much less than it would cost to buy something comparable, Travel Leaders said.

The app's destination content can be fully downloaded prior to the trip so users avoid incurring roaming charges while abroad.

In addition, the app has an "augmented reality” feature allowing users to point their devices at a landmark or location and instantly learn about places to visit, along with admission prices, hours of operation and user reviews.

Roger Block, president of Travel Leaders Franchise Group, said the app enables clients to "take their agents with them virtually on a trip."

Travel Leaders' announcement comes just one week after sister company Vacation.com launched a consumer app for clients.

The new app complements one that Travel Leaders rolled out in November for business travel clients. It enables corporate travel managers to track travelers, push interactive itineraries and notify travelers of potential issues during their trips.
