Nezasa was born in 2012 in Zurich, Switzerland by a team of enthusiastic travelers (with some solid IT skills!). A promise was made between them to developing a technology that would shed the limitations of traditional travel by creating a tool that makes travel experiences more attractive, flexible and convenient. The company started by selling travel packages to end-customers and built a global network of partnerships while optimizing the underlying technology.
Soon, the young entrepreneurs started hearing that the existing travel distribution companies such as tour operators and travel agents are waiting for such a technology. In 2014, they therefore decided to focus on the technology part and provide their game-changing technology to the travel industry in order to supports its digitalization.
