Who we are

Company History

Raised in the Azores, Founder & CEO Luis Nunes quickly recognized this untapped destination had the potential to become a sought-after market for tourism. A tech wiz with an affinity in software engineering, Nunes' stints working as a consultant and at Azores Airlines served as catalysts where he launched an impactful, novel algorithm to put the Azores on the map. 
And just like that in 2011, Nunes launched Ideastation - Soluções Informáticas to patent his innovative booking and search software. It didn't take long for Luis to realize that there was an opportunity to create an online travel agency where he could utilize his own technology to offer customers a streamlined search and booking process, and thus, Inovtravel (Innovation + Travel) was born. 
Under the Inovtravel agency umbrella, a fleet of travel brands that addressed different markets in Portugal and Europe were launched, which included Azores Getaways, Portugal Getaways and Yes! Getaways. A quick and easily bundled itinerary could now be accomplished with the click of a button. Since then, Inovtravel has rapidly expanded and introduced Portugal to thousands of travelers globally.
