About LOVU

LOVU is a romance travel tech startup that operates a mobile app marketplace for lodging, vacation rentals, cruises, tourism activity providers, and travel advisors. LOVU aims to become the world's go-to resource for celebratory romantic trips. From wedding proposals to destination weddings to honeymoons to anniversaries to vow renewals to wedding proposals and babymoons. 

The company is based in New York City. The platform is accessible via a mobile app. LOVU does not own any of the listed properties; instead, it profits by receiving subscription and advertising fees from service providers. 

LOVU is a shortened version of I LOVE YOU.

LOVU is disrupting the Travel Industry by removing the middlemen – online travel companies that provide no real value – to put consumers in control of their romantic travel experiences. We are making research, planning, and booking straightforward and even fun for everyone involved.
