Wayonara is a tradename owned by Nextop Italia S.r.l., a limited company founded in Italy during mid 2013 by Carlo Oppo, Salvatore Baldinu and Michele Meloni. Wayonara’s name is the merger between “sayonara”, the Japanese word to say goodbye, and “way”, that echoes the transports and the different ways to travel.
Wayonara started as a research project for the development of an intermodal selling platform, backed with EU funds by Sardegna Ricerche, a Sardinian public entity for Research & Development who launched the first online newspaper in Europe under the direction of the Noble Prize Carlo Rubia.
Nextop is an ICT company and a fully licensed Online Travel Agency License n. 380 – 30 June 2014 (Register of Travel Agencies and Tourism established at the Sardinian Regional Department of Tourism).
Nextop owns the trademarks Nextop, Wayonara and Travel Builder. The site itself is protected by copyright law. All other trademarks used on the site are the property of their respective owners.

Wayonara engineering is based on the principles of rapid development, continuous deployment and individual responsibility. We’re looking for passionate and motivated developers to help us make Wayonara bigger, better and faster. Our technology has been entirely developed in house and is therefore completely unique, powering the typical engagement of a social network with the selling attitude of an online travel agency. It consists of two mutually complementary patent pending platforms: the UGC Planning Tool and the Intermodal Selling Platform:
UGC Planning Tool
The User-Generated Content oriented travel Planning Tool enables users to build their dream trips through the contents shared by other users. Wayonara enables users to seamlessly and dynamically build any itinerary using the experiences
and the contents shared by other users, in a fun, easy and innovative way.
Intermodal Selling Platform
The Intermodal Selling Platform enables users to search, quote, build and book feasable itinerary routes with different means of transport. Its hybrid approach allows to compute real time availability with scheduled connections to deliver a comprehensive door-to-door experience as long as new suppliers are integrated.
