Sorry for late reply.
We are currently Beta-testing Traveler software with Windows Phone 7.5 support in our company.
It have to be installed on your Lotus server.
Some expirience so far:
Windows 8 -> tried with Samsung Ativ S and HTC WP 8S. Not working really well, syncronisation often fail, when mail is replied receiver get empty mail
Windows 7.5 -> tried with Nokia Lumia 900. Working perfectly well. BTW, it is not additional Lotus Traveler SW but using Exchange ActiveSync account which is nice as it doesn't require additional SW on device (like Android does) and it perfectly integrate into build in mail and calendar account.
Waiting for Lumia 920 to see how it work in combination Nokia/WP8.

I'm in the same situation, my company uses Lotus Notes and they are going to open our mobile phone policy to include iOS and Android devices sometime early next year. I hope I can get my work email on my WP8 device without too much hassle. I know that Traveler is supposed to support WP8 but if our IT group has to install a bunch of updates or patches to get it work, I could be out of luck.
It would be great to hear from other people with Notes Traveler and WP8 experiences.

I have an update for everyone. I finally got access to the Lotus Notes Traveler system from my company. In order to configure the device we have to log into a web site with our Notes "Internet Password," those with Notes will know what I'm talking about. When I get to this web site and log in, it says my device (a Nokia Lumia 920) could not be identified. It then lets me download Lotus Notes Traveler for Android, Symbian/Series 60, Windows Mobile 6.0/6.1/6.5, or generate an Apple Profile. None of these seem to work with Windows Phone 8 so I think I'm stuck.
My company is running Lotus Notes Traveler version 126.96.36.199 and I found info saying that WP8 is supported in 8.5.4 (it's from a comment at the very bottom of the page)...
Ed Brill - Notes Traveler 188.8.131.52 - now with partial wipe! (and 8.5.3 preview)
I guess I'm out of luck unless my company upgrades to the newest version of Lotus Notes Traveler. Anyone else have luck getting this to work with WP8?

I found this from the Wikipedia article for Lotus Notes...
Two versions 8.5.4 and 9.0 were developing simultaneously in 2012, but IBM has rebranded the 8.5.4 release as a full version release 9.0 in a middle 2012. At the end of 2012 and in 2013 IBM decided to launch 8.5.4 Maintenance Release and 9.0 Social Edition as two separated products.
So it sounds like 8.5.4 and 9.0 are two separate products that might both support WP8. I'm guessing it'll be much easier for companies to upgrade to 8.5.4 then to 9.0 so I'm hoping my company does this soon.
I tested out Lotus Notes Traveler with my iPad and it works great!!! It's awesome having the native email and calendar apps work with Lotus Notes.
