In a two-pronged approach, three global travel players are seeking to strengthen the travel industry’s long-term health via a push for a fairer and greener tourism industry.
SINGAPORE, SEPTEMBER 26th, 2020 - Digital, mobile-first tour management software and a member-owned travel network, two key contributions to the travel industry that are being offered by Triip, GlobalTix, and Tour Operators United, which will help to fortify and grow the travel sector amid the pandemic.
Through this network, Triip aims to establish a fairer travel economy serving member operators at a lower commission rate than existing OTA’s.
The Big Picture for Travel post Covid
What to expect:
- Finally, a next generation, end to end, decentralized marketplace and global travel management system for thousands of Tour Operators to directly connect to Travel Agents and Travelers
- Dramatically lowered fees thus enhancing financial viability and viability of the greater tourism network. The marketplace would operate with a 2 percent fee compared to the industry average of 20 percent and above.
- Members will also earn TriipMiles tokens, upon registration and upon every successful booking made through the platform. In the near future, members can use tokens for governance purposes. The marketplace will be run by a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), not a centralized company.
- 1% of all bookings to fund initiatives helping the industry recover from Covid-19.
In spite of the pandemic, the travel industry must move forward in a more sustainable way for both traveler and supplier. It will take bold solutions like TriipExperiences, built in the present, to forge a stronger, more profitable, and greener tomorrow.
How do travelers benefit?
With a direct connection to agents and operators in the locations they will be traveling, you cut out the middleman, and the middleman fees. This will make for more affordable travel offers. Travelers also will earn TriipMiles by uploading trip plans, booking trips, and referrals. TriipMiles can be used as currency to book their next vacation. Travelers can also participate in social initiatives automatically for every booking without paying extra.
"In relation to travel, Tour Operators and Travel Agencies were hit the hardest during this pandemic. Being at the mercy of large OTA's and suppliers meant no control over refunds, policies, customer care or retention. TriipExperiences puts the power back where it belongs, connecting Operators and Agents directly to each other and the traveler. We love this. TriipExperiences is an OTA who's bottom line is not dependent on commission, but rather traveler and seller usage. This is a game changer. This along with increased popularity in digital currency puts TriipExperiences at the forefront of a much needed evolution of OTAs. Globaltix offering an affordable booking platform that easily interacts with Triip is the cherry on top. We’re excited to be the first to introduce the pair to our Operator and Agent partners!" Nancy Walsh, administrator of Tour Operators United and owner of Webkinex.
