Triptease wins both the Travel Innovator of the Year Award and the People’s Choice Award at the The Travel Innovation Summit Europe, held on May 13, 2015.
Triptease is not just about a catchy name but , yes it is a bit of a tongue-in-cheep app! In an online marketplace that is increasingly driven by comparison sites, Triptease have taken the concept and offered it to the hotelier.
It is rather simple!
Their service provides the hotelier with a widget comparing prices for their hotel on top booking sites such as Booking.com and Expedia vs. the hotel’s direct price. Neat!
Their pricing starts from £25 (€35) per month for a boutique hotel, with just one comparison site, and believe it or not, you have to wait!
My guess? They are not interested in small businesses, so whilst Phocuswright might have awarded them the award for their innovative approach, I give them the booth for their lack of vision!
