Tripseed was founded during the global pandemic by a group of like-minded destination management experts with over two decades of combined experience in the industry. So what did we have in common you might ask? What makes a group of people like us think that starting a travel company in the middle of a global travel shutdown is a good idea?
Well… we all believed that the local travel industry needed to grow back better.
The global pandemic was a wake-up call for many businesses. The travel industry needs to change. Its growth needs to happen more ethically and sustainably than it has in the past. Not just environmentally, but by significantly improving equality for local employees, supporting locally-owned businesses, and providing self-sustaining growth opportunities for local communities. We seek to provide an alternative to the status quo that makes achieving this a reality.
