Introducing Tripfuser: Your new custom trip planner

A new online trip designer has launched, where agents can create bookable, hand-crafted holidays for clients using tips from local experts.

Tripfuser allows agents to plug a client’s requirements into the site, which are then shared directly with Local Experts based in the travellers’ destination of choice and respond with a personalised trip.

The ‘experts’ then create a web-based Trip Plan which can be shared back with clients and then booked on the site.

It caters to every kind of traveller, from those flying solo who want high adventure, families travelling with children, groups seeking foodie and cultural experiences, and more.

Tripfuser also offers budget-friendly as well as luxury options for travellers. Nepal and Vietnam are currently live on the platform, with Cambodia, Thailand and more destinations to launch in the coming months.

Travel agents define how many Trip Plans they’d like to receive (each from a different Local Expert) as well as how quickly they’d like to receive them. Inbuilt chat allows a direct dialogue between the travel agent and Local Expert to finalise the trip.

AND – it’s totally commissionable on every booking.

Tripfuser CEO Matt Beard called the site an industry first, touting the high level of personlisation available.

“Tripfuser is the first major travel platform to offer this level of bespoke travel planning, which allows agents direct access to an open marketplace so they can provide varied and competitive proposals for their clients,” Beard said.

“We created this platform to offer significant added value to agents and their clients. To date, it has been challenging for travel agents to find custom product tailored to their clients’ interests without being in the destination to speak with locals directly.

“Agents can now provide a higher level of service to clients looking for a bespoke itinerary catering to their individual preferences,” he added.

What can you actually take from hotel rooms?

We could tell you this was an exclusive insight into what you can get away with stealing from hotels, but we’d be lying. We nicked it off an online forum.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.
