Tripfuser launches 100-plus travel ‘bubble’ trips, gains ATAS accreditation

Tripfuser has launched its own exclusive travel ‘bubble’ gallery of more than 100 locally-designed, fully-customisable itineraries in anticipation of the lifting of travel restrictions.

The new holiday options have been designed by an experienced panel of local experts in Australia, New Zealand and across the Pacific Islands, and are targeted at Tripfuser’s network of more than 2,400 travel agents.

Tripfuser CEO Matt McCann said the new ‘Close to Home’ range of trips – built with the help of over 30 travel agents – will help them restart conversations with their clients about travelling again.

“It’s time to change the conversation, embrace the new normal and start talking to clients again about travelling – even if that is about travelling closer to home,” he said.

“Tripfuser has spent the past two months building an amazing gallery of travel options in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands; markets where we believe we are going to be able to travel this year.

“Our Close to Home gallery includes everything from weekend escapes to the iconic trips of a lifetime. With over 100 itineraries, there will be an option that will work for you and your clients.

“Tripfuser has built the gallery with a working group of 30+ travel agents who have helped us refine these trips to deliver extraordinary travel experiences and great value.” McCann said.

Additionally, the travel tech player has confirmed its official ATAS accreditation, which McCann described as “a key step in Tripfuser’s growth as an emerging player is the Australia travel landscape”.
