Following the advice of Horace Greeley who proclaimed, “Go West, young man and grow up with the country,” Tripster has done just that with the launch of its new travel destination, San Diego. As a popular California destination, San Diego marks Tripster’s 12th market and first on the West Coast—not to mention its fourth new travel website in 2014. As with their other destinations, San Diego will feature Tripster’s unique approach to custom vacation planning, ease of booking, and travel deals for area attractions and hotels.
“We are excited to be a part of Tripster and their expansion to the West Coast,” said Jay Judal of the San Diego Zoo. “San Diego and the Zoo will benefit from their approach to destination marketing and direct-to-gate tickets.”
Rich in history and character, San Diego features some of the most popular attractions in the country to include the world famous San Diego Zoo, showcasing over 3700 animals, and the original SeaWorld marine life theme park which opened in 1964. The San Diego Harbor is home to Hornblower Cruises, the Maritime Museum, and the U.S.S. Midway, a retired Naval aircraft carrier. Other attractions throughout San Diego County, and available on Tripster are LEGOLAND California located in Carlsbad and Safari Park located in Escondido.
“As Tripster continues to grow, we are most interested in family vacation destinations that cater to our existing consumer base,” said John Johnson, President of Tripster. “San Diego is a natural fit for our model and sales strategies, and we are fortunate to have some great partnerships with world-renown travel products that also see the benefit of our model.”
Some of Tripster’s other destination websites, like Orlando and Williamsburg, already represent similar travel products like SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Medieval Times, and Legoland Florida, offering the same travel services to customers.
