Tripster Launches a Digital Travel Guide in Partnership with GettinLocal

The online travel company, Tripster, launches a new digital app that provides users with a dynamic hyperlocal discovery guide that utilizes state-of-the-art geo-fence technology to bring local attractions, tours, museums, restaurants, and more directly to the user’s fingertips. Download the app. 

Branson, Missouri, April 16, 2022 – Tripster announces the launch of a new mobile booking application that was released this month in both the iOS App Store and Google Play store. The Tripster app, developed by the technology company, GettinLocal utilizes a white-label platform to highlight Tripster experience and hotel partners.  

“The GettinLocal app, by itself, provides a comprehensive directory for travelers, especially when in-market.  Our ability to piggyback that platform with a custom branded version presents an opportunity to extend our booking services into the entire customer journey, building more value to their overall experience with Tripster.” said John Johnson, Tripster’s Founder and CEO. 

The Tripster App will feature not only the many experiences offered by Tripster, but also added travel-related services, such as restaurant reservations, health, and wellness, shopping, nightlife, and more. In addition, in partnership with GettinLocal, and their other experience providers, the App will reach destinations and things to do beyond Tripster’s directly contracted network for a consumer-first approach. 

“We are thrilled that Tripster is partnering with GettinLocal to license and develop their new mobile app through its white-label platform, Powered by GettinLocal. This partnership combines our proprietary mobile application platform and location-based marketing technology with Tripsters’ wide array of hotels, experiences, attractions, and vacation packages. We are excited to witness how Tripsters’ new mobile app will elevate their current reach by making it more accessible and appealing to existing and new consumers- particularly when they arrive at the destination,” said Vito Pagano, GettinLocal’s Founder and CEO.

ACTIVITIES CHANNEL MANAGEMENT SERVICE, INGRESSSO, CONNECTS WITH TRIPSTER

Tour and Activity Partners of Ingresso Can Now Benefit from a New Dynamic Integration with Tripster

Las Vegas, Nevada, December 7, 2021 – The U.S.-based online travel agency, Tripster, is pleased to partner with Ingresso, a global distribution platform that connects customers with the world’s best entertainment content. The partnership allows end-to-end connectivity for travel operators to dynamically manage their resell accounts, including rates and availability as well as digital fulfillment. The two tour and activity-based services can now more proficiently manage fulfillment for mutual operators. 

“We are excited to expand our connectivity with Ingresso,” said John Johnson, CEO and Founder of Tripster. “Fueled by our partnership with Merlin Entertainments, we quickly discovered Ingresso has an expansive operator list with much crossover that will benefit us as a reseller.” 

Ingresso, a channel management service for tour and activity operators, provides ticketing technology through seamless distribution between travel products and resell agencies. The company, owned by Accesso, operates worldwide and has previously connected with online travel agencies such as Viator, GetYourGuide and Tiqets.

The partnership adds to Tripster’s growing list of connectivity partners that now include Redeam, Rezdy, FareHarbor and Galaxy Connect. As Ingresso’s distribution system seamlessly integrates with global ticketing systems, Tripster strengthens its growing access to potential customers. 

What separates Tripster from other activity resellers is its ability to package experiences with lodging. Lodging suppliers can maximize sales by utilizing Tripster’s packaging service that bundles their room with activities. To that end, other hotel equivalent channel managers that have connected with Tripster include Sabre Synxis, TravelClick, Siteminder and property management systems.

The connectivity with Ingresso reduces management time for Tripster operators while providing customers with more accurate and efficient reservations. This direct feed of traveler supplier data enhances the experience for suppliers as real-time data exchange improves the accuracy of pricing and availability. 

Tripster was founded in 2001 as a destination-specific travel planning service specializing in tour and activity resell and has since evolved into an industry-leading platform for experience bookings. Using proprietary technology, Tripster offers travelers the ability to dynamically book, in real-time, direct-to-gate tickets in itinerary or package form to provide value from whole trip booking. Now featuring more than 30 North American destinations, Tripster has sold over five million tickets to over 1,400 experience partners, including tours, museums, theme parks, outdoor adventure, live shows, aquariums, zoos, cruises and many more.
