Saint Louis, Missouri – June 19, 2018 –Tripster, a provider of tickets for theme parks, shows, attractions, tours, and hotels for over 16 years, announced the addition of another popular travel destination in Toronto, the capital of Ontario. Toronto is the company’s second new travel destination to launch in 2018, and the first international destination for the United States-based company.
With a location on Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore, Toronto serves as the capital of Ontario and offers a dynamic mix of things to do for visitors. This thriving metropolis features the soaring CN Tower, the 400-acre High Park, family-friendly attractions like Canada’s Wonderland, Ripley’s Aquarium and the Toronto Zoo as well as nearby Niagara Falls. In addition, this tourism destination is notable for its numerous museums, historic sites, sports activities and entertainment opportunities.
In 2017, the destination welcomed more than 43 million visitors and more than 15 million overnight guests. Both of these figures shattered previous records, indicating Toronto is capturing the attention of travelers worldwide. With that in mind, Tripster aims to serve those travelers’ needs by focusing on seamless, convenient access to Toronto vacation packages, attraction tickets, hotels and more.
“Toronto is a vibrant destination that appears to be poised for continued tourism growth,” said John Johnson, CEO of Tripster. “Expanding upon our existing relationships, such as Ripley’s Aquariums and Cedar Fair’s Canada’s Wonderland among others was a natural fit for Tripster. We anticipate similar success in Toronto as we’ve had in the States. Combining these tickets with hotels makes for ease of booking and compelling value.”
Toronto joins 19 other prominent United States travel destinations in Tripster’s growing portfolio. Tripster’s websites provide travelers an easy-to-use booking solution for attraction and show tickets, hotels, and vacation packages. The company’s proprietary reservation and ticketing engines offer customers a single source for vacation planning and custom package creation for additional savings.
The launch of the Toronto market continues Tripster’s mission of providing quality vacation experiences to travelers the world over.

Using a proprietary booking engine, Tripster customers can access first-hand content and reviews to plan, customize, and book entire vacations within a single transaction.
