Tripology, the leading online travel referral service, reports reaching a milestone this month with the submission of its 65,000th trip request. The company has processed more than 65,000 trip requests since the consumer launch of Tripology.com in June 2007.
“We are thrilled with the increased traffic from consumers. It demonstrates that while the economy is down, consumers are still traveling and planning future trips…more and more, they are simply realizing the benefits and importance of utilizing the services of a travel specialist when planning and booking their trips,” said John T. Peters, president and CEO. “The right travel specialist can not only stretch your travel dollar, but can also save you tons of time, offer a stress-free trip-planning experience, provide expert guidance and knowledge about the places you want to visit, plus much more.”
The request milestone follows Tripology’s recent marking of the evolution of its specialist network of vetted travel agents and travel providers to include 10,000 travel professionals. The company’s travel specialists, known as Tripologists, boast world-class travel industry affiliations and qualifications.
“Within our network of 10,000 Tripologists we have travel professionals who specialize in a wide variety of vacation styles, locations, experiences and price levels. This diversified network ensures that Tripology can match virtually any traveler—no matter how specific the request—with a qualified travel specialist to help plan and book the desired trip,” said Peters.
For travelers, Tripology combines a content-rich online experience with access to travel professionals for the personal attention and service they seek. For travel specialists, Tripology is the most cost-effective way to get qualified travel leads. It enables agents to harness the immense reach of the Web, then work one-on-one with prospective clients to cultivate a customer for life, Tripology says.
