Tripology, the online travel referral service, reached a milestone this month with the submission of its 100,000th trip request. The company said it has seen the momentum of consumer trip requests submitted via Tripology.com more than double over the past six months.
"Particularly in the current economy, not only does the right specialist help save you money and offer value added extras, but can also save you tons of time, offer stress-free trip planning, and provide expert guidance and knowledge about the destination you want to visit...including the best hotels, restaurants and attractions," said John T. Peters, president and CEO. "That's what today's consumers are looking for.”
Since launching Tripology.com in June 2007, the company said it has had more than 100,000 consumer travelers submit a free trip request looking to be matched with up to three of the 13,000 travel agents in Tripology's global network. The result: consumers using the site are resoundingly pleased with the service.
"Our Tripologist asked me appropriate clarifying questions and quickly set to work coming up with our trip plan," said Bruce P, customer. "She listened to exactly what we were looking for and gave effective advice for us to stay in budget. After speaking with her at length on the phone, I realized further that she was very knowledgeable about the Hawaiian Islands - and created what turned out to be an amazing vacation for us."
"The Tripology travel specialist I decided to book with truly seems to be an advocate for the traveler, trying to provide just what the traveler is looking for and within a specified budget amount," said Sandra M. "I could not be happier with the services she has provided and heartily recommend Tripology's services to anyone that is seeking to travel."On the Tripology website, consumers can put all of their wishes into a trip request form. Usually within a day, they are connected via e-mail or phone with up to three travel agents who specialize in the type of trip they are seeking. Tripology is free to consumers.
"With demand for our service up, we are pleased to continue enhancing our network of Tripologists currently made up of 13,000 travel specialists," said Peters. "This diversified network of travel professionals who specialize in a wide variety of vacation styles, locations, experiences and price levels 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."
