Two Friends Build A Brand New Platform Set To Change The Travel Game

Tripwell, a cutting-edge platform in which everyday travellers can find and connect with creators and book their holidays directly from their content, has launched in Australia and New Zealand.

Gone are the days of having 25 tabs open just to find the best hotel and top-tier experiences ahead of your next holiday.

Enter Tripwell, a platform created by two travel buddies – during the pandemic – from an identified gap in the market for a platform that enables consumers to discover and book travel directly from the content they’re reading and the people they’re following. Co-Founders Hayley Gray and Nick MacAvoy realised that Aussies have a strong desire to explore but want tried and true advice from people with similar preferences to their own.

From hotels for short weekend getaways to hikes only found off the beaten trail, travellers will be able to book their next unforgettable holiday through Tripwell by following their favourite creators or searching by location through the Tripwell platform. Once a user finds destination content they wish to book, Tripwell generated links will direct the traveller to partner websites for booking. Dreaming of a group holiday? Users can also add destinations and content to their own board and share amongst their friends!

And, if you’re a travel content creator, you can earn some extra coin on the side to fund your next adventure!

Speaking about the launch, Tripwell Co-Founder and CEO, Hayley Gray says: “We are so excited to be launching what we believe is the next gen of travel! I love exploring myself and know i’m not alone in saying that booking the perfect holiday can be an arduous task with many hours of research – and even then, you aren’t exactly sure what to expect until you arrive. By building that bridge between travellers and creators, we are hoping not only inspire Aussies to dive head first into their next trip but make sure creators keep doing what they do best – sharing amazing content.”

Not only will Tripwell act as a consolidated discovery tool for the keen Aussie traveller, it also allows travel and lifestyle creators to leverage the platform to monetise trips of their own. Tripwell takes a small portion of the booking fee from the linked vendors, with the majority of the fee passed on to the creator. Another plus is that unlike many social media platforms, creator content stays evergreen on Tripwell, meaning endless discovery options for the consumer and endless earning potential for creators.

Tripwell is ready for travellers to dive head first and already has some amazing creators uploading their travels, including ASTW Photographer of the Year and travel creators – Dan & Zora Avila and photographer, Nikon Ambassador and travel creator, Alex Kydd – with more to come!
