TravelLocal thinks that if you're planning a trip somewhere, it makes far more sense to do that with someone based on the ground in your destination. We cut out traditional, UK based travel agencies, and connect customers to the best locally owned travel companies in the world. In doing so, we're bringing the 'buy local' ethos to travel, starting with the £15bn tailor-made holidays market. With the use of our innovative web platform, we help locally owned travel companies compete on a level playing field with big, bland, UK/US based travel companies who frequently siphon off too much of the profits, leaving little in the destination.
We are revolutionising and dis-intermediating the way people book tailor-made holidays – bringing this hitherto offline sector online. We deliver inspiring, more authentic holiday
experiences for customers by connecting them with hand-picked travel experts in their destination - and making travel fairer for local companies. Our business, and the opportunity, is global – we have taken bookings from clients in 18 origin countries to date and we offer 45 destinations.
