Ravel Trips is a platform which connects travelers with travel experts to plan journeys. It gives freelance planners and advisors a dedicated marketplace and powerful planning software to grow their business while unlocking a new way to explore the world and save time for travelers.
By making a trip request or browsing trips on the platform, users will be matched with an expert. The experts have an award winning software with collaborative and immersive tools for planning accommodation, transportation, activities, and budgeting as well as payment processing for their clients. Otherwise travelers can use the same tools to plan a trip themselves or by copying a published trip. Easily publish your trip to the community and share your story.
We believe there is enormous value in the expertise of trip planners and travel advisors. Unfortunately most of the industry is going towards transactional purchases on travel aggregators and trip planned by "AI". In the end, travelers are getting reduction in choice and value. By connecting them (even the ones who have never used an advisor before) with experts to plan a trip for them, they save time and headaches - not to mention getting an incredible curated journey just for them. I hope you like what we've created and you join us in unraveling the world.
Hi Brice, thanks for sharing Ravel Trips with the Travel Massive community. Looks like you’ve got a great team behind the business!
There’s a few advisor marketplaces that connect travelers with planners, what makes Ravel Trips stand out from the crowd?
What destinations are you looking to focus on as you grow?
Hey Ian, thanks for building a great community at Travel Massive! We're happy to be a part of it :)
At the basis of our marketplace is a powerful software suite, which on its own is a great tool to improve the daily workflow of advisors. Our advantage there is that advisors can promote themselves, acquire and collaborate with clients, and manage their daily work all in one place.
This also means that the itineraries in our platform are immersive and interactive, connected with metadata. You're not just looking at a photo of a piece of art, but you can touch and feel it!
We've been targeting popular destinations like Italy, Thailand, and Costa Rica and expanding regionally from there. We're happy to hear from any local teams working in those areas!
Ravel is a unique app since it gives you a closer look on a true genuine people experience. It is not like the same catalogue like trips which most travel agencies offer.
To me it is like dinning in a fast food chain vs going to a fine dine restuarant
