April 21, 2016 by Triptelia Team

Triptelia is an online directory aiming to enable a cluster between Homeowners and market Freelancers contributing to the Tourism Industry to join forces under a concept of intelligent travelling.

Certainly not! Our concept is clear:

– Homeowners and Property Managers are able to offer add-ons to travellers recommending a number of concierge services in a package scheme to gain visibility.

– Affiliated Freelancers integrate their services to the home listings attracting travellers’ attention.

– Travellers enjoy multiple options to select from, whether it is only about accommodation or adding extra services to their vacation plans.

Well… Do you celebrate an anniversary, or need a birthday surprise? Filter your search by the Event Planners to see their locations and range and get new travel ideas. Need a dental care or a physiotherapy treatment? Discover destinations offering a lot more than you already know! Would love to organise a five star day tour even if you are on a low budget? You may find yourselves overwhelmed! Do you have any special interests? You might go for bird watching with an ornithologist in a natural reserve you’ve never heard of, or for wine tasting with an expert oenologist to help you learn more on the field, or just take a course on the local language… The list can be endless. You name it!

Triptelia aims to provide travellers not only with the best places in town, but also with a broad network in order to offer experiences as unique and as memorable as possible!
