Tripshelf is an online marketplace for discovering and comparing tour packages
Bengaluru – Dec 17, 2016. RedNewswire/-
Delhi-based online travel marketplace TripShelf raises $235K in seed funding from GEMs Advisory & Quarizon. It aggregates tour packages from multiple travel agencies (domestic and international) to give the consumer a listing of holiday package tours.
The newly raised funds will be used for onboarding more tour operators onto the platform, enhancing technology and digital marketing to enable business conversions from enquiries. A part of fund raised will be used to develop a merchant centre for the operators on its platform.
Tripshelf allows users to compare prices and packages from various travel operators listed on the platform and then the user can book on the supplier’s website. The company claims to have all verified and tested agents.
The company is also looking to launch a mobile app to access deals from over 105 travel operators on its platform.
The company was founded by Jai Raj Gupta, Dhruv Gupta and Sukhmani Singh in April 2016.
Dhruv Raj Gupta, co-founder and chief executive of TripShelf said,
“We have created a platform to aggregate the travel operators both offline and online and thereby provide a better planning experience for our users. We are extremely excited to have GEMS and Quarizon on our board, especially given their experience in the travel domain. We look forward to a strong mentorship from the Quarizon team and as an immediate next step, we would be launching a mobile app for our users”
The company has previously raised $250k pre-series A funding from GEMS group in July 2016.
