Tripshire: one stop shop for personalised search options to book adventure experiences in India
Both Adventure sports and entrepreneurship bring you face-to-face with your biggest fears and nudge you to overcome them. Proud BITS Pilani alumni Rohan Verma & Zenith Karri continue the journey with their combo mission with passion venture tripshire
TripShire launched the world's first online travel marketplace to compare and book adventure tours and activities. For the very first time, travelers in a true sense can make direct bookings online from tour operators at walk in prices- because why pay more and buy from traditional tour agencies who have no transparency.
College buds and fellow engineers Zenith Karri and Rohan Verma, both avid travellers, bid adieu to the lures of the corporate world so that they could put together a comprehensive platform for making adventure experience bookings simpler for fellow travellers. Both were students of Birla Institute of Technology and Science - BITS Pilani – Rohan Verma Computer Science 2010 – 2014 and Zenith Karri Chemical Engineering 2011 – 2015.
Rohan and Zenith share the reason for building this unique website, "We found no single platform where we could research, plan and book a trip all on one single platform. In addition, curated holiday packages don't come cheap. Moreover, it had been almost impossible to book adventure tours online directly from tour operators unless one spent days googling, reading opinionated / redundant reviews / blogs. Both the founders were firm that even after all this jazz, if one were to find suitable options, lingering doubts about picking the right one with the best market price would still persist.
Based in Gurgaon, they have now launched in India with over 100 hand picked tour operators listed on their platform providing over 20+ adventure sports such as camping, trekking, mountain biking, bungee jumping, rafting etc. in Northern India. They have started getting initial bookings and are all set to make a mark in the upcoming season. Founded in 2016, TripShire is currently bootstrapped, with 10 employees and over a million spent in past one and a half year - they are looking out for funding options to grow in India and expand to Southeast Asia starting June 2018.
With a vision to build a community platform for adventure enthusiasts around the world, TripShire gives an opportunity to the tour operators to list their tours and activities online & encounter sales through the digital channel. Currently more than 80% of tour operators still run their businesses offline. On the other side of the marketplace, travelers from around the world can discover, compare and book what they like directly from tour operators instead of the traditional travel agencies.
Tripshire future plans include launching the app in coming month and expand to Southeast Asia to become industry leaders in selling online tours and activities. As part of the longer plan, Rohan and Zenith wish to build a personalized virtual itinerary planner - which could plan an entire trip for a traveler with ease.
TripShire is also soon to introduce a passive income model for people in India, where travellers can earn based on the value of their contribution to the adventure community. Right now one can still earn credits by simply sharing the invite link with your friends and family. One can also fund their next adventure simply by inviting people in their network.
