Tripifini, a New Platform for Bespoke International Travel, Commits a Percentage of Proceeds to Support Wildlife Conservation Efforts
SAN FRANCISCO, April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Earth Day, Tripifini (www.tripifini.com), a new platform that connects travelers to boutique local operators in more than 50 countries around the world, today announced a commitment to donate 5% of proceeds from their Earth Day collection to support wildlife conservation efforts. The Earth Day collection features 15 once-in-a-lifetime trips to Alaska, Costa Rica, Nepal, Uganda, Indonesia, the Galapagos, Belize, and Mexico. Every Tripifini trip -- including from the Earth Day collection -- can be customized by date, budget, travelers, and activities.
"Travel and conservation are inextricably linked and now - perhaps more than ever - travelers understand their responsibility to support conservation efforts in the places they visit, on Earth Day and everyday," said Mike Gerrity, CEO of Tripifini. "The fact is, there are several places on our travel bucket lists that might not be the same 10 or 20 years from now. As a brand we are focused on incredible experiences, but we want to highlight the commitment required to make sure these destinations are preserved for generations to come."
Founded by a group of travel industry veterans and enthusiasts based in San Francisco and London, Tripifini (rhymes with epiphany) is a new way to discover and book customized experiential trips with best-in-class local tour operators. The site is different from the traditional travel agent or travel site because it connects travelers directly to the operator, resulting in a superior itinerary and cost savings that can range from 15-40%. By going straight to the source, traveler's get authentic local advice, a completely customized travel plan, and eliminate layers of cost associated with traditional middlemen.
In addition to the Earth Day collection, Tripifini features more than 50 destination pages where travelers will find unique insider travel tips, country highlights, inspiring customizable itineraries, and gorgeous travel photos. When travelers have a good sense of where they want to go, Tripifini matches them to hand picked local operators who will build a custom end to end itinerary based on their specific travel preferences (accommodation style, interests, group dynamics, budget, travel ages, etc.). Once finalized, the entire trip is easily booked on Tripifini's secure US-based platform. Since launching at the end of 2016, Tripifini has helped travelers create bucket-list adventures ranging from culinary tours of Italy, to trekking the Inca Trail in Peru, to camping in a yurt in Mongolia, to wildlife safaris in Africa and India.
Tripifini's Earth Day promotion includes any custom trip inspired by the Earth Day collection on the website, and lasts from today (April 17, 2017) until July 1st, 2017.
