Tripology Receives $1.25 Million for a Travel Site w/Travel Agent Assistance
July 19, 2007

Tripology raised $1.25 Million from Ascend Venture Group.

What does Tripology do?

Tripology is a free service for consumers that matches you with a travel agent to assist with your travel.

VCU says:

I find this site and model fascinating. Online travel search and booking has gone through some interesting times, as has the entire travel industry. Originally the pendulum swung from using travel agents to searching and booking online thereby disintermediating travel agents.

As time has passed it appears the travel agent may be back for another chance assuming they are properly connected with a consumer that needs their specialized travel knowledge. That is the premise for Tripology, matching a consumer’s trip/desired itinerary with a travel agent having knowledge of the desired trip.

Another company funded based on the same premise that human interaction does have value if matched properly with the need was a human powered search engine ChaCha.

Go to Tripology and let them know where you want to go and what you want to do, they take it from there. Introductions are made to 3 travel professionals that have specialized knowledge about where you would like to go and do, and all within 24 hours.

Take a look at Tripology.
