Looking for a booking?
Millennials are not quite so fickle as they seem. Yes, they'll check your price across the web, but if your Price Check is accurate, you have nothing to fear. In fact, proof your transparency will be positively received. Next you'll want to soak up all that juicy data by offering what they crave: the best deal. Finally, don't forget to get them signed up to your loyalty scheme - but beware, if you want to keep them, make sure it's a winner.
The Triptease Platform is built to help hotels take back control of their distribution and increase their direct revenue. The platform identifies a hotel's most valuable guests then works across the entire customer journey - from acquisition to conversion - to personalize the guest experience and make sure they book directly at the hotel. Triptease was co-founded in 2015 by Charlie Osmond, Alasdair Snow and Alexandra Zubko and has offices in London, New York and Singapore. Triptease's most recent funding was lead by British Growth Fund alongside Notion Capital and Episode 1.
