California Online Privacy Protection Act CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy.

Our Inspiration Became Our Story

READ HOW A PROBLEM TURNS INTO A SOLUTION!

Since 2005, the travel industry has been our sole focus. We have experience providing various services like renting out holiday accommodations and vehicles and arranging travel tours in Germany and South Africa.

At the same time, working in an ICT & Business Consultancy, we had the rare chance to follow closely the development of booking engines and online travel marketing. In our role as a travel service provider, we always chose to pay higher and higher commissions for securing our bookings. But the new trends on the market inspired us to think about the alternatives the industry was facing. Our strong business hunch led us into exploring how to avoid the high commissions that guests and service providers were being charged, but more importantly we recognized the need to reinstate direct contact with guests.

In reality, answering the seemingly simple question of how one avoids commission charges of up to 30% is very complex.

After months of intensive research, we realized that just two conglomerates ruled over 90% of the travel industry. So investing hours and searching for the best deal becomes pointless, unless you know in advance which of the roughly 200 booking sites belongs to which of the global players.

Another important finding was that most booking systems used by hotels and guesthouses rely on Channel Managers. Their job entails entering the property or tour price into the booking portals and usually the same price is provided to every single portal. And just like that, price differentiation becomes the exception rather than the rule. The result? A guest, surfing one booking site after another, surfing one booking site after another ends up finding the same price.

The Idea was born...

There is only one way to save time and money and end that pointless search for the best price. Get in touch with the service provider and request a price for direct booking. Most establishments would give a discount if contacted directly not just because they would save on commission costs, but because they would embrace building a relationship with their guests. What could be better than that? Unfortunately, searching for the provider’s contact details and waiting for a discounted price offer takes precious time and delays your booking process.

Considering all this, in 2015 we dreamed up a solution to simplify the entire booking process. And the moment to proudly present it to you has finally come... drumroll... Your Travel Center portal! Use our TreeTumbo Tool and post a TumboTask in under two minutes. Describe your travel requirements in a TumboTask and let our intelligent system invite Your Travel Center partners and other providers for your desired destination to send you their best offers. Choose the best offer and book directly with the provider. Have a good time with your travel buddies, create the craziest itineraries, and share them with others, even before your adventure begins.

As a Premium Member, you can see the Direct Booking Discount offered by our Business Partner providers and you can contact them for a direct booking.
