The Partner Idea

Collaboration starts in our minds!

 

TreeTumbo allows our members, who are potentially new customers of yours, to put their ideas for their next trip, tour, activity, event etc., in a TumboTask. A TumboTask works in a similar way to an enquiry from a guest which you’d usually receive via email, social media or telephonically etc. The difference is that the guest doesn’t have to click through thousands of websites to eventually find you. And you don’t have to pay up to 30% of your normal rate to a third party, just to be seen! Instead, as a Partner you can look for TumboTasks which specifically suit your offering, or you can choose to receive automatic notifications whenever a member is looking for something within your realm of expertise. You can submit as many quotes as you like, tailoring your offering to the specific needs of the member as you see fit. If you’ve made the best (not necessarily the cheapest!) offer, you’ll be chosen as the winner by the member.  

You finalise all details of the TumboTask directly with the member. Payment is processed directly to you, the Partner. All members have the option of using their TreeTumbo Wallet for payment of TumboTasks. A quick transfer without fees! No commission or fees are calculated or charged by Your Travel Center. We’re sure that you as a Partner value these advantages and will therefore include an appropriate discount for our members. Discover how TreeTumbo works for our members.

We created our Partner Directory for Members who know exactly what they’re looking for. We’re convinced that direct contact between the provider and the customer should go without saying. Access to the Partner Directory is exclusively for active members of Your Travel Center. They contact you directly and book with you directly. You can have up to 10 “fee-free” Directory Listings in Your Travel Center. We’re sure that you as a partner value the advantages of direct bookings and will therefore include an appropriate discount for our members in the directory.

 

Because nothing works without networking, we’ve created the Affiliate Programme for Members and Partners. The more Members and Partners who are part of our network, the more advantages everyone has. As a Partner, you qualify to become part of the Affiliate Programme. You will be playing an active role in a globally growing network whilst generating additional income. Recommend Your Travel Center to your family, friends and guests, or recommend a new Partner and receive 20% of the value of every paid membership signed through you.

READ ABOUT OUR STORY AND IDEAS

Since 2005, we rented out holiday accommodation and cars and arranged tours in Germany and then later, in South Africa as well. At the same time, as an ICT & Business Consultancy, we were closely following the development of booking engines and online travel marketing. As service providers in the industry, we always paid higher commissions to get any bookings secured. This development, especially in lieu of the travel businesses, led us to think about alternatives for the industry. We wanted to avoid the high commissions of up to 30% for both the guests and the service providers and to reinstate direct contact with the guests.

The question of how one avoids commission charges of up to 30% may seem simple, but is actually very complex.

It became clear after months of intensive research, that there are only two large conglomerates which rule over 90% of the travel industry. This means that whomever thinks that searching for hours and hours for a better deal may result in finding a better offer, should know beforehand which of the approximately 200 booking sites belong to which of the global players.

We also realised that most of the booking systems used by the hotels, guesthouses etc. have a channel manager. The channel manager delivers the room or tour price automatically into the booking portals. Usually, only one price is determined and then delivered to every single portal. Only very few providers have different prices per portal. As a guest, you can therefore surf from one booking site to another and will always find the same price.

Our Story short...

Co-Founder & Managing Director

There is only one way to save time wasted with senseless searching for the best price. Contact the service provider directly and ask for their price for a direct booking. Most establishments will give you a discount if you do this. They save on the commission cost and get to build a direct relationship with you as a guest. What could be better? Unfortunately, searching for the direct contact details of the provider and then waiting for an offer with a discounted price can take time and delay your whole booking process.

With this in mind, we came up with a solution in 2015 to ease the entire booking process and this is what we are giving you access to on the Your Travel Center portal. Use our TreeTumbo Tool and post a TumboTask in just two minutes. You describe your travel requirements in a TumboTask and our intelligent system invites Your Travel Center partners and other providers in your desired destination, to send you their best possible offer. You choose the best offer for you and then book directly with the provider.

As a Premium Member, you can see the Direct Booking Discount offered by the providers in our Partner Directory and can then contact them and book directly.

We’re proud to introduce you to Your Travel Center. We’d like to invite you to explore our portal and to become a member of our global community and hopefully, to share your travel experiences as we enjoy our many adventures together!
