New online platform allows travellers to connect with independent agents

Tripmule is an online platform which allows travellers to connect with independent travel agents.

Founded by entrepreneur, Louis Skoutellas, with funding and mentoring from Virgin Start-Ups, the company is to initially launch in the UK market for 2015 before expanding to other major European markets such as France and Germany.


Skoutellas believes that “customer service and human interaction can never be replaced by any form of technology” and so the company aims to build a product that marries the online world with the ‘physical brick & mortar’ business.


Skoutellas said: "Consumers have also been led to believe they are receiving the ultimate deals from large online travel comparing websites but on the contrary – the order in which they list their deals is greatly influenced by the commission they are taking from those particular companies. That’s why we offer a no-frills service that fairly benefits both the consumer and the independent travel agent, by only charging the travel agent for leads and the consumer nothing.


"The way Tripmule works is simple. The consumer specifies where they want to go and has the choice to offer more details about what they desire, whether it is staying by a sandy beach or a boutique hotel nearby the best gastronomic delights. With the comment box provided, consumers can add on any extras they’d like as if speaking to a real person – and be as specific as they want.

They are then matched to a group of travel agents who specialise in their travel requests. The travel agents respond within the Tripmule dashboard, which then allows the consumer to browse the commitment-free offers and make a choice for their dream holiday."
