Over the last couple of months you might have noticed that I have been promoting Trip Easel. They are a relatively new player in the travel market and may spark some questions or curiosity concerning what they are all about. You may wonder who they are, and what my role in this partnership is – something that isn’t often explained in the online business world.
Who Is Trip Easel?
Trip Easel is a travel-booking site which is supported by a team of passionate individuals who want to change the world through promoting sustainable tourism. Using their own knowledge as well as pairing up with over 100 travel bloggers and industry experts, they have created a wealth of information to provide about booking travel.
How Do I Book A Vacation?
Here Is How It Works:
- On your browser head to TripEasel.com
- Pick a travel destination you are interested in visiting
- Pay the online booking fee (Ask me for a promotional code!)
- You are then paired with a travel blogger who helps you plan your dream vacation
- Your holiday is then sent out for quotes and booked through travel agents for the lowest price (optional)
- You are sent a trip itinerary and will have access to it offline. Notifications will be provided for trip activities, accommodations, cuisine bookings, and transportation throughout your journey.
- You go on your trip!
The Travel Bloggers
The travel bloggers who work with Trip Easel are individuals who have been to numerous countries and have had some of the most amazing travel experiences. Since many of them are part-time or full-time travel bloggers – travel is their life. They know the good, the bad and the ugly of all the destinations they have been to by having access to so many travel bloggers from many different parts of the world – each one is an expert on different geographic regions. Travel bloggers have either traveled extensively, slow-traveled or lived in any of the destinations that you want to travel to. Depending on the destination you are interested in, Trip Easel will connect you with an expert on that location.
Why Book With A Travel Blogger?
What makes travel blogging so exciting, is that we visit many destinations and get to share those exciting experiences and destinations with you through our blog posts and social media. What makes those trips unique is that we often travel off the beaten path, and get some very rare travel experiences. We want to inspire you to leave fear behind, travel safely and to experience the world as we do.
Booking travel can be stressful. With the amount of online resources available, you can spend hours planning out a vacation, and the trip may not even be successful. You also might spend hours looking online only to become discouraged and give up. If you are booking through a regular travel agent, the itineraries are often structured, giving you a standard experience that hundreds or thousands of people have already done.
By pairing with an experienced travel blogger who has experienced the location, you are more likely to find out the best places to go along with things you must see and do. On top of that, they also know the things to avoid and have vast experiences to share, since they have lived the culture. By talking with you, they are able to find out what personally interests you and determine what itinerary would make your dream or ideal vacation a reality. Travel bloggers are able to tailor your trip to your interests. By booking through Trip Easel, you get the human factor coupled with tips and tricks for the road that you don’t have to learn the hard way. This cuts down on the negative vacation experiences and makes sure every trip is a success. As a guarantee, Trip Easel offers a refund policy for anyone who is not satisfied with their travel booking experience.
Why Am I Working With Them?
Simply, I am one of the 100 travel bloggers they chose to partner with. But more importantly, I am working with Trip Easel because I believe in them and the team behind it. Trip Easel is passionate about travel, and their initiatives on sustainable and ecotourism initiatives resonate with my own.
By booking a vacation through them, you are in turn working with me, the travel blogger, and creating employment opportunities. Additionally, you are then creating jobs for locals in the countries you are traveling to by supporting their travel agents and by boosting the local economies.
Want To Know More?
