Jun 20, 2019 - This is a moment we have been waiting for the last 2 year.
Every-once in awhile a disruptive platform or app comes along that changes everything in travel.
TourDragon is a disruptive travel platform that we believe will reinvent the way Travelers book their holidays online..
We are introducing 4 revolutionary booking methods at our platform:
The first one is A breakthrough reverse auction for tours. Where travelers choose the holiday they love and tour operators cancompete live to offer the best price..The second one is A 0% commission tours and holidays platform.
The third is a disruptive booking method that enable you to save and receive a better deal even if you have already booked your holiday.
The fourth is one request and multiple quotes with just one click in our platform.
We are calling it TOUR DRAGON.
We believe thet Tour Dragon will not only change the way travelers book their tour but will change the entire online travel industry.
Before we get into Tour Dragon let us talk about the current methods top tour operators - so they say - are offering now. Viator, GetYourGuide and Expedia are now the big players who control and monopolies online travel market.
The main problem that they are just middlemen with all the problems of a middlemen:
- Charging local tour operator and travelers a fortune commission between 30 to 60 %. We have been listening to lots of complaints from operators and travelers. Customers are almost paying the double price!
- Local tour operators are just competing to offer the highest commission, not the best service as they should be. Offering the highest commission so they can simply just exist.
- Customers imagining they are benefiting local tour operators. It's almost Not profit to local operators or economies.
this is not fair and against the UN world tourism org goals, Code of ethics.
- Having no interest in personal service or customized tours or whatever travelers want. They deal with travelers as if they were robots,
- Most worst is the hijacking of the brand and all profit of local tour operators.
Sadly, the local companies can not compete with the large companies who spend billion in marketing to continue monopolizing the online travel market and get the maximum out of travelers and tour operators and give nothing to both
We are changing that.
I think they have forgotten that we should think more and care more about travelers and local people and economies not rob them and just being greedy This is not the way we should treat travelers and locals economies.
How we gonna solve it?
To solve the main problem of the high commission and middle man we are introducing a 0% commission tours and holidays platform. Where travelers can
receive a better service and fair price.
One of our goals is to be able to help local tour operators, encourage travel start up worldwide.
The second product is a breakthrough reverse auction Where travelers choose or list the holiday they love and tour operators can compete live in a reverse auction to offer the best price...
The 3rd: is get a better deal and save if you are already booked. This is for travellers who already booked with any-middle man company.
They will just send us a copy of your confirmation with them which is always free cancellation and we will get you the same tour from same local tour operator at a much better price.
The 4th option called one request -multiple quotes. Here travellers can submit one request with one click and We will get you multiple quotes from the top local tour operators for your customized request.
