Trip­shelf is essen­tially an on­line mar­ket­place for hol­i­day pack­ages con­nect­ing tour op­er­a­tors and trav­ellers. Tour op­er­a­tors can list their hol­i­day pack­ages on Trip­shelf. com and the trav­ellers can dis­cover, com­pare, en­quire or buy these pack­ages from the tour op­er­a­tors. Dhruv Raj

Gupta, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer and Co-founder, Trip­shelf elab­o­rates on the ben­e­fits that travel part­ners can get out of Trip­shelf and says, “Firstly, the pri­mary growth fac­tor is that the tour op­er­a­tors get an on­line plat­form. Sec­ondly, there is an in­crease in con­ver­sion per­cent­age of on­line en­quires converting to book­ings from 0-1 per cent to 7-10 per cent. Thirdly, the agents have a brand on­line which is more like an on­line mall where the agents can dis­play their prod­uct, use their logo and cus­tomer re­views and then gain trac­tion from it.” Cur­rently, the com­pany is cater­ing to 325 es­tab­lished busi­nesses on­line, pro­mot­ing their hol­i­days from the near­est do­mes­tic des­ti­na­tions like Manali and Ker­ala to the far­thest des­ti­na­tion like Antarc­tica.

Gupta fur­ther in­forms that the com­pany has launched a mas­sive Di­wali Dhamaka Sale and through this cam­paign, it aims to reach out to around five mil­lion hol­i­day go­ers across In­dia. “The idea is that from Septem­ber 15 to Oc­to­ber 15, ev­ery time a con­sumer

books on Trip­shelf for a tour op­er­a­tor’s hol­i­day pack­age, they get an as­sured gift which could be a smart TV, mo­bile phone or re­frig­er­a­tor etc. thus adding on to the fes­ti­val sea­son,” adds Gupta.
