Travefy and Tripeese share a similar vision and goal of providing tools to solve the coordination headaches of group travel
Lincoln, NE (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
Travefy, the easiest online group travel planner, was founded in 2012 and released its full product beta in late 2013. Through Travefy, users can collaborate on trip details, book travel deals, and collect shared expenses. Travefy currently serves over 8 million activities, restaurants, accommodations, and flights, allowing users to build and book their perfect trip itinerary.
Tripeese was founded in early 2013 by Wharton and Harvard Business School students Rodrigo Boscolo and Matheus Riolfi. Their dynamic trip planner was released in mid-2013 via partnerships with Expedia, Inc. and HomeAway, Inc.
“Travefy and Tripeese share a similar vision and goal of providing tools to solve the coordination headaches of group travel,” notes Travefy co-founder & CEO David Chait. “Rodrigo and Matheus have built a strong user base and immense travel expertise. We’re thrilled to welcome them and all Tripeese users to the Travefy family.”
“We’re excited for this next chapter of Tripeese and believe strongly in Travefy’s comprehensive software and vision to change the way groups travel,” said Boscolo.
Travefy acquired Tripeese for an undisclosed sum and will transition Tripeese accounts onto Travefy’s platform. Boscolo and Riolfi will continue to support Travefy in an advisory role.
