The Tripadee Travel Group is a travel technology business. Our mission is to connect accommodation hosts with customers looking for a special place to stay. We use our technology to promote those special places through our portfolio of online travel brands, and then complete and manage the booking with our Bedful booking system, wherever the transaction happens: on the host's website, over the phone, on one of our channels, or elsewhere. Our headquarters are in Shoreditch, London, where a growing team of talented travel professionals oversee the development of the portfolio, build relationships with travel businesses throughout the UK and beyond, and continually refine our products to ensure we are ahead of the game.
Our longest-established brand is Cool Camping, founded by Tripadee CEO Jonathan Knight in 2006. With tent camping not well catered for and glamping not yet 'invented', Cool Camping tapped into a specific target audience, bringing beautiful places to camp and unique glamping accommodation to the attention of this sizeable niche audience. It is now the go-to brand for tent camping, and one of the leading online campsite booking engines in the UK. Since then, the portfolio of brands has grown, with each aimed at a specific travel sub-vertical. Consumer travel brands include British accommodation website Cool Places, luxury outdoor accommodation brand Glampingly, and non-curated camping and caravanning website I Love This Campsite, currently in development.
We see a huge opportunity to grow the Tripadee Travel Group, particularly in the verticals of camping and glamping, where online bookings are in a high-growth phase. We will continue to develop our existing portfolio of brands, and will add to them wherever we see an opportunity to develop a specific market.
