itravel focuses on innovative customer loyalty and content marketing


Dear Companists,

The core of our technological approach is to place the customer at the heart of the travel booking process so that travel can be configured according to their individual preferences and they have access to unique and exceptional travel experiences.

The cornerstone of our marketing strategy is customer loyalty. This is already done through the individual service available via chat and by linking the customer's profile with the experiences best suited to their needs.

With two launches this week, we are combining two powerful tools to make this strategy work:


The itravel insider program - innovative bonus system

While traditional bonus systems only reward customers for having spent as much as possible and exclusively give them the opportunity to convert bonus points into non-cash rewards or (limited) mileage flights, we are taking new paths that focus on the travel experience, both in terms of earning points and benefits for the travel customers who become "itravel insiders" in our program:

  • itravel insiders gain access to new, unique tours as well as exclusive experience packages, offers, additional services and upgrades with every holiday.
  • The membership includes an annual travel insurance at no extra cost.
  • A globally valid SIM card facilitates communication even in remote travel countries
  • Recommendations and qualitative feedback from itravel insiders are taken into account and recognized with discounts on the next booked trip.
  • As an itravel insider, you not only receive travel guides for every requested trip, but also a subscription to the regularly published "for that moment" travel inspirations: a high-quality volume with exclusive reports on some of the most unusual and interesting travel destinations on the globe,
  • The core of our technological approach is to place the customer at the heart of the travel booking process so that travel can be configured according to their individual preferences and they have access to unique and exceptional travel experiences.

for that moment - travel inspirations

The tourism market is flooded with magazines financed by advertising, which do not meet the demand for really interesting, authentic reporting, because their functional principle is based on advertorials, in which journalists are often invited to travel to the country and no objective and honest reportage is produced as a result. Exceptions can only be found with the highest quality publishing brands such as Geo or National Geographic.

We have consistently perfected our recipes for success from online communication, in which we focus on authentic reports and a variety of topics, and with for that moment - Reiseinspirationen, which appears as a print magazine, we have put together a high-quality volume that offers a clear added value between magazine and coffee table book in terms of insight, reports and spectacular visual material and is free of advertising in every respect. 

The editorial team that we use to produce this volume uses professional experience gained at leading newspaper, magazine and television media companies. We do not rely on SEO tricks in the editorial department, but on really valuable content, which is favoured by the search algorithms of Google and other search engines.

The digital ePUB edition of the magazine is also used online, so that itravel can systematically leverage its data-driven content marketing across the full range of effective media (video, social media, editorial content, subscription print products).

Handelsblatt article about Glamping in South Africa

The strategy of relying on authentic content and destination expertise for experience-oriented types of travel has also paid off. In an article on glamping, i.e. luxurious camping in the wilderness, the Handelsblatt newspaper in South Africa has published a prominent article on itravel.

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
