TripRebel | Overview

Pitch Video


Named "Best Start-up of 2015" by the EU, TripRebel enables travelers to book hotels while benefiting from reduced room rates later. Intelligent algorithms check the initial booking every day, and if the hotel lowers the room rate later, TripRebel pays back the full price difference or provides users with free upgrades.

Key Investment Facts TripRebel

  

The use of information technology has changed the hotel industry completely over the last few years. Today, hotels use modern systems that constantly optimize room rates, occupancy, and profitability. Analyses have shown that 8 out of 10 hotels change their room rates multiple times within the last 30 days before a guest arrives. Consequently, it is becoming increasingly difficult for travelers to choose a suitable hotel for a good price.

As the search for hotel rooms has become more difficult, travelers have changed their behavior accordingly. According to a study by GfK in collaboration with Google, travelers in Germany spend an average 24 days online before they make their final decision on a specific hotel offer. Nonetheless, approx. 80 % of travelers ultimately pay too much for their hotel room.

Portals like Trivago have been unable to solve this problem. Indeed, they show only the best price available at the time of the search. TripRebel, on the other hand, monitors the market and the changing rates. If the room rate decreases after booking, TripRebel automatically cancels the previous booking and books the new offer. As a result, TripRebel provides users with ten times the saving of conventional price comparison portals.

 

 

This innovation has helped TripRebel raise awareness around the globe. TripRebel has been selected as the "start-up of the week" by The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times called the beta version of TripRebel one of the "hottest travel saving tips" in 2014. In mid-2015, we received our most important award when the European Commission named us the "Best Start-up of 2015." In addition, TripRebel has already attracted strategic partners such as ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator and experienced angel investors.

 

 

Still, TripRebel has not only received awards, but also seen a remarkable business development. In fact, revenue from booking has increased by 147 % per quarter since our official launch in Q4 2014. The number of monthly visitors increased even more sharply in the same period and has now reached 10,000.

We will keep boosting this growth in 2016. TripRebel has been selected from more than 300 start-ups that applied for the ProSiebenSat.1 Accelerator program. In other words, TripRebel has not only attracted a powerful strategic partner, but also has a media budget of €500,000 at its disposal now. Consequently, TripRebel will reach millions of people in Germany through its first TV campaign in Q1 2016.

But German travelers are not the only ones interested in TripRebel. Since our website's launch, foreign visitors – especially those from the U.S. – have accounted for 53 % of all website traffic. This proves that TripRebel possesses a globally scalable product.

Hotels may also benefit from our platform in the future. By scaling up our business, we are also helping hotels handle demand more efficiently. When hotels have free rooms, they may offer these rooms to our customers in the form of upgrades. Only select customers may see the reduced room rate then. In this way, hotels can avoid a negative impact on the market price.
