Trip Loop, the innovative travel management software trusted by leading global tour operators, has been awarded for the ‘Best Travel Technology Product of 2019’ at the World Youth and Student Travel Conference (WYSTC). Held by the WYSE Travel Corporation, WYSTC is a worldwide conference for global leaders and stakeholders in the youth and student travel industry. The prestigious Global Youth and Travel Awards (GYTA) are presented annually to recognize outstanding performers in the youth, student, and educational travel industry.
“We’re humbled to have Trip Loop recognized as a game-changing solution for the youth travel industry,” said Trip Loop co-founder and CEO, Diego De Stefano. “This award is a recognition of our commitment to innovate the experience of travel providers and travelers,” he said.
Trip Loop was created from De Stefano’s experience leading group travel in more than 20 countries in his early college days. Trip Loop helps boost productivity and revenue opportunities for multi-day tour operators, and helps group travelers easily access their itineraries and communicate with their guides and one another, keeping them safer and better organized. Tour leaders can focus more on creating life-transforming experiences for the students, because Trip Loop helps automate daily tasks.
Darryl Newby, who is a member of the panel of judges for GYTA and co-founder of Welcome To Travel said, “When I was judging at the GYTA, Trip Loop immediately stood out. They have tour operators and safety at the heart of their product.”
This award helps Trip Loop position itself as the leading platform for group travel management, especially when it comes to student and youth travel. Earlier this year, Trip Loop solidified a commercial partnership and strategic investment from Japan Travel Bureau (JTB), one of the largest tour operators in the world. JTB seeks to increase company wide productivity and revenue by servicing their travelers through Trip Loop. Since its founding, in 2017, Trip Loop has experienced international growth with dozens of international leading tour operators. As Newby said, “Communication is key to running any successful tour, and Trip Loop has created the perfect platform for this.”
