Last August 10, Tripkada, a mobile app where travelers can join group tours, was officially launched at Boteco and BBZ Bar and Restaurant by a local travel startup, FlipTrip.
Since they started in December 2015, FlipTrip has been organizing fun meetups where enthusiasts gather and celebrate the love for travel. The 6th travel meetup was extra special for FlipTrip and the rest of the travel community as Tripkada was launched amidst crazy games and wonderful socials.
I was fortunate enough to be invited in Tripkada’s launch. The night started with a booze from Miller Genuine Draft and some pica-pica food from Boteco Brasil.
There were a number of fun activities that everyone enjoyed.
There were also trivia and travel related games that tested the wanderlust in us.
Team FlipTrip hosted the event with so much energy and made everyone feel very welcomed even for first-timers like me.
Aside from meeting new and familiar faces in the blogging community, we were able to take home amazing prizes from the event’s generous sponsors.
As mentioned earlier, Tripkada is a mobile app that can be downloaded in Google Play (iOS version coming soon). Basically, Tripkada enables travelers to explore a destination without the need of booking an entire tour package.
Yes, anyone can join a trip where you will only have to book for your slot. Aside from more opportunity to wander, travelers can save more money and meet like-minded individuals when booking trips with Tripkada.
April Cuenca, FlipTrip CEO, expressed her excitement with Tripkada’s launch and asked the community to give feedbacks with the app still on beta release.
