trip.me isn’t like a normal tour operator or travel agent. We connect you directly with local agencies which not only saves you time and money, it puts you in contact with the people who know your destination the best. You can let them know exactly what you’re looking for and receive the most up-to-date, accurate information about your trip. Since you’re skipping the extra step of going through a third party reseller, you’ll save time and money, too.
With trip.me you’ll pay for your whole trip with just one click. There are no nasty surprises awaiting you later. We provide a trusted platform by offering secure credit card payments to a reputable company in a stable and trusted country, Germany, where our headquarters are located. Our payment method also eliminates the need to pay several different agencies.
At trip.me, we personally select all of the local agencies we work with to ensure they live up to our standard of experience, knowledge, and passion for the job. Each and every trip we put on our website has been run past our own panel of travel experts who judge it for uniqueness, adventure, excitement and much more.
