A couple of days ago we drove to Raanana to meet Elliot and Yotam, the founders of Tripcart.
It was interesting to meet another Israeli travel startup, and to find the similarities and differences. I think both companies started from the same motivation: the love for travel and the vision of creating a better solutions for travellers.
Other than that we took very different paths: Tripcart focus is planning, TripTouch focus is “on the go”; they cover the US - we are worldwide; they create their own original content while we aggregate and integrate from other sources; they are into family vacations and we approach independent and business travellers.
We both face similar challenges with competition and investments. I wish Tripcart success- and maybe we’ll find a way to help each other along the way.
