The meteoric growth of sharing and collaborative consumption in travel is creating new ways for people to connect and to exchange services. We envision Touristlink as the largest online community of frequent travelers and small travel providers.
During the past several years numerous marketplaces focused on tours and activities have been launched but none have been able to generate any significant traction on the demand side. Touristlink is different - we are getting a million organic page view a month and the number of new members and of daily active users has grown at a rate close to 100% a month/month during the last 5 months. On the supply side we have over 7000 small travel providers signed up and active on the platform.
