Tripkada to launch iOS app in its first travel meet-up for 2018

Good news to all travelers, especially iOS users. Tripkada, the country’s first and largest trip-pooling platform, will finally launch its much-awaited iOS app. And the people behind it invite you to witness the unveiling during their first travel meet-up in 2018.

Mingle with fellow travelers and listen to travel experts on February 7, Wednesday, at the QBO Innovation Hub in Makati City. The fun starts at 7 p.m. If you’re up for the challenge, gather your friends and sign up as a 5-man team for the night’s Travel Quiz Contest. Contest registration costs Php500 per group. Free luxury hotel stays and many more prizes await.

Through the launch, Tripkada aims to make trip-pooling accessible to more people. The team has been patiently waiting for the release of their app’s iOS version. “It’s finally here,” says Growth Marketing Head JP Bayang, “[and] we are very much excited to bring Filipinos closer to traveling.”

Tripkada is a Philippine-made online platform that allows users to book their dream vacation on a budget and on-the-go. Think uber-pooling for trips and adventures. By introducing trip-pooling, the startup seeks to relieve you of the hassle that comes with planning your itinerary or going through individual bookings for transportation and lodging.

With Tripkada, you can seamlessly choose from trips organized by fellow travelers to popular tourist destinations within the archipelago. You could be traversing Mt. Pulag or surfing the waves in Baler alongside other avid thrill-seekers just with a simple click of a button.
