TravTab looks to cash in on the pain of paying for that all important holiday

travtabWe have written before about travel startups, but perhaps now it’s time to talk about the least fun part of taking a holiday.

Holidays are supposed to be fun and exciting to plan, argue about beach vs hiking, and then eventually book, all the while giving you that feeling of anticipation you probably haven’t had since you were a child looking forward to Christmas. Then, after the period of ‘is it holiday time yet’, the holiday itself comes with relaxation, fun, liberation, sunburn, that innocent-looking child who stole your handbag, and souvenirs no one wants. However getting ready for a holiday can sometimes be more stressful than the stress you’re taking a holiday from.

Part of this is getting the holiday booked and paid for when it’s convenient for you and coordinating with family or friends who are sharing the cost, forgetting to pay on time, complaining that their remaining balance isn’t correct...

TravTab, with its simple answer to this very problem.

Dublin-based startup TravTab (part travel tech, part fintech) is an app that provides a flexible method of paying for your holiday, allowing multiple credit or debit cards to be used interchangeably, and deleted easily; handling group payments, which even includes the option to pay anonymously so that only the person who set up the booking can see who has paid what; and gives the ability to either schedule payments daily, weekly, or monthly, or to pay what you can, when you want.

TravTabCEO and founder Alan Masterson, first came up with the idea which soon became TravTab through a personal experience booking a holiday.

TravTab is designed for travel agents too. The system can be easily integrated into a travel agent’s own booking systems, making payment simpler and quicker for the customer, and reducing the time that staff have to spend with the customer taking payment.

The ultimate aim for TravTab is for it to be used worldwide, but it will launch initially in Ireland and then (fingers crossed) be rolled out internationally.

Anything that does away with the ‘Dave, you still haven’t paid your share!’ phone call, we suspect will do well. Don’t you?
