We began building the definitive reference resource aiding friends group travel, launching TRIP in Spring 1993. The quarterly travel guide served group planners, mailing to 60,000+ known planners quarterly. The Keeper Reference evolved into TRIPinfo Quarterly Digital Issues.

That audience migrated to TRIPinfo.com in 1996...first year of the commercial internet. Today, more leisure group trip planners use TRIPinfo.com for logistics and details research than any group travel online reference. And they book 10x-375x/year the average family on travel.

By 2000 the company began its weekly email newsletter. Today, the TRIPinfo Digital Platform is TRIPinfo.com Online + TRIPinfo Weekly Newsletter + TRIPinfo Quarterly Digital Issues. They form a comprehensive reference group planners use for their trips.

OUR MISSION

To research and provide quality travel reference to Leisure Group Trips Planners—Online + Email Newsletters + Quarterly Digital Issues.
