Dutch entrepreneur Jochem Wijnands, who sold his last company to Apple, has launched a new travel tech startup TRVL.
Founder and CEO Wignands sold Prss, a mobile publishing platform to Apple in 2014, and is a former travel photographer at National Geographic. With TRVL, he has released a peer-to-peer travel booking platform after nine months in beta.
The platform allows users to become a “TRVL agent”, personalising travel recommendations among friends and peers and earning commissions through their own bookings and recommendations for friends.
“We’re completely reimagining the travel agent: crowdsourced, collaborative, and trusted.
Throw in a very attractive earning model of up to 10% per booking, and you can see how TRVL will change the way we book our trips online,” said Wijnands.
