TripThirsty Pivots. Relaunches as a One-Stop Directory for Adventure Travel.

TripThirsty which wanted to be Pinterest for travel has pivoted and is relaunching as a one-stop directory for adventure travel.

Today, if you wish to find an adventure trip to join near Bangalore, the options are spread between several meetup.com groups, a few facebook groups and many websites. You could spend all your time googling, and still not find all the amazing options – wildlife photography workshops, reptile handling, women-only camping trips, and tons more. The situation is worse in most other cities.

Although companies like Tushky & PoshVine list some adventure experiences, they are really only scratching the surface of what’s available. Think of us as TripAdvisor for Adventure Experiences – we list everything, and customers can make up their own minds based on ratings and reviews.

TripThirsty is also trying to fix the last-mile issue and will promote the operators among its userbase.

When an operator lists a trip on TripThirsty, we can promote them to targeted subscribers from our 1000-strong user-base of travel enthusiasts.

The company is competing in the same space as Thrillophillia (raised funding last week)Tushky (raised funding from GSF), PoshVine etc.

TripThirsty is currently starting with Bangalore and will expand to other cities later. As far as monetization model is concerned, there are multiple channels – right from lead generation/sales to trip organizers to verified listing fees and commissions from online payments.
