Culture Trip is the trusted shortcut to booking travel that’s good, and makes you feel good. In one single platform, our customers can discover and book spot-on stays and experiences, hand-picked by a global community of travel experts and local insiders. In 2011, Culture Trip was created to inspire people to go beyond their cultural boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special, unique and meaningful. Fast-forward to 2021, and Culture Trip has become the essential travel companion, having evolved into a global travel e-commerce brand with content at its heart. This is a unique proposition in a market dominated by the more utilitarian online travel agencies (OTAs), user-generated content (UGC) and price-comparison sites.
Culture Trip is different, because, for a decade now, its global community of travel experts and local insiders have hand-picked the world’s best bits to share travel stories and unbiased recommendations, together with curated collections of places to stay, hotels, things to do and experiences that can be booked online. Culture Trip inspires people and enables them to turn this inspiration into reality, all in one place.
We are a diverse team comprising travel experts, engineers, creators, data scientists, marketeers, media specialists and more, across offices in London, NYC, and Tel Aviv. In addition, we work with a global network of hundreds of freelance content creators who share their insider knowledge and insights on the places they know well.
Every month, Culture Trip attracts millions of visitors to its site; app downloads have leapt to almost 3 million; social followers have increased to more than 8 million, and our videos have been viewed more than 2 billion times. Since 2019, we have won more than 30 awards for our inspirational content, and our work for brand partners and commercial clients.
Founded in 2011 and after four years evolving the concept, Culture Trip secured seed funding of $2 million in 2015, Series A funding of $20 million in 2016, a funding injection of $80 million in 2018 and, in August 2020, we secured additional funding to drive further growth.
