About us

In 2005, two restless entrepreneurs founded a startup in the heart of one of the world’s travel hot spots—Athens, Greece. Initially called travelplanet24, our online travel agency is one of the largest and most recognized leaders in the industry. Tripsta is preferred by more than a million loyal travellers throughout the 50+ global markets that we presently operate in.

Philipp Brinkmann, Co-founder & CEO, and Kristof Keim, Co-founder, set out to make their idea a reality by establishing the niche market of selling Greek ferry tickets online to tourists. As their business grew, so did their dreams. Their focus on ferry tickets expanded to include plane, train and car rentals and they successfully entered new markets. The startup quickly evolved into a growth company and was renamed to tripsta.

Ηeadquartered in Athens, our committed team of over 200 passionate travel geniuses work to ensure that you reach your destination with guaranteed low prices and dedicated support. Our booking engine processes more than two million travel requests per minute to provide you with the most up-to-date options and prices available. We collect over 100 gigabytes (that’s equal to roughly 50,000 songs worth) of travel data daily and use it to make your search and booking process a seamless and intuitive experience!

We’re proud of our company’s diversity and the multilingual support we’re able to give our customers because of it. We are constantly innovating to add value to your journey and we strive to offer great experiences to online travelers anywhere in the world.
