Today TripActions is thrilled to unveil our new brand to the world and share the story behind our new look and feel with you.

We’re growing fast, and we want to keep our customers and travelers as our focus. Over the last three years, we’ve completed our Series B funding and welcomed customers like Box, Foursquare, Allbirds and more to our growing community. Our customers trust TripActions not just with their business travel needs, but with moving their businesses forward.

We take this responsibility seriously and have been spending time examining each and every action of your travel process — what you love, what you hate, and why you travel in the first place. We had conversations with our customers, surveyed thousands of travelers and heard the same thing over and over again: being there in person is what really matters. It’s the only way to truly move ideas and businesses forward.

This may seem oversimplified — even obvious. But in today’s remote culture of video meetings and conference lines, we’ve dismissed the power of meeting face-to-face. As travelers, you understand the magic of connecting in-person — that’s why you book last-minute red eyes and add extra nights to already-extended hotel stays. It’s all about being there. For the conference, the big meeting and — maybe most importantly — the time you spend with clients and colleagues beyond the meeting. It’s the sidebar over drinks or the chat during a coffee run that changes everything. And nothing beats the energy of being there in-person and building relationships in a way that can't be replicated through a video call or chat.

So we’ve built our platform in service of those travelers — for you. A travel platform built around human connection.

At TripActions, we’re on a mission to power the in-person connections that move people, ideas and businesses forward. From our new logo and website, to our platform’s intuitive interface, every facet of TripActions is dedicated to our deep belief that there’s power in bringing the left brains and the right brains together, in getting the circles and the squares in the same room at the same time to work their magic.

Our dedication to human connection goes far beyond design.

It’s why we expanded internationally to Europe and beyond — because no matter where you are in the world, TripActions has your back.

You’ll see it in our continued dedication to unparalleled and proactive customer service — resolving issues before they become problems, so you can focus on being there as opposed to worrying about how you’ll get there.

You’ll also see it in our completely re-designed iOS app rolling out over the next few weeks. We know your phone is your lifeline on the road, so we set out to build the ultimate travel companion. Thanks to feedback from travelers like you, we’ve made improvements to our iOS app so you have everything you need in your pocket:

At TripActions, our aim is to make your journey stress-free so you can focus on where you’re going, not how you’ll get there.

We’re excited to have you join us on this journey. We promise we’ll be there with you every step of the way.

TripActions — let’s go!
