In the latest campaign to get holiday-makers to return to Bali, Melbourne-based travel website The Bali Bible has teamed up with tourism partners to run a competition to win a super-luxury Bali holiday valued at $70,000.
From the founders of popular The Bali Bible, TRAVLR curates huge volumes of recommendations, personalises these to specific interests and allows seamless planning, booking and sharing - all in one simple platform.
The start-up, which now operates in Bali and Fiji, plans to launch into New Zealand, Seychelles, Indonesia and Ibiza.
It is looking to integrate blockchain functionality, artificial intelligence and augmented reality to the travel planning and booking experience going forward, said a press release.
The platform now curates huge volumes of recommendations, personalises these to specific interests and allows planning, booking and sharing.
Travlr, a travel recommendation and booking site by the founders of The Bali Bible, has raised US$5 million in its Series A round of funding.
It secured its first round of funding from a syndicate of New Zealand investors via Suubee, a platform connecting investors, traders, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs.
>>Travlr, a travel marketing, trip curation, and booking platform, has raised a $3.7 million, or $5 million Australian, in Series A funding from private investors.
The company has been around for 2.5 years but is an outgrowth of The Bali Bible, a travel guide that emphasized the social sharing of recommendations. It draws more than 2 million monthly visits to its 290,000 pages of user-generated recommendations, it said.
Founded by husband and wife duo Simon and Lani te Hennepe, the business started out as a PDF document Ms te Hennepe created about Bali for her friends and family based on all their travels there.
