Who Are We?

TripAlytics is a small Traveltech company operating in Port Stephens NSW since 2012.

Our search technology helps users find accommodation and book direct.

Our mission is to help steer the Tourism Economy away from Online Travel Agents towards booking directly with Providers.

By helping accom Providers avoid large middleman commissions we also help their Guests get better accom and lower prices.

Giant Global Traveltech

Online Travel Agents (OTA) such as and Expedia are middlemen and they are very good at what they do.

We think they are an important part of the Tourism Economy; however, we also think they have too much market power.

For example, before Wotif became part of Expedia Group, Providers paid a 10% commission. Providers now pay 15-20% for essentially the same service.

Avoiding big commissions is good for Providers and Guests; the Tourism Economy and the broader community.

These global giants are largely foreign-owned and employ very few Australians; pay very little tax and send most of their profits to shareholders overseas.

In addition to high commissions, OTAs use their enormous resources and market power to ensure that Providers appear at the bottom of internet search results.

The only way that many smaller and independent Providers such as motels and caravan parks can get noticed is to list on the OTA platforms.

TripAlytics can help. Our content and marketing platforms are highly optimised for Google Ads and Paid Search. We get Providers noticed.

(We get the irony, by-the-way, of using giant global Adtech to push back against giant global Traveltech.)
