TildaTravel launches Australian first – consumer travel and travel money one stop shop

April 11, 2019 Financial No Comments Email Email

Mark Tarring, founder and CEO of TildaTravel, has today announced the launch of a new Australian traveltech and fintech platform, under the travel and travel money brand TildaTravel.Firmly focussed on modern families, TildaTravel makes it easy for customers to book complex
holidays for extended families. Named for CEO Mark Tarring’s six year old daughter Matilda, the firm has kids, and their happiness, at its heart.

“Our Tilda’s eye view of travel focuses on the family experience. Our question is always,
‘Would that make Tilda happy?’ TildaTravel cares for the increasing and under served trend
for big families to holiday together, including grandparents, siblings, cousins, a kaleidoscope
of step family connections and pets.”.

Mark Tarring, CEO, TildaTravel
The TildaTravel platform is evolving to take the traditional experience of working with a truly expert travel agent, automate it, add scale and an overlay of digital data analysis and AI and then deliver a seamless, frictionless family holiday planning and booking user experience.

“The TildaTravel team were previously behind Thomas Cook Money Australia. We gained all
the knowledge of working an historic, 178 year old travel brand and pioneer. Now we are
bringing that expertise to TildaTravel with a family focussed high tech twist. We are delighted
to have launched and to bring a new level of service to Australian travel consumers and
excited for expansion through Asia in 2019.”.

The brand will of course continue to offer a world class travel insurance product and to honour
policies issued by Thomas Cook Money Australia. TildaTravel insurance will be available both
directly to consumers at and via travel wholesale and travel agency partners.
Partners can offer the insurance service under the TildaTravel brand or under a white label

‘The TildaTravel insurance product meets the needs of the modern travelling family with
travel insurance options tailored to meet a variety of household budgets. We also provide a
range of great extras including car hire excess cover and specialist cruise and ski packages.
There are lots of thoughtful family extras with TildaTravel – first and foremost dependent kids
are insured for free. We also give every family a free SIM for low cost high usage data to stay
in touch as you roam without nasty data shocks when you get home.”.

TildaTravel’s proprietary API-based technology platform efficiently aggregates multiple digital travel and financial services. Within one easy to use site the intuitive customer journey will include inspiration and planning; booking flights, accommodation, car rentals and attractions; and purchasing travel insurance, prepaid travel cards and foreign currency. TildaTravel is launching with a host of leading travel partners including HomeAway (Stayz), Hertz, Travelex, Cruise1st, Collinson Group and Telna.

“From villas on the Gold Coast to cruises on the Mediterranean, free travel SIMs packed with
data, local currency to spend and insurance to keep you safe on your trip, TildaTravel is a
one stop shop to easily book every element of your dream family holiday.”.

Mark Tarring, CEO, TildaTravel
