Who is TripaSista?

TripaSista is a global listings resource dedicated to women travellers. TripaSista is a one stop shop for where to STAY – EAT – TOUR – RETREAT.  TripaSista is Kim Burgess and Susan Ferguson.

Why list with TripaSista?

Our Directory platform connects women with providers who offer travel related services. TripaSista takes NO BOOKING FEES – women are redirected to your services via your website link and contact form.

Do you as a service provider currently pay booking fees? Let’s crunch the numbers for you. For example – say your property has a 50% occupancy rate and sells for $100 US per night. A conservative 5% booking fee costs you the provider – $700 US per annum. At TripaSista you can list your business for $75 US per annum and all customers are redirected to you!

Who can list?

In the spirit of promoting a community and network of women supporting women, we especially want to include women-operated businesses and services in our Directory. TripaSista is open to listing businesses owned and run by men, as well as women, however our mission is to promote businesses that reflect our values.

How does it work?

Our TripaSista website is a Yelp-style “End to End WordPress Directory”- it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3, (4)!

At the FRONT END – Women Travellers can:-

  1. SEARCH world-wide listings for where to STAY – EAT – TOUR – RETREAT.
  2. LEAVE a TripaSista REVIEW on any individual listing and share travel experiences with other women.
  3. BECOME A MEMBER of our Facebook Group TRIPASISTA TRAVEL TALK and join the conversation!
