TMM is an online listing service platform, that allows travellers to directly enquire, book, negotiate and book with local travel experts and suppliers (by revealing the contacts of the suppliers.) worldwide.

We believe if you say you are cutting out the middle Man, then there should be 100% transparency and there should not be any reason to hold ourselves the contacts of the suppliers, Rather offer it direct to the traveller, to deal with the suppliers.

Is that what you thought too?

We charge No commission(s) from the Suppliers or Booking fees from the Travellers, As a result of directly contacting the supplier(s), TMM is also the quickest (Save communication time) and the easiest way to enquire and book. Travellers have the total freedom to contact any number of supplier directly (not 03 and not 5 but any numbers of suppliers) without any restrictions to find out a quote for their experiences.

We certainly doubt if any online service plat offers this fast and diverse approach to link travellers to suppliers. And as a result the experiences only gets more affordable, as a direct advantage of this, travellers can end up Saving money and either travel longer or do something special while on their trip and/or save the money for the next holiday.

TMM, review system keeps the advertiser more competitive, and as a result suppliers will be happy to offer Fair Price and have regular business. TMM allows travellers to find out the real price information on the travel experience(s). Travellers will not find a complete database with this much content, which can be put to use instantly.

Well, there are many websites that makes claims about booking directly with local experts and specialist, so on and so forth, However the outcome is disappointing to both the local supplier and the traveller.

From a Suppliers point of view, they never get an opportunity to show their full potential with the intermediary (mediator, merchant, Dealer or a middle man) involvement, and taking away the big piece of pie. The local Suppliers never gets discovered or has an opportunity to exhibit themselves (leave alone expensive international travel fairs, not even any dedicated forum exists for them to be reviewed).

From a traveller or consumers point of view, the traveller ends up knowing that they never got access to deal with local supplier , rather after a confirmation of payment the suppliers contact gets revealed. And end of the day traveller ends up paying the intermediary (mediator, merchant, Dealer or a middle man) agent/supplier.

By putting both together, we figured out as travellers ourselves, there is no ONE market place we can find a transparent website connecting travellers with local experts and suppliers with the contact information, such as websites, Telephone numbers etc, travellers have to spend hours or even sometimes days on search engines to find such suppliers just to put a destination experience together, and we decided to build ONE market place where they can find book directly their museum tickets, a local sightseeing tour, and even book a through a Local accommodation supplier some place to stay (with not only supporting the local economy but they live there and they know more better”) and booking activities or various experiences.

We, hope the this could bring some form of Global travel equality, where outbound suppliers also learn to market their own living destination as an inbound/incoming supplier, and cater to such interested travellers.

The Definite Difference
What sets us apart, is Our decision to help travellers match their trip needs with suppliers and get the best possible deal without limitations, and with full transparency, where we reveal the suppliers full information. So no more Browsing hoping to get to that page, where you think you are contacting the local supplier and finding out the enquiry stays within the website you are using (for whatever reasons).

NO HITCH! NO CATCH! NO BOOKING FEES FOR TRAVELERS AND NO COMMISSIONS FROM AGENTS OR SUPPLIERS! ABSOLUTELY!

We don’t have intention to trick the traveller into thinking “Yes your local expert will advise BUT we be in-charge ” ūüôā

You may think, well what about reliability of the local supplier and risks? Yes, of-course what is not risky in the world?, ALL SUPPLIERS world-over are risky! that’s why we have Insurance! don’t we ? and lets not forget the REVIEWS. it helps travellers make wise and correct decisions.

So now travellers can find a ONE market Place to Search and Book with Directly with real destination experts and enjoy the Holiday Savings!

So here they are in short!

I. Dealing directly with the Suppliers
TMM is an online service that allows you to directly enquire, book, negotiate and book with local expert and suppliers (accommodation suppliers and travel suppliers.)
II. No commissions and Booking fees
We charge No commission(s) from the Suppliers or Booking fees from the Travellers. And it is absolutely true.
III. Save Communication time and Book fast
TMM is also the quickest and the easiest way to enquire and book. As there are no intermediate communication time involved as a result of the traveller getting in touch directly with the Supplier(s).
IV. Travellers have more choice for the same experience(s)
Travellers have the total freedom to contact any number of supplier directly (not 03 and not 5 but any numbers of suppliers) without any restrictions to find out a quote for their experiences. We certainly doubt if any online service platform offers this fast and diverse approach to link travellers to suppliers.
V. Competitive & real Market value for the Experience (s)
As a result of point point IV (above) the experiences only gets more affordable, as the market offer different suppliers, for similar or same experiences the suppliers have to be more real with the price and offer a competitive price for the travellers. As a direct advantage of this, travellers can end up increasing their holidays savings and travel longer or do something special while on their trip and/or save the money for the next holiday. You are most likely to SAVE somewhere from 15%, 20% to 40% or even more by avoiding the middle man. TMM, review system keeps the advertiser more competitive, and as a result, suppliers will be happy to offer Fair Price and have regular business. TMM allows travellers to find out the real price information on the travel experience(s).

How does it work?
Its very simple, you search the destination or experience(s) you prefer to discover or the activities you wish do. Find your local specialists and  book directly  (No intermediary, mediator, merchant, Dealer or a middle man involvement) with the suppliers. We let you deal directly with your own choice of supplier, with the suppliers own Terms and conditions.

Search & Contact Service Provider

On the home page of TripMatchMaker , you will see 02 search bars, one asking ‚Äúwhat are you looking for?‚ÄĚ and the other asking ‚ÄúLocation‚ÄĚ, ¬†you can chose how to find what you are looking for and where you are looking for.

And if you are not sure where to go, you can search only the experience you wish, and the on the next page see (All listings) which destinations are offering this experience. Also you can just pick your destination and see what’s available in each place. After selecting either by searching Destination or your preferred experience, You’ll be taken to All listings where you can search by type of Experience and to narrow your search use the available Category and TAG options (you can use few tags to see only what you want), and if you wish to use Location then on the MAP you’ll see a search by where you can search also the location options.

Once you have done the search then you can see all the profiles of Service Provider

(advertiser/Supplier or the listings), with their contacts and images etc…and see the specialisation of each Service Provider and if they have a website then you can click and go straight to the Service Providers website and read each suppliers terms and conditions, and gather information on how to book direct with the Service Provider. If you like what is on the website, you can get in touch with Service Provider through the website or from TMM contact information of the supplier or even through a TMM contact Plat form.

If you don’t find what you are looking for, then feel free to contact us. We would be happy to know whats missing and to take immediate action to add such missing Categories and tags.

MAP

The map is another tool to use for your search, Once you have entered the category area where it shows either all listings or some specific kind of listing you have chosen, there is Map on your right hand side, and you will see Location search bar, this will help you narrow down to the destination suppliers you are looking for and with the Tags (where it says filter by Tags) you can narrow down your search even more until you find what you are looking for.

How to Book?
There are a different ways to Book, each service provider has its own terms and conditions, so it is important you read each suppliers terms and conditions from their website, brochures, or request each service provider for their own terms and conditions. Once you have read the relevant terms and conditions of the supplier, and are happy, then you can go ahead and book with the supplier.¬†In-case they don‚Äôt have terms and conditions or you don’t find the existing conditions appealing, ¬†then it is safer not to book with any such suppliers. Unlike in the developed countries some destinations have no or very poor terms and conditions, however if you want to book something you like it is important you discuss these with emails (as a proof) , and keep recordings of phone conversations on serious points you may discuss before you book.

After reaching to peaceful agreement or you consent to the service provider’s terms and conditions, then you can go ahead and book your experience/s.
If you are booking an instant ready-made experience then seek advice from the supplier how you can pay. And if it is a tailor-made experience/s then see how you can arrange payments and the facility in both occasions check if some part of the funds can be paid on arrival or after the experience/s.

How should the Traveller Choose, is there a risk?

Traveller must rely totally on reviews by other travellers who used the service of one particular provider, either from our website Platform reviews or from any trusted third party travel related resources, such as websites, Newspapers, travel journals etc.

As, our website is new, it is possible you may not find at once all suppliers with reviews, however our goal is to bring the website into a good condition, where we want to be able to show reviews of all suppliers, and eventually make the TripMatchMaker website the Market place to look for reliable reviews from verified travellers who have used the service of local travel related suppliers. Until such time, we request travellers to rely on other information from third parties to gather information, before booking any experiences.

Lets, be HONEST! is there anything in the world that’s not Risky? it may sound risky too, however, that’s where insurance kick in, Right?

There are All Sorts of risks associated when it comes to travels. From loosing you funds to losing your head or even losing your life and others who are travelling with you! ¬†So our advise is check with the local suppliers if they offer any Travel insurance, As we don’t offer any insurance, and to be safer , it is much advised to also have your own Home country insurance taken and read, and check what it covers before your travel, and if it does not cover all what you want to be covered on travels,¬†then make sure you¬†take all possible travel related insurance covers, before you book and travel.

Using TripMatchMakers Plat form to communicate and book
Using TMM plat form does not mean we accept travel funds/monies on behalf the traveller or we hold the funds and mediate between the traveller and the service providing supplier and release any payments to the supplier. The TMM plat form is used for the only reason that is to allow reviews by travellers regarding the supplier.
So if any traveller wishes to not share any contact details of the traveller until a service is confirmed by their preferred service provider, travellers can use this platform to communicate with suppliers and the supplier will not see your personal emails, telephone numbers etc, in this way you can contact and send the same enquiry to different suppliers and have a quote and once you are happy with one supplier and when you wish to finalise an experience/s, then you are allowed to send your email to the supplier and have emails exchanges. This is done to protect the traveller from having unnecessary harassment from suppliers and to avoid future promotions and advertisements from service providing suppliers. The traveller is not bound to use this method or platform, however using this also means we have evidence the traveller has actually booked an experience and when reviewing it will be a valid review, only registered users (travellers) are allowed to review. Incase you a non-registered user who had booked an experience directly, in this case we will need sufficient proof before you submit a review , in which we will confirm if the review is a valid upon your submission.

Go Travel or indulge in the Experience.

Once the stage is set, it’s time to sing and dance. Payments are done and a Holiday confirmation has come, now pack your bags or if you are already there then time to get going to enjoy the experience you booked.

Before the Experience
Check nearing your dates or times with the service providing supplier if all is in order.
Get in touch and ask if necessary where to meet, times, or if it simply a boat tour your booked then just go there with sometime before the scheduled time so you don’t miss you seat and to avoid a long queue.

In-case it is local tour, then check with the meeting tour guide or local office if the times given to you in advance hadn’t changed, reconfirm all aspects
Such as your trip itinerary, invoices, holiday confirmation, and agents or tour guides contact information. Get also the tourist board emergency contact numbers, the police stations contact, hospitals contact and all other important safety contacts.

During your trip
It is time to have fun! But responsibly. Make sure you to follow trip rules, or activity or the specific trip guidance. Respect the local areas, the cultures, the code of conduct, ask the guide on how to behave, ask the company before or during the experience if there are rules to follow. It is possible for behavioural reason some companies can expel you from the experiences without any refunds. Respect and be ethical. If any disputes arise during your experience, please contact your local Guide or travel supplying office, and try to resolve things quick then and there, talk to your local agent or guide to solve things as per the agreement you have. In most cases, problems are resolved in this way, however if the raised dispute is not within the local service provider capacity to solve, we ask you to act quickly by informing the police and the local tourist board, or any government representative office which handles such complaints, and also please inform us, though it is not within our reach solve such issues. We will take if found true of any complaint to remove such advertisers from our site.

After you travel
Write a review about your service provider, and their services. This will help other travellers to have realistic expectations. Though opinions can differ, it is best to write the actual experience.
Your Service provider too will have a chance to write a review

  1. It depends, any type of travel related service suppliers can be found here, however you will not find here individual accommodation owners, Only Agents/Suppliers who sell number of accommodation options or other suppliers who sell various travel experience and suppliers who sell activity, excursions and tickets and Passes. You will not find here unethical holiday suppliers here, who will be removed if found.
Category: travellers

It is quite possible in the beginning when the site is launched you will not find everything what you are looking for, this could be for different reasons, from Practical reasons to shortage of specific service providing suppliers and destination differences.

We would ask the traveller to be practical in your search, if you wish to do Base jumping in Bahamas then it would quite an impractical search, and if you are looking for Antarctic Holidays then make sure your search is pointed correctly to listings Tags and Listing categories. Check if you have filtered with proper listing TAGS and listing CATEGORIES or if you had put too many filters, we suggest you make your search on Location, Listing category and listing tags order.

The other main reason, you won’t find some experience is, some service providers have not listed an experience(s) in a particular destination, example maybe you are looking for round tour of Sri Lanka and there when you search it can may show no results, this means no service providing suppliers from Sri Lanka who does a round tour has listed yet with us. And it is also possible if you are looking for wine tasting tour in Sri Lanka, then you will not find any supplier listed a wine touring experience in Sri Lanka for practical reasons, there is no such service providing suppliers exists in Sri Lanka. However, if you are looking for practically correct holiday experience in a destination for this example let’s take Sri Lanka, and you find no supplier (The relevant destination suppliers have not discovered this venue to list yet), then if you need any help from TMM to find some supplier, we are not able to provide such connecting services. However, if a traffic is high to one destination we would be encouraging such destination experts to join us in offering our travellers their service.

The website works in practical way, where it only tries to display what’s listed, so if you are looking for specific destination and if you find the destination search did not display anything in your search, it is likely not even one service provider has listed their service with TMM,  However the very moment, at least service provider lists the destination, it will display the option/s that is available.

Category: travellers

Yes, you can, if you are looking for any supplier on the visiting destination, who sells museums tickets, entry tickets, train tickets, passes,sports and events, concert and show tickets or Ski Passes etc and who has website or registered office, they will be listed to provide you with such travel related experience service.

Category: travellers

Sorry, the site is not a place to buy and sell any equipment’s, even if directly or indirectly helping travellers…So if you are looking to SELL Snorkeling equipment’s, Skis, Camping tents, diving or Surfing equipment’s, hiking boots, or any such equipment’s then we suggest you try such buy and sell websites. However if a traveller is looking to rent the above or travel related equipment’s for hire/rent, then those suppliers can be found here.

Category: travellers

You will see in each listing there are Blue colour icon/symbols on the middle right hand side in a listing body,¬†and it explains what it means. ¬†And then you will see small Black colour icons/Symbols in a listing, just under the description of the listing, and it explains in brief what it means. All these icons/symbols are CLICKABLE , meaning its designed for the sole purpose of easy Navigation. ¬†By clicking on them and playing around a bit, you will get familiar on how to navigate and find your exact experience in your preferred location to be found. Could be fun too. ūüôā

These icons can be a Listing Category or Listing Tags. You can click on these ICONS/SYMBOLS, and they allow to narrow down the specialist local providers, in this way you save a lots time by picking the icon(s) you want for your experience(s). Example you are visiting Argentina, and you want Buenos aires local tour operators, and also during your tour inside the country you want someone who can offer a special wine touring experience, or Tango dance or scenic flight supplier or Aconcagua trek supplier, well you can click on trek or adventure sports ICON and Entertainment icons and local tour operators ICONS and you can see the specialist as well as those who do bit of both. So you can chose with ICONS and narrow down only the specific service suppliers and get in touch with those suppliers. Make sure you have the chosen the destination (by entering on the location you wish to go, or else it will show ALL over the world all Suppliers providing a specific service : ) )

Category: travellers

The Ultimate GOAL of this platform is it should beat All prices, meaning getting the BEST deal.

This is done in 02 ways, by eliminating the intermediary (middle man) supplier(s), and by showcasing similar suppliers for the same services we build competitive price, where the traveller gets and idea of the real Marker price, by receiving various quotes for a specific service.

And lets say there exists another major hidden 3rd point ūüôā
Supplier for sure will not charge you an extra money to give us as commissions. As we only charge them a small listing fee for a year! or for the first Year we offer it free of charge! So there is not need to charge extra, and on top of this! if a 4th point does come into play, then lets say you have full power to negotiate, ! ūüôā
However, these rules may not always apply for certain service and products, like Tickets and Passes and some Accommodation rentals, where it can have fixed prices, however for an excursions, a guide fee, or travel experiences it can most likely work.
Let’s say if you had the opportunity to holiday twice for the price of One, would you say no? it is definitely a Holiday Saving!
Just to give you some idea of what you may look at as your savings! When it comes to considerable (about 4 days or more) number of days based tours and holidays, without the intermediate agent/ supplier/ middle man (outbound foreign agents in your own country) are looking at somewhere between 10% to 50% savings, and it’s pretty much the same trip or maybe at times it is the same local provider who is selling their experiences through your foreign supplier to you. The ultimate goal is to find such suppliers in the travelling country (the local experts) and bring them all in one website where you don’t have to spend time searching in different search engines but to have an overall view of such suppliers and divert the traveller to these suppliers, who will sell the same experience for much cheaper price and gives you the possibility to have a large discount.
PLUS!
Our website even narrows down the searches where you may be able to book certain experiences with the locals of the small town you are visiting and even keep the price cheaper.So for an instant, let’s say you are booking a round trip by land with a private guide with an Argentinian tour incoming/local tour operator, you also want a wine touring experience through Mendoza, and instead of booking the whole trip with the local tour operator , you want to search on our website for some wine experts touring local offices/ guides and you book with them directly, and then ask your local tour operating company to tailor make and see if they can include this in a practical way to the itinerary.  In this way even inside the destination itself, if available you can find and book small experiences, and this would on the whole keep your holiday cost very low.

Category: travellers

Its easy, Check the suppliers listing information, check if it offers any contact numbers, emails etc on the listing itself, if not check if there is a website address (link) on the listing, Once you have chosen one or more suppliers, just write to them directly from your email or call them . You can also contact them through our TMM communication platform to get in touch without revealing your contacts details. Its All up-to you.

Category: travellers

Depending on what you book, if you are visiting a destination and want to save time and arrange all travel related service with one local operator , most times it’s possible to do so, however if you are in a destination already and looking to grab some tickets to museums or passes etc then best to book from the specialised seller who sells them, this would not make any price differences in most cases as it is a standard price, however if one operator is taking time to arrange all these extras, then the firm may save your time and  the supplier would be helpful if you don’t speak the local language to save your time.

Category: travellers

Yes, indeed, this would depend on the availability and how many such small suppliers you can find on our website and on each destination, however the advantage of booking with small supplier you should be able to get a good deal as there are no middle man and commissions.

 

Category: travellers

Of course you may,however the aim of this website is to find the local specialists in the visiting areas who can offer various travel related services and products (goods) for a Good price. TripMatchMaker website is in such a way designed the possibility to display foreign outbound agents on specific countries is not practical. However if you are quite happy with a local suppliers experience(s) and you want this experience, then there is always the possibility you can request your outbound tour operator to get in touch with such local specialist on behalf of you and try to arrange an experience in this manner for safety reasons, where the outbound supplier handles your requests and funds. However this would obviously cost much more than what you would pay direct to the local supplier as it may involve profits/commissions, and it is not TripMatchMakers goal.

Category: travellers

Yes, usually you will most likely to save minimum 10% to 15% to maximum 30% to even 50%.

You will get in touch with suppliers and Discuss fair ways to arrange payments as per the suppliers own terms and conditions.

So lets be clear, when we say, All dealings are done directly with the supplier means, we don’t collect any finances¬†in anyway from a traveller, and neither do we ask commissions from our suppliers.

Payment and confirmation

All Payments and confirmation are done directly by the service provider. Once a Holiday experience payment is executed by the traveller, it is the traveller responsibility to request the supplier to confirm the experience.  This maybe done immediately with an instant online booking (if the service provider had such payment gateways and facilities), such as credit cards and PayPal’s.   Or if the suppliers had requested online banking or bank transfer payments, usually 03 working days to one week traveller should have a confirmation after the payment is confirmed by the supplier from the supplier’s bank. However, if the Supplier is requested you to pay by western union or money gram or similar quick transfers, we would advise travellers to refrain from such transactions, For safety reasons. Travellers must trust their own personal judgement where the funds are concerned and act with all possible caution. (as Advised, you must take All travel related insurance covers before paying and booking an experience(s)

Some services may need only payments when actually buying the experience then and there, and then some experience may require part payments to confirm and block your space and the balance can be paid on arrival or very nearing your experiences or even after the completion of your experience, we request travellers to take safety measures and negotiate with suppliers respectfully and see if there is such possibility, however if the suppliers decline travellers must not force and show respect and decline if they are unsatisfied with the suppliers. As some service suppliers may need upfront payments to confirm an experience/s, such as local tour operators may need to pay third party suppliers such as hotel, transports, entry tickets and guides.  At these times traveller must respect and find a fair deal with supplier on payments and get suppliers terms and conditions signed with stamp or anything else to secure their booking and payments.

However, we may offer an online payment platform in the near future, giving you the ability to make online payments to Advertisers via PayPal, credit card, debit card or other payment options. We may change or remove such platform at any time without notice in our sole discretion. Though we may provide the technical platform to allow such payments, we are not responsible for the payment solutions themselves and we still are not a party to the contract between the traveller and the Advertiser. It is Necessary, the Supplier must advise the traveller to take insurance cover on deposits, holiday monies and full Holiday. If traveller needs customer support in relation to an online payment, the advertiser/supplier must advise the Traveller to contact such online payment solution providing body(ies) or Gateways or bank or credit card provider (as appropriate).

The traveller agrees to indemnify and keep us indemnified from and against any and all claims, actions, proceedings, damages, losses, liabilities and expenses (including legal fees) suffered or incurred by us arising out of or in connection with the travellers use of our online payment platform to make payments to Advertisers, in particular any claims from travellers, Master, VISA, PayPal or other payment solution providers resulting from your actions or omissions.

Payments between Advertisers and travellers: We are not a party for any payment transaction between Advertisers and travellers, even if you had to use our payment gateway and we may charge a fee for the use of the gateway in connection with any payment transaction.  As a rule for safety No advertiser may request any traveller to post cash, or use any quick cash wire transaction services, Example Western Union or MoneyGram in payment for all or part of a Holiday/trip/tour and rentals. Any abuse of this term or any other improper payment methods that may be posted on the Site may result in the immediate removal of the non-compliant listing from the Site without notice to the advertiser.  As we monitor closely our website activities, we may become aware of users trying to conduct a transaction that would involve an illegal payment method or a fake payment method.  Preferably, we hope to be able to assist users in avoiding such fake transactions, but we assume no obligation or responsibility to do so or to inform users of any such real or alleged activity

We recommend the Advertiser offers a Local Bank account in the name of the business and advise bank transfers, wired transfer or if the supplier has trusted gateway online payment system, then to advise travellers to pay on such than any other above mentioned unaccepted payment method.

No the traveller does not pay anything to TMM, you pay directly to the local suppliers, and we don’t take any commissions and as result you are guaranteed to have better price as there are no intermediate operators.

Category: travellers

As we are not a tour operator or travel agency or any mediator we do not accept any funds from the travellers, and hold any funds to release to suppliers. You deal directly with the suppliers and pay them according to each supplier’s terms and conditions and payment rules.

Category: travellers

This Depends on the Product, service and suppliers terms. There are set prices for each suppliers products and services, and there are products and services where you can negotiate, if you are tailor-making and experience such as touring experience its better you discuss with each supplier your budget and ask the supplier to match your budget, so we encourage you to give it a try to get your best deal. However terms and conditions most likely be fixed, though with payments we ask you to find a balance or fair negotiation such as on arrival you pay part of a holiday fee, if it is a large sum for bigger holiday booking unlike a ticket or pass. This does not guarantee that all suppliers will accept your proposals and while some may do some may decline and you must respect the suppliers’ terms and conditions and if you are unsatisfied we ask you to try another where you can deal better.

Yes, it’s always good to stay in touch with the supplier/s if you have booked various holiday components with a supplier or different suppliers. In the event of an unexpected situation arose, it gives you ample time to resolve or find alternative solutions and act quickly. However once a holiday is confirmed it should stay unchanged and it’s the suppliers direct responsibility to inform the traveller, if something is to be changed.  It is wise for this reason to be in touch with the supplier nearing your trip experience dates

Category: travellers

This depends on the type of service and products. There are some services such as booking a holiday on the beach or a tour, where you may need to pay in advance to the local suppliers, and there may be small experiences where you should be able to reserve in advance and pay later when you show up or book online directly, depending if the suppliers website had online payment gateway.In the event you are booking tour in a foreign country you may need to pay a deposit (as suppliers in their own country may risk if booking service with their own local suppliers and if a cancellation occurs) to avoid such risks for hotels and other travel related services supplier may charge a deposit , Please check with each suppliers cancellation/change policies and refund rules in case of cancellations/changes by you and or by them, in the suppliers terms and conditions.  It is always advisable to see if payments partly can be settled nearing your trip or on arrival or even after.

Category: travellers

As the website will run on reviews, there will be less room for those suppliers who has intentions to over-charge, with competitors offering more or less guidance price for services and products, it would be easy for a traveller to find out the market value of the service or product they purchase. Reviews have a good control, which will thrive suppliers to stay on course with practical selling prices.

Category: travellers

All taxes, Service charges and Tourism related taxes are payable by the traveller, and when sending a quote or enquiring for product or service price the suppliers automatically add them in as a usual pricing policy. However there are also suppliers (depending on the destination) who will only show a price without taxes, Vat and SC etc…it is always a must, that the travellers reconfirms all these aspects before any payments are done. In the event in changes to taxes etc. if you are to pay or not should be clarified with supplier when finalising an experience.

Category: travellers

At this very moment when the site is running, we have not developed an App for TMM, However in the very near future you will see and app, which will enable you to use your smart phones to access different services of TMM.

Category: travellers

There is no Guarantee from TMM that all advertisers are genuine, real, reliable and trustworthy, each supplier will also never be the same quality with same services & products they sell (Please see also our terms and conditions). It is the responsibility of the traveller to avoid all such risk factors before finalising and paying for any experience, We at TMM do not Endorse any advertisers/Suppliers, Service Providers or listings . We advise our travellers (registered or non-registered users) to pay careful attention to Reviews, References and risk factors before booking, you can find reviews and/or reference/recommendations from previous/past travellers who used the suppliers service/s.

You will see on the bottom of each listing there will be a review section from Genuine/Verified travellers who used the services of a supplier, and see if you don’t find any reviews or if you have any questions you can write¬†and ask the past travellers who will be notified, and it is possible that such past travellers will not always answer to your questions.

However, we encourage travellers to check leading trusted travel related websites and articles to find out more information about the supplier whom you are booking with and also it is always advisable to check in the destination you are travelling, to check with local authorities such as the Government approved bodies such as the tourist board or any suppliers who are credited with various international tourism or relevant product license to carry on business, like IATA for example or a valid tourist board license, company registration number and registered service locations and addresses, and contact details etc…once you know enough information and the reliability of the service provider it is always safer to book and pay. You take your own risks by accessing our website to be able match a trip to your destination. We are only referral site.

Category: travellers

While we can talk only about TMM, other websites that provides such reviews have their own criteria and the traveller must go about this with total care.

TMM, we only allow verified users to review their travel experiences. You must have actually booked an experience and we should be able to find sufficient proof before approving a travellers reviews. We do this in 02 ways. And if you have atleast a part payment confirmation of a holiday, regardless of whether while you are in a Holiday or after , in both cases you are allowed to write a reviews, and the below method explains how a registered and non-registered user will be allowed to review.

This is how Reviews work

I. If a Positive review is written by a traveller we will allow the review to be shown on the suppliers listing. However, if a suspecting (in our own discretion including a positive review) , bad, sign of a false review, bad mouthing or trying to accuse of a supplier without booking or similar review is written, We will then take action by contacting the supplier to clarify if an an actual holiday took place(meaning booked and Paid, at-least part payment), then we will contact the Traveller and request to send us proof of a holiday confirmation  and/or invoice (which when advertiser start a listing should submit), where we will match with the provided samples we have from the suppliers, (in case the the suppliers holiday confirmation/invoice format changes , suppliers should immediately submit us such changed formats, failing to submit stands a chance of allowing the bad reviews to be published), and if it matches we allow the bad or suspecting review to approved, and if it doesn’t we simply disallow the review.  This system is more for the Non-registered user, thought the registered user too can, given the circumstance could fall into this option of confirming a review.

II. This relies more on our messaging system (more for registered users) that ensures that communication between Advertisers (Suppliers) and travellers or potential Travellers stays on TMM website (even though all contacts of the suppliers will be shown as it is on the 1st option). The main reason for selecting this option is, the traveller feel protected from giving their personal contacts such as email, telephone numbers etc. travellers contact information remains private (as the traveller choose not to reveal his/her contact information, until a booking is confirmed for security and safety reasons) until the traveller have a confirmed reservation. After confirming the booking, the traveller can disclose contact information and it will be necessary for the traveller to deal directly with the supplier, However in this option if any traveller booked a holiday/trip, they automatically gain right to (as a registered users) write a review without TMM having to reconfirm with advertisers, as we will have access to your communication (provided the traveller only used the TMM plat form, and if any outside communication had taken place, then we may require additional proof).However in the event we have a doubt that there was only communication occurred and nothing was actually booked with supplier, then travellers are not allowed to write reviews. This will be decided solely on our own discretion.

Category: travellers

Yes ofcourse, you can ask for reviews, and also ask if anyone of the past travellers references/recommendations (if the third party is ONLY willing to share contacts with you directly at their own intention).

Category: travellers

Yes as we mentioned here on the FAQ’s, it is the traveler’s responsibility to request all information before booking anything with supplier. Ask the supplier for other online valid references and license, Business registrations and any other information before booking, ask practical information such as where is the office, whom the traveller has to meet on arrival, the place to meet, the time to meet, the contact telephone/mobile/email addresses of the person to meet, full names, ID Card numbers/Passport Numbers, scan copy of their Business registrations and/if tourist board license, guide License, business address and cross check with the relevant government bodies by calling or emailing them if they actually are registered/licensed, if you need further proof. Once this is sorted you should have a peace of mind before travelling and paying.

Ask, also the Supplier for information about Police, Legal assistance information, Tourist board or tourist Police information, and ask also the suppliers for terms and condition of the suppliers as advise here on FAQs in detail.

Category: travellers

If the contact person who needs to welcome or meet you for an experience doesn’t show up, it is best to call the supplier immediately and try to resolve this situation, it is also possible the host/Guide is delayed, however if you can not reach the meeting host/guide or agent with provided number, then ask the booking company or supplier by making a quick call, in case the Supplier is not reachable, then you should call the tourist board or similar authority to take action or report to the Tourist Police/police. However in some countries things can be rather slow, So you don’t need to scare the supplier, first try things in amicable fashion and stay calm to see maybe it was only a DELAY, however if your wait is significant (meaning more than 2 hours or so or if you feel suspicious) and there is no sign of anyone turning up or the office you visited does not exists , then its time to act with local tourist police/police, Governing authorities. If you are booking an experience with an office, feel free to ask their scan copy of Business registration or business license, or tourist board or government license, and same applies to Guides, ask also the guides (or if it is one person) for a Copy of the National ID card or copy of his/hers passport , as this would helpful to the local authorities.

In the unlikely event if the unexpected occurs, we advise you to take immediate actions by calling the Police authorities/Tourist Police or find a law firm and take legal actions against such situations. The government office in many countries can be very helpful , and this is also why before traveling we advise you to take a bit of your time and make a check list before vising a destination and getting all the information and contacts of relevant bodies and suppliers , so in times of troubles you can act swiftly and try to negotiate fair payments terms.

Bear in mind, booking with suppliers who has good reviews is important, however maybe you won’t find any reviews on our site, and then it is best to find them on other trusted websites before booking, Suppliers with positive reviews will in the least would attempt to cheat any traveller,¬†as it will harm their reputation, however saying this does not endorse any advertisers or listings on our website, it is the travellers duty to act with caution and to avoid any danger or any risk that can occur, we at TMM does not take any responsibility in the event of any losses of funds on holiday money and travels and on injury, death or any form of losses.

 

Category: travellers

No, we do not Endorse any advertiser/travel related service provider/service providers/Suppliers or and listing in any form, whatsoever. This is true even if we had to mediate in assisting travellers in booking an experience. Travellers must always bring all disputes direct to the supplier and take any action against the supplier in the event of any unexpected situations.

Category: travellers

Regardless of whether you are a registered user or non-register user, and if you have actually booked (meaning at least paid a part payment as deposit), and if¬†we have found you are genuine in our own discretion (As stated on FAQ’s here), then the traveller will be approved to write a review on cancelled trip for future travellers, as we find writing such reviews can be helpful to inform of a supplier.

Category: travellers

All Advertisers/Service Providers/ listing agents are verified. When an advertiser is interested to list, we check if the provider is actually real.¬† When registering an advertiser goes through a process where our System checks for an exact set of verification checks‚ÄĒPhyiscal address, Checks with Authorities or any proof of the service suppliers existence, email address, landline and mobile phone numbers, offline Check and online check. ¬†We take time to call and actually speak with a supplier and ask for more proof the establishments such registration numbers, License numbers, and when approving the listing we ask the¬†suppliers to provide an Sample of an¬†invoice or holiday confirmation, which should show the¬†business physical address of registration. However though we do a back ground check, this however does not mean, we at TripMatchMaker(s) have endorsed any supplier, and we TMM should not be held responsible if any information provided by supplier is incorrect to false, all such dealings and disputes should be brought direct against the service provider and if any legal necessary actions to be taken it should be brought directly against the advertiser/Service provider / suppliers and relevant authorities, not against TripMatchMakers Ltd.

Advertisers (suppliers) and travellers develop reliability and reputations by reviews, so we encourage travellers to always write a review after completing the trip and this would help both the advertisers and other like-minded travellers to book with more practical knowledge and others experiences…

Images are no Guarantee for the actual experience, most of the times it is a representation of the experiences and an example , and the same applies to the suppliers website images. We do have a strict policy when a supplier lists regarding the¬†images, you can see this on FAQ’s for Advertisers/Suppliers. However though we have set policies regarding the images to the advertiser , it does not mean the traveller will have the same experience as shown on the images, Its not the exact representation of the experience.

 

 

Category: travellers

Travellers who access the website (the Site), our bound by TripMatchMaker¬†terms conditions,¬†privacy policies¬†and FAQ’s for Travellers, in addition when booking en experience, service or product travellers are bound by relevant suppliers terms and conditions, website terms of use, terms and conditions, privacy policies and other terms and conditions of the supplier.

Category: travellers

To simply put, our terms and conditions are : You have to follow the travel service suppliers (advertisers/listing advertisers) terms and conditions. Your booking is done directly with the suppliers and as we are no intermediary (mediator, merchant, Dealer or a middle man) to contract with, any disputes or cancellations should be addressed or directed towards the supplier. We have only stated down on the FAQs & our terms and conditions how things work for guidance purpose only.

Usually if you or anyone on your holiday booking decides to cancel the holiday, the lead name must notify the supplier of the decision as soon as possible in writing. Any notification by telephone must also be confirmed in writing or by e-mail within 24-hours by the lead name. Usual Cancellation procedure is when the suppliers receive the decision in writing from this day onwards it should be begin your cancellation days.

A cancellation invoice should be sent to you or you should request the supplier to do so, as it differs in each country. It should arrive within 7 days, if you do not receive this please contact the supplier immediately and request to send you the cancellation invoice and holiday confirmation cancellation.

Category: travellers

A) What happens if a cancellation occurs (the traveller cancels the booked and paid holiday or service) and part of the money need to return to my account does not arrive as per the supplier’s conditions? Can TMM act on behalf of this? Are there insurance covers to take? What if I want to change my plan? Full or partly?
B) Are there any refunds? Cancellations by traveller or cancellation by agent/advertiser?
C) What is the Advertiser/Supplier changes or cancels my booked experience/s? (This includes Changes due to Circumstances within and beyond the supplier‚Äôs control such as ‚Äúforce majeure‚ÄĚ , what force Majeure here means any event or circumstances which the supplier of the service/s in question could not, even with all due care, predict or evade. Such events may include, acts of God, acts of government, nuclear disaster, whether actual or threatened, industrial dispute, civil strife war, terrorist activity, riot, epidemics, fire and other situations which are outside supplier‚Äôs control.)

In all or both cases, if either you or the advertiser/Supplier Cancels/Changes the booked experience/s, If the service providers terms and conditions stated cancellation policies, then you have the right to request the supplier to act as stated on suppliers/advertisers terms and conditions (make sure you sign the booking form of the supplier after carefully reading the terms and conditions, and if anything is unclear please clarify before signing the booking form, While some may offer a refund others may not offer refunds for various reasons, such as: some countries have strict regulations to send money abroad and large sum of bank charges/costs and lengthy procedures, it may take a long time for you to have your funds back. it is also possible you will, as direct or indirect result of this may lose the holiday funds.

This is one of the reason why we advise travellers to negotiate when paying for holidays to pay part (deposit 10% to 50%) and the Balance to pay on arrival or when the experience begins or ends. This is a safer option, however not all suppliers are able to offer this facility due strict cancellation rules and regulations, So It is quite important you purchase trip cancellation insurance and medical insurance, either privately or from the tour operator. However sometimes local tour operators or any form of travel service providers do not have such insurance facilities. And this could slightly be different from an outbound suppliers operations, where you book with in your own country, however even your home country outbound agents offer two choices,  either

1) you buy your insurance with them or

2) you purchase an insurance cover privately from your insurance company.

So in this instant if your local supplier is unable to provide such insurance facilities then we strongly recommend you to take insurance from your own country of travel.

It is very important that you have insurance cover and that it is sufficient and appropriate for your particular needs such as, Holiday funds (including cancellations and changes), travel and medical. In-case you decide to decline on such local suppliers insurances (if available and provided by the supplier) then we advise you to check with your home insurance company. Any questions about what travel insurance does or does not cover should be addressed directly to the travel insurance company. If you travel without any insurance cover at all, either from the travel service provider or from a personal insurance from the country you travelling, you will personally assume full responsibility for any financial loss associated with your travel arrangements, and you could lose your travel investment and/or have to pay more money to correct the situation. Furthermore, if you require medical/any other form of assistance whilst on holiday you will not be covered and you in turn may incur significant costs. If you have taken an insurance policy please read your policy details carefully and take them with you on holiday.
If you want to change any part of your holiday arrangements after the invoice has been issued, it need to be addressed direct to the service providing supplier. At Most times the local service provider conditions maybe slightly easier than trying to change with an outbound supplier from your own country and if any costs occurs it should be cheaper too. However changes after an invoice is issued and paid, always will cost extra. However, Please ask your supplier how they will deal with such cases, as it will differ from one supplier to another. If it is possible to make the changes, it will be subject to an administration charge per booking or per head, and payment of any further costs incurred as a result of the change. If the suppliers agree that you may change your booking to a holiday of lower value, and then you cancel that holiday, they reserve the right to levy cancellation charges on the value of the original booking. Please clarify all these points from your local supplier point by point and in writing.

It is in the most unlikely event that service provider may offer an experience without any terms and conditions, the risk of taking part in such experiences without signing any booking form which is directly connected to terms and conditions, may drive you to unpleasant and costly experiences. If the Service provider has no terms and conditions it is always good to take time to ask by writing an email with all your questions you have and fears, losses, doubts and anything you see can be dangerous to you, and ask the supplier to give an answer on a point by point basis for all your questions. There are destinations where very remote which has very few suppliers and such suppliers may have poor terms and conditions or no terms and conditions at all. its best you ask everything in writing and incase of any disputes you will have proof of all the communications, which may come useful if the traveller has to produce evidence to respective local authorities and for insurance purposes, if you have taken any insurance cover for your travels. It is also important to find out reviews/recommendation of the travellers from TMM website or from other trusted travel related website, articles, newspapers and resources.

Our advice is: if the worst unexpected happens, first contact the tourist authorities in the respective country you are visiting, before travelling it is the travellers responsibility to ask the suppliers of All important contact details of authorities and institutions such as Police, Hospital, legal and any other emergency contact numbers and email addresses incase the issue is something bigger than the supplier could resolve, and it is also the duty of the supplier to provide legal assistance if the traveller needs such help, before or when booking advertisers should provide such information, as this helps the travellers to travel with peace of mind.

We strictly advise the traveller (you) to find out these information, check if your destination has good internet connections. This would help immensely to act swiftly and inform the right authorities in times of troubles, and take legal action if disputes cannot be amicably resolved. We also advise travellers to stay in touch with someone from your home country.

Most time if there are minor issues Advertiser/Supplier should be available to resolve these if informed then and there (immediately, without waiting until you get home), in this way most of the issues are re-solved quickly.

TMM does not endorse any listing on this site. However if in our fair judgment after investigating a dispute, where we conclude that an actual holiday was booked with the supplier and if the claim is fair, and if a valid loss had taken place then we will assist, in offering a letter stating the case in our opinion is genuine (or if it is the opposite we will provide saying such). However it will only be a letter from us and it should not be held as valid legal document. This would only be our opinion as we see it. All allegations and actions to should be taken directly against the service supplier with respective authorities.

It is in the very unlikely situation that the supplier would charge additional than the agreed price. However exchange rates sometimes can push suppliers to ask of significant price increase (Significant price increase meaning anything more than USD 100 as example only), as suppliers who contracts with local suppliers in USD payments face this situation, however before any holiday is confirmed, traveller must discuss about possible price rise issues and the reasons, and to come to some form of agreement where when holiday is Paid there will be no additional charges. And it is better agreed in writing. in this way it would needless to worry before when arriving at your destination.

It is your responsibility to become informed about the most current travel advisories and warnings by referring to your local Government Authorities/Department’s, You should take time to read and find out more information through other trusted travel related websites about the country you intend to travel. If the Foreign Office advises that people should not visit a particular country, then we expect you act on this advice by cancelling your experiences booked.   You should be aware that the Cultural, political, economic and social conditions in many of the countries that list here are not always safe. Crimes against both people and their assets are inevitable the world over, and when you are engaging in travels it is the travellers duty to be vigilant. As a responsible traveller you should not draw attention to yourself by carrying luxury goods such as expensive jewelry or taking expensive equipment’s such expensive camera.

Safety should be your own responsibility, Travellers have the same responsibility for their personal safety and for their properties, as they do back in their own country.   You should not expect the standard of safety and health to be of the same standard as your own country, it can be better in some countries and in some countries it could be worse. Always make sure your travel insurance is explains all these points clearly. Make sure you check your insurance policy covers these emergencies.

We request all travellers who use TMM website to undertake reasonable precautions to protect the travellers family and the traveller while on holiday.

You will need a full 10 year passport to travel to most destinations. Depending on your Nationality, Some destinations also require visas, entry regulations which must be adhered to before landing,  If you have committed or been convicted of a criminal offence including driving whilst impaired, you may be prohibited from entering certain countries. we advise when planning to book your holiday you request such information from the advertiser/service provider, and also check with travelling VISA office or check the relevant government offices, embassies, High Commissions, consulates, and website (if available) in obtaining a visa if required or request additional information, Example, if an Indian needs to enter the UK, or Europe he will need to apply well in advance with the local embassy, High Commission or consulate, and until such visas are confirmed we request the traveller not book anything firm, Please seek local embassy, consulate or representative bodies for such information. In the event a holiday is booked and paid and your entry Visa is not granted, TMM or service providers cannot be held responsible and your holiday money can be a loss. It is your responsibility to sort such information and take action. We advise you to take the measures you will need to take prior to departure.
