    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 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 “:)

    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!

    Listings are for Suppliers who are a registered/licensed and the advertiser is a SPECIALIST of the advertising experience/s. All advertisers must be an inbound/incoming service providing supplier (its perfectly fine if you are engaged in an outbound travel service operation, however you must have an incoming travel service/department in your company), who has a physical address or office, unless you are a specialised supplier for Antarctica or Arctic or any such remote areas, where no specialised travel service providers exists, then you can list too. All advertiser should be registered or have a license to carry out business in their local country/destination. Advertisers must have their own website or strong convincing recommendations from some approved local or government bodies, and the recommendation will be decided on our own sole discretion. Advertisers can be any LOCAL specialised travel service providing operator, Guide (person) or any travel related provider such as who sells various travel related tickets/passes for tourists or providers who sells Ski passes or museum/concert/Grand-prix or football ticket selling suppliers or bodies.

    Category: Tour Operators

    If it is practical only, unfortunately there will be less luck in a traveller finding the foreign supplier as local destination expert as this website is designed in such away , where it only reveals the specialised Local service provider in the travelling destination or Local/nearby area. However if you have a local branch where it can show on the travelling destination then it could be useful. So we encourage incoming or inbound suppliers to list on TripMatchMakers website.  In the event you have listed as an outbound agent and have regrets then there will be no refunds for not noticing when submitting your payments.

    Category: Tour Operators

    No single property owners are allowed to list with TMM. If you are an accommodation provider/owner who provides/owns more than minimum 02 properties as an accommodation provider you are legible to list through TMM. Requests are received directly; negotiation is direct, without any commissions unlike large rental websites.

    Category: Tour Operators

    If the advertiser finds the website is suitable for suppliers business, then the supplier must contact us and enquire about the suitability of the listings, this is important as any advertiser who assumes the service is matching on above mentioned criteria and then proceed to list without enquiring will have the risk of losing the listing, if the listing is not suitable for this site.

You will see Listing name, where you will have to enter your company Name or product selling name, make sure it is your business name (registered) and if you are a Guide your full name.

    C) You will next see “TAG LINE”, which is very important as it displays on the General Listing card (example when you search a destination and/or an experience the main page where it shows listings applicable to the search) the Highlights of your service. Which enables travellers to know in short sentences your specialised service or products. (Example “Your Villa Specialist in Bahamas”, “ bespoke wine tasting and tours in Napha”, Your Antarctic cruise specialist”, Day excursion tours in Cambodia” Vietnam accommodation agency” or Bicycle rentals in Amsterdam” Ski pass suppliers for Skiing in Swiss alps” )

    D) Description is next, here you should write  and describe yourself and services, with one (01) or two (02) lines/sentence, about the Nature of business and its practices. Service providers/advertiser/Agencies must understand that traveller look for specific travel needs, and the service providers should list only there top specialisation services and products.

    Introduction to your services
    It is very important how you describe your service and products. Please take your time to explain your services and products carefully and accurately. And try to keep the introduction professional and to the point. write a line or two(02) about a very short history of your existences and experience. Travellers may not take time to read lengthy stories, of course the articulate and well written description always stands out and has a good possibility of grabbing the attention of the travellers, as a direct result getting more traffic to your contacts or website.
    It is useful to inform the traveller exactly what to expect when using your service/s, so please list the facilities of service or products. You can also give a small introduction to other extra services you offer in relating to the experience they choose. Example if you are a Villa rental agency (Villa Owners or property owners cannot list here for one single property they have, Minimum of 02 properties) , the traveller maybe interested to know if he/she can book a car or taxi or a day excursion with you or if you know someone who is reliable that can be arranged.

    Also you are most welcome to leave reference from trusted third-party travel related website or any other links that recommends you services from other travellers, all links should be appropriate.

    If you already have TMM driven traffic and reviews on TMM websites (under your listing you will see a review section of your company/yourself.) it would give you a better visibility…however as a new comer this may take a bit of time, so having third party trustworthy link can be an advantage, All third party links should be directly relating to your services and inappropriate links will be removed, and as result of such practices the advertiser may risks losing his/her/its listings without any refunds.

    Please make sure your website address and contact details are given correctly and how they work.

    State your terms and conditions on your  OWN website covering all aspects of the service(s) and product(s) you offer, most travellers are interested to know your terms and conditions and how you work in times of Cancellations/Changes to the booked experiences, disputes, trouble and unexpected situations. If you need help in these please feel free to Contact us. We can guide you with some advice on how to put up a local fair condition policy, and our team will be happy to assist you in setting time to talk to you on Skype, telephone or other form if audible conversation.

    Pricing, Response time and availability
    Depending on what your selling products and services, it is important to give the traveller an idea. If your service or product is ready to be sold without any changes (such as fixed Tours where you have room allotments with all hotels you provide or Museums tickets), then you can give an idea of pricing and the availability. This would change from the nature of your service and product, or you can advise them to check your website for the latest prices and contact you to check availability, please advise how soon you can act on confirming availability (example minimum hours to book an experience example 24 hours or 14 days prior or as your own rule) and if prices need change (such as the tour price is only for Guidance purpose and depending on the hotels and availability price changes occurs, same applies for tailor-made experiences) what’s the realistic time they should expect to have it form you (a holiday quote). Giving a clear picture/idea of how you work as it will help the travellers to write good reviews and in return your business can boost.

    Incase if your service is more tailor-made then please give a guidance price range such as FROM US$ xxx to US$ xxxx, so the traveller saves time in picking the appropriate budget suppliers. Try not say “contact us for prices”, most likely the traveller will not contact you at all. Giving a Guidance “FROM-TO” prices will save advertisers and travellers time immensely.

    If you have website (depending on your service) and a calendar up to date of availability, especially for accommodation and rental service providers, this would help the traveller to get real time availability and book.

    If you have online payment facilitates such as PayPal and credit card facilities feel free to write on this. Please advise that in these situations the payment gateway itself is responsible if the funds do not arrive and the traveller is responsible for his own payments and for using third party supplier gateways. Also if using credit card facilities there occurs extra commissions and charges, then it is best to give the traveller an idea what percentages or commissions the customers can pay….also to boost business it is essential you give the traveller an advise if they can pay Full or part of the holiday trip on arrival at your destination/country. This would build trust with the travellers, of course if some of your local suppliers need advance payments, we would advise you to negotiate with the suppliers and if possible to have on arrival payment option or at least part of the holiday fees, we know this is not always possible but having some peace of mind payment policy will boost business for sure.

    Better Prices, Deals and Special offers
    The Goal of this website is to offer the traveller a good holiday price, and to be able make the traveller realise booking with the local Supplier directly (we mean really directly with no middle man) brings the cost of their holiday lower.

    Ofcourse this only applies for Holiday experiences and not for passes or tickets, however if such ticket/pass/guide service suppliers are able to offer even a small discount , then we welcome them to mention of possible discounts, such GROUP DISCOUNTS etc.

    Before listing, Please see on FAQ’s for Service Suppliers (tour operators) Where it says “HOW DOES IT WORK? LIST YOUR SERVICE PROVIDING OFFICE WITH US AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE FREE LIMITED LISTING PROMOTIONS!” and “WHO CAN LIST WITH TMM?”

    All advertisers when submitting a listing can either add to their Image Gallery an Image of the example of the Holiday confirmation and/or an example of the invoice/pro-forma invoice which they will offer the traveller as an image (take a picture) of sample invoice and a “holiday confirmation Letter” which you will offer your traveller. It’s very important we have this in order to verify a review(s). Especially for those travellers who attempt to write reviews as non-registered reviews and to protect suppliers from false and misleading reviews. In the event advertiser fail to produce a sample holiday confirmation image and sample invoice/pro-forma invoice, the advertiser stands the risks of the misleading or false review been published  on their listings. Once a listing is approved and published it will not be able to remove such reviews. So we advise the suppliers take caution.

    This depends what payment options are available with you (advertiser/Supplier). We act only as a referral service provider, we neither accept payments on behalf of the clients nor transfer any payments on for the for the service providers (Advertiser) as a usual practice. All Payments must be dealt directly with the service providing suppliers as per your own terms and conditions. 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 Advertiser 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 and without refund.  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.

    i. Deal direct (T&C’s of the Supplier) or Contact the advertiser
    This method is the most recommended, as we are not destination experts, we encourage Travellers to email, telephone or chat on any options the advertiser has listed. This saves lots of time and money too. Travellers see the ideal service providing supplier (Advertiser) and contact directly and books and pays direct to advertiser as per the Advertisers terms and conditions and Privacy policies. 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) , 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), 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, and if it doesn’t we simply disallow the review.

    This will decide the Validity of the Booking, then if all matches we allow an unregistered user to write a review, and become a valid review. This method we do not collect any payments or charge the traveller or charge any commissions from the Advertiser/supplier, and we expect the advertiser to offer the best Price as there won’t be any middle agent/person. For the Travellers Peace of mind, we’ve added reporting features so you can easily notify us if you ever feel uncomfortable when dealing directly and during the planning stage of your trip if anything unpleasant is happening. We will be forced to remove any form of harassment from such advertisers without any refunds.

    ii. Deal through TMM communication plat form (T&C’s of the Supplier and our term of use and conditions)
    This relies more on our messaging system 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 thin is 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.
