USA TODAY continues to expand travel offerings
- April 18, 2013
USA TODAY Travel Media group announced Wednesday that it has bought travel site Tripology as the company looks to expand its travel offerings.
Tripology.com is an interactive travel referral service that connects travelers with travel specialists.
“The acquisition of Tripology fits well into our overall growth strategy. The USA TODAY Travel Media Group has been expanding its digital portfolio of travel news, products and services over the past year,” John Peters, president of USATODAY Travel Media Group, said in a statement. “Time-starved travelers researching and booking cruises, honeymoons, family reunions, and other complicated travel often require the services of a travel professional and Tripology can match them with a specialist.”
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
USA TODAY plans to offer Tripology’s referral services across Gannett media outlets. Earlier this year USA TOday acquired 10Best.com, which offers reviews of attractions and restaurants at locations around the world.
