Whether you're into travel tours or not, you should listen to Travis Pittman, the CEO of TourRadar.

I've always been skeptical and resistant to tours. I've always preferred independent travel.

Travis makes a pretty convincing argument why TourRadar is a compelling platform and marketplace.

TourRadar aggregates 1,000 tour operators with 30,000 different trips all over global.

About 70% of those who book with TourRadar are females, especially solo female travelers.

Group sizes vary from 6 to 50 people.

TourRadar focuses on regions, not cities. For instance, you'd search for Tuscany or Italy, not just Florence. Tours last at least 3 days. The sweet spot for them is about 12 days. So if you only want a tour of Paris, don't use TourRadar.

Travis reveals:

    How TourRadar makes money. What's a common error people make when booking a tour. What kind of recourse you have when a tour bombs. How he got started. How much venture capital TourRadar has taken in. What's TourRadar's strategic direction for 2019 and beyond.

This is episode #21.
