Company Summary

TripGrow uses the proven Christmas Club business model, but with a travel twist. Our target market are 18 to 55 year olds who are planning to travel within 10 to 24 months. Traditional savings methods don't work for them, as money saved for travel is spent on other things. TripGrow provides a flexible method of saving where people can take advantage of partners offers & specials while saving, which helps make their holiday money go even further.

    Gaye Miller
    Founder

    As someone who loves to travel, it was obvious to me that there was not a savings product available in the market that provided a savings element with the flexibility to change your mind should life get in the way. My experience of running a bookkeeping business plus being a travel writer, & travel author means I've got a great understanding of issues that people face in both areas. It is this extensive knowledge I bring to TripGrow.
