TravelTriangle is an online travel services company.
Sankalp and Sanchit, two childhood buddies who graduate from the Indian Institute of Technology quit their plush postings at Adobe and Yahoo in the middle of 2010. They took nearly a year to fine-tune their concept before launching their venture . They started out in a garage in Noida with a business model that links customers with travel agents. Soon they roped in a third friend from school, Prabhat Gupta, who graduated from IIT Guwahati the same year, as a core development member.
The idea came about on a trip to Leh some two years ago when Sankalp found that two other friends booked similar packages as theirs but from different travel agents. One of them booked with the local travel agent in Leh and got the best deal, whereas his group shelled out much more for the same package. After some research, they found that such examples were very prominent in the industry. They realized that the tour industry was very opaque with prices and quality of services. There was no standard platform which can honestly guide travelers to book customized and personalized packages at genuine prices. Realizing the big market size that is available for the travel sector, they decided to jump in.
