About

A company that believes partnering
is more powerful than parenting

TravelEdge is a technology company specializing in the travel industry. For the past seven years we have been creating and fine tuning the technology, digital marketing and operational processes that will redefine the travel industry. We are currently the backbone for 10 leisure agencies, five corporate agencies and a tour operator, supporting over $500M in sales.

In the midst of new and emerging technology and business trends, some may consider travel to be old school and dull. TravelEdge will make you think again. We run more like a start-up, where the space is controlled chaos, the teams are lean, and the work is challenging. The squad is captained by senior leaders who have years of experience in helping companies transform business through smarter marketing and commerce programs.

We believe that we should all be connected by a set of values – things that are important to us, and should be important to you… things like a passion to innovate, a desire to act quickly and fail fast, the confidence to act audaciously, but with humility, and of course a desire to see real returns and results.
