The three Indian Institutes of Technology graduates (Sankalp Agarwal, Sanchit Garg and Prabhat Gupta) had founded TravelTriangle in 2011 with an agenda of connecting travelers with verified travel agents.
Well, the story goes like this: these three students a year before establishing TravelTriangle were actually working for Adobe, Oracle and Yahoo. Then they went on a holiday vacation to Ladakh through a travel agent and were satisfied. However, as they arrived at their destination, they met several travellers who had a better trip accommodation from a different travel agent. This rooted their idea to customize their own Holiday Plan company, now more known as TravelTriangle.
Even TravelTriangle had recently started, they were actually the first full stack Holiday Marketplace which is also privately owned.
What is TravelTriangle?
When we tried exploring TravelTriangle at first, we are still unsure if we’ll consider them as an online travel agency. Because the steps are actually basic and similar on how to search, compare and book online via travel sites. On TravelTriangle, it will initially ask travellers to enter their destination, number of days, budget and if travelling alone. In this review, I entered US, for a week (7 days), 5000 Rupee (since the budget is in Rupee by default) and with a partner. After clicking “Explore”, it led me to an option to request quotes from their experts.
This time it asked for more direct question like the preferred destination and departure date, then hit “Request Quotes” which will inform customers they have to wait for 24-48 hours to receive a quote from their experts. Though to save yourself from the boredom of waiting for just a random quote decided by them, customers also have the option to just manually search or “Explore All Destinations” as featured on their main page.
The later part of the page, only gives more of their top selling destinations. They also have an animated version of images of their top three travel agents below, including how many trips they had sold. On TravelTriangle they also had mentioned that they make customer’s purchase reliable and safe. However, I wonder why they are garnering this kind of TravelTriangle reviews:
TravelTriangle Reviews of Consumers
On the popular commenting site Mouthshut, TravelTriangle had gathered several negative reviews recently and in the past from their consumers. Some asked other travellers to stay away from TravelTriangle, some had consider them with the worst customer service and worst trip organizer. The most recent reviewer, said that his experience from booking to the actual service was pathetic. But what really caught our attention was the complaint where TravelTriangle misplaced their customer’s passport and didn’t help or provide compensation for their mistake.

In A Nutshell
Even after reading the origin and services of TravelTriangle, they have an online chat support and even their page was easy to navigate. The TravelTriangle reviews alone were enough to convince me that this travel startup should be working on some of their downsides. Specially, if these specifically affect their overall reputation which drives majority of their consumers out of their bracket.
