TravelLocal Vacancy

Customer Success Advocate


TravelLocal (Bristol) and trip.me (Berlin) recently merged to create one of the most significant online marketplaces for tailor-made travel, with a strong presence in both English-language and German-language markets. 

With customers in more than 100 origin countries and suppliers/partners in nearly 100 destination countries, we are using technology to reimagine this sector, pioneering the “buy local” movement in travel. Our ethos is that local knowledge is best, that local economies should benefit more from tourism; the best holidays are made with creativity and imagination from real experts who live and work in the destination itself.

This opportunity to join the Travel Success Team comes at a key time in our evolution, and will help lead the integration of both businesses, driving performance post Covid and beyond.

With offices in the heart of both Berlin and Bristol, we are an exciting, dynamic, fun, and driven place to work with a results-oriented approach.
