Australia’s fastest growing online travel company, TripADeal, is excited to announce its launch into the New Zealand market. Launching early October, TripADeal is set to shake up the way New Zealanders book and experience travel, with a range of exceptional deals to the world’s most desirable locations at unbelievable prices - all flying from New Zealand.

To coincide with the launch, Rugby Union legend Dan Carter has been announced as the New Zealand Brand Ambassador, helping TripADeal cross the Tasman to link New Zealanders with the best global travel deals.

"I’m excited to be partnering with TripADeal. As a rugby player, I have been lucky enough to travel to so many amazing places around the world, so it is an important part of my life," Carter says. "TripADeal will help New Zealanders achieve their travel dreams. With deals like these, TripADeal really makes travel affordable for everyone."

The Byron Bay based travel company, which was recently named the sixth fastest growing business in the Asia- Pacific Region by the London Financial Times and the Australian Financial Reviews Top 100 Fastest Growing Company two years in a row, has so far sent more than 60,000 travellers around the globe, a number that is set to dramatically grow following the launch in New Zealand.

TripADeal’s Tour, Cruise and Escape offerings are designed to appeal to every kind of traveller: group tours that let you take in the best sights and experiences, cruises through some of the world’s most incredible locations, and flexible escape deals, which allow you to fly, stay and play at the world’s best resorts and hotels with no tours attached.

"We are beyond excited to launch into New Zealand." says TripADeal Co-Founder, Richard Johnston. "I think New Zealand travellers have a very similar mindset to Australians, we both want to see the world, expand our knowledge and understanding of other cultures, and do it at a price that doesn’t break the bank."

"We’re especially excited to be working with Dan, one of the world’s greatest sportsmen. Dan’s values as a player and as a great all-round guy align perfectly with the values of TripADeal; a trusted travel company which will help make travel dreams that were previously thought impossible, possible." says Johnston.

Staying true to TripADeal’s tagline "Bucket list experiences at unbelievable prices", TripADeal’s launch deals will include trips to top destinations including China, the Maldives, Russia, Spain and Vietnam.

From the plains of the Serengeti to the Great Wall of China, the team at TripADeal has collectively travelled the world many times over, which is how they know exactly what makes a trip truly unforgettable.

TripADeal Co-Founder, Norm Black says of the launch, "The move to bring TripADeal into New Zealand was also a nod to our Kiwi team members. We have so many fantastic Kiwis on our team and they've been such an integral part of TripADeal's success, so it was an easy decision for us to launch across the ditch".

TripADeal’s packages are designed to take the hassle out of travel, allowing people of every age to experience the world’s best sights and destinations without the stresses that often come with self-organised travel.

TripADeal’s travel deals will be available to purchase at from 9am Thursday 11 October, subscribe to their database to keep up to date with their package offerings.
