Online travel company, Travel Trade Marketplace (TTM), launches Tourism-ID as a travel portal dedicated to personnel working in travel and tourism sectors to enjoy industry rates and privileges.

Employment is strong as many travel segments attain full recovery from Covid. Many people have also joined the industry for the first time. However, many companies and positions, such as those working behind the scenes, do not enjoy direct access to industry rates and privileges. Current authentication process is tedious and available to some segments only. Visiting individual websites can be confusing and time consuming.

Tourism-ID is built like OTA sites to be user friendly on web and mobile but imposes zero sales commissions. It provides online authentication to verify and qualify applicants, taking away an important but time-consuming task from operators. All just a small processing fee, the portal also offers useful tools like group rate enquiry and hotels’ F&B reservations so that there’s dining benefits even when not travelling. It strives to benefit sellers and buyers; travel operators and industry personnel respectively.

In its marketing partnership, Brand-TD has a dedicated travel portal cobranded with Tourism-ID to manage their own members. Brand-TD can further enhance the program’s benefits by creating offers from its own network of travel operators and partners.



Fred Seow, Founder & CEO of Travel Trade Marketplace said: “We created this portal to help ourselves since sellers and buyers are within the same industries. As a common platform, we create greater synergy, exposure and productivity. We want everyone in this industry to easily enjoy the fruits of their dedication. We are honoured to have Brand-TD as a marketing partner. As a household media brand, their involvement endorses the program and our aspirations to create stronger values for the industry’s greatest asset: people.”

All personnel in travel and tourism are invited to register for a personal user account to enjoy industry rates and privileges for personal travel by visiting Tourism-ID, Brand-TD or TTG Asia’s websites. The online authentication process ensures applicants are active in the industry and protects operators’ special rates and privileges.
