New Online Travel Innovation Tixton Launches in Indonesia


Jakarta, INDONESIA, 3 March 2016 – Travelling has become a lifestyle for many Indonesians and is increasing over the years. According to the Visa Global Travel Intentions Study 2015 , Indonesians are expected to take an average of five trips in the next two years, which is more than the global average of three trips. In 2016, Tixton, an online portal for users to buy and sell unused hotel rooms, enters the Indonesia travel market as a game changer.
There are many circumstances where travellers have had a change of plan in their trip, resulting in them having to cancel their non-refundable hotel rooms or book a hotel room at the last minute. Tixton enters the Indonesian market aiming to give a peace of mind to those who need to cancel their non-refundable hotel rooms for their trip, as well to those who are looking for a hotel room at the last minute, at an attractive rate.
“Flexible rooms in today’s market are generally 20% to 50% more expensive than non-refundable rooms. This often creates a dilemma for travellers when they are about to book their hotel rooms. Through Tixton, we aim to solve this by providing travellers with an alternative solution to recover their losses with future better deals. In other words, we want to transform travel waste into sweet deals, which is our company vision,” said Alfredo Setiabudi, Managing Director of Tixton.
At Tixton, users are able to sell their unused hotel rooms at 30% its original price and get the credit immediately without having to wait for it to be sold. The credit, also called Toncoin, can be used for future purchases.
Additionally, buyers are able to buy unused hotel rooms at an attractive rate of up to 40% off the normal hotel rate. Tixton also guarantees its website provides hotel rooms at the lowest price, and hopes to be a solution for last minute travellers.
“Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with many beautiful destinations. We can see that the number of hotels is also on the rise, especially with the recent announcement to promote 10 main travel destinations in Indonesia. Tixton is very excited at entering the Indonesia market and we want to empower today’s travellers and help them save money, simply,” he added.
Tixton is currently giving away a one-time use coupon worth IDR 200,000 for those who sign up and make their first purchase.
