Booking your holidays is always fun,Checking brochures or looking on the web and so on,The next bit can be tedious which is paying for it.Most of the time people pay a small deposit or lump sum and some perhaps pay outright there an then,the latter being in the minority. So after that is where the annoying bit comes in when you have to go back and drop off more money and most likely sit in a que and then sit at a table waiting for all the info to be noted and so on,TravTab eliminates all of the above and is coming soon to Irish Travel agents and then internationally..One great feature here with this app is the “Group Bookings” feature which a lead passenger has the ability to add members and assign each member their outstanding balance and users get notified when payments have been made,this idea will also make it more streamlined for the travel agent itself too…

Alan Masterson CEO and Founder tells us some more..

My name is Alan Masterson I am the founder of TravTab. I began working on TravTab since last July when I booked a holiday. Soon after I was in work and literally had a light bulb moment, which I was listening for some years to happen as iv always wanted to start my own business.

With this idea, that day, after work I went home and plotted the idea out on paper with the help of my father and proved it was a viable business idea. From there I contacted LEO and applied for a mentor. I’ve been mentored since August up until last month which was priceless to me. My mentor was exceptional and went above and beyond the normal mentoring criteria which I learned and grew in so many ways in such a small space of time. 


During the past 7-8 months from having an “idea”, I have developed TravTab from scratch. From sourcing web developers, accountants, applying for trademarks, setting up bank accounts, creating the company name, finding a mentor, identifying potential customers, finding how to monetise the business, going part time in the day job it’s been a crazy few months but the best few to be honest.
TravTab is fully funded and bootstrapped by itself.
 TravTab is run by myself and the now COO Darren Murray who joined in March of this year. TravTab has a fully functional mobile App operating on both iOS & Android along with a webpage page profiling TravTabs service. 

We are currently pursuing sales leads and are in talks with travel agents to launch TravTab. We are very excited about TravTabs future!
