Friends that travel will stay friends forever, and no one knows better than Gabrielle Profit and Katrina Craft Trifilo. The fun duo and long-time friends who love exploring and traveling decided to merge their skills and passion for adventure and start a full-service travel agency – Besties That Travel.
Besties That Travel Was Intended to be a Travel Blog
Trifilo remembers that initially, the idea behind Besties that Travel was to be presented as a travel blog during their 2020 trip to Destin. However, due to the pandemic and freeze on travel, the two besties decided to post about all previous travels and share their experience publicly, so they started getting inquiries from people asking for advice.
After seeking guidance and assistance with logistics, the two best friends became business partners and started Besties That Travel. Another great plus for the duo was Profit’s working experience as a travel agent for the last four years.
The duo offers custom-tailored packages for clients such as couples, solo travelers, groups, and corporate travelers. Services include but are not limited to reserving flights, lodging, private transportation, planning excursions, and daily itineraries.
The Travel Duo With Several Upcoming Ventures
The “besties” are both New Orleans natives and have always had their travel passion and shared road tripping experiences together for over 10 years. Slowly turning their hobby into a legitimate, fully sustainable business comes just naturally.
Besties That Travel has planned several upcoming ventures and includes a women’s group excursion scheduled for October 2021 to Bali, Indonesia. The two friends have opened up 10 spots and quickly sold out. The duo is excited to explore the tropical islands with a group of like-minded women. What makes this trip even more special is the fact that this would be their first trip as a company.
The besties are also launching a new travel apparel line, BTT Apparel in the Summer of 2021.
