The story of Trippz?

Good question! Who in his right mind thinks about starting a business in ‘Making Lodging Tax Easy’.

Illustration of
  • One night around the campfire
    Actually, that’s not how it happened... Trippz is an idea born out of personal experience. Our founder Ingmar rented out a chalet in the Austrian mountains for a quite a while and at some point grew increasingly frustrated with the hassle and time involved around dealing with his lodging tax obligations.
    Collecting guest information, holding on to payments, receiving monthly invoices from the municipality.....there were no great customer experiences in this process for sure!

  • And then there was lunch
    On a sunny June afternoon Ingmar had a chat with a friend, who was working at the world’s biggest booking platform. As it turned out, lodging tax handling was also quite a challenge on their end. This is where the Trippz journey really took off.

  • So here we are
    The 30th of June 2020 Trippz was founded. Early 2024 we are proudly serving the world’s biggest travel platforms from our Lodging Taxes Platform, and offering our services to hosts and governments across the EU. The best part? That’s still to come!

Dealing with lodging taxes on a regular basis, Ingmar felt it could and should be so much easier. Coming from a background of Customer Experience and Technology the outline for Trippz was born. 
All he needed was a few companions...

After sharing his secondary school life with Ingmar, Jeroen quickly went on a journey to Spain ánd full-stack-development. Whenever he is not coding, you will find him on the MTB trails in the Pyrenees (or whatever other mountains he can find), although he has relocated back to the Netherlands (for now).

  • EU only
    As a company, based in the Netherlands, we operate our services purely from within the EU. Our cloud-based servers are all EU-based and whatever data we need to store, we do it there.
    That’s all there is to say about it!

  • GDPR compliance
    Although SOC2 has an extensive privacy-scope, it does not cover all aspects of the GDPR. As such, we made sure that on top of SOC2 we also comply with all regulations set within the GDPR framework.

Rien Coertjes

“Trippz trusts us to do our work the best way we see fit. It gives me the freedom the schedule my work around my personal life instead of the other way around. I love that I can go to pick up my daughter from daycare early or go for a bike ride during lunch, I make up the “lost” time in the evening or over the weekend.”

Clizia Campoccia

Izaak de Hesselle

Content Editor

“Working at Trippz has been an interesting and diverse experience so far. As a start-up the roles in itself aren’t necessarily very black and white, which allows you to take on multiple hats leading to diversification and development of your skills. Studying lodging taxes in itself continues to be an opaque process, but it’s a rewarding feeling to contribute, as Trippz, to creating clarity in this tax jungle.”
