Tripping is the world’s largest metasearch platform for home rentals (think: Kayak for Airbnb).

With over 1 million local properties in 36,000+ cities, travelers have access to the widest selection of vacation and short-term rental homes worldwide. Tripping also offers Instant Bookings, so booking a vacation rental is now as easy as booking a hotel.

The company launched from TechCrunch Disrupt in NYC and has since raised a $1 million Seed round from Silicon Valley investors.
