TGW Travel Group started out as an idea between two MBA students 8 years ago. After a brutal mid-term, they were discussing their travel experiences over a couple of beers. Both were avid travelers in their mid 20s and saw an opportunity to create a company that provides the traveler with a no-hassle, fun, local experience. It is very easy to book a flight and hotel online, but once you get to a certain destination, you are either lost, have to rely on an outdated travel book or are taken to tourist traps by locals working on commission. The TGW Concept is to provide travelers with a local experience as if you were visiting a friend in that destination.TGW not only makes sure you visit the destinations must-see daily attractions, but also takes care of you at night and provides you with a local contact you can call for any emergency or question. With this idea, the duo entered a Global Business Plan Competition with over a 100 participants from around the world and won!
