TEP is the first digital tour operator that aggregates travelers with pets avoiding any regulatory restrictions concerning to pet transportation on board (cabin) towards to destinations of our tour packages.

I have assembled a strong skilled team of specialists with expertise in Italian market as for example Marco De Veglia – advisor n.1 in brand positioning that worked with Jack Trout (the inventor of positioning concept in the world) more than 20 years with base in NY city (USA). We solve the following problems to our customers:

  • a) regulatory restrictions for pets transportation;
  • b) no safety service is currently guaranteed to pet’s owners about transportation;
  • c) travelers often don’t leave without their pets or don’t feel transportation service as safety.;

Besides other reason why we think our business development may be very disruptive: Market segment not covered so far; No Tour operator offers for passengers with/and pets in cabin without regulatory restrictions and no TO with our value proposition unit; there is not guaranteed service for pet lovers. Commander can refuse pet boarding until the boarding at the gate;

Our main Solution concerns a new travel experience for travelers with pets avoiding any regulatory restrictions for pets on board towards to destinations of our tour packages (incoming, international, intercontinental).

Thanks to a certificated aircraft charter specialist we can allow pets with a secured and assisted pet’s boarding without any uncertainties or worries for pets’ owners .
