The tripwolf Manifesto defines 21st Century Travelers


The online travel guide knows how 21st century travelers tick: The tripwolf manifesto has been shaped by the collective travel experiences of more than 50,000 registered „tripwolves," almost 2 million visits per month to, and over 100,000 tripwolf iPhone app users.



With the manifesto ( the tripwolf community gives itself a strong identity and defines what digital nomads are all about, revealing interesting insights about this new target group for the travel and advertising industry.


The tripwolf Manifesto shows the characteristics and needs of so-called Digital Nomads and Flashpackers. They are a group of mostly young travelers for whom the internet, social networks and their own individuality are essential for their trips. Our manifesto defines the tripwolf community as well as a whole new trend of traveler" says tripwolf co-founder Sebastian Heinzel.


The tripwolf Manifesto: Important Points

Members of the tripwolf community see themselves as travelers, not tourists. Whether in a distant country or in their own hometown, tripwolves want to immerse themselves completely in a place, and avoid superficial information targetted for traditional tourists. The Internet allows them to be in contact with locals and become their most important tool before, during and after any trip. Personal recommendations from acquaintances and friends, through lively exchange of information on the Internet, replace the role of travel agencies and other intermediaries.
