Suite Travel is the start-up (invented by two women) that is changing
the way to book holidays

A flexible, smart, direct and friendly shopping experience: this is the concept of Suite Travel, a newly created network of travel agencies that aims to sell holidays where no one has ever done it before. The debut? In the Coin stores in Rome and Naples

Beyond the dynamics of the traditional travel agency, Suite Travel was born, or the first network of co-branded travel agencies in Italy. The idea is of the entrepreneurs Giada Marabotto e Antonella Rupertboth with a long experience in the world of tourism and owners of two independent agencies.

L’idea.
Suite Travel is the start-up that wants to change the ways and contexts of buying a holiday: no longer the classic agency, but corner-living rooms with a warm and welcoming atmosphere – like a suite – present in bookstores, cafes, shopping centers or other places dedicated to free time. Available to customers, by appointment, there is the Suite Travel consultants networkthat is travel experts who can support customers from the choice phase to departure: you can decide to organize an informal chat vis à vis, and at a later stage, simply book your trip online or over the phone, with no restrictions on times and days of closure. In short, it is a hybrid and hyper-flexible formula, which offers valuable added value compared to what is usually found on web platforms, but which at the same time differs from classic agencies. The debut? In September 2021 in Coin store in Naples in via Scarlatti and in Rome San Giovanni, eager to have – within their new and multifaceted “lifestyle hub” – also the world of travel. The goal for 2022? Open new corners by expanding the network of consultants (currently the network is made up of 12 professionals).

Why now.

In this new world shaped by the pandemic, Suite Travel designs the road map to overcome the crisis in the sector by enhancing the figure of the travel consultant: an expert person capable of making himself available to the customer to help him choose the ideal destination and prepare the documentation. If traveling has become more complicated than in the past, Suite Travel proposes itself as the solution to simplify, thanks to a team that is always updated on legal provisions, travel passes and tourist corridors. To enjoy your holiday like in the pre-Covid era.

A female enterprise.

Suite Travel was born in full pandemic from the meeting between Giada Marabotto and Antonella Ruperto: two entrepreneurs, both owners of travel agencies (the first in Genoa, the second in Mentana in the province of Rome), book authors and business coaches. In a historical moment of great crisis for organized tourism, two women – potentially competing with each other – get to know each other and decide to join forces to invent something new. The result is a mix of their professionalism and personality: Ruperto the most creative and whimsical, with a strong network of contacts, Marabotto the most rational and methodical, with a solid background in marketing.

Giada Marabotto and Antonella Ruperto

At the latest edition of TTG Travel Experiencewere included in the shortlist as “Character of the Year“In the world of tourism (read who). The motivation for the candidacy? “Travel agents who, at a time when there was no product on the shelf to sell, were able to reinvent themselves and find a new formula”.

Tourism of the future (well done).

The whole world in one corner: Suite Travel, thanks to the network of external consultants and the know-how of classic travel agencies, is able to offer its customers an infinite number of destinations and types of holidays (proposed on the website Suitetour.it). However Antonella Ruperto and Giada Marabotto have decided to treasure everything that has happened in the last two years, focusing with determination on holidays in the name of sustainability, both social and environmental. Among the most interesting initiatives, the partnership with Up2You for zero-emission travel: together with the package, those who buy from Suite Travel receive a coupon that allows them to discover all the sustainable projects (strictly certified) and choose which one to support. In addition, the founders wanted to create a green catalog (“Ethics”), entirely dedicated to travelers who respect the environment and are looking for a more attentive, slow, responsible tourism in harmony with the territory (click who to download it): many proposals to choose from, ranging from “Glamping in Venice” to dirt bike itineraries on Lake Garda, from staying in a yurt on the Gran Sasso to digital detox in Procida. Finally Suite Travel, always with a view to a new type of tourism generated by the pandemic earthquake, is also active in incoming with a catalog all dedicated to Lazio: inside proposals off the beaten track such as bike tour on the Appia Antica or the harvest in the Roman Castles.
