TravelRegistry.co.nz started development in Australia during late 2006, and was officially launched to a local market on Tuesday March 3, 2009. The 'Travel Registry idea' came from business founder Damian's experience in organising his own wedding.
"We felt that we already had everything we needed at home, so a traditional department store bridal registry would be wasted on us. Rather than have our guests buy us gifts that we couldn't really use, we decided it would be great if they could contribute to our honeymoon." We opened our US / Global branch of the site in early 2014 and expanded to New Zealand in early 2015.
After looking at various other online registry services, some claiming to be honeymoon specific services, Damian found that they all wanted to charge a really high percentage of the amount our guests contributed. This didn't seem fair - so, he created his own 'honeymoon registry'.
During 2012 we embarked on a total overhaul of Travel Registry and with that we introduced lots of new features including the ability to host a Travel Registry for a different type of event, such as a birthday or baby shower. This overhaul was the result of lots of feedback over the years and we were excited to be able to tailor our registry system to the specific needs of our customers.
We love what we do and we love talking about it! If you have any questions about our service, please feel free to contact us. We are more than happy to answer your questions!
