Many know Tyrese Gibson as an actor and musician, with his roles in both the “Transformers” and “Fast & Furious” franchises. He has also released six studio albums. However, Tyrese has experience in other industries as well. He has co-created a three-issue comic book series in 2009, as well as written two New York Times best-selling books.
Voltron travel was launched back in 2013 under its parent company Voltron Enterprises. However, it received little media coverage and seemingly died down after some time. According to a video on Tyrese’s Facebook page, Voltron was revamped with a soft launch in 2017.
By the end of 2020, a series of posts across his social media accounts have him calling attention to his travel brand once again, with much more success.
He says on Instagram about the business in February of 2021, “They told me to leave it alone… glad I didn’t listen.”
The goal of the brand is to offer travel that’s luxurious and simple. Voltron Travel’s sleek, user-friendly website offers bookings for flights, car rentals, and hotels. It also emphasizes their large selection of resorts and hotels, unparalleled customer service, and up to 25% savings.
Additionally, Tyrese sets out to use his newfound success as a business owner for good. A video clip on his Instagram account explains how he recently approached a homeless family on the street to offer them a place to stay for a night. The actor was in Kamloop Canada filming for a new project, where temperatures had reached -7 degrees Fahrenheit. He offered the family of six a meal and three unoccupied hotel rooms in conjunction with his travel business.
While Voltron travel is still in many ways just taking off, the business has serious potential. With a little more word of mouth advertising, it’s sure to grow.
