Wanderlust becomes reality for student Karina with her business venture

Date 15.07.2019

If you close your eyes and dream of relaxing on hot, white sands, or perhaps buzzing city backstreets immersed in another culture is your thing, then University of Northampton Student, Karina (Coriena) Tuitt’s, has you covered with her new business venture, Luxplorer.

21-year-old Londoner, Karina, who is studying Events Management at the University of Northampton, has launched her own travel brand, Luxplorer, which plans travel for young people aged 18-30. Coriena has blended her passion for travel, along with her academic studies and her epic organisational skills to help you turn that dream getaway into reality with her business.

Speaking about her vision for Luxplorer, Karina said: “I’ve love to travel, and I’ve always had entrepreneurial spirit. In October 2017, when my world turned upside down with the dead of my sister, I felt I needed to find something to give me some focus. Out of my pain, and I’m sure a little help from my sister, Leena, came the idea for Luxplorer. The butterfly in the Luxplorer Logo represents her.

“Since then, I’ve worked really hard to create Luxplorer alongside my studies, and have used elements of my university course at Northampton to help make by business come to life. In particular, my modules on tourism, marketing and events logistics have been really helpful in making my business model come together.

“From short city breaks to bucket-list-worthy adventure trips, Luxplorer can handle it all. I’ve designed itineraries with the right balance of exploring the corner of the Earth you’re interested in, to total downtime for you to recharge your batteries, and all with Instagram worthy backdrops. Luxplorer is a Directory being built from scratch. You can also book flights, hotels, activities, restaurants and more.”

Karina has already partnered with Instagram influences like Shantania Beckford and Amel Rachedi, creating bespoke travel for them, which was Insta-ready and aligned to their own personal brands. Karina is also an influencer for her own brand and inspires people to explore the world with her travel and foodie posts.

Not only can you book all your travel essentials through Luxplorer; you can also grab those holiday must haves in the online shop. Before you book your summer holiday, make sure you check out Luxplorer.
