Tyrese wants eyes on new business venture, Voltron Travel

Tyrese Gibson is looking for attention as he’s begun a new business venture.

Voltron Travel is a travel booking agency under parent company Voltron Enterprises, Inc. With no marketing dollars, no staff, the musician and actor known for appearing in five “Fast and Furious” installments is trying to get his followers attention on social media. Tyrese and his daughter appear to be dancing and dabbing in front of a blow up doll on an Instagram video Tyrese posted Saturday to advertise Voltron Travel.

This service helps consumers save money when booking flights and hotels, according to Voltron Travel’s website.

“Savings calculated based on the cost of a Flight + Hotel booking through VoltronTravel.com as compared to the aggregated price of the full published fare given by the airline and the cost of your hotel for the same travel products for the same travel dates when made separately,” it reads on the website.

The start up company that’s come to live last month has booked 500 requests, according to Tyrese.

Through the Instagram video Tyrese is hoping people check out the website VoltronTravel.com. However, he urges to his followers he wants a little more than a visit to the company’s website.

“Don’t just look, book,” Tyrese said.

Ready why Tyrese once decided to work with the FBI.
