Travel Startups Incubator Managing Partner, Matt Zito says “the tour and activity space is a fast growing global market. The adventure travel industry generated $263B in revenue in 2013, growing 24% annually the last 4 years. In a short period of time ABL’s team has been able to build a B2B platform and successfully onboard over 3,500 activities for sale with distribution from over 50 resellers.”
Adventure Bucket List has a back-end CRM that allows activity and tour companies to facilitate online bookings, manage their customers, track purchasing metrics and update availability/occupancy in real-time. Activity and tour companies can sign up for a free 30-day trial and be using the platform in seconds.
The sales and distribution platform includes an API designed to allow larger travel sites to integrate activities and tours into any part of their website. We are looking for media websites, airlines, hotels, accommodation websites and high-traffic travel industry related websites. The white-label widgets designed for smaller websites are dynamically broken down to 2 lines of code to allow for fast and seamless integration into any travel site.
