Funding, Partnership, Recruiting
In an industry that has gone largely unchanged in the last 20 years, HelloVacay seeks to reinvent the travel experience. We are a team of industry veterans and experts with a track record of success (e.g. Inc Magazine Fastest-Growing Private Companies). We are working to provide travelers all over the world with access to private, wholesale-priced inventory that has never been widely accessible before.
In 2020, we secured a partnership with Priceline for private membership rates that are not available on the public travel booking sites (e.g. Expedia, Trivago, etc.). Due to this partnership, HelloVacay is able to offer discounts of up to 50% and more off of the agreed-upon rates seen in ‘parity pricing’ with the known online travel brands.
In 2021, we have initiated a soft launch of the HelloVacay platform where we are able to offer travelers access to these private membership rates with ‘Netflix-style’ subscription pricing. This launch has been met with hundreds of user sign-ups and excitement in just the first few months. Ultimately, HelloVacay will be an aggregate of curated, wholesale-priced inventory and travel-related benefits.
Although our private, wholesale-priced travel rates would clearly be attractive to hundreds of millions of travelers within the $9.25 Trillion global travel and tourism industry, initially, we wish to narrow our marketing focus to the younger generations that are so inclined to opt for affordable, flexible subscription-based services through technology over the long-term, expensive commitments of travel clubs and timeshare.
We believe that the potential use case for decentralized crypto travel rewards/utility is a particularly strong one due largely to the already existing nature of travel rewards, points, miles, etc. We are seeking $1.5 to 2M in funding and access to competent blockchain developers.
Ultimately, HelloVacay has the opportunity to become the world’s most flexible and affordable travel club using the latest in blockchain crypto rewards with utility.
