Local tourism will be the first to bloom

In the short term (3-12 months after the crisis) it's possible that flying and other forms of international travel will be restricted.

Country by country as things get better once the virus has passed there is still likely to be restrictions on inbound and outbound tourism.

This will not mean tourism cannot flourish on the domestic level. Indeed if China is anything to compare too, domestic tourism is set to increase.

Toristy has developed a model that enables destination transportation companies and hotels the ability to sell tours, activities and experiences like an OTA via their own website. There are 3 main benefits.

  • Fast deployment (under 3 days to implement on any website) helps both the channel partners and the tour and activity operators.
  • Works with other reservation tools & partners (upon launch we will have 12,000 tours and activities we can sell in destination)
  • Puts the operator services in front of travellers when they are travelling (or booking)

Ferry Channels

Consumer ferry companies that travel between destinations have a massive opportunity to benefit from selling tours, activities, experiences and events directly from their websites.

Most ferry companies today sell in destination through agents and take a commission. Those same services can be sold directly through their website, their on board screens, or cabin monitors. The problem has always been that the technology and supplier chain was difficult to manage.

Toristy solves this problem

We continuously onboard suppliers that cover the routes the ferries operate in. Then we provide technology tailored to the ferry that matches, the look, feel and the user interface of their own website to provide a white label experience. 

  • Visitors to destinations can book after they buy their ferry ticket or when travelling
  • Suppliers get visibility in Destination
  • The ferry gets revenue from supplier commissions

Airline Channels

Airlines have tremendous competition and are at the moment facing a threat to their existence with many countries having to bail out their national airlines. 

Assuming air travel is ramped up domestically and rates are attractive there is a very good opportunity for airlines to earn revenues from tours and activities whilst the operators can benefit from traffic to the airlines websites thus reducing the need for long haul for both the airline and the operators. 

Toristy can assist the airlines in fast goto market opportunities

We can embed a white labelled experience selling the tours, activities, attractions and events directly on the airlines website and this can be done quickly.  

  • Visitors to destinations can book after they buy their airline ticket (i.e. London tours sold after buying tickets to London)
  • Suppliers get visibility on airline routes 
  • The airline gets revenue from supplier commissions from up-sells it normally wouldn't get.

Coach and Bus Channels

Popular coach and bus company routes also have an opportunity to create new revenue streams through tours, attractions, activities, experiences and events.

Most coach or bus companies have the ability to sell tickets to their destinations on their websites or in their apps, but not many of them are taking advantage of the tours, activities and attractions on their routes. 

Toristy can help coach companies act as resellers

We continuously onboard suppliers that cover the routes the coaches drive. Then we provide technology tailored to the company that matches, the look, feel and the user interface of their own website to provide a white label experience.

  • Visitors to destinations can book after they buy their coach ticket or when travelling
  • Suppliers get visibility in Destination
  • The coach company gets revenue from supplier commissions

Train channels

Trains are one of the most environmentally friendly ways to travel at high speed, over long distances between destinations and yet very few of train companies take advantage of the attractions on their routes. 

We want to change that. When a customer buys a ticket to "city X" the train company could provide options as to all things on sale in "City X" that might improve the travellers experience there.

New revenue stream 

Most train operators we have seen sell onboard refreshments, provide loyalty programs and more. This however is a way to help suppliers get visibility through the popularity of your website whilst also earning a new revenue stream.

  • Visitors can book after they buy their train ticket or when travelling via an app or online
  • Suppliers get visibility in Destination
  • The train company gets revenue from supplier commissions

Concierge & DMC channels

No-one knows destinations better than a Hotel concierge or a destination management company. 

Many DMCs already earn from tours activities and attractions in destination. However concierges aren't really taking advantage of the online channel or hotel room screens. DMCs book itineraries for small groups at a time when they could look at scaling up or expanding their attractions portfolio.

We want to help these things happen

We continuously onboard suppliers that cover the destinations you work in. Then we provide technology tailored to the hotel that matches, the look, feel and the user interface of their own website to provide a white label experience. The DMC can manage itineraries at a glance from suppliers across their own (and other available networks) wether they're working inbound or outbound.

  • Visitors to destinations can book after they check in
  • Suppliers get visibility in Destination
  • DMCs and Hotels get a new revenue stream

Sustainable development

Selling to local, in destination transport companies opens up not only a new revenue stream for the transport company but great visibility for the attraction operator who normally would have a hard time being found.

Set-up for is free and commission charges are 15% split between Toristy and the new channel we create.

An operator doesn't need to use our reservation software to sell on our in destination channels.

If supply is weak in a specific area we can offer sign ups via a channel site, allowing immediate onboarding through a channel.

We believe In Destination channels can help local industry thrive in each market we operate in.
