    TourOpp, a US-based corporation, officially launched their website on January 15, 2018 introducing the first marketplace for tour operators to sell empty seats on their one-day activities and tours.

    The company is looking to revolutionize the tours & activities industry by introducing the concept of revenue management, a concept used widely in other industries across the travel sector. Airlines, cruises, hotels, and car-rental companies are some of the most experienced and savvy industries utilizing yield management strategies.

    Paulo Irigoyen, VP of Business Development, stated that the tours and activities industry is far behind the travel sector in creating pricing models that benefit both, customers and companies. He went on to say that TourOpp felt there was a need for tour operators to maximize their occupancy and for clients to get incentives to book a one-day tour.

    The company’s website features more than 350 tours in 40 different cities across 4 different continents. All tours can be booked online and they offer at least a 30% discount on at least 3 days a month, but some have up to a 70% discount from the original price.

    Daniel Pino, TourOpp CEO recently stated that this a win-win situation for everyone and that tour operators get to fill out their empty seats on their slowest days of operation and clients get a really good deal on their tours. He went on to say that the reason tour operators are interested in offering such incentives is because their costs of operating such tours (gas, the driver of the bus, the tour guide, etc.) will be the same, regardless if they have 10 clients, or just one. An empty space on a tour is a loss for them, so instead they would rather offer an incentive to customers.

    Online travel agencies that market tours and activities directly to customers, like Viator and GetYourGuide, have gained popularity in the past 5 years and research suggests, this is a trend that will continue in the next few years. However, up until now, the pricing for all these tours has been static. On TourOpp’s website, a tour might have a different price on Mondays, than Fridays.

    TourOpp’s website does warn clients that, because tour operators are trying to fill their empty spaces only, the number of spaces is most of the times limited to only a few. As a consequence, the best deals are usually sold within a few days. The company’s suggestion is to book immediately after finding a good deal, if possible.

    Jossueth Irigoyen, TourOpp President, stated that TourOpp is on a mission to enable travelers to access unique activities and experiences during their trip, purchased at special prices that also reduce the implicit daily risk of tour operators.

    Whether one wants to tour ancient ruins in Cusco Peru, take a grand tour of Venice Italy, or a backseat motorcycle trip through Hanoi Vietnam,TourOpp gets heavily discounted prices on tours. Get more information at TourOpp.com and book an adventure.
