What is Hangout on Holiday?

Essentially it’s a global communications platform for your local community to interact via Live chat with travellers to your resort before, during and after their trip.

Hangout on Holiday have launched a pioneering, Resort based Travel App that uniquely connects Travellers to Trips (Experiences), Places, Events, Offers and to other Travellers & local services in the Resort they are travelling to, via Live Chat, before, during and after their holiday.

What makes us unique, is the Live Chat facility within the APP.  Our goal is to have a "Hangout Local" connected to the APP in every Global Holiday Destination.  Someone that a traveller can contact to obtain useful hyper-local information.

Who's behind it?

Brought to you by the original team behind Europe’s leading Transfer provider Holiday Taxis, we are a management team of seasoned travel industry professionals (all ex Reps) and we’ve now created a really cool communications and revenue generating platform now being used by some of the world’s leading Travel Operators.

We launched our new App over 3 years ago to the travel trade (B2B) and it’s gaining significant traction with major Operators like Destination Services (one of Tui’s global brands) and Olympic Holidays whilst hitting the press on many occasions.

What is a Hangout Local?

Hangout Local  is someone that has a comprehensive knowledge of their local resort, town or village and would like to share their passion by either harnessing their own existing network or by building a community through the Hangout platform.

You would be our local collaborator, influencer, partner, local hero and/or resort expert who can be the eyes and ears of your community on our App.

Why do we need you?

Over the next month we will be launching a network of 'LOCALS' in Holiday Destinations who will then become a key part of helping to re-engage understandably nervous travellers with your local businesses.

Throughout the coming weeks/months we need you to post on the App, regular updates on how things are evolving in your community.

Once established in your community as our Hangout Local and once the travellers start to head back, you will  benefit from the commercial opportunities built into the App and be rewarded for your efforts. This will be in the form of a commission share on excursions, trips, events, experiences, car/bike rental and any other ancillaries guests want to buy in-App.

p.s. There is a huge opportunity to up-sell a white labelled version of the Hangout platform to local operators and suppliers.
