TripFusion by Vacayou is turning the tide with cutting-edge software designed to provide a flawless wellness travel booking experience. TripFusion empowers hotels and resorts to package rooms with spa and wellness experiences and activity bookings, bringing these two trends together, and catering to this wildly lucrative market of health-conscious travelers.
The travel industry is operating in a new era, where convenience and customization are not just valued but expected. Consumers want cohesive, personalized, stress-free experiences. The global wellness economy, meanwhile, is booming, expected to reach $8.5 trillion by 2027.
Vacayou is a leading wellness travel marketplace founded in 2019 by Muirgheal Montecalvo, an industry veteran with an entrepreneurial spirit. Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, Vacayou curates the best experiences geared to wellness travelers, a market willing to spend 177% more than average travelers, especially on spa experiences.
But after several years in business, the team at Vacayou came to the realization that, despite the demand for wellness travel, the process of designing spa and wellness packages was strangely cumbersome for both guest and hotelier.
The Fragmentation Frustration
The traditional travel booking model is often fragmented and frustrating for consumers trying to reserve additional services with their hotel or resort room in advance. In an age where efficiency is everything, the inconvenience of managing multiple booking processes has become an outdated and costly affair.
So they asked: as more people look for retreat and restoration, how can hotels best accommodate this high-yield travel? Enter TripFusion, Vacayou’s innovative B2B SaaS solution. TripFusion elegantly syncs a hotel’s reservation systems with its ancillary amenities and services, ensuring that never again will a hotel guest arrive to find that the spa is fully booked or their activity bookings don’t line up with their hotel reservations.
TripFusion’s unique solution
TripFusion addresses fragmentation frustration head-on with a dynamic booking system that enables guests to customize their stay and amenities through a single, streamlined checkout process. As a guest selects room accommodations, they have the option right in the checkout screen to select available services and activities, like spa appointments and other experiences, in real-time. The hotel guest is happy because they can immediately know if the spa services and wellness experiences they want to book will be available to them — before hitting that payment button.
The value this brings to hospitality groups and spas is enormous – not only does it elevate the customer experience, it also increases spa revenue, revenue per occupied room (RevPOR), and significantly reduces administrative tasks.
Beyond the booking: the guest experience
Between multiple emails and calls, a splintered booking process is simply not conducive to a good guest experience, even with the most professional staff. TripFusion is designed with the guest experience at its core. For the spa concierge, gone are the hours of back and forth conversations and emails with guests. By offering a seamless booking process that allows guests to reserve appointments in tandem with their rooms, TripFusion eliminates the friction that typically comes with separate bookings.
TripFusion’s is a complete solution to the disjointed problem. The game-changing technology doesn’t just simplify the booking process, it creates a seamless bridge between a hotel’s reservation system and spa ancillary amenities and experiences in real-time, utilizing AI-powered dynamic packages to maximize efficiency and profitability.
