Kiteschool Operator
Bonaire Kite School runs kite-surfing lessons in Bonaire. They follow the curriculum of the International Kiteboarding Organization and ensure beginners a safe start to their kite-surfing career.
The Challenge
It is a time-consuming task to manage tours and activities on multiple re-seller’s websites, each with its own specifications and availability calendars – not to mention trying to remember all those login details. This way of managing bookings is a ticking time-bomb, unless you spend a lot of time cross-referencing your listings manually. Many smaller tour operators are intimidated by the large volume of work that is needed to manage multiple re-seller listings and are put off by the likelihood of making mistakes.
Bonaire Kite School’s Unique Challenge
Caribious Solutions and Bonaire Kite School were already partners, with them using our online booking system on their own website. But, we saw the potential to plug into other sales channels such as Viator, Tripadvisor and Getyourguide – the largest travel agents for booking tours and activities.
The Solution
Through our partnerships with these big name companies, we were able to offer Bonaire Kite School a simple solution. Caribious Solutions was able to connect the kite school’s booking management system automatically with other online travel agents – no extra costs involved. Acting as the middle man, we update availability on both ends, ensuring that all platforms have the right calendar and bookings.
Through our seamless booking management integration with third-party online travel agents, lessons at Bonaire Kite School can now be booked through, and Kite School's website automatically syncs with calendars on all these re-seller listings, ensuring that availability is all up to date. The school has been able to boost their sales significantly and is now bookable in multiple languages across the globe.
