TrekkSoft and Bokum

TrekkSoft partners with Bokun to consolidate European travel market

Posted by Nicole Kow on Nov 21, 2016

We've partnered with Bókun, the leading tourism sales platform based in Iceland. Combined, TrekkSoft and Bókun will offer a B2B marketplace with over 30,000 bookable products.

The TrekkSoft-Bókun B2B marketplace will be the biggest inventory list in Europe, eglobal resellers to “have Europe covered” in terms of inventory. The existing 2000+ combined clients using Bókun and TrekkSoft will also be able to resell each other’s products via the joint marketplace. 

While Bókun offers a world-class marketplace solution to customers across all sectors of the travel industry, including hotels and transportation, we've produced a tailor-made payment gateway solution for booking systems worldwide. This solution enables auto-splitting payment between sellers and suppliers, where the net rate is automatically paid to suppliers and the commission to sellers. This feature is to be released next year and we believe that it will save companies the overhead costs of manual invoicing.

Together, the marketplace and the payment gateway solution will improve operations of tour and activity companies greatly as well as give resellers access to the whole European market through one platform.

Hjalti Baldursson, CEO of Bókun, is convinced: “We’re excited to bring TrekkSoft’s suppliers to the Marketplace, giving them the ability to collaborate and create new revenue streams via cross-selling and greatly enhancing the Marketplace product range. This marketplace could be a game changer for our industry”.

Jon Fauver, CEO of TrekkSoft, adds, “We have always been impressed with what Bókun has achieved in Iceland. This collaboration is a logical step for both of us to bring more value to our users and our partners. I would love to see more cooperation amongst the booking system providers to solve distribution problems.”
