The real cost of low cost booking software

Let me tell you the story of TrekkSoft. Our company was founded in 2010 by 3 partners - Jon Fauver, an experienced rafting guide and co-owner of Outdoor Interlaken, Philippe Willi, co-owner of Outdoor Interlaken and Valentin Binnedijk, co-owner of an e-commerce and web design agency.

TrekkSoft was built in Interlaken, Switzerland at the request of tour and activity operators in the region who were desperate for a booking management tool that could help their businesses to connect together and grow. We like to say that TrekkSoft was built by tour operators for tour operators as they were instrumental to our product.

Since 2010, we've grown to have offices and staff around the world. We are constantly speaking to our customers, researching industry insights and innovating our product to keep our mission to 'Make the world's activities bookable'. We want to help companies grow as we grow and our pricing models reflect this.

How to upsell activities during the booking process with add-ons

Add-ons are a brilliant way to provide your customers with a wide range of options and let them build the most memorable experience possible. If you book a dive in Bali, you'd probably be interested in a photo package add-on, right? What about a travel insurance package?

As a TrekkSoft booking software user, you can now upsell your tours and activities with add-ons during the booking process. It's an important addition to the TrekkSoft platform, and we're proud of it!

The previous add-ons functionality on TrekkSoft allowed your customers to add Single-Item Add-ons (like hoodies, mugs and souvenirs) or Guest-Bound Add-ons (like photo packages or travel insurance) to the cart during the booking process and purchase everything in one transaction. But from now on, you can also upsell your activities by displaying add-on options during the booking process.

This is a great way to assist your customers in creating their ideal itinerary on your website, and it can also increase average basket value and give some of your less popular activities a boost.

To understand how to get started with the add-ons feature, we'd recommend that you check out our release notes. But as a brief overview, you'll be able to select relevent add-ons for each tour and activity like so: 



After selecting your add-ons, when a customer goes to pay they can then be greeted with the option to "choose add-ons"...




And choose from your range of tempting offers! We're excited to see how you use add-ons to develop new revenue opportunities for your business in 2016 and beyond.




At TrekkSoft we live and work in the heart of the tour and activity industry. Request a software demo with our team in Interlaken, Switzerland and apply our expertise to your business:
