New Zealand’s original and premier online tour agent, Everything New Zealand (Est 2004) specialising in experiences nationwide has formed a strategic partnership with the Big Red Group which are the largest experience marketplace in Australia and New Zealand.
This exciting new venture will commence on the 1st of February 2023 with the head office being based in Queenstown. It will allow Everything New Zealand to leverage world-leading travel technology giving it the ability to scale its direct B2C and B2B markets with the latter being powered by Big Red Group’s ‘Local Agent’ concierge booking platform.
The goal of this new partnership is to bring together technology, scale and resources, combined with an established and locally run New Zealand company that has a long-term deep understanding of the tourism landscape. It will combine strong relationships and a desire to support the tourism industry by making bookings easy, more efficient and of great value to supply partners across a variety of channels.
“We have been talking to the Big Red Group for over 12 months and are very excited to have found a partner that is in line with our local values and desire to transform both the online travel space and technology solutions in the experiences sector from right here within New Zealand. This is a critical time for New Zealand’s tourism recovery, and we look forward to being part of driving the rebound with world-leading technology solutions”. says Matt Morgan, General Manager and Director of Everything New Zealand.
Specifically, the new technology will allow Everything New Zealand to offer the ability for resellers such as accommodation properties, airlines, rent-a-car companies and tourism bodies to deliver easy experience booking solutions for their customers, whilst providing high value and effective distribution for supply partners.
“We’re thrilled for Everything Travel Group to leverage our Local Agent platform, supporting New Zealand supply partners, and the broader travel and experience economy recovery. Across Australia and New Zealand, we’re seeing a renewed focus on providing a seamless customer experience, and technology solutions are a key part of this,” says David Anderson, Big Red Group Chief Executive Officer.
As tourism rebounds from the impacts of Covid19, having world-leading technology and travel solutions that help New Zealand companies efficiently sell and process experiences is an important part of owning the experience category.
