Invest Early in the Team Creating Crypto’s Travel Future

Twenty years ago the rise of the internet gave online booking platforms the opportunity to take over the travel world.

Invest early and join the team that’s reinventing the travel experience.

What is HelloVacay?

What You’re Investing In


  • Experienced Team
    • 50 years of combined experience in the travel industry
  • Partnership with Priceline

Say Hello to VAYK Coin

The VAYK coin would offer members rewards for bookings and referrals—letting them earn coins while they, as well as their friends and family, save money every time they book travel with us. The VAYK coins acquired could then be spent back on discounted bookings through us and potentially on partner sites, or sold/traded on any supporting exchanges.

Problem: The Current System


The online travel industry has gone largely unchanged in more than twenty years—the average traveler gets prices that are all basically the same. Discounted vacations are seldom found outside of rigid timeshare ownerships and costly travel clubs—we have been stuck with an antiquated unaffordable system.

  • Currently Travelers Are:
    • Paying more than necessary
    • Getting a less-than-ideal booking experience
    • Offered dubious discounts and an appearance of competition
    • Stuck with too many travel currencies
    • Offered limited payment options
  • Why These Problems Exist:
    1. Parity Pricing—All major platforms have nearly identical rates. An agreement between OTAs and hotels ensures that there aren’t cheaper prices elsewhere
    2. Artificially High Rates—Because of Parity Pricing, platforms often force hotels and resorts to artificially mark up rates. Travelers get “marked down” prices that are an illusion of savings
    3. Lack of Innovation—Major platforms put advertising first and technology last, focusing on optimizing marketing and ad costs rather than UX and tech development

The Solution: A New System

In partnership with Priceline, HelloVacay offers discounted booking rates without the initial expense of a travel club. Our subscription-based platform gets around parity pricing and our members are able to book travel, car rentals and airfare all from one place.

On top of this, decentralized rewards and blockchain functionality will continually improve the booking experience for our members through our centralized subscription model—in essence, both centralized and decentralized methods will create a better travel system.

  • HelloVacay Travelers:
    • Pay up to 60% less by using a system that isn’t constrained to parity pricing
    • Can get access to discounted car rental, book flights and various travel activities from one place
    • Get real deals without worrying about blackout dates or other up-charges/gimmicks
    • Can easily earn and convert travel rewards all in one place

In the last nine years, the subscription economy grew 6x—more than 435%. Subscription businesses have also grown on average 5x to 8x faster than traditional businesses. HelloVacay’s is a hybrid model that creates revenue through membership subscription fees and commissions on bookings.

Why the Travel Industry?


  • A History of Points
    • The travel industry has used points for years. It is a practical use case with a familiar user base
  • Broken Industries and Open Inventory
    • Sections of the travel industry (like timeshares) have an abundance of unused inventory—a system like ours could put it to use
  • Travelers Prefer Hotels and Resorts
    • Contrary to popular belief, 76% of millennials prefer to stay in professionally managed hotels rather than rentals like Airbnb
