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. Today the 9.25 trillion dollar travel industry is ready to be disrupted again, this time by organizations building with decentralized blockchain technologies. Invest early and join the team that’s reinventing the travel experience.

HelloVacay has already begun building the network, negotiating the discounts and working with technologists to create a new travel experience. We envision a system and currency that will empower everyone to travel more often at a discounted rate while being awarded along the way (see here for more details).

What You’re Investing In


  • Experienced Team
    • With a combined 50 years of experience in the travel industry, it’s no surprise our team has already established a number of active agreements with resorts and property management agencies securing valuable discounted inventory.
  • Partnership with Priceline and Discounted Booking Rates
    • In 2020, we secured a partnership with Priceline for private membership rates that are not available on the public travel booking sites. Due to this partnership, HelloVacay is able to offer discounts of up to 60% off of the standard rates travelers usually see online.
  • Existing Platform with Paying Subscribers
    • After our recent soft launch of HelloVacay Wholesale Travel, we already have new members signing up daily (see our homepage here). Each of these members are subscribed to our affordable, flexible subscription-based service.
  • Decentralized Travel Rewards
    • HelloVacay will be offering all of its members decentralized travel rewards using blockchain technology. We are in talks with a number of large blockchain platforms in preparation to join their ecosystem. This token is under development currently.

Say Hello to VACAY Coin

In addition to providing up to 60% off public booking rates to our members, we are exploring exciting possibilities to provide additional value via our very own VACAY coin!

Potential scenarios being explored include VACAY coin rewards for bookings and referrals. If you tell your friends & family about HelloVacay, you could earn VACAY coins while they save money booking with us for life! The VACAY coins acquired could then be spent like fiat currency for future bookings on our site and potentially on partner sites as well, and sold or traded on any supporting exchanges.

Problem: The Current System


The online travel booking model has gone largely unchanged over the last twenty years. Today, the average traveler faces an industry where the prices on resorts and hotels are all basically the same. There’s no opportunity for discounted vacations outside of rigid timeshare ownerships and costly travel clubs. In short, travelers are stuck with an antiquated system that’s unaffordable.

  • In 2019, 52% of Americans planned to take a summer vacation. Of those that had no vacation plans, 60% cited lack of affordability as their reason.
  • Currently Travelers:
    • Pay higher prices than they need to at most stays
    • Have a less-than-ideal booking experience
    • Are offered false discounts and a phony narrative of competition
    • Are stuck with various travel currencies
    • Have limited payment options
  • Why These Problems Exist:
    1. Parity Pricing—All major booking platforms have nearly identical rates. This is due to an industry practice known as ‘parity pricing’ which is an agreement between online travel agencies and hotels to make sure there are not cheaper prices elsewhere.
    2. Artificially High Rates—Because of Parity Pricing, booking platforms often force hotels and resorts to artificially mark up their rates. Travelers are then offered a marked down pricing and are given the illusion of savings.
    3. Lack of Innovation—Currently the major booking platforms put advertising first and technology last. The industry is primarily focused on optimizing paid marketing and ad-spend rather than user experience and tech development.

The Solution: A New System

Getting Around Parity Pricing via Subscription

HelloVacay offers the discounted membership rates and benefits of a travel club without the large initial and ongoing expense. Through our subscription based travel platform, we’re able to maneuver around parity pricing and get our members actual discounts. On our platform users are also able to book travel amenities beyond their room, Car Rental, Airfare and more all from one place.

On top of this, decentralized travel rewards and blockchain functionalities will be built that will continually improve the booking experience made possible through our centralized subscription model. In essence, both centralized and decentralized methods will be used to create a better travel system.

  • HelloVacay Travelers:
    • Pay an average of 10-60% 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 has grown nearly 6x (more than 435%). In addition, subscription businesses have grown on average 5-8x faster than traditional businesses. HelloVacay currently has a hybrid model creating revenue through both membership subscription fees and back-end commissions on travel bookings.

Fun fact: 92% of millennials currently have an active subscription service and 70% of all adults would rather subscribe than pay the maintenance cost of owning something.
