Lonely Planet Acquires ArrivalGuides
ArrivalGuides works as a hub for destination content, functioning as an all-in-one travel ecosystem that meets all the content, marketing and booking needs of B2B clients. Clients such as AAA Travel, VISA, Hilton, Eurowings, Rentalcars.com and many more use ArrivalGuides digital products to integrate travel content to existing platforms.
“We are pleased to offer all the advantages of ArrivalGuides to our suite of opportunities for our partners,” said Lonely Planet’s new CEO Luis Cabrera.
The Content Hub. At the core is the database of destination content. It is accessed through our own content management system, the AGDA CMS, by content providers such as convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs), destination marketing organizations (DMOs) and destination management companies (DMCs). These can be cities, regions, countries or local businesses. They can upload all the content they wish to promote their destination. All of this content is then funneled to our B2C site ArrivalGuides.com as destination guides, available for free to travelers all over the world. Our site has over 3 million visitors yearly.
Many companies benefit from placing destination content on their own platforms. This is made possible through our API solution and widgets, making all of the content available to online travel agents, airlines, credit companies, car rental businesses, cruise companies and many many more.
All uploaded video content is available through our one-of-a-kind channel, ArrivalTV, allowing you to publish your inspirational destination videos and reach millions of travelers, not only on YouTube and your official website, but throughout the ArrivalGuides network, Dailymotion, SmartTV apps and Amazon Fire TV. Through on-demand TV, travelers are able to view inspiring destination videos on all devices ─ in their living room, from their couch and on their TV.
In addition to these channels, all the content in the database is also available via a booking platform solution, used by travel agent consortia such as WIN, Advantage, Consolid and GlobalStar, making it possible for travel agents across the world to include the destination content in every booking they make with a client.
The CMS gives the DMO/CVB/DMC complete control to manage and organize their destination content. All of this content creates hundreds of destination guides on ArrivalGuides.com. The content is distributed through the database to SmartTV apps and YouTube via ArrivalTV. Our Travel Operator clients can get access to our content in the database and use it on their platforms.
THE CONTENT LIBRARY
Our API gives travel operators and partners full access to all destination content data; text, images and videos, allowing the freedom to create a bespoke look and feel to their websites and/or apps. Regular content revisions and updates ensure that the content is relevant and up-to-date for our clients.
THE BOOKING PLATFORM
All our destination content is also available through a unique end-to-end platform solution launched in October 2018, tailored for travel operators. In all travel bookings they make with each of their clients, the destination content from ArrivalGuides' database is available to enlighten their planned trip.
