What Travel Niches is Ventura TRAVEL open to?
We see our role in supporting you, with your idea, so that your travel niche becomes a success, that we achieve together as a team. So it's ideal for us, that the knowledge and the technology, that we have is compatible with your idea.
Our software (both front- and backend) is optimized for multi day & multi destination trips. So if you plan to offer services that go to various places, our software will be compatible, and we quickly can launch the new brand. If your proposed travel niche is to offer yoga classes in a finca in southern Spain, then our software and knowledge is not much of help.
We are also building an infrastructure for platforms. So far galapatours.com is our only niche platform. We plan to launch more of these specialized platforms in the future. So if your idea is a platform, please apply!
What kind of addressable travel niches exist?
Most of our existing brands are destination niches. As of today (May 2019) we cover the following destinations: South America (viventura), Central America (puraventura), Japan (japaventura), Iran (persiaventura) and China (chinaventura). There are many other destinations, where we think that opening a new brand may be a good idea. Here are some examples (you can also apply for other destinations though!):
- Southern Africa
- Indian Subcontinent
- South East Asia
- North America
- Eastern Africa
- Eastern Europe
- New Zealand
- Arab World
Travel Type Niches
You have a passion for a certain way of traveling? Then this might be the niche you should propose. Some possible ideas:
- bicycle trips
- electric bike trips
- trekking trips
- horse riding trips
- train ride trips
- self drive trips
- motorcycle trips
- volunteer tourism
- luxury travel
- wellness travel
- wildlife travel
Travel Audience Niches
You want to offer trips specifically tailored for a certain audience & interest groups? Examples include:
- trips for singles
- trips for families
- trips for young travelers
- trips for universities
- trips for private groups
- trips for the LGBT community
- trips for religious travelers
- trips for solo travelers
- trips for fitness lovers
- trips for people with a handicap
- trips for foodies
- trips for photographers
- organisation of company retreats
- wedding / honeymoon trips
- marathon trips
Most of our present brands are destination niches, but we started our first platform niche in 2017: galapatours.com, the second niche will be launching by the end of 2019. Other possible niches include:
- Antarctica boats
- Inca trail trips
- Yoga retreats
- Sailing cruises
- Digital Detox trips
You can also be creative and propose new travel niches. For example, it would be possible to launch a brand that addresses selling trips through travel agencies. Another idea we would like to share with you: 11trips.com, a website limited to eleven, well researched trips with limited availability. So we are open to other suggestions, as long as we believe we can help you succeed with your idea.
Even before we had our first clients traveling with us, we already helped local projects, as we believe that tourism needs to be a business, where all stakeholders win. So far we have one foundation which is focused on CBT Tourism. We are also open for other foundation ideas, that we can sponsor and support.
