What is the idea behind TripOutside?
TripOutside is designed to save adventure enthusiasts time and effort while booking outdoor rental gear. The typical process for booking outdoor gear requires extensive online searches, calling shops during business hours, providing credit card info over the phone, and tedious in-store waiver processes. TripOutside provides customers with a comprehensive online research and booking tool for all of their outdoor adventures. With 90% of travel bookings involving online searches, TripOutside.com lets customers book adventures whenever and from wherever they want, all on one website.
Who is TripOutside for?
For Customers: TripOutside is for the outdoor enthusiast. It’s for the weekend warrior taking an adventure trip, and for the enthusiast looking to demo their latest bike, kayak, SUP or skis before they make a big purchase. Customers can find their outdoor adventures in one place, compare pricing, and book the gear they need online quickly and easily.
For Outfitters: Many outfitters need help when it comes to optimizing and running their business, especially online bookings. TripOutside works with outfitters of all sizes, and whether they have an existing online booking solution or not, the TripOutside marketplace provides an additional marketing channel for more gear rental bookings. Outfitters make a large financial investment in their rental gear inventory and TripOutside helps them maximize their rentals. TripOutside helps outfitters rent unused equipment while saving them time and effort in the shop. This outfitter video helps explain how TripOutside.com works.
“An extra $1800 in rentals in the first month! I stumbled upon this amazing site and they set us up for online rentals in just one day. They helped me with everything I asked for and more.”
