New travel experience finder Vayable is promising to rid the world of boring vacations by providing its users access to locally-sourced exotic experiences worldwide.
The site, which launched last Friday, works with local experts and travel providers across the globe looking for truly interesting experiences.
These range from fishing with a local king in Fiji to helping rebuild a community in Uganda. There are currently 70 listings for interesting experiences but the company says it is always looking to expand.
According to their site they welcome “anyone who has expertise and access to a unique experience”.
It says: “This includes people who are local to the destination and know some aspect of it inside out, people who are familiar and passionate about a destination and want to share it with others, and those who have special skills, interests or contacts in a place and want to share them with visitors or fellow locals.”
This means companies and individuals who meet Vayable’s definition of exotic can offer their experiences through the company. In return Vayable takes 15% commission from contributors providing the experiences and 3% from travellers.
The lure of an exotic adventure has already drawn 200 users to the service and co-founders Jamie Wong and Samrat Jeyaprakash hope to grow that by filling a “blind spot” in the online travel industry.
