GetYourGuide Supports Activity Upload in French, Italian, and Spanish

GetYourGuide, the world’s largest online portal for tours and activities at destinations around the globe, has announced today that it will support upload of new products in three new languages.

Berlin August 23, 2013 - Following the February 2013 launch of its customer site in French, Italian, and Spanish, GetYourGuide has announced that the system now supports product upload in French, Italian, and Spanish. This new capability is a strategic move for the company and its plans for future market expansion.

Over the last six months, GetYourGuide has collected thousands of activities geared toward international travelers who are native speakers of these three target languages. The next phase in GetYourGuide’s mission to deepen involvement in the French, Italian, and Spanish markets is to capture the domestic travel sector. This new focus and upload functionality will amplify professional activity suppliers’ potential to reach new audiences and localize their offerings.

“Now that we’re starting to see some traction in the international segments of these new markets, it’s time for us to flip the switch and move more aggressively into areas that are important for French, Italian, and Spanish travelers,” commented Martin Miodownik, GetYourGuide’s Director of Sales. “By allowing domestic upload, we hope to serve both our customers and our suppliers even better.”

Since its launch in 2010, GetYourGuide has collected nearly 23,000 things to do in places all over the world. But until now those activities had been added to the assortment exclusively in German or English, with translation work performed by GetYourGuide. Now, with domestic upload enabled, the company expects to see its product assortment and variety drastically increase.

“We’re very excited to scout out unique things to do around the world for our newest customer base,” said GetYourGuide CEO, Johannes Reck. “This is a huge opportunity to learn and grow for the entire business.”
