The Reviews Are In...

origin vs. Fareharbor

Originally built as a ticketing system for boat charters or attractions, the Fareharbor system hasn’t changed to fit the modern needs of tour businesses. Their iFrame pop-ups kill your SEO making it harder for customers to find you. Plus, your customers will be confused by all your various pricing tiers. You don’t sell tickets, you sell tours and unique experiences. Don’t settle for an outdated platform.

origin vs. peek

Want to manage your tours and rentals with your inventory shared between them? You can’t do that with Peek’s old system. You’ll be sacrificing your branding, website usability and your time since it can’t manage all your logistics in an efficient way.

origin vs. rezdy

You’re probably used to use managing multiple systems to manage trips, staffing, guide assignments, and waivers, and Rezdy is no different. Stop confusing your customers and making more work for yourself by using a basic ticketing system.

origin vs. xola

Xola users describe the platform as “glitchy” and slow. They’ll control your refunds and hold your money, leaving you in a vulnerable position. Xola also charges you a $199 fee if you want their help getting set up and installed properly.

origin vs. The flybook

Founded in 2006 and now owned by a payment processing company, The Flybook hasn’t seen much change as everything else has evolved and improved. The outdated user interface confuses clients and the iFrame pop-ups sabotage your website’s SEO.

origin vs. Checkfront

Want to spend hours setting up your calendar and finalizing trip pages? That’s what you get with Checkfront. While the small monthly subscription sounds nice, you get what you pay for.

origin vs. Acuity

Businesses used Acuity, but it wasn’t built for tour and activity providers. Acuity didn’t offer ways to simplify the process, so operators have to manage several calendars for different activities through Acuity as well as 3rd party tools like Google Calendar, spreadsheets, and more.
