GrabOne Launches New Kiwi Activity and Attractions Booking

GrabOne Launches New Kiwi Activity and Attractions Booking Site

Booking activities and attractions around New Zealand has just become easier with GrabOne’s new website, GoBook.

GoBook acts as a ‘virtual travel information centre’ enabling users to browse, compare and book experiences with reputable Kiwi businesses in one handy location.

The site offers ultimate control to merchants who can update their GoBook listings themselves by editing offers, price and time availability as they wish.

GrabOne is expecting the site to be a hit with anyone holidaying and travelling around New Zealand or looking for more adventures in their own city. While many GoBook listings are discounted, the site focuses more on convenient travel planning.

“Although we are expecting to see some amazing pricing on the website, GoBook isn’t all about the big discount,” says GrabOne Marketing Manager James Kemp. “Instead customers have the best bits of New Zealand at their fingertips and merchants can easily sell their services when they have space. GoBook is a one stop activity shop for both international and Kiwi travellers who want a snapshot of what to see and do in the region they’re about to visit.”

Visitors to GoBook can log in using their GrabOne login details or by simply creating a new account, and Kemp is expecting the one million strong GrabOne database to be fundamental to GoBook’s success.

“Over the past three years we’ve built GrabOne into a brand that Kiwis really trust, and GoBook simply allows our customers and merchants to connect more often,” he says.

GoBook is initially launching with activities in Northland, Auckland, Rotorua/Taupo, Christchurch/West Coast and Queenstown/Southern Lakes, with plans to be in a further eight locations before Christmas.

GoBook launched this week and includes over 300 activities across all five launch regions including geo-thermal spas in Rotorua, jet boating and kayaking in Auckland and scenic flights in Queenstown.
