What is HelloGbye?
HelloGbye is an online travel platform that is digital from end-to-end, and is designed for frequent travelers, business travelers and small businesses. The HelloGbye experience eliminates the restrictive search forms, and drop-down menus that characterize existing online travel systems. Instead HelloGbye offers a conversational platform that allows for multi-passenger, multi-city, as well as simple, itineraries. HelloGbye is not a travel agent.
What does HelloGbye do?
HelloGbye allows you to type or speak your travel plans using a rich conversational platform, eliminating the need to fill out restrictive forms, fields, and drop-down menus. HelloGbye’s users can search, plan and book for multi-passenger, multi-city itineraries with multiple content – hotel and flights. HelloGbye has simplified post-booking changes, allowing a user to change booked flight and hotel itineraries at anytime, anywhere. In addition, users receive curated, personalized hotel results tailored to the way they like to travel.
Why should I have it?
HelloGbye helps you save time by reducing the time needed to search, plan and book travel, and lets you spend more time time on your business and with friends and family. If you purchase a HelloGbye membership, you can also save money by choosing hotels that offer preferred hotel rates offered by our fulfillment partners, and earn 2% cash-back on hotel bookings. HelloGbye even handles post-booking changes through its conversational platform. That means you don’t have to call the airline to change your flights, you just log into HelloGbye and speak or type your itinerary changes.
What makes HelloGbye different?
HelloGbye is bringing several industry firsts to travel:
- Personal travel preferences. You tell HelloGbye how you like to travel, and it will prioritize and display in an integrated fashion on the Grid, those types of flights and hotels for you.
- Multi-passenger, multi-city itineraries. It can handle complex itineraries, with up to 9 travelers, including those coming from and returning to different cities, all within a single search.
- Changes. You can make changes to your already-booked itinerary that was arranged through HelloGbye – including postponing an entire trip – and have an updated itinerary generated within seconds.
- Curated and personalized hotels. HelloGbye has collaborated with American Express to deliver hotel recommendations that are personalized to you.
So, how does it work?
Speaking naturally, tell HelloGbye where you want to go, who is traveling, and for how long you want to stay and hit ‘Go’. HelloGbye will sort through all the available airlines and thousands of hotel properties to produce a unique itinerary that matches your search query and profile preferences – all of this in just seconds. You have the ability to search and plan for up to 8 travelers in addition to yourself, and can include as many flight segments on your trip as necessary. For example you could ask for a trip that takes you from New York to Chicago, then to Houston, then to L.A. – with flights and hotels intelligently scheduled and displayed to you and those you will travel with, automatically.
