What we do

eola is a complete booking and management platform for experience providers. We enable businesses to automate their processes - from taking bookings to resource management - while significantly increasing their revenue. Our cutting edge technology make it easy to manage all day-to-day admin so our partners can save valuable time to focus on delivering outstanding experiences.

Launched in 2020, the eola marketplace aims to get more people outdoors and experiencing new adventures. The experience marketplace is powered by the eola booking system, not only making it easier for customers to find new experiences but also ensuring real-time availability and faster than ever booking flows.

Why eola stands as unique

Every feature we’ve built - from the smallest to the largest - has been carefully constructed on the same belief. That our platform should be better than a selection of tools. They should be unified as a beautifully simple system that is a delight to use.

Whether you’re on a phone in a field, a tablet on a beach, or a laptop at home, eola is designed to work perfectly on any device, any time, anywhere.

To make that all happen the co-founders started to build the team that is now the most important part of eola.

Our story

eola started from the founders’ own frustrations with the booking experience. When they started speaking to businesses in the industry, it quickly became clear that there was a significant need for more options to come online.

85% of the bookings in the industry are still taken offline via time intensive processes causing friction with consumers and high drop-off rates. Even a small business is likely to spend more than a collective 10 hours per day managing incoming bookings and easily automated administration, costing them many thousands every year.

If you want to order a pizza, or book a flight or hotel, you don’t call or email, you look online. We want to bring that same ease of flow to the experience industry in a way that removes the hassle of administration.

Our booking and management system is a fast, simple and efficient solution to make it easier than ever for businesses to come online with just a couple of clicks.
