Despite the pandemic, over 75% of European festival-goers we surveyed said they plan to attend an international festival or event this year. This surprised even us, but is testament to the huge demand we’re currently seeing for events that are on sale, particularly in the UK. We expect this demand to increase even more as other countries announce similar roadmaps.

With that in mind, we believe there is no better time than now to begin curating the perfect international offering for your upcoming event. Here are just a few reasons why many of our partners are currently using our egTravel product to attract a new, global fanbase.

You're in the hands of experts

Our experienced travel team have years worth of experience in curating travel packages for a whole range of events. Our team will work alongside you to understand your event and audience, and use this information to go away and pair tickets with accommodation, travel, transport, merchandise, VIP options, and other add-ons to create exciting experiences for your fans which are then sold through the Event Genius platform.

We take care of it all

We understand that running events involves spinning a lot of plates, that’s why once our team has the information they need, we handle everything from the negotiations with travel partners to online setup and reporting.  

Whatever the event, we can help

We work with a wide variety of travel partners to enable us to offer accommodation packages that suit events of all types all over the world, fans of all types, and most importantly budgets of all types. These include hotels, hostels, guesthouses, apartments, camping, and glamping sites.  

It’s not all about travel and accommodation

The fan experience is at the heart of what we do, meaning we also look for ways to enhance our packages with extras such as goody bags, exclusive artist merchandise or content, or special food and drinks packages.


Reach new audiences around the world

Promoters can take advantage of our global audience via our varied marketing channels, including content and editorial, email and social media in order to reach new audiences across the world. 

All our travel partners receive a dedicated marketing plan and with 9 translated languages, over 40 accepted currencies and 16 local payment methods, we’re ready to take your event around the globe.

Increase revenues

Increase your revenues by as much as 10-15% by tapping into the ecosystem of businesses beyond the site of your event.

And with our flexible payment options, such as Payment Plan or Pay With Friends, take advantage of a 74% increase in average order value.

It doesn’t matter if you already have a ticketing deal

Have you already contracted your ticketing to a different provider? Not to worry. egTravel can operate alongside any pre-existing ticketing deal or as part of the end-to-end Event Genius solution.

Join other great events already using egTravel

Some of the world’s biggest events are already using egTravel to boost international travellers by up to 34%, including the likes of Rolling Loud, Afro Nation, Rock in Rio Lisboa, Mad Cool and Tomorrowland.
