The Company 

Rezdy is the world’s leading independent B2B cloud-based booking and distribution platform in the experiences sector. Our mission is to power the growth of the Experiences Industry through tools and connections that make life easier. 

 If you’ve ever booked a tour or activity, chances are you’ve interacted with Rezdy’s platform. On the one hand, we help ‘experience’ providers, such as whale watching tours, cooking schools and amusement parks, manage their bookings online and connect with a wide distribution and resale network. On the other hand, we help those looking for experiences and products to resell, such as online travel agencies (OTAs), tourist information centres, hotel concierges and local travel agents, to expand their own customer offering.
