If you regularly volunteer your time and resources for trips away with friends or colleagues then welcome to GroupLeader.com, a brand new website that is dedicated to taking the hassle out of organising group travel. The platform is a fast, simple solution for groups, ensuring a fantastic choice of hotels and excellent value.

GroupLeader.com’s vision is to make organising group travel really easy! The team has developed a revolutionary new website which delivers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for group travel organisers to book the best hotels, ground transport providers, tour guides and much more. The new platform caters for all group types especially sports teams, golfing groups, social clubs, school and college trips, corporate trips and large family holidays. People are already raving about how useful the site is, especially those who have previously endured the role of group organiser!

Booking and planning group travel is notoriously time and resource intensive because of the way the travel market works. The travel industry worldwide defines a ‘group’ generally as 10 or more people travelling together. It treats these groups differently to individuals or smaller parties (of less than 10). Unfortunately, groups need to apply for a price on request and therefore cannot take advantage of the convenience of hotel website booking engine rates, or Online Travel Agents like Expedia or booking.com. Instead, a bespoke price is created by a hotel for the group’s requirements at that point-in-time based on availability, group type, time of year etc. So, planning a group trip is traditionally very hands-on and time-consuming and consequently the ‘groups’ market has been underserved online…until now. GroupLeader.com provides a one-stop-shop for groups by offering the following great features and benefits:

Plan and book group trips easily - GroupLeader.com provides a mobile responsive platform to find and book hotels, ground transport, tour guides and much more. No more trawling the Web for days trying to contact the right suppliers. GroupLeader.com puts the group organiser directly in touch with the best hotels and travel providers for groups.

Get great group rates - GroupLeader.com’s partners will offer the best available rates for each group every time. As the group organiser deals directly with the supplier on the platform, they can avail of the most competitive quote specific to their exact requirements.

Buy as a group and pay separately - The platform facilitates the simple division of payments, meaning no messy spreadsheets are required to work out who owes what and no more chasing money owed by group members. Group members are sent notifications when payment are due and can pay their portion of the trip individually by card or PayPal.

Collaborate with group members - The group dashboard is a mini social network for the group allowing members to easily communicate with the group and specific group members. All members can compare hotel and partner proposals, vote on the proposals, manage bookings, payments and online documents such as rooming lists all in the one place - removing the difficulty of organising and managing group members, and making group decisions more collaborative and transparent.

The process is simple:
1. A group organiser planning a team trip sets up a profile on GroupLeader.com and sends a request to a selection of shortlisted hotels meeting their requirements.
2. The hotels then quickly send back proposals.
3. The group organiser can also invite group-members to compare the proposals.
4. The group organiser or group choose a hotel and each member pays their share of the cost into GroupLeader.com which then forwards the combined payments to the hotel.

With thousands of partners around Ireland and the UK, group organisers will have a huge variety to choose from. Brands such as Radisson, Marriott, Hilton, Ibis, Ramada, The Doyle Collection, Maldron, Holiday Inn, Bewley's and Jurys Inn are already on board together with celebrated hotels like The Hoxton Hotel, Corinthia Hotel London, Hayfield Manor, The Merchant Hotel, Parknasilla Resort & Spa, The Europe Hotel & Resort, Fota Island Resort, Danubius Regents Park, Carton House, Brooklodge Hotel and Castleknock Hotel & Country Club.

The site will initially be available for groups travelling to the UK and Ireland, rolling out to mainland European destinations soon and will also include new partner types such as visitor attractions and ski resorts. GroupLeader.com has already received lots of enquiries ranging from golfing groups, class reunions, corporate events, educational groups and sports events with confirmed bookings such as:
- A golfing trip of 26 to Sligo
- A US Business School group of 60 travelling to Dublin for the Web Summit
- An overseas mini-rugby tour of 100+ (kids and parents)
- A 14-person University reunion in Oxford, England.
