About Gowhee

GoWhee is the first and only global, crowdsourced travel app that helps parents plan and discover places around the world for kids and their families.

It is informed solely by its community of trusted parent subscribers and is an easy-to-use, one-stop-shop resource to find family-friendly places and experiences near home or far away.

GoWhee’s interactive map allows parents to search through 20+ location categories- from restaurants and hotels, to outdoor adventures and hiking trails- with filters they need, but rarely see. Each listing contains comprehensive reviews, ratings, images, and information critical to every family, such as access to caretaking amenities and accommodations for strollers and special needs.

GoWhee is a subscription-only app, ensuring every listing is honest and authentic and providing local, independent businesses the same level of exposure as global chains.

Benefit Of The Preferred Partners Program

App Visibility

Our Preferred Partners are the only businesses in the app that have the distinct advantage of being emphasized or listed in two places:

In their organic geographic location/ category on our interactive map + In our exclusive DEALS category- the first and most prominent filterable category available to our users

On the app, locations are showcased based on users’ geo-localization- not on a preferred algorithm based on traffic or reviews- so even the smallest, newest, and least-known businesses have a chance to be seen

This also means our Deals category is the only way for locations to stand out or receive greater exposure among their competitors
Our Deals filter is designed to be our most prominent search option and, when selected, eliminates all other locations from the map

Preferred partner status provides extra credibility within our community because our subscribers know that the GoWhee team and/or our ambassadors have experienced and reviewed that destination first-hand.

Promotional Value

GoWhee’s Preferred Partners benefit from our comprehensive digital marketing, user engagement, and public relations campaigns. Although partners are guaranteed a minimum level of dedicated exposure through these efforts, we always provide even greater visibility than what is outlined in our partnership agreements. Our Partners receive the following guaranteed support:

  • Website Exposure: Preferred Partners are featured throughout Gowhee.com available for both members and the general public to see
  • Social Media: We regularly promote our partners with at least two dedicated boosted posts across all social media platforms
  • Public Relations: New partners are included in our roundup press releases and any travel media networks Gowhee partners with.
  • Travel Influencer Collaborations: Preferred Partners have access to our network of global family ambassadors and travel influencers, all of whom are happy to entertain hosting opportunities, as well as rights to use their resulting images.
  • Free Online Community– Every Partner offer receives a dedicated mention in our digital newsletter and in our GoWhee blog

100% Profitability

Our no-fee/ zero commission booking process not only means that Preferred Partners receive 100% of profits on all bookings that are originated with GoWhee, but it also more than compensates for our partnership policy requirement of evergreen availability (no blackout dates may apply), since OTAs can take upwards of 35% commission on bookings.

Your exclusive Deal can be redeemed in a variety of ways, depending on what works best for your business. These options include:

  • A custom promo code
  • An affiliate link/custom link
  • Pull up the offer on the app at check-in

Our GoWhee Partnership Guarantee:

  • We do not take a percent at booking, or any point along the customer journey
  • We do not apply any upfront or hidden fees
  • You will not be required to pay for or participate in any ads to promote your offer
  • We link directly to your business, both in your organic listing and your Deal listing
  • Our subscribers will never be subject to ads, sponsored business listings, or any other paid endorsements that would interfere with the authentic and transparent user experience
