Bacarai was founded in 2018 by a travel management company focused on providing group airfare booking services. After spending countless hours on phone calls and in email exchanges with airlines, the founders decided to embark on a mission to bring group airfare online.
Since this time, the team at Bacarai has worked tirelessly to understand the technical systems that support the airline industry and to create solutions to remove the friction and inefficiencies of booking group airfare for parties of ten or more.
Furthermore, Bacarai offers additional booking services for meeting planners to simplify multi-origin to single destination travel for conferences, annual meetings, incentive trips and more.
Bacarai’s team members are all experts in travel and airfare with experience working for tour operators, travel agencies, travel management companies as well as airlines. Every client is assigned to an individual account manager to ensure quality support and trip guidance.
Bacarai acts similar to an online travel agency(OTA) allowing groups to search and book group airfare. Student organizers, tour operators, travel agencies and other group coordinators can build an account in Bacarai giving them access to search flights and build group trip itineraries.
This differs from shopping on a popular OTA which only sells published airfare, and is limited to selling up to seven tickets in a single transaction. Under the hood, Bacarai maintains both a pricing and availability engine that allows us to quote and sell group airfare, and a trip management system that allows simplified processing of payments, passenger information submission, along with trip modifications and more.
