Independence is an often-overlooked factor when growing an experience-provider business.

If the business isn’t built to attract its own buyers, and instead succumbs to the quick sales offered by groupon, and OTA’s; the profits and growth will suffer. 


Fareharbor does not provide marketing. Instead, it encourages partners to integrate with OTA’s such as viator, which take an additional 20% off each booking.

Rockon partners enjoy the full benefit of their earnings, so they can remain competitive AND profitable, independently.
