What is NextRetreat?
NextRetreat is a helpful tool for organizing team trips. It’s like having a personal assistant for planning a fun and successful trip for your team! Here are some of the things that NextRetreat can do:
It’s really easy to use, and the best part is that you can get expert help from our Retreat Specialists if you need it. They’re like travel gurus who can help you plan an amazing trip for your team. NextRetreat has everything you need to plan a smooth and successful team trip all in one place!
How does the 1 month trial work?
It’s straightforward. You can sign up for the NextRetreat app and select a 1-month trial during your sign-up. You don’t need to enter your credit card information. When your trial ends, you won’t lose any data on your account, but your access will be limited to view only. We will inform you via email well before that with an option to upgrade to premium. You can, however, upgrade at any time.
Who is the NextRetreat App for?
The NextRetreat App is a tool made for people who plan trips for teams. It helps them save time and effort by putting everything they need in one place. Before, they had to spend a lot of time searching on Google and different travel websites to plan the trip.
With NextRetreat, they can easily plan the trip, find a good place to stay, and create a schedule for the team to follow. The app also helps with managing the team members, travel data, and survey, making it easier to plan the perfect trip for the team.
What’s the difference between App package and Concierge package?
App: This is ideal for self-organisation, providing everything you need to research, plan and organise team trips efficiently. The NextRetreat app now offers a free 1-month trial for every new user who registers. After the expiration, you can subscribe to get unlimited app access and organise an unlimited number of trips. Quarterly and annual subscripton offer discounts against a monthly subscription plan.
Concierge: This is our personalised service, where we collect the information we need to prepare your tailored proposal. You can learn more about Concierge here.
No matter which package you choose, our Retreat specialists will be on hand to assist you on your journey.
How much does it cost to organise a team trip?
There’s no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The cost will vary depending on a number of factors such as:
As a rough guideline companies spend, on average, 1,000€ to 2,000€ per team member.
Is NextRetreat App suitable for large teams?
Absolutely! We designed NextRetreat for teams from 10 members up to 500 members. Our solution puts you in control, allowing you to research properties based on your specific requirements, such as the total number of rooms needed.
If you have a larger organisation with more than 500 members, you can use it for any number of your smaller teams, like organising all-hands team trips for various departments.
Can I use NextRetreat App to research or book flights?
Researching? Yep, no problem! Booking? Unfortunately not.
The NextRetreat app allows you to research destinations and flight connections to provide an estimate of costs and travel time. Flights can be previewed in-app, but you’ll have to book them on your preferred site, or with one of our partners.
Do you offer any solution for TMCs or travel agencies?

What's the difference between Curated venues and Featured venues?
NextRetreat inventory consists of tens of thousands of properties. Before we include a venue, we vet it in terms of rating, distance from the airport, suitable amenities and other important variables to our customers.
To take it to the next level, we have introduced Curated venues. To create this list, our algorithm browses, filters and labels properties that meet only the strictest criteria. We designed it to help you refine your search.
However, no algorithm can evaluate the suitability for teams as good as humans. Therefore, we have also handpicked the properties suitable for teams - either we’ve had a team booking there, or our retreat specialist chose this venue since it met the criteria for hosting a team.
You can find a brief preview of featured venues on Featured.NextRetreat.com, with many more, including filters and curated venues, in the NextRetreat App.
Can I use the NextRetreat App to research or book accommodation?
Most certainly, you can! In the NextRetreat app, you will find venues that you can find on Booking, Priceline, Agoda & other sites, but you will find only those suitable for teams. That’s not all. We also have our network and work directly with hotels and private property owners. Combining all these streams into a single inventory turns the NextRetreat app into the best tool to research and book venues most suitable for team trips.
How does your pricing work?
Excellent question. Our mission is to be fully transparent and forthcoming about pricing. Therefore, we never artificially raise prices for the services like accommodation or activities. On the contrary, we usually have more favourable prices than you can get when inquiring. It’s due to several variables, especially our excellent network of providers and group discounts we negotiate on your behalf.
There are also no hidden fees or contracts. With our Concierge package, you pay a service fee of 49€ per team member travelling, and the NextRetreat Application starts at 99€ per month with a 1-month free trial for every new account.
