Kanye West has mastered the music world, but now he's branching out into a new field: the travel industry. The Grammy-winning musician's new site, KanyeTravel.com, which launched Tuesday, will offer deals on airfare, rental cars and hotels, according to Advertising Age.

"Kanye is really excited," Miki Woodard, president of West Brands, tells PEOPLE. "What we discovered is nothing like this exists."

Travel giant Travelocity is one of the site's strategic partners.But West, 30, isn't leaving music out of the equation. Plans for the site include travel packages with tickets to his shows and Kanye merchandise.
