Benefits of the Discount System for Affiliates

  1. Increased bookings: By offering an incentive in the form of a discount, guests are more likely to book tours and activities through your Sales Portal. This increases your revenue and encourages guests to explore and engage with local attractions and experiences.
  2. Competitive edge: Providing exclusive discounts to your guests sets you apart from other accommodation providers. You can enhance your brand image and guest loyalty by differentiating your offerings with attractive incentives.
  3. Boosted guest satisfaction: Discounts can create a memorable and positive experience for your guests. By offering them savings on activities and tours, you contribute to their overall satisfaction and increase the likelihood that they'll recommend your property to friends and family.
  4. Targeted marketing: The ability to customize your discounts based on specific criteria allows you to create targeted marketing campaigns. For example, you could offer seasonal discounts to encourage bookings during off-peak periods or use a minimum order value to promote higher-priced activities.
  5. Data-driven decision-making: As you implement and track the effectiveness of your discount campaigns, you'll gain valuable insights into guest booking patterns and preferences. This data can help you make informed decisions about future promotions and further refine your marketing strategies.

  1. Integrate discounts into your pre-arrival communication: Inform guests about available discounts in pre-arrival emails, on your website, or through social media channels. This increases awareness and sets the stage for an exciting stay filled with engaging experiences.
  2. Train your staff to promote discounts: Ensure that your front desk and concierge staff are well-versed in the details of your discount program. They can be valuable ambassadors in encouraging guests to book through your TourDesk platform.
  3. Display promotional material on-site: Create eye-catching posters, flyers, or digital displays in high-traffic areas of your property to draw attention to your exclusive discounts and the exciting tours and activities available through TourDesk.
  4. Leverage guest feedback and testimonials: Share positive reviews from guests who have benefited from your discount program to build trust and showcase the value of booking through your TourDesk Sales Portal. Highlighting real-life experiences can inspire potential guests to take advantage of your discounts and explore the local attractions.
