What Our Travel Trade Ready Platform Offers...
A Bespoke DMO specified analysis tool to assess the travel trade readiness of any supplier against the key criteria for all major buyer types.
Find out if you are Travel Trade Ready?
Suppliers can take up to 5
separate analyses covering
multiple domestic and
international buyer types.
No matter what your business type is!
Suppliers select their business type from our list of attraction, accommodation provider, vineyard/brewery torus, pub/restaurant, golf course or tour guide - or you can specify other categories of your choosing.
They then choose the type of buyer they would like to assess their business alignment with from our list of tour operator/DMC, OTA, Education operator, Group Travel Organiser or sustainable/Eco tour operator – or you can specify other types of buyer.
The supplier is then asked to respond to ten questions weighted in importance to the specified buyer type. A score is instantly generated. If they pass the test (70%) they move on to build their trade friendly marketing materials and can search for and be searched by buyers. They can also opt to take different tests against other buyer types.
If they are not successful, there is access to a wide range of help directly on the platform. You can see examples of these below.
Narrated by tour operators and other trade professionals, including suppliers that have undertaken their own travel trade journey, there is advice on why key criteria are so important that will add context and insights. Suppliers can then re-test as their understanding grows.
