Be part of our local recovery activity.
We’re driving local tourism recovery, by partnering with Tourism Exchange GB (TXGB).
This means the opportunity to work with us to move customers from “look” to “book” on www.visitdoncaster.com. To drive sales for you, To be part of our marketing activity for Doncaster. And to benefit from a distribution channel that offers no connection fee, and 0% commission.
What is TXGB?
TXGB is a digital marketplace, brought to you by VisitEngland. It offers tourism businesses the opportunity to diversify their distribution, and gives distributors the ability to choose from a wide range of bookable tourism product, to add to their programmes.
Attractions can select as many distributors as they want by agreeing to the respective terms, conditions and fees. If businesses are looking to identify trends across all distribution channels, they can use the platform to find booking data and sales analytics, which in turn helps to identify sales trends. VisitDoncaster.com will host local venues for no additional charge.
How can my business benefit?
TXGB will enable all suppliers and attractions, including smaller outlets, to access new markets and customer groups that may have been previously out of their reach, grow bookings and increase revenue.
By linking to tourism suppliers’ booking systems, TXGB “feeds” live availability and pricing, along with product descriptions, images and relevant content into national and international distributor sites.
After agreeing to the respective terms, conditions and fees, suppliers can select whatever distributors they want and commission is paid to the distributors the company opts in to. A 2.5% + VAT service fee, calculated per booking to TXGB goes towards the sustainability of the platform.
TXGB can also help businesses form a booking system or booking pages on their website if they do not already have one.
What is meant by diversifying my distribution?
It means that you, as a tourism business, can choose from a selection of distribution channels, domestically and internationally, all in one place. These range from niche operators, to OTAs, and – most importantly here – destination websites like ours: Visitdoncaster.com! It also allow you to make your own website bookable, if it isn’t already.
