Online ticket selling for the tourism and leisure industry is becoming increasingly paramount when it comes to growing a business and remaining at the front and centre of modern purchasing habits. As with a lot of other industries, your customers are wanting more online availability and an easier way to book and pay for your experiences.
So, for businesses who are selling tours and activities we have listed some of the ways in which your peers in the industry are already benefiting from selling their tickets online.
Online ticket selling stops no shows and avoids drop-off
The biggest benefit of online booking is that it ensures your customers pay upfront, so if they don’t show up due to poor weather, or decide to pull out - you’ve already been paid and you’re protected by your cancellation terms.
From historic houses, to gardens, attractions and activity providers, this is the single greatest benefit for all. What’s more, the number of people who book with you from an initial enquiry is much lower than a customer who can book instantly. Booking instantly locks in commitment and avoids the chance for loss of interest or booking something else!
