How to maximise sales of every tour

Depending on how your tours are structured, you either have tours with high fixed costs or high variable costs. 

High fixed costs mean that regardless of the number of people going on your tour, the costs you incur to run the tour doesn't change. For tours like these, usually bus tours, boat tours or even transfers, it is crucial for operators to get as many people booked up to maximise your revenue.

We gave the POS desk a new look!

We've created a suite of booking tools to speed up the sales process at every point of sale. This includes website sales through our integrated booking engine, via a reseller's website (through an API connection with an OTA or a travel partner), or in-person with your sales team or in-destination reseller.

The Point-of-Sales Desk is a booking and marketing tool created for your sales team, travel partners and resellers. 

Get real-time updates on your latest availabilities, upsell customers with add-ons and take partial or full payments in-person. During a tour, your guides can also retrieve details for upcoming bookings and get all the information they need about your guests. 

  

A simpler layout and design

The POS desk has been updated with a smoother and more intuitive design. It can be used on a tablet or laptop to process a booking, or as an "activity booklet" to show off your tours.

Increase bookings and speed up your sales processes with a tool that assists your sales team and resellers from start to finish.
