As destinations go, the charm of Down Under isn’t hard to sell – its traditional favourites know it, as do the locals who do a terrific job of supporting domestic tourism. Being rich in experiences, Australian tours, activities and accommodation should be showcased in equally vivid, content-rich, multi media presentations, the likes of which drive inbound business best.
In Oz, you can dive coral reefs, carve adventures from rain forests and deserts, get hooked on sports, partake of the grape, and swoon among natural sites and coastlines so spectacular, the country needed an entire continent all to itself.
Down Under Front and Centre We know Australia as the market leader of the Oceania region, which includes New Zealand, French Polynesia, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, and the Cook Islands.
Wetu has been working hard and pushing in extra resources to realise our role in facilitating growth across the global tourism industry – for both inbound and outbound players. The platform, tools and technology we provide service both ‘sides’ of the spectrum: tour operators, DMCs, travel agents, as well as accommodation companies and their marketers.
Content content content Our first stop has been to aggregate travel content for the region and invite suppliers of travel (hotels, guesthouses, B&B’s, lodges, resorts, activities, restaurants, RV and day tour companies) along with rail and cruise companies, to load their best content in our centralised content bank for easy management and access for re-sellers. If you’re based in Oceania and want more exposure for your travel products, then this is where you need to be.
Additionally, with Australians being one of the most well-travelled nations in the world, serving the outbound market, we proudly offer you visually-rich content in some of their favourite destinations, namely Africa, South America and Asia.
Wetu Tourplan Integration We call it our quick and easy bolt-on, a way for operators to use the TOS they know and are comfortable using in tandem with a publishing tool and platform that enables them to produce the best, most beautiful, and interactive itineraries possible. For a bit more info on the integration, click here – to help you understand better how this will work for you, we’ve got a brand new team member representing Wetu in your own stomping ground.
