ArrivalGuides Growth Offers a Wealth of Opportunities for DMOs

Categories: Our News
The world's largest distributor of destination content, ArrivalGuides, presents our DMO customers with unrivalled opportunities to boost their exposure to potential visitors around the world.
Back in February we announced our partnership with ArrivalGuides, and since then the brand has expanded its distribution network to over 340 major, global travel brands, which it supplies with content from over 550 tourism bureaus and destination experts.
These brands, including international travel organisations such as AAA, Aer Lingus, SAS, Flybe and rentalcars.com, will now use the official content - including pictures and videos - from ArrivalGuides destination partners in a variety of ways, influencing and inspiring millions of their own customers to explore and book their holidays to these destinations.
This is how it works. Once your information is uploaded to the ArrivalGuides system, it automatically updates the vast distribution partner network which includes OTAs, search engines, cruise companies, airlines, tour companies and travel operators. These distribution partners then implement this content into their digital platforms in all formats, including websites, downloadable PDFs, mobile apps, in-flight entertainment systems, booking confirmations, e-newsletters and Smart TV apps, reaching vast numbers of new customers.
For example, AAA, North America’s largest leisure travel organisation, has partnered with ArrivalGuides to build upon its library of destination information for their 55 million members. Similarly, rentalcars.com, the world’s largest online car rental service and part of the Priceline group, also uses ArrivalGuides content, knowing the added benefit it will have for its customers, as has Australian travel booking company Webjet.
Managing Director of New Mind | tellUs, Richard Veal comments, "We're really excited about the recent increase in distribution partners joining the network and the potential that this growth offers to our DMOs. I really believe that no other platform exists which would allow our destinations' content to be published across multiple platforms on this scale."
Look out for our article in next month's issue when we'll be looking at how some of the world's key destinations are benefitting from the exposure generated by ArrivalGuides.
