New booking system to boost tourism
23 Feb 2021
A new booking platform to help people secure places at local tourist attractions, tours and accommodation is now available through the Visit Maidstone website, the tourism department within Maidstone Borough Council.
Visit Maidstone has teamed up with Tourism Exchange Great Britain (TXGB), which is backed by Visit England, giving local tourism businesses the ability to become directly bookable on www.visitmaidstone.com.
Cllr Paul Harper, Chair of the Economic, Regeneration and Leisure Committee at Maidstone Borough Council said: “This new platform will make it so much easier to book a hotel room or a day out at one of the amazing attractions or venues in Maidstone as people can do this directly through the Visit Maidstone website.
“The tourism industry has been one of the hardest hit and anything that will help to support recovery and drive sales for local businesses is a positive move forward. This new system is an opportunity for businesses of all sizes across the sector to get their products in front of people planning their trips to the region.”
James Berzins, TXGB Director states “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Visit Maidstone to launch their connection to TXGB and drive sales for local tourism businesses. The aim of the TXGB platform is to grow both the volume and value of tourism in England, and with the Maidstone region offering huge potential, this represents a fantastic opportunity to make it easier for people to book and drive sales for our local businesses.
