Personalize Your Gift Vouchers
The season of giving means many people are on the hunt for the perfect gift. And with so many options to choose from, sometimes it can be hard to distinguish a good gift from a bad one. So what exactly makes a good gift? Many people will agree it’s the thought which counts the most. A personalized gift, which comes from the heart, is always a good one. This holiday season, you can make your gift and value vouchers feel special by personalizing them. Give your customers the opportunity to include a personal note with each voucher purchase.
With Regiondo’s new feature, Value Voucher Personalization, you can ensure your customers are giving fun and personalized gifts this holiday season. Learn more about how you can create value vouchers here.
Specialize Your Offers with Bundling
Every tour and activity provider knows that certain offers simply sell better and each provider has a popular or favorite offer. We understand that sometimes you may struggle to sell certain products and succeed with others, so we now have a solution for that 🙂
With our new feature, Bundle Offers, you can create truly unique experiences for your customers by bundling several of your tours and activities together and creating one special offer. Bundle Offers are a great way to offer a sale during your low season and generate more revenue during slower months for products which may not be selling well or need better exposure. They are also a great way to kick-start a new busy season and get people more excited about your new offers which your customers may not know and love yet. You can try bundling your products together and offer a well known product and include another less popular product at a fraction of the price. SimFlug München created Bundle Offers using this tactic and increased the sales of a lower performing offer by 30% within the first week the offer went live.
Now SFM’s customers are able to experience an all time-favorite flight simulation with the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon and discover the German Messerschmitt me 109 for a fraction of the price. With this new Regiondo feature, the booking system now allows customers to book the flight simulations for the same date and time. In SimFlug München’s case, the customer can also bring a friend and they can experience the flight simulation together yet separately from their aircraft and see each other in the flight simulation at the same time.

Simplify Your Checkout Process
The holiday season is a busy one for shoppers. Juggling work, family and friends is hard enough during the holidays, so why not make your customers’ shopping experience as easy as possible? Ensure that your online ticket store is set up to give your customers the best online shopping experience possible.
Last year, industry abandonment rates in the travel sector were at an alarming 80% in the third quarter for 2016. And 23% of customers abandoned carts due to a confusing or long checkout process or when needing to create an account to complete the checkout process. The Regiondo Booking Widget can help you avoid the possibility of abandoned carts and simplify the shopping process. With the booking widget, you can give your site visitors the option to check out in a lightbox and make shopping easier. This simplifies the shopping and checkout process because your visitors won’t be directed to another window to checkout or create an account.
