There’s so much that you can benefit from through the new-look website with much more to come in the weeks and months ahead. Here are just some of the things you’ll love…
1. Being the first to know about the latest news and offers
Whether it’s the latest show to open in the West End, an exciting new group package for one of your favourite attractions, or a unique cruise opportunity, the website includes the very latest news, deals and ideas.
Part of being a great group travel organiser is being in the know; with heaps of exclusive content available, you’ll be the go-to person for your members.
As you know, we pride ourselves on serving up brilliant content in your monthly edition of Group Leisure & Travel magazine. But the new website allows us to complement the magazine with even more exclusive content you will only find online, including reviews, interviews, columns and essential advice for your role as a GTO.
“The initial impression is very good; it’s well laid out and easy to follow; the pages were quick to load and very easy to navigate. The website will be one of my first stops in the future if I need any information.”
Clive Roylance, Lordship Leisure Groups
2. How easy it is to use
The new website has been designed with our readers in mind.
We want it to be as easy as possible to find what you need and to navigate around the different sections. Everything is very clearly labelled and it’s a one-stop shop for all of your group travel needs. The website search has been enhanced and you can filter results to find the story that interests you the most. You will also find related content alongside stories and features, meaning you never have an excuse for not staying a little longer and finding that brilliant new idea you have been looking for.
“I love the new look website, it’s easy to read on my iPhone. For me, Group Leisure & Travel magazine has always been so important to my every day job.”
GTO, Tracey Sutton-Lambert, Waitrose Head Office
3. Find the content you’re interested in
One of the many features of the new website is the Interests Section – you can search for content related to your interests from gardens and flower shows to theatre, cruising, shopping and much more.
You can also see what other people are reading the most with our most popular stories shown throughout the site.
And by using the very straightforward search function you’ll be able to find what you’re after within a click of a mouse.
“I really like the new website; it certainly grabs you and it’s very easy to find your way around.”
Geoff Allen, Travallen Travel & Events
4. Choosing your next destination
There is a new dedicated Destinations section giving you inspiration about where to take your group next.
From the best of the UK to the highlights of Europe and ideas for long-haul trips to places around the world, the content is easy to find as well as being an informative and interesting read you will enjoy.
“I think you have done a first-class job on your new website. The overall look and the ease in which to navigate each section is really great and very straightforward. It’s a great tool for GTOs looking for ideas and advice.”
GTO Gordon Hadden, B & B Group Leisure
