Tour Operator and Travel Web Design that drives more direct bookings

We’ve seen the struggles tour operator businesses in Australia are going through with the arrival of online booking. No longer can you go just build relationships with Travel Agents and expect to sell tours. The most profitable tour businesses are ones that get direct bookings from their website, and save on commissions to Travel Agents and OTA’s.

People are doing more travel research and making more bookings online than ever before – which is only going to continue to grow. As the market grows, so does the competition. It’s more important to focus on your web presence than ever before.

Our expert team of marketers, designers and developers can work with businesses in the tour operator industry – from overseas group travel tours, to day tours in Australia.

We know what problems you face, what makes travellers and sightseers excited, and we know how to drive more direct tour bookings from your website.

How to sell more tours through your website:

  • Communicate your company’s unique selling points – what makes you different from the rest (Pro tip: Telling people you have the best customer service won’t cut it).
  • Allow users to book and pay online – without leaving your website.
  • Use content, imagery & videos to tell stories & awaken the traveller spirit within.
  • Provide an engaging, flowing user experience for mobile AND desktop users from start to finish.
  • Communicate the benefits of booking direct vs OTA’s, such as best price guarantees.
  • Get your website in front of your ideal customer using SEO or other marketing methods.

Praise from our clients

Don't just take our word for it!

I started to write a more detailed thank you email to you for all your efforts, but I am terrible with words and it’s still sitting in my draft folder. You have been fantastic to work with and I really appreciate all the effort and hard work you and your team put into our website. After the launch we beat our previous monthly online sales record by a long way.

Working with Static Shift has been a great experience, through the research & development phase they really took on our business as a whole and looked to understand not only our customers, our company and our business goals but also a thorough insight into the niche industry we work in. Karl’s genuine interest in the detail translated through to the design and development and now we are loving the results. After launching our new website with Static Shift last year our organic search traffic is up 58% and enquiries 77%. This has resulted in increased net profit of over 30% and really improved our user experience as well as company growth overall. Karl knows his stuff online, and from a business perspective not only do we have more sales enquiries but the quality of our enquiries has improved as well. We continue to work with Static Shift on our SEO program and are really grateful for the partnership. They are responsive and professional and the fact that they offer web design and development with a whole business approach, is such a bonus.

Just want to thank you and your team sooo much again for all your hard work and support in building our online ticketing system. It’s so different for me not feeling stressed about ticketing issues this year and it’s so much easier for the customers to use, and us to manage, so you really have done an amazing job! Also for keeping up the communication, I really appreciate it!

Redeveloping our responsive website has been a smooth, reliable and successful venture working with Karl at Static Shift. The communication from Karl and Karen was regular, detailed and clear. The resulting website exceeded all expectations. The website is running smoothly and much more efficiently than our previous design and is a lot easier on our server resources (which was a big problem with our level of traffic). Karl has a can do attitude, which means that all custom changes that we wanted were implemented to achieve the result we were looking for. We would definitely recommend using Static Shift.
