While the tourism industry is taking strain due to lockdown regulations, vouchers are a lifeline to many businesses trying to stay afloat. 2020 looked to be the start of a new decade where tourism would grow exponentially and the industry as a whole would have one of its best years yet, however, nature and COVID-19 had other plans.

While we could create, strategise, and put our tried-and-tested tourism marketing methods and skills to effective use and plan for the future, nothing could have prepared us for what lay ahead. Luckily, we found opportunity and a space to test new ideas and push the creative and innovation boundaries.

We took something as simple as selling vouchers and turned it into a success story for our client, Mount High Luxury Country House, which is based in Mpumulanga, South Africa.

23 APRIL 2020: Blog Study: A Step-by-step Guide to Setting Up and Selling Discounted Travel Vouchers During COVID-19
