Marketing Manchester’s new distribution channel will help suppliers in the area raise their profile to overseas visitors, while the VisitBritain Shop gives attractions and experiences the benefit from the Shop’s 12 markets.

Sue Jerham from National Forest E-Bike Holidays has already taken her first booking via TXGB.

 “Having utilised the TXGB system to take payment for a booking, I'm really excited by its potential and can see how it will help reach overseas customers, as well as providing an efficient payment tool for UK guests,” Sue said. “The support from TXGB has been superb. I'm not very technical and was daunted by the system at first. However, Lewis, my account manager worked really hard to understand my business model. He was always there at the end of the phone to answer my questions and provide support. As a small business offering electric bike cycling holidays, this professional booking and payment system, which can dovetail into my existing business model is fantastic. I'm certain that TXGB will become an integral part of my business model and strongly recommend it to other small tourism businesses.”
