What is Beyonk?
Beyonk was set up to provide an easier to use booking system and an easier way to sell tickets through third parties with fair rates. They work with leading destinations from Cornwall to the Lake District and other ethical websites such as the National Parks and membership bodies.
By selling tickets through our website, you'll automatically be sharing your tickets across this distribution network, helping customers find you across other key websites.
How does it work?
Go to Beyonk.com, create an account and upload your experiences. There are no sign-up fees, or credit card details to get started. There are no minimum term contract lengths and it's aimed to be completely self-service but the team are always on hand to help you get started.
Within 20 minutes you can be completely set up with multiple experiences bookable online. With lots of features to suit a broad range of tourism businesses from gift aid, free tickets with no commission, collecting information pre-checkout, and automating emails, Beyonk has worked with hundreds of businesses to create a flexible solution to work for the majority.
If you don't have a booking system or want to upgrade, you can add the Beyonk booking widgets on your website within minutes to share your live availability across your own website and ours and the team can join a video call to instruct you or your website providers how to do it.
If you already have a booking system you can upload tickets easily. If you have flexible capacity, you can upload your spare 'Instant Booking' tickets and you'll be emailed when you receive bookings, you'll need to update these when the capacity changes. If you have strict capacity, you can upload 'Pending Bookings' and you'll have the chance to accept, rearrange or reschedule with the customer when it works for you both. Payment is authorised and taken automatically when you accept the booking, avoiding the need for invoices and admin.
To find out more message email@example.com and one of the team will be in contact to help, let them know that you are a TSE member.
What is meant by 'diversifying my distribution'?
It means that you, as a tourism business, can choose from a selection of distribution channels, domestically and internationally, all in one place. These range from niche operators, to OTAs, and – most importantly on destination websites like www.visitsoutheastengland.com
It also allows you to make your own website bookable, if it isn’t already, for no extra cost.
How is this helping local tourism recovery?
As businesses reopen post-Covid, we are investing in bringing visitors back to South East England. We want to make it as easy as possible to “know before you go”, by providing the latest visitor information on our website. We will be driving visitors to our website through our own activity, and that of VisitEngland. And we want it to be as easy as possible for visitors to look and then book. By selling your product on www.visitsoutheastengland.com you’re front and centre stage of our recovery campaign.
