If it worked for them …

National Forest E-Bike Holidays

“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. 

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.”

Sue Jerham, Director
 

Scranchester Tours

“I have found the process of using TXGB very straightforward and any queries I’ve had have been answered fully and promptly by the support team. The process for setting up my tours and managing my availability on TXGB load is easy and uncomplicated. The fact that in the future I will be able to integrate my ticketing provider with TXGB means that I will be able to manage my allocations in real-time from one place, which will make the whole process even easier. Linking up my Stripe payment account could not have been easier.

I have been operating my food tour business for less than two years. TXGB allows me, as a small business, to access platforms and to make links with travel trade which in the past would not have been possible. I am excited to see the platform grow and develop, and can thoroughly recommend it to other tourism businesses.”
