Accommodation Booking facilities now coming online as Visit Somerset's major Digital Drive is under way.
 
You will know of our digital ambitions for Somerset, hence why our CEO has been developing a paper for Somerset County Council supporting funding, to launch a Big Data integration, to support Artificial Intelligence for the Visit Somerset website. We are pleased to say that the papers have now gone into Somerset County Council and are being considered.479a91a1-d52d-4f6f-bdb0-a5ec3bbab800-(1).jpg

Whilst those developments are being thought through Visit Somerset has been busy creating the frame works to launch two new booking systems through Beyonk, supporting booking of all experiences in the county, which is now just a week away from launch.   

Secondly we are now working with Visit Britain’s TXGB booking engine which will be live on the site in the next month. This functionality will be added to your dedicated landing page's and will offer considerably lower commission rates than traditional OTAs, all members to the Visit Somerset site will pay no commission apart from a one off fee to TXGB of 2.5% in the first 6 months, whilst we trial the systems success.

Works directly with your booking system. The TXGB platform is already connected to many of the industry booking systems. Just let us know which one you use when you sign up and we’ll do the rest.
