Bulk SMS for Travel Agencies & Tour Operators

The modern generation prefers text communication. Statistics indicate that SMSes are opened within 3 minutes in 90% of cases. Users spend more than five hours a day on their smartphones and you should use this possibility to notify them.


To build a new customer base, you should work with brand awareness by posting ads on social media and on your website. Using forms where a potential client must indicate his email or phone number helps to enrich the clients’ base. It gives you more possibilities to contact the audience.

When the consumer does not need to tell about its benefits, you just need to offer an additional profitable deal or improved product/service and the client is already yours.


Your main goals: to get the client or make them come back to you, again and again, increasing your revenue.


How: inform customers about new benefits and opportunities.


What you have for it: a formed base of customers who have already agreed to receive your SMS and use their mobile numbers.


Let’s revise how you can do it for your chosen type of business!

Let’s take a look into the ways how travel agencies are using SMS marketing for their business.


First, you should be guided by several simple rules:


  • the clear written text,
  • a brief summary of the key material,
  • non-spamming (if you abuse this type of marketing by simply sending ads, then your client will abandon you).

Types of texting SMS you can send


1. Promotions and discounts

Keep your customers informed about new promotions, discounts, and great deals. For example, last hours tours at a reduced price with a limited time to purchase this product. This method will help the client quickly make a choice and will not cost you a fortune.


2. Congratulatory SMS

More tours are purchased closer to the holidays, so it will be a good marketing play to remind yourself on the eve of the holiday by offering holiday discounts. Congratulations on a birthday to your clients can make them feel you care for them, giving special propositions or discounts in honor of the holiday.

3. News

You can inform your clients about the latest traveling news such as:

  • Travel Guide (for clients who chose the tour);
  • Opening new offices (for easy access in different parts of the city);
  • Tours and last minute deals (the best decision for reaching sales);
  • Early booking option (to inform about the possibility of carrying the holiday vacation in advance).

4. Reminders

People often forget some information due to their busy schedules. A simple SMS with a reminder of the departure date of the aircraft, the program of the tour, payment for the voucher or schedule of departure and arrival will not cause negative emotions in a person. On the contrary, it will help structure a person’s schedule.

5. The confirmation

Thanks to SMS texting, you can make sure that the client definitely intends to purchase this or that service. Confirmation via texting SMS is a very convenient thing since phones are almost always near a person. Thus, you can request a confirmation for booking a tour or a confirmation of payment.

SMS texting for regular customers

For customers, you have been interacting with for a long time, you can send exclusive offers to increase their loyalty. Such clients will definitely stay with you if you show how important they are to you.


Remember that writing a good message will help you not only retain your audience but also increase your capital.


Stay on a shorthand with the consumer, but do not bore him with unnecessary information, then your brand will enjoy success among potential consumers and old verified customers.


Let’s do it together!
