Mobile messaging for the travel and tourism industry

Boost customer satisfaction and streamline bookings with text messaging

Textlocal's SMS marketing and communication service gives unprecedented access to customers; giving international and UK businesses in the travel and tourism industries the means to directly, yet unobtrusively share carefully selected information with the most receptive recipients.

Text messaging allows you to keep your customers up to date with alerts and travel updates at any time. With an unparalleled average open rate of 98%, SMS beats all other forms of communication for ease, speed and value - and is very cost-effective.

The ease with which messages can be composed and sent to many recipients with our bulk SMS messaging service allows information on flight delays, or other time sensitive information to be easily dispatched to those who need it most, further building customer goodwill and brand loyalty.

The contact gathering and sorting functions within the Textlocal business make it an absolute cinch for businesses in the travel and tourism industries to provide tailored offers to specific customer demographics; ensuring that customers only receive information and offers that are most relevant to them!

Textlocal's advanced features create messages that are so much richer than just 160 characters - and we have a range of solutions for other areas of your business too.

Quick and Easy Multiple Contacts

I used Txtlocal whilst Operations Manager to keep our bus drivers up to date on issues such as road closures, traffic delays and positive feedback. With over a hundred drivers it was easy to import their mobile numbers from my contact database, type the message and schedule a send for a later time. Add to that the fact that each txt is cheap and it is a great package. I now use Txtlocal with my bowling club to let them all know of competitions coming up and deadlines for rounds to be completed. Less numbers involved but very effective. I particularly love the ease of typing up the message from the keyboard rather than a phone.

Numbers Boosted

We have seen an increase in the take up by parents of our school Holiday Camps. The immediate direct contact with parents allows us to give them information directly into their hands that they can act on for booking places. This is really both convenient and easy, especially with smart phone users. We feel that the use of Text Local has enhanced our reach and communications effectiveness.
