How to Sell Group Travel

  • Book a trip. The 10 paid, 1 free program is a great way to start group travel.  You start small and successful and then grow as you go.  Pick some dates, book the trip, and then promote it on all of your customer communication avenues.
  • Prominently display SIDE brochures within your store.  Some shops will even add their own store information to the brochure to remind the client of where they picked up the brochure.  Click here to request brochures.
  • Like our Facebook page and share content to your own feed.  We have a number of great videos and news items that are sure to be of interest to your clients.
  • Put a link to us on your website as a preferred travel destination.  We can work with you or your web developer to provide images, text or even code to make this simple.  We are happy to link back to your website as one of our preferred dive shops!  Just send us your logo.
