Turks & Caicos Launches Travel App to Activate Tourism
Tourism has been the bread and butter of the Turks and Caicos Islands, generating millions in revenue before the COVID-19 pandemic put a halt on tourism activity across the globe.
Now, with vaccination processes speeding up in countries around the world, Grand Turk native and innovative entrepreneur Nathaniel Handfield, has developed a technological solution to bring tourism on the islands back to its original pace and beyond it.
Best Of TCI is an innovative travel directory that virtually puts the entire Turks & Caicos Islands in the palm of your hands and allows consumers the ability to communicate directly with business owners.
The website/app is enlisting all the businesses and services available across the island on a single platform allowing consumers to conveniently locate, and share their experiences with every local business from their smartphone or laptop.
Businesses, both small and large, have great control over their listings on the website/app and can choose to offer deals and coupons to generate business. They can also update their listing to advertise any events that may be taking place at their establishment. Bookings feature is also available on the website/app for the businesses that have use of it.
To rebuild the local community after the COVID-19 tourism block, Nathaniel Handfield has made a crucial decision with regards to this website/app. The decision is that the website/app will not charge businesses any commission whatsoever for the service that it is providing.
This decision allows businesses, particularly small scale businesses, to rebuild and once again be able to reach their target revenue; something they have been struggling to do since the pandemic began.
