Offering multiple packages:

By offering multiple packages, operators will offer potential visitors choices, raise awareness of regional activities, and give reasons for visitors to increase their length stay in an area.  If you are offering multiple packages they must meet the following criteria:

  • Each package must be unique and include a unique pairing of transportation, accommodations, meals, tickets, tours or activities/experiences.  NOTE: If you are creating packages with the same offering and multiple night options, this is considered one package and the details concerning pricing and night stays should be listed in the conditions section.
  • Must include a unique title per package.
  • Must include a unique photo per package.
