Once again, Bath Christmas Market is getting ready to welcome coach groups from all over the country to enjoy its festive atmosphere and unique shopping, and this year organisers Bath Tourism Plus are making this great tour opportunity even easier for you. As well as opening the coach parking booking system nice and early (you can book your preferred drop off and pick up now!), you could also win your charge back if you book for a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday – all coaches booked on these days will be entered into a free prize draw, with 30 winners.
Tours and groups can pre-order event programmes now, to be delivered to you prior to the event , so that your customers can get into the festive mood and begin planning their visit while still on the road. These will be sent with food vouchers for the driver or group organiser. For much of the event, there will be a welcoming party at the coach drop off point, ready to direct your eager customers in the right direction (whether that is to the market, café or nearest loo!).
The market’s location, in the heart of the city, is also perfect for visitors to enjoy all that the city has to offer – a wonderful mix of high street and designer shops, fascinating attractions and warm, inviting cafes and bars.The event organisers have even provided an online marketing toolkit, with images, words and images to help you to promote your tour and fill up every seat – in fact, if you can even include your tour in a list on the event website, free of charge.
Bath Christmas Market offers a brilliant tour opportunity – it is hugely popular with visitors, there are no tickets or entry fees to organise, and there are numerous ways to incorporate it into a wider Christmas themed tour.
Coaches visiting Bath during the operational dates of the Christmas Market need to register with Bath & North East Somerset Council (www.bathnes.gov.uk/parking).
More details of all of the above, including terms and conditions for the prize draw are available on the website www.bathchristmasmarket.co.uk
