National Tourism Organisations have until the 7th of June 2019 to submit application to fast-track the creation of their Pocket Guide.
Running surveys on thousands of travellers, South Pacific Pocket Guide has identified the that the #1 barrier to travel to the South Pacific islands as the “lack of trustworthy information”. To help increase travel numbers to the South Pacific, South Pacific Pocket Guide will create an online travel guide for each of the South Pacific nations in the next 7 years.
The decision to create travel guides that are primarily online stems from the fact that 86% of travellers starting their journey online, a space where the South Pacific region is currently under-represented.
The South Pacific Pocket Guide team will be visiting two new South Pacific destinations in July 2019 to share their online skills with the tourism community and create a new full online travel guide by the end of the year.
The guides will follow similar design and content policy than FijiPocketGuide.com which already has over 450 insightful articles. For context, this represents 4 times more content than the current largest guidebook of Fiji. The website, launched in January 2019 already has thousands of organic readers from Australia, USA and more each week which is impressive for such a new website.
The creations of the Pocket Guide online travel guides come at no cost to National Tourism Organisations and is fully funded by South Pacific Pocket Guide.
