QiT - Recommend Friend and TIC Incentive

Tuesday, 18th February 2014

Quality in Tourism (QiT), the official assessment service provided for VisitEngland, have launched two new initiatives for new and existing members.

The first exclusive campaign ‘recommend a friend’ will be running up until 31st March for Quality in Tourism members. Once a member has recommended another accommodation provider, they will receive a £50 Love2Shop voucher (once the new provider they have recommended has agreed to be assessed by QiT). The new member will then be entitled to 50% off the joining fee.

Neil Quigley, the Managing Director at Quality in Tourism, said “We are proud to launch this initiative as we want to give back as much as possible to our members. This is just a little way of us saying thank you, and also provides a nice welcome to our new participants!”

There is also a second campaign running up until the 31st March. The exclusive ‘Tourist Information Centre’ offer allows Tourist Information Centre’s to recommend Quality in Tourism to potential members. The new members can then receive 50% off their joining fee, whilst the Tourist Information Centre’s receive a reward for recommending the member. 

Neil explained: “This campaign has been launched in order to give a little back to the Tourist Information Centre’s and also welcome new members. We want people to feel like they are getting quality with us, after all, it’s what we stand by!”

Notes to Editor

Quality in Tourism (QiT) is the official assessment service provided for VisitEngland. With a field force of more than 40 experienced assessors and a highly dedicated in-house team, the organisation carries out assessments and handles the administration of the national quality assessment schemes on behalf of VisitEngland.

Over 18,000 accommodation businesses are assessed annually across eleven different schemes, making VisitEngland (in conjunction with Quality in Tourism) the largest provider of quality assessment in England.As the UK’s leading accreditors, Quality in Tourism knows what’s best when it comes to quality. Independently accessing every establishment, Quality in Tourism finds out exactly what each guest will want and need.

The standards Quality in Tourism assess to have been created as a result of harmonising standards from the National Tourist Boards for England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and also with the cooperation of the AA.

Most of the schemes featured throughout this website recognise increasing levels of quality using a rating system of 1 – 5 stars. In a select number of schemes, excellence is further acknowledged with the use of the acclaimed Silver and Gold awards.
