USA Tourism Survey – Give Them the Red Carpet Experience and They Will Come Back for More!

the idea girl says

They like to be pampered and organized.

The VIp tourism package ideas that I’ve suggested would APPEal to more american tourists where we include food, hotels, and entertainment ideas all rolled into one set fee.

they like discounts and last minute deals, implement that into your bookings for hotels, get a cancellation?

give a discount to the next booking!

they look online for discounts, so set up a phone app for them to use for this.

Build websites where they can pre purchase the VIP travel package plans BEFORE they get here.
with the option to use them within a 2 year plan but pricing is locked in for at least 12 months to 1 year.

USA Tourism Why Don’t You want to Visit Niagara Falls Ontario Canada?

the idea girl says

I can see it’s the same for both americans and canadians – getting hassled at the border is the #1 reason I haven’t gone to visit there.

SARS (that isn’t an issue in 2014)

Passport requirement,
Do they have the same options as us? Nexxus and Enhanced Drivers Licenses in the USA?

If not someone needs to suggest this be added to president barack Obama’s to do list…

Negative attitudes of people – our customer service needs to be a pleasant experience for our travelers.

I wont address the rest of it.
