Visit Dorset website continues to break records!
The Visit Dorset website traffic has seen a sensational recovery following the enforced lockdowns. We recently saw our best June on record with 369,000 visits and July also topped its previous best with nearly 480,000 visits.
Alongside the record-breaking website traffic, online accommodation bookings are also increasing. May and June accounted for our busiest ever online booking period on the site with the value of accommodation bookings taken at nearly £20k. It’s a really positive sign to see consumer confidence returning and visitors booking their accommodation directly on our site as the tourism economy starts to recover.
If you'd like to implement online booking for your accommodation landing page on the Visit Dorset website contact a member of the team for more details and we’ll be happy to advise you.
The continued success of the Visit Dorset website shows just how popular Dorset is as a leading visitor destination. The website plays a key role in supporting our Dorset tourism industry and giving our members a fantastic platform to reach larger audiences.
