What to Consider When Choosing a DMC to Work With

Have you recently decided that you’d like to start working with a Destination Management Company (DMC)? Great! Before you jump the gun, there’s a few things you may want to consider first to ensure you are choosing one that is right for you.

Experience

One of the most important things to consider before choosing a DMC to work with is their experience. We really believe that a DMC’s knowledge and expertise lies within their experience. The longer they have been in the business, the greater their knowledge, expertise and connections will be, which will ultimately make everything a lot easier for you. Hiring a DMC with years of experience can be the difference between an average service and an incredible service. We stand by this belief because we have been in the business for 38 years, becoming experts in planning leisure and golfing packages in Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales.

Memberships and Accreditations

Look for any professional industry organisations DMCs belong to as well as accreditations as these usually signify trust and knowledge. Best of Scotland Holidays is proud members of SIGTOA, SDMA and UKInbound.  We can also proudly display the Good to Go and Safe Travels mark meaning that we have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have adopted the SafeTravels health and hygiene global standardised protocols.

Offering

You must always find out exactly what the DMC is offering. Are they a full-service DMC or just a middle man? A full-service DMC means they provide everything; accommodation, transportation, meet and greet, excursions and much more. Other DMCs may just be the middle man and outsource services. You’ll also want to know what kind of packages are on offer and how bespoke their experiences are. Afterall, travellers want unique experiences and exciting ways to soak up the culture and flavor of a destination, so you may want to find a DMC who can offer a great variety.

 

Relationships

Working with a DMC means you will be able to take advantage of their relationships with local suppliers like accommodation providers, restaurants, entertainment and attractions. We have great relationships with our suppliers such golf resorts across the country, which is great news for you and your customers as it means we can help you get better prices and greater flexibility.
