BookitDoit’s founder understands from experience what it’s like to run a tour/attraction in Regional Australia and is determined to use BookitDoit to direct travellers to your region.
We’ll be working hard to promote BookitDoit through media (with our partnership with Southern Cross Austereo)  and social media, work with RTO’s and State Tourism bodies to make BookitDoit the g
o-to platform for regional tours, attractions, events, Food/Wine/Beer experiences and accommodation.

Aussie travelers are going online to find things to do outside of the tourist honeypot areas and can’t find all there is to do and the authentic experiences they are craving because…

Online travel sites are dominated by high cost (commission and memberships) platforms leaving smaller operators and regions invisible online. BookitDoit is delivering an affordable marketing and booking solution for small business operators in regional areas making the previously invisible regions visible to the domestic-travel hungry tourists and locals looking to Stay-cay.

A word from BookitDoit’s founder.

Anyone living and working in regional areas knows we live in the best parts of Australia, away from the hustle and bustle and our great land is our backyard. We welcome visitors from all over and take pride in our offerings of amazing experiences, natural beauty, and a relaxed way of life.

In recent years we as operators are fortunate to have the internet as a way of being found and booked by people all over the country and the world. However regional areas, the best parts of Australia, are mostly overlooked by the major (foreign-owned) booking platforms who focus most of their offerings on the capital cities and a handful of regionals areas.

I myself have been through the process of pitching to international OTA’s and whilst they liked the idea of my horse riding adventures many just said they don’t sell into areas more than 1-2hrs from an international airport! That experience was the seed of my idea of BookitDoit, a 100% purely dedicated platform focusing on Regional Australian Tourism with affordable and realistic commission rates and membership fees.

Fourteen years ago I founded a marketing initiative called ”52+ Things to do in Greater Port Macquarie” with a mission to create awareness of the abundance of things to do in my region and create a level playing field for operators where everyone was promoted equally, from a one-man band Kayak tour to the major tourist attractions. Everyone paid the same and everyone was promoted in the same way, leaving it up to the visitors and locals to find and choose what they wanted to do. Often you will find the big businesses affording the big ads and smaller operators the small ads or not being able to afford to advertise at all, at least across all the media. BookitDoit just has two levels of membership, Free and $10 per week, just 10% commission for direct bookings and 15% for the digital itineraries.

After 20 great years as a tour operator now it’s time for me to take a backseat role to spend all my efforts in creating and promoting our wonderful regions across Australia for travellers to find, book and do your experiences, sample your delights, stay in your unique accommodations and enjoy the natural beauty that is Regional Australia!

  • Commission is a fee for a service we provided for your business.
  • It takes the hassle out of marketing, promoting and advertising your business
  • It Introduces new business not previously had {we connect new customers to your business}
  • This gives you more time to focus on running your business {time = money}
  • Commission gives you more avenues for sales and does not limit current sales of your business.
  • You can build a portion of the cost of commission into the sale price of your experience sold on BookitDoit.
  • Commission sales will also likely lead to more non – commission sales as you will get more promotion through us marketing your experience, reviews and word of mouth of customers by the commission sales will mean a greater awareness of your business. And therefore more sales overall!
