As a tour operator, it’s vital that you leverage the internet as much as possible to increase your tour sales. We’ve spoken a lot about the Octopus Method to improve your internet presence, but we wanted to up the ante: so much so that we spent months scouring the internet finding places to list your tours. The result? A list of epic proportions.

The best news? Most of the sites are free to list on. Some allow you to advertise your brand — directing travelers to your site to make bookings, while others sell your tours for you. Some are niche and target specific audiences, while others are all-encompassing OTAs that reach millions of people across the globe.

Due to the sheer size of this list, you might be wondering which you should list your tours on. Our advice? List them on as many platforms as possible — as long as they are somewhat relevant to your tours.

Enjoy our recently updated list of 95 places to list your tour!
