    Dear Carmen,

    Thanks so much for reaching out. if you can provide a bit more specific info on the type of tour, location, etc, we can then provide more targeted feedback. In the meanwhile, here are some options to consider.
    To get started, here are some generic thoughts on places you can advertise your business.

    Tourism NZ – register.newzealand.com – This is the official Tourism NZ website, and highly viewed, so critical to have a current listing on this site.

    Get in touch with your local Regional Tourism Operator. They likely have marketing initiatives in place that you may be able to join. Or you can also advertise on their sites too.

    Some local options to reach the consumer directly:

    Travel Locally New Zealand, http://www.facebook.com/groups/travellocallynz

    New Zealand Travel Tips (NZTT), http://www.facebook.com/groups/newzealandtraveltips

    Live, Love, Explore: Support Local New Zealand, https://www.facebook.com/groups/liveloveexplorelocalnewzealand

    Chooice, http://www.facebook.com/groups/Chooice

    This one is good for support from the tourism industry:
    NZ Tourism Industry Covid-19 Support Group, http://www.facebook.com/groups/647725352678015

    And, there is also the Tourism Transition Fund where you can apply for funding to get individual advice for your business, covid19.nzte.govt.nz/page/regional-business-partner-network.

    Domestic tourism recovered well after the first lock down, and hopefully the same will happen once Auckland gets out of it’s restrictions once again.
