Why you should join GoTo Norway today
6 reasons why you should partner with GoToNorway
Did you know that when you book a tour on a global Online Travel Agency (OTA), about 20% to 30% of the revenue is shipped out of Norway? The best option to address this matter is by choosing to go local. Our GoToNorway business model was nurtured from the seed of this very idea – to allow tourism to stay local. When tours are booked on our platform, travellers from all over the world can witness the beauty of Norway’s unspoilt nature and learn more about our rich cultural heritage from the locals themselves. With reputable local tour suppliers on board, we will be able to equip the 21st-century traveller with the best options available to ensure they have a memorable stay in Norway, whether they want to hike to the Kjerag boulder or cruise across Lysefjord.

5) All the revenue generated stays local
As mentioned earlier, when tours are booked on global OTAs, a share of the revenue goes out of the country. This can be avoided when you choose to go local. By advertising your tour products and packages on our GoToNorway portal, the entire revenue stays in Norway, as we are local-based. It will immensely boost our thriving local tourism industry, which in turn benefits the Norwegian economy.

When a customer pays for a tour, you will receive the funds in your bank account within a fortnight of the tour taking place. We will not lock your funds and will make payouts as soon as the fourteen days are complete. One of our efficient team members will also give you a breakdown of the commission charges so that you can have a better understanding of how the commission is distributed locally.
