With 5.9 million visits a year, our online shop is the go-to place for overseas visitors to pick up what they need to make the most of their stay. Our key online sales are travel passes and tickets for major tourist attractions, including English Heritage, the National Trust touring pass and BritRail, encouraging visitors to explore Britain.
In 2016/17 the VisitBritain Shop reached £28.4m with a net profit of £2.23m – up 25% on 2015/16 – income that can be reinvested in marketing Britain overseas. We loaded 70 new products over the year, taking the total number of bookable products to more than 350 including 123 regiona itineraries.
Our sales partnership with VFS Global, through the UK Visa Applications Centres in India, Middle East and South Africa, gives us cost-effective access to markets, enables us to spread the ‘welcome to Britain’ message and provides you the opportunity to showcase your brand in Visa Application Centres. During 2016/17, we merged Visa Facilitation Services (VFS) shops with our VisitBritain Shop platform to make it easier for visitors to access more products across the VFS network.
