Promoting safe summer travel is on every destination’s mind. As we look towards a future where more destinations are partially re-opened or utilizing outdoor space as an avenue for local and visitor adventures, Bandwango has ideas for unique ways to promote safe summer travel – featuring a fan favorite solution… check-in challenges!
Check out some Bandwango solutions that make the most of partial re-openings, outdoor activities and more.
Highlight your outdoor offerings
Give your audience a way to track their outdoor treks with a Bandwango check-in challenge. Gamifying outdoor adventures has been proven to drive locals and visitors to outdoor features like National Parks and hike and bike trails. Add a new aspect to your outdoor scene by challenging outdoor enthusiasts to compete with others in the area for most check-ins and rewarding them for getting out and exploring.
Put your mural scene on display
Show off your local art by creating a check-in challenge for visitors and locals in your city. Point your audience to the murals or local art installations in your city. Then, challenge them to hashtag their photos and share on social media. Each check-in at a mural gets them one step closer to claiming a prize. Plus, it generates great content and engages visitors and locals with art in your destination.
Celebrate your destination’s history
A guided tour through your destination is easier to create than you might think. Historic check-points are loaded into these passes. Each check-in at a historic location gets passholders closer to winning prizes. Additionally, Bandwango can add in audio snippets to these passports, which means the history of your destination can be shared seamlessly while people check-in and learn.

Create a family-friendly scavenger hunt
Choose locations in your destination, craft your own clues and capture check-ins with a scavenger hunt style passport. These passports create family-friendly experiences and send kids and parents on a quest throughout your destination. Whether your check-in points are culturally significant to your destination or they’re fun sights to see, this approach makes for an engaging and free experience for all.
Bonus: Attractions Savings Passport
If you’re not looking for unique ways to promote safe summer travel and instead are hoping to bring business back to your attractions, we’ve got a solution for that as well! If your attractions are open to the public (with the use of masks or timed ticketing), they could be part of a summer savings promotion. Bandwango’s mobile savings passport is the right solution to offer discounts to locals and visitors hoping to come through the doors of your attractions. Focusing the mobile savings passport on your attractions and having the pass expire at the end of the summer gives your audience a reason to plan their visit during the summer season and go back to their favorite attractions.
