What is a Tour Code?
Theatre Digs Booker Tour Codes allow exclusive access to a unique feature created especially for Touring Theatre professionals on multi-night, UK tours.
What does a Tour Code do? for Guests
- Tour Page: View all tour dates on one page
- Quick Searched: Pre-filled venue and date searches for each ‘Tour Stop’
- Manage Bookings - easily see which tour dates you still need to book
- Higher acceptance rates - Hosts have more confidence knowing a Guest is officially part of a verified tour. This is what a Host sees on a Guest profile once the tour code has been used:
Once a registered Guest has successfully entered their Tour Code, all venues and dates on the tour are displayed on one, easy-to-manage page built exclusively for Theatre Professionals.
What does a Tour Code do? For producers and venues
Supply management - we can inform venues and producers of potential shortfall in time for them to take action.
Quick assistance - knowing which tour a Guest is on helps TDB contact Company Managers directly to assist with issues.
We work directly with theatre producers and company managers who supply us with their touring schedules. A unique Tour Code is then created for each individual theatre tour and is distributed to Guests via their company manager or production company.
Why do I need a Tour Code?
You don’t have to use a Tour Code to book your Digs, however it is much easier to search, book and manage digs bookings on the site with a Tour Code.
Without a Tour Code Guests have to manually search and book each venue separately.
Also, without a Tour Code, we are unable to fully manage supply reports for your producers and venue meaning that there is more chance there are not enough of the right kind of digs for every stop on your tour.
Many hosts also prefer to only receive bookings from Guests who are on official tours so your chances of getting a booking, accepted or greater if you use a tour code.
How do I get a Tour Code?
Guests can get a Tour Code from their company/tour manager. If they haven't got one yet, they can contact us with the following information:
The size of the company
The tour schedule - dates and venues
The Tour website (if there is one)
We will then create the code and forward all details to the company/tour manager to distribute to company members.
