TAWKer Supporter Program, what is it?
The TAWKer Supporter Program - What is it and what are the benefits for Families AND Caravan Parks/Camping Spots and Businesses that are now joining?
The TAWKer Supporter Program began after I finished our 2 year trip around Australia with our 3 children and I started this website. I started to reflect on our expenses and just how much extra we had to pay for our children on our travels and how we ended up having to search for free camp spots to assist financially.
It struck me that when we did stay in a park, it was often very empty. The only time we found them busy were at peak holiday times. I wondered how the two issues could be helped.
"At the moment many families are 'free camping' due to the extra fees Caravan Parks charge for their children, therefore Caravan Parks are actually losing business. By joining the TAWKer Supporter Program, families might come to you and you have the opportunity to keep them there. Best of all, they are travelling ALL year round!" - Mandy Farabegoli - TAWK Founder.
TAWKer Supporter Program
I wondered how we could help parks and get families to them during their non busy times and help families too. Hence my idea of the TAWKer Supporter Program.
The idea being:
- Parks/Camp Spots offer 2 night's FREE camping for TAWK Member's Kids
- TAWK Members stay at the Park/Camp Spot rather than heading to a free camping spot nearby
- Parks have the opportunity to upsell TAWK Members to stay longer, spend money in their shop or offer them a local tour if they have a deal/commission arrangement with local attractions
- Families will often use the park's washing machines (many times normally - so money can be made up from this alone!!) as lots of us do not have an en-suite with washing machines like many of the Grey Nomads travelling. Families often need the space for beds for the kids.
"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for your perseverance in convincing me to be a part of #TravelAustraliaWithKids TAWKer Supporter Program. As we have been blown away with the families that have come to stay with us and the amount of your members that are travelling. Wonderful to have all these families stayed with us and hear their stories of travels and adventures" - Lee Irvin - Manager from Ivanhoe Village Holiday Resort Kununurra
