Accommodations, activities, restaurants, bars in London cater for a range of different people and their needs. London itself is very cultural and offers high standards but isn’t the best for value of money. Scenario 2: Scenario 3: Scenario 4: A group of students on a BTEC course in Business and Retail want to visit the Trafford Centre, Manchester. They want to stay over and enjoy a night out in Manchester. Accommodation range- Britannia Hotel Manchester situated on Portland Street and located close to rail, bus and coach stations; the hotel costs from £35 - £75. Premier Inn Manchester City Centre, situated on Lower Mosley Street; there are budget hotels but more expensive hotels ranging from £70 -£89. For students the best hotel would be the Premier Inn as it is central for bars, clubs and the night life. There is also accommodation situated near the Trafford centre with Premier Inn Manchester Trafford Centre West and Travelodge Manchester Trafford Park Hotel. Costs, standards and value for money- Manchester is good value for money as it has many attractions, restaurants, bars &clubs and hotels and the Trafford Centre. Manchester would appeal to any tourist as there are lots to do. They have a high standard with a great nightlife and is family friendly, their hotels cost depending on where you stay there are many Premier Inn’s and Travelodge’s. Transport and accessibility- You can travel around Manchester using the train, metro link, bus, air and road, Manchester is very accessible. Manchester airport is the only global gateway to Northern England; the students can use air to get to Manchester. Customer service and quality assurance- In Manchester customer service is important to any city you visit as it giving out a good impression to any first time tourists. Manchester is the global gateway to Northern England so language is important when dealing with tourists, in this case language should not be a problem. But customer service should be good as they are visiting the Trafford centre and if their customer service is not good then no one will visit again. Activities- The students want to visit the Trafford centre and go out in the evening; the Trafford centre has 230 stores available and is just 5 miles outside Manchester City Centre, they have a 20 screen Odeon cinema and have stores ranging from designer to high street.

A family from the USA, mum, dad and two sons (aged 3 and 6), want to visit their relatives in Kent and experience some of the visitor attractions. They will be staying for two weeks. Accommodation range- In Kent there is a wide range of accommodation types with hotels, camping, self-catering, alternative accommodation and green accommodation. With younger children it would be better to stay in self-catering or alternative accommodation, you can pick from 12 different areas to stay in depending on where relatives live. An example of self catering in Canterbury, Whitstable and Herne bay, there are many cottages and apartments ranging from different prices. Costs, standards and value for money- Kent is known as the Garden of England and has beautiful coasts and countryside areas, Kent is good value for money with loads of attractions to see and do for all the family. The costs and standards of Kent are great and this is shown through the attractions throughout Kent. Transport and accessibility- This family would be better to use car hire for example Hertz, Avis or Europcar, these are all car hire’s in the UK. As the family wants to travel around to different attractions in Kent then it would be better to use the road, Kent is accessible and is easier to travel around with a car than a train. Customer service and quality assurance- Customer service is very important to any area where tourists visit as it may be there first time visiting that area, Kent is a big county and offers many things from theme parks to historical and cultural events. At all of these events, accommodation as well customer service and quality assurance is important to ensure that tourist has the best experience. Activities- There are many activities in Kent from long walks in countryside areas like Tenterden, this family will have different motives as they have a family of different ages compared with the students and the couple from Cardiff. The family can visit Chessington World Adventures which for a family of four would cost £108 at the gate; they also have a sea life centre and a zoo for the children to explore. In Kent you can also visit Dickens World which is rich in history and is fun for the children. A couple from China are visiting the UK. They have never visited before and would like to visit all the capitals of the UK: they are interested in history and culture.

They could also hire a car, or there are some deals on the national tourist board, Visit Britain; some include National Express coach travel from £6 and Heathrow express ticket from £9. Customer service and quality assurance- This is very important and this couple or any other inbound tourist may want to ensure that when travelling to a place they have never been before that quality service is assured.
