Stichting Vogelpark Avifauna
Enable easy booking of school trips through special event shop
Bird park Avifauna is an important destination for school and Extracurricular care trips. With a separate shop, booking was made a lot easier for this group.
Vogelpark Avifauna in Alphen aan de Rijn is the oldest bird park in the world. The park opened in 1950 and now houses an impressive collection of birds and small mammals. Since 2013 the park has been a foundation which, in addition to managing the park, is also committed to bird and nature conservation, bird sanctuaries and nature education. Each year the park is visited by thousands of visitors and has been a favorite destination for school trips for many years. To ensure that schools and BSOs can book their day out in an easy manner and the full range of group tickets is well presented, Ticketcounter was called in.
Besides the regular ticket shop, an online arrangement shop was set up. In this shop, all products that make a day out a success are easily and clearly presented. First of all, the choice of a regular school trip ticket, a BSO ticket or a combination ticket with the nearby Archeon. After this, a choice can be made from various extras such as bird feed, lunch or tokens. In the final step, a number of additional questions are asked to facilitate communication with the school and invoicing. Finally, the school trip can be paid for directly via IDeal or can be chosen for deferred payment. All to maximize convenience for the booking party.
