Categories: Latest News

Only six months after being launched more than 10,000 people have taken advantage of hundreds of downloadable discounts, thanks to NewcastleGateshead Initiative’s Discover Deals.

The online voucher scheme was introduced by destination management and marketing organisation, NewcastleGateshead Initiative to replace the popular Discover Pass, which was previously available to buy for £10.

With more than 100 FREE to download discounts at attractions, bars, restaurants, attractions and hotels, the offers are now available via your smart phone or home computer.

Sarah Stewart, chief executive of NewcastleGateshead Initiative said: “As more people search online for value for money offers, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for visitors and residents to get their hands on the latest deal in NewcastleGateshead. The deals also benefit our many tourism businesses by driving extra customers through their door.

“The online approach has also allowed us to work with our partners at VisitEngland to profile NewcastleGateshead as part of their Holidays at Home campaign, making the deals searchable via the national Great 2012 Offers website.

“The high number of downloads in the first six months of Discover Deals, demonstrates not only the quality of the discounts available, but also the breadth of exciting things to do and see in NewcastleGateshead.

“This Bank Holiday weekend is the perfect time to visit or rediscover the destination, and make some great savings along the way.”

Since Discover Deals launched in April a total of 10,596 vouchers have been downloaded from

Emma Arkley, of Ocean Beach Pleasure Park said: “The Discover Deals vouchers have been really successful for us and we have seen a significant number of people using the discount.

“By putting a link to the deal on our website as well, we have made it even easier for people to take advantage of this saving. It also gives people the chance to see what other fantastic offers are available through Discover Deals.”
