FAQs for businesses
Your Title Goes Here
Do I need to be a member of Cumbria Tourism to partake in the MyCumbria Card scheme?
No, you just need to be a Cumbrian business.
Are there any rules for providing an offer?
Providers are requested to honour their offer for a year after coming on board, as this enables card holders to get the most from their year of membership. Providers can then continue to renew their offer year on year.
We ask that offers are a minimum of 10%, a 2-for-1 or similar, as these are most straightforward and valuable for the members.
When someone presents their MyCumbria Card at my business, how many people does the discount apply to?
This is entirely up to you as the offer provider and will be established when you sign up. For example, a restaurant may choose to allow their offer to apply to bookings of up to 4 people per MyCumbria card.
Many providers chose to have their offer as unlimited, in order to simplify things and encourage more business.
Can I further promote my business more during off-peak times?
Yes you can! The best way to do this is to get in touch with us and provide an additional offer. We will then promote the additional offer and your business in our marketing.
What do I do if I suspect that someone is using a MyCumbria Card fraudulently?
This very much depends on the circumstances, however it would be very helpful if you could report the card number to us so that we can investigate further on your behalf.
This is what people are saying about MyCumbria
Since joining the MyCumbria scheme many of our team members have enjoyed days out such as horse riding, escape rooms and segway adventures along with many slices of cake and cups of coffee which taste even better with the My Cumbria Card discount. As a business we encourage our staff to shop local to help with our mission to become more sustainable. The discount from the MyCumbria Card definitely encourages and supports team members to do this. The bulk buy option to purchase the cards not only gives us more discount on the purchase, it makes the ordering of cards quick and easy.
