Scotland Tour Operators Fund

The criteria for the Scotland Inbound Tour Operators – COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund has widened and a new fund, the Scotland Day Tour Operators – COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund, has been introduced to support more Scotland-based businesses in the tour operator sector critical to Scotland’s tourism economy.

Due to the complexity and breadth of businesses within the sector, a two-strand approach to grant funding is necessary to meet the needs of the sector.

The two strands are: 

  • Scotland Inbound Tour Operators - COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund:  guidance available week beginning 1 March, applications open Thursday 4 March 2021
  • Scotland Day Tour Operators - COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity Fund:  guidance available now, applications open Thursday 4 March 2021

The £15 million fund is being delivered by VisitScotland on behalf of the Scottish Government and has been developed with input from the Scottish Tourism Alliance, the Scottish Destination Management Association, the Scottish Incoming Golf Tour Operators Association, UK Inbound and the Scottish Independent Tour Operators Association.
