Should you hire or buy a Tour Guide System?

We offer impartial, balanced advice in selecting the right system for your needs, while considering the lifetime cost of ownership.

Buying or renting a tour guide system depends on how often you are likely to use it. Many customers start by renting a system on two or three occasions before deciding that purchasing a system outright would be more convenient and financially worthwhile. Similarly, customers who bought a system for their regular events may subsequently hire extra tour guide equipment for larger events such as open days.

Buy a Tourguide System

We have been selling tour guide systems for more than 30 years, to many types of industries across the UK and Europe. With our experience we are confident we can advise you on the best solution for your needs and within available budget - we select the products carefully, following extensive testing in real environments.

You can purchase the number of receivers you need now and add more in the future as your tours grow. If you have infrequent, special events and need additional tour guide receivers, then you can top-up your own tour guide system by hiring in the extras you need. We also offer business leasing as an alternative to capital purchase.

Try Before You Buy

Don't just take our word for it - we have demonstration equipment for all of the tour guide systems we sell, so you may try the equipment for yourself to make comparisons. You may prefer to hire initially and then purchase your own tour guide equipment for your regular tours (ask for details of our Hire-&-Buy Offer).
