If you haven't figured out what to do for those summer passes yet, we've got you covered. Seasonal passes are great for encouraging people to get outside and explore the endless sunny opportunities available to them. Whatever your goal is, we can help you brainstorm a pass that showcases all the best warm weather activities in your community.

Here are 5 warm weather passport types to inspire you — plus, current client examples!

Ice Cream or Snowcone Check-In Challenges

Our sweet check-in challenges perform well across clients and are often seen as a perfect family-friendly activity. With prizes that range from giftcards to plushie toys, these trails find their peak seasons to be during family travel times like Spring Break and summer.

Encourage your locals and visitors to cool off this season with a check-in challenge or savings pass that focuses on chilly treats like ice cream, snowcones or frozen yogurt!

Hike, Bike and Paddle Trails

Outdoor enthusiasts look forward to warmer weather all year long, but that doesn’t mean they’re not looking for a new way to enjoy their favorite activities! Hike, Bike and Paddle Trail varieties are a popular way to encourage a variety of outdoor activities while still appealing to a niche audience of locals and visitors.

These passes are perfectly paired with Bandwango’s GPS check-in option, which allows passholders to check in at locations without having to worry about PIN codes.

Frozen Drink Passports

Hello margarita, daiquiri and colada season! If you’ve got patios serving up drinks with umbrellas in them, then this pass type could be the perfect thing to roll out as the warmer weather starts driving people to cooler drinks. After all, why should brew passes get all the love?

This is a great opportunity to work with your partners to craft signature drinks, too!

Dog-friendly Trails

Start tracking your furriest visitors with a dog-friendly passport in your destination. During spring and summer, furry friends abound on patios, breweries and trails. Encourage dogs and their owners to start tracking their visits to the dog-friendly destinations in your community with a check-in challenge or savings pass.

As a bonus, the prizes for these challenges are so easy to come up with and practically guarantee you a social share from the participants. We love collars, bandanas and dog tags!

Adventure and Explorer Passports

Here's your chance to offer everything you could ever want in an outdoor adventure: exploring caves, zip-lining, horseback riding, bird watching, you name it. If you've got outdoor recreation opportunities, encourage your users to get outside and explore by checking in to different locations on your pass.

You can also utilize social media and ask passholders to share photos of their outdoor adventures!
