Travel 2 enters peak season with strong offers to help agents clinch bookings

Travel 2 is entering the traditional peak booking season armed with an arsenal of new initiatives and incentives to make holiday bookings as easy and lucrative as possible for agents and to say a big thank you for their support.

In addition to extending their “Every Day’s a Pay Day” incentive campaign which allows agents to earn various amounts of shopping vouchers, ranging from £5 to £70 on qualified bookings every day throughout January and February, the trade only operator has introduced new ‘Price Beat’ and ‘Advanced Booking’ policies to ensure agents get the possible prices for their clients. A new call routing process has been introduced to deliver quicker turnaround and speedier access to our sellers.  

Available on key competitor packages, if agents find the same holiday cheaper with another operator, Travel 2 will beat it by £10. In addition, the new Advance Booking policy guarantees greater security and flexibility when making bookings for 2014 and beyond.  

Agents looking to get away from it all in 2014 will have multiple ways of doing so as well, with two MEGA FAM trips to South Africa and Thailand in Spring 2014 plus further FAM’s planned to the four corners of the world. To be in with a chance to win all agents have to do is make a booking with Travel 2.  

Travel 2 has also made a number of improvements to its call centre and to help cope with the expected peak season demand will be operating on Sunday’s hours throughout January and February. A new call routing process has also been introduced to deliver quicker turnaround and speedier access to sellers. For immediate answers to their questions, agents can use Travel 2’s improved ‘Instant Chat’ service for quick questions replies, be they baggage requirements, payment dates, seating plans and more.

With new dedicated Caribbean and Florida sales teams based in Glasgow and an expanded marketing team, trade partners can expect to receive even more support during the peak booking season. And to ensure Travel 2 is top of mind, key account managers will be fanning out across the country, visiting agencies to strengthen their destination and product expertise.  

To further aid selling, Travel 2 released a new Indochina brochure for agents at the end of December and a new dedicated Touring brochure, another ‘first’ for the company.  

Travel 2 sales and marketing director, Gordon McCreadie, commented:   “This is an exciting time for the Travel 2 brand. We remain 100% trade only, therefore our trade partners continue to be at the forefront of everything we do and every decision we make. During this key booking period it is crucial that agents make sure they choose their partners carefully and only support the partners that support them .With the many incentives and programmes we’re rolling out in the next couple of months, we’re confident that agents will have all the tools they need to sell with the utmost confidence during turn of year and beyond.”
