Taupo agent takes rail dux prize
You Travel Taupo agent Megan Bishop’s strategy to avoid brain drain, has seen her beat 200 travel agents to be named the smartest rail expert in New Zealand for 2016. “My approach was to study everything and then do all the questions straight away because it’s the only way to ensure your brain retains all the knowledge,” she said. The reward for all her hard work – besides the kudos of being named Dux of this year’s Rail Plus Global Rail Expert programme – is a $1,000 Countdown voucher. This year’s runner up, Christiana Talbot (You Travel Timaru), took home a $750 Countdown voucher, while third placed Fenton Ngataierua (Flight Centre Queen Street, Auckland) received a $250 voucher.
