Mercury website proves massive hit with agents
MERCURY Holidays says its dedicated travel agent support website is attracting over 5,000 visitors a month, less than six months after its launch.
To support the website, and to help agents learn more about the brand and its products, the operator is developing a travel agent training website that is due to go live in the next few months.
The support website features news, promotions, incentives and information on fam trips and educationals. It also enables agents to find local Mercury Holidays field sales agents to arrange appointments, choose from holiday deals and personalise them with their agency phone number and logo.
Mercury Holidays says feedback from agents has shown the most popular feature to be the window poster tool, which enables agents to create their own tailored window designs and PDF flyers.
The operator is also introducing 11 new escorted tours, six new destinations, a solo tours programme and package holidays to Thailand in its third-edition Escorted Tours and European & Worldwide Holidays brochures for 2018 – 2019.
Highlights include sailing Turkey’s Blue Coast region from £599pp and touring Rudyard Kipling’s India from £1,249pp. mercuryholidays.co.uk/travel-agents
