Mer­cury web­site proves mas­sive hit with agents

Selling Travel - - The Review -

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. mer­cury­hol­i­
