Blue Sky Tours now offers multi-island booking options through VAX VacationAccess. With multi-island booking options, travel agents no longer have to book multiple reservations or call the reservation center for assistance when creating multiple island itineraries for customers, VAX reports. VAX Vacation Access is used by more than 100,000 leisure travel agents.
Blue Sky Tours is part of The Mark Travel Corporation and exclusively creates and sells Hawaii vacations through travel agents. Travel agents booking Blue Sky Tours through VAX can earn up to 14 percent commission on the hotel portion of the vacation package immediately. Agent commissions are paid when final payment is made on the reservations, not after travel commences.
“We’re excited to add this capability to an already great booking engine and we will continue to make improvements to ensure the best way to book the best vacation to Hawaii is through Blue Sky Tours with the assistance of a professional travel agent,” said Kevin Wilmore, Vice President - General Manager of Blue Sky Tours.
“Blue Sky Tours offers the largest selection of Hawaiian hotel options on VAX. Adding multi-stop booking capabilities to Blue Sky Tours strengthens agents’ ability to create custom itineraries with one of Hawaii’s top tour operators. This investment demonstrates Blue Sky Tours and VAX’s ongoing commitment to travel agents,” said Becky Capper, Director of Vendor and Partner Development for VAX VacationAccess.
According to the Hawaii Tourism Authority, Hawaii continues to remain one of the top vacation destinations for travelers. Four out of five visitors from the U.S. use travel agents to make their Hawaii reservations.
