Sorting Out the Deals

As we head into summer—always the biggest travel season—many agents are probably struggling with a data base of reluctant travelers. Thanks to the economy, a large percentage of your clients are either eliminating or downgrading their travel plans.

But don’t give up hope. This may be the richest season for deals in a long time, if not ever. It’s time to be proactive and seek out the right ones for your clients and reach out to them. It may be hard for them to refuse those free extra nights, included meals, spa credits or any of the many other perks being offered—and all at ridiculously affordable rates.

So be sure to check out our Deals section often for all the latest offerings from the biggest and best in the business. (Also be sure to read our upcoming June 8 Deals issue of Travel Agent magazine.) We’re sure you can find an offer your clients can’t refuse.
