Contiki Vacations is launching a slate of new travel agent offerings, including a revamped website, expanded sales team and the "Every Agent Counts" incentive program.
The new incentive program, which runs through April 15, is aimed at helping travel agents tap the millennial travel market.
Any travel agent who registers for the program by March 15 and makes a Contiki booking between February 18 and April 15 will be eligible to receive a cash incentive of $50 for every Contiki passenger booked with deposit – paid directly to the travel agent at the end of the program in one lump sum.
Contiki also recently expanded its sales team, known as “Contiki Regional Sales Executives.” The Regional Sales Executives will be visiting offices and sharing the incentive program with agents.
“Travel agents are an integral part of Contiki’s growth strategy and they are uniquely situated to influence their customers’ purchasing decision,” said Melissa da Silva, president of Contiki Vacations. “We don’t want to be another supplier with a brochure on the shelf – we want to be an ally working with agents to get the most from the youth market.”
This past year, the youth travel brand updated their agent website (www.contiki.com/agents), offering access to downloadable flyers, sales trainings, and other tips and tricks to help agents place their young clients on a Contiki – including the ability to make their bookings directly through the site. The site is also slated to undergo another major update in the coming year. In addition, Contiki continues to offer travel agents the same promotional deals that clients who book directly with Contiki get.
