Virgin Holidays spreads a little love to agents by giving them the chance to win a number of romantic gifts when they use the new Vhols4agents website throughout February.
This incentive follows a great first month for Vhols4agents.co.uk; Throughout January seven lucky agents won a DVD Player, plus Natalie Parmenter from Going Places in Chatham won a Virgin holiday of her choice.
Vhols4agents.co.uk is Virgin Holidays dedicated travel agent website, it was launched late December after extensive research into requirements of travel agents wanting to make online bookings. The new website offers essential information beyond that of any brochure and gives travel agents the ability to manage their own bookings without the restrictions of office hours.
Virgin Holidays constantly update the site with essential information and new sections are currently being developed, most recently a dedicated 'Cruise' section has been added giving full details of Virgin Holidays Cruises throughout the USA and the Caribbean. Also launching later this month are UK Domestic flights, this will save time for agents as they will no longer need to call to add on regional flights to new bookings.
Kieran Farragher, General Manager of Sales commented;
"Since the websites launch in December we have received positive feedback and witnessed a large number of agents switching from viewdata to booking online. To show our appreciation we have extended our initial booking incentives so more agents can benefit personally from booking online".
To show their appreciation Virgin Holidays are sending travel agents a packet of Love Heart sweets for every holiday booked using the new website. Plus throughout selected dates in February agents can win a fantastic Valentines treat such as a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a bottle of bubbly or a delicious box of Thornton's chocolates.
Virgin Holidays have also extended the no administration fees offer on vhols4agents.co.uk which will now run until the end of February; selected amendments to bookings made on Vhols4agents including changes to customer details, flight upgrades or alterations to accommodation will incur absolutely no admin fee.
For full details of these great offers agents should log on to www.vhols4agents.co.uk using their existing Viewdata Passwords.
