European Waterways Enhances Travel Agent Booking Tools
Features New U.S. Representative, Online Reservations System, and Scores of Colorful 'White Label' Videos on DVD and Online
New York, NY, December 17, 2014 (Newswire.com) - For travel agents and tour operators, selling European Waterways’ unique luxury hotel barge cruising vacations to their clients can be as easy as “point and click,” according to Managing Director Derek Banks. “We have been expanding our sales staff and enhancing our sales tools to ensure all our agents receive timely, superior service on every call or correspondence.”
Among these tools is a secure, password-protected agent website, where a user-friendly reservations system allows them to check availability and pricing, make reservations online for clients, and download sales and marketing material such as brochures and photographs. Many agents have already signed up. New agents can simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and request an account from the sales team. Full details are also available on the Travel Agents area of the website GoBarging.com.
European Waterways also continues to expand its Vimeo channel at http://vimeo.com/album/2303918, where a wide range of short “white label” video clips are available to agents. They can embed these videos on their own websites, use in e-marketing campaigns, or forward to their clients. Professionally produced, these videos are especially powerful in taking viewers on a virtual tour of some of the most popular hotel barge cruises and the beautiful destinations they travel to in France, Holland, Italy and the British Isles.
European Waterways also recently hired Debbie Petermann, former owner of boating holiday company Le Boat, to enhance its sales efforts by establishing a U.S.-based office to respond to travel agent queries. It also brought onboard the experienced Mark Robinson as Sales and Reservations Manager in the U.K. office to lead its sales team and continue its highly personalized service to travel agents.
European Waterways also offers at least a 10% commission on all bookings. For more information, visit www.gobarging.com or call Toll Free 1-877-879-8808.
