Newmarket Holidays ready to support agents

Newmarket Holidays is offering agents a £20 Love2Shop voucher for all new UK & Ireland bookings, along with a 15% discount on offer to customers for all bookings made by 5th May 2021. This is part of the Destinations in the Spotlight series recently launched by the operator.

The company has reported proportional growth in trade sales across its business as more customers seek the expertise and reassurance of booking through an agent. As agencies begin to open their doors again and make plans to kick start their business, Newmarket is determined to support that return and the company believes this is an ideal opportunity to bring all travel businesses even closer together.

Richard Forde, Head of Trade Sales comments: “Our trade partners have been brilliant throughout the pandemic with their unwavering support and as demand is beginning to return, we felt it was a good opportunity to give customers and agents alike an even greater incentive to book one of our tours.

“Most travel businesses – agencies and operators – have had colleagues on furlough during the pandemic. We understand the return to work can be daunting and product knowledge may need an update and refresh! We won’t be out on the road just yet, as we feel it is too early to ask our team to do that and feedback from our trade partners is that it is too soon for most. However, as always, we are here to support in any way we can, with marketing material and product training via webinars, video conferencing and sometimes, the old fashioned telephone call.”

Newmarket’s team of Account Managers will be back out on the road visiting partners when the company feels circumstances allow. Forde said; “We can’t wait to get out again and do what we enjoy most – seeing our partners and selling holidays!”

Newmarket’s Destinations in the Spotlight series offers 15% off all UK and Ireland holidays, running concurrently with a campaign with 10% off all Touring and River Cruise Holidays.
