Just You, the UK leader in holidays and short breaks for single travellers, is now selling its range of short and long haul tours through the trade. The launch took place on 1 June 2009. The company offers escorted touring holidays across the globe exclusively for single travellers who are keen to see the world in the company of like-minded people. Every holiday is accompanied by a tour manager. There are no single supplements and every customer is allocated their own double or twin bedded room.
Just You has guaranteed that the products and pricing available through the trade will be identical to those available via direct sell. Agents will also retain all customer data.
Since Just You was launched as a stand-alone company in 2005, it has grown year on year. In 2008, the company looked after more than 14,000 single holidaymakers. Part of the Kaleidoscope Group, Just You was created in 2000 to meet the demands of Travelsphere customers, looking for holidays catering for single travellers.
“We have launched to the trade to fill the gap in the market for a singles specialist that handles a significant volume of bookings,” says Colin Wilson, Head of Agency Sales. “Agents want to sell products that help them differentiate from the multiples. Just You has the experience and support network to both fully train agents and provide reassurance to consumers in an uncertain travel market.”
A dedicated trade brochure will be launched and commission levels shall be set at comparative rates to other specialist operators.
“Just You is anticipating agent bookings will reach 10 per cent of overall booking within 12 months,” says Colin Wilson. “Training will be key and we will work hard to make this a priority.”
