(Travel Division), a leading national and local provider of integrated business communications and Superbreak
, the leading UK short breaks provider, have announced the winner of their Traveleye holiday promotion for travel agents, designed to promote the speed at which holidays can be booked through websites on the selling system.
Winning agent, Rebecca Chambers from Bowen Travel in the West Midlands, will soon be off on a weekend break for two at a four-star London hotel, after completing a test booking in the fewest possible keystrokes.
NTL Business (Travel Division), part of NTL Business and formerly X-TANT, provides the leisure travel industry’s leading bookings network and the agency selling system Traveleye.
Superbreak is one of several operators including Gold Medal, Hertz and Holiday Autos to offer web bookings though Traveleye, which also allows agents to make bookings though the reservation systems of over 250 tour operators and other travel providers.
Said Rebecca: “I am delighted to win the competition - it’s the first time I have won anything like this. I am planning to take my break at the end of November so I can tour London’s shops to do my Christmas shopping.
“I use Superbreak’s website as much as possible to find holidays for our customers, as it’s fast and easy to use. Ideally we would like to do more of our bookings on the web so that we can involve customers in an even more exciting bookings process.”
Said NTL Business (Travel Division)‘s Travel Product Manager Howard Tinker: “Booking on the web though Traveleye is easy, as this competition has demonstrated. Our promotion has shown that agents want to book using websites, providing they can access them through a system that takes care of all their other needs.
“By offering bookings though both tour operators’ reservation systems and operator’s websites, Traveleye offers agents the ability to complete a booking in which ever way suits them.”
Traveleye is the leading integrated agency selling system with over 5500 agency users. The system has revolutionised the way holidays are sold by delivering reservations, information and management functionality all at the click of a mouse.
