Funway Holidays has announced the integration of TripAdvisor hotel ratings and reviews into its agent-only website, www.funway4agents.co.uk
Available through select tour operators on its agent website, the trusted traveller review platform’s content, reviews and recommendations are now displayed in designated areas of hotel profiles and throughout the booking process, giving agents a tool to leverage during the sales process by providing them real-time user reviews to reference and share with clients at the point-of-sale.
The company's marketing manager, Nick Talbot, said: “Word-of-mouth, especially in the travel space, is an incredibly powerful tool. We look forward to agents leveraging our addition of TripAdvisor to complement their own travel recommendations and expertise, increase bookings and help drive their overall success. TripAdvisor is not the only benefit of booking online with us; every day throughout July, agents that make a package booking are in with a chance to win a ‘MoneyCard Birthday Bonus’ of £5.”
Other highlights of the website include late bookings (up to five days before departure); an extensive number of destinations, including the US, Caribbbean and Mexico; full flexible booking capability; more UK regional connections; the ability to save itineraries online and review at a later date; and automated final payment reminder on reservations booked.
