INTERNATIONAL RAIL has announced a new partnership with Vietnam Railways allowing them to sell rail journeys within Vietnam through the travel trade.The new service will allow travel trade partners to view schedules and prices online as well as the instant booking of journeys through the company’s call centre, guaranteeing their customers feel secure and confident in their rail bookings and of train travel being part of their Vietnam itinerary.
The company’s chairman, Rod Maton, said: “Rail travel has always been a part of a trip to Vietnam but never before have UK visitors been able to research and book their tickets before they travel through their travel agent or operator. The trains in Vietnam are an unforgettable experience and we urge our travel trade partners to start working with us in offering this great value mode of transport and allowing their customers to see so much more of this fantastic country.
“With the new services available, our travel trade partners can call up any member of the call-centre team and instantly book tickets and find out information, allowing the agent and operators to provide a quality and instant service to their customers. The trade will also benefit from commission rates which will be specifically set with each interested operator or agency.”
