Previously sold directly to the public, Mercury Direct Holidays, owned by Sunspot Tours, is being rolled out to a number of preferred travel agent partners.The company’s national agency sales manager, Richard Greenaway, said: “We did some testing last year with a number of travel agents groups around the UK and because of the very positive sales results we achieved we decided that the time had come to roll out the programme generally to the trade through a number of preferred travel agent partners.
“Since announcing the launch we have already signed up a number of new travel agents to the deal and have secured commercial agreements with one major multiple.”
The company features destinations such as Malta, Cyprus, Algarve, Costa del Sol, The Greek Islands, Madeira, Tenerife, Australia, Bali, Cuba, Kerala, Mauritius, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Agents can now sell holidays at the same prices advertised to the public and earn 10% commission. The operator’s selling points include low prices and value added extras such as free bonus weeks and flexible flights.
