Previously sold directly to the public,l Mercury Direct Holidays owned by Sunspot Tours is now being rolled out to a number of preferred travel agent partners.“We did some testing last year with a number of travel agents groups around the UK” said Richard Greenaway, national agency sales manager, “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 available 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.”
Mercury Direct Holidays features destinations such as Malta, Cyprus, Algarve, Costa del Sol, The Greek Islands, Madeira, Tenerife, Australia, Bali, Cuba, Kerala, Mauritius, Sri Lanka and Thailand.
Travel agents can now sell a Mercury Direct Holiday at the same prices advertised to the public and earn themselves 10% commission.
Mercury Direct and Sunspot Tours have also recently employed seven Field Sales Managers who will shortly be visiting travel agents around the UK signing them up to the Mercury Direct agreement.
