JOHANNESBURG, August 4, 2015
Europe and North American specialist tour operator, United Europe, has launched a new online booking platform designed to help Southern African travel agents access accommodation, transfers, attractions, rail and even sports and events package at the click of a button.
The new user-friendly UE Agents system, which is available to all travel agents who register with United Europe, offers access to thousands of international products at competitive prices, giving travel agents the power to quote their customers immediately and close the sale then and there.
The UE Agents system empowers travel agents to quote their client on the spot, says United Europe md Mark Buck. “Our system is user-friendly, has incredible depth of travel content and offers products that cannot be sourced on any other platform in South Africa, such as rail, sports tours, attractions and events packages.
“So whether your client is headed to the Chelsea Flower Show or the Edinburgh Tattoo, you can find the right package for them or dynamically package your own, incorporating all the components on offer on the UE Agents system, without ever having to pick up the phone!”
Agents, who have already signed up and are using the new UE Agents system enthusiastically, cite the ease of use and advanced functionality as clear benefits for their agency and clients.
“It’s nice that I can choose a package and upgrade the different hotels in specific cities as well as the train ticket to a better class,” says Deon Jonker, Flight Specials consultant, who adds that the new UE Agents system is great for “booking hotels, transfers and tours separately”.
The process to quote or book is simple and straight forward, and the rates are very competitive, adds Jaune Shrives, Flight Centre Durban North. “You can find anything from Japan to Las Vegas helicopter trips!”
Megan Prinsloo, Flight Centre Kimberley, meanwhile likes the ability to quote her clients instantly. “Especially those clients who want 10 000 options and cannot make up their mind,” she says.
