Tour operator Sceptre Vacations has launched several new agent tools, including a new booking engine, designed to increase travel advisor efficiency and revenue.
Through the new PerfectFIT booking engine, travel advisors can choose between pre-built vacations or custom FIT itineraries for their clients. The pre-built offerings can include flights, itineraries, complete pricing, pictures and maps of hotels, tours, cars, rail options, transfers between cities and hotel transfers. In addition, advisors can choose from over 450 pre-built packages to over 40 countries. Each vacation produces a unique online itinerary for clients, including destination content to excite them about the trip. Advisors also have the option to add a booking fee that can be built into the package price.
For clients in need of a custom itinerary, the new booking engine allows agents to build custom, multi-city vacations. PerfectFIT also offers the flexibility to modify any component at any time, and requotes can be made with the click of a button without having to rebuild any part of the package. Each custom online itinerary comes fully branded to the advisor and their agency so that only their name and phone number appear on the pages. Advisors can easily share the itinerary via e-mail, and they will receive an e-mail alert when the client has viewed the custom itinerary. Once clients give the okay, the package can be converted into a booking with just passenger information and a credit card deposit. As an added bonus, Sceptre is offering a $50 Amazon gift card for any travel advisor’s first completed booking made now through Nov. 15, 2018
In addition, to keep travel top of mind for their clients, Sceptre enables travel advisors to easily share hundreds of professionally written travel articles, ranging from local city guides to pieces such as “How to Deal with Jet Lag” and “The Best Bakeries in Paris.” The articles come complete with high-definition images and are mobile-friendly. When a travel advisor shares an article with their client, the article is automatically branded to that advisor and their agency.
