PREMIER LAUNCHES ONLINE BOOKING FOR THE CHANNEL ISLANDS

Premier Holidays has launched a new online booking system for the Channel Islands.
 
The tour operator has made online booking available for its key short haul product following interest from the trade. Travel agents now have access to a range of information at their fingertips when booking holidays to Jersey and Guernsey with the operator, making the process easier than ever.
 
The new online booking enables agents to book holiday packages with accommodation and flights, or accommodation only.
 
Agents can check prices and availability, sort results by star rating or price, look for a specific hotel, and see how much commission they are earning via a summary on the screen (which is hidden from clients). The system automatically selects the cheapest available flights, but agents can change flight times to suit their client.
 
Alongside this, agents are also able to include added extras to their booking such as options for half board, baggage on EasyJet flights, transfers, and different excursions and experiences such as afternoon tea.
 
Premier Holidays has created two trade videos giving a step by step guide on how to use the new system. They are available to watch on the operator’s trade website and on social media.
 
Dave Kneale, national sales manager at Premier Holidays, said: “Our new online system will make booking the Channel Islands with Premier Holidays even easier. The online booking is simple and quick to use, and we think it will be well received by the trade.”
 
Agents can earn £10 for every inclusive Channel Islands booking (until August 31; £5 thereafter) made online.
