Club Med marks New Year with new Tools for Travel Agents
You spoke, they listened.
After the release of results from a survey run by Club Med of almost 500 Australian and New Zealand travel agents, the all-inclusive specialist uncovered beneficial suggestions to improve their pre-existing brochure and tools and has now delivered a brand new brochure to agents, just in time for the peak booking period, the opening of Early Bird sales for the 2018/19 season.
Magazine in aesthetic, detailed guide in functionality, the new brochure promises to offer an agent-friendly explanation of Club Med’s unique premium all-inclusive package and their most loved worldwide resorts to guide both travel agents and their clients effortlessly through the Club Med booking journey.
“We’re extremely excited for travel agents to receive the new brochure as part of our ongoing commitment to the trade, “says Madeleine Clow, General Manager, Club Med Australia and New Zealand. “Club Med is rapidly expanding across the globe and the role of travel agents is more important than ever. We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with agents in both Australia and New Zealand, in rewarding with incentives and providing the tools for easier sales. We know this investment will see major results in our Early Bird sales, opening 31st January, 2018.”
The areas of the brochure which agents will benefit from most include an increase in detail on the all-inclusive package, family services and experiences in each resort, plus the addition of new resorts including Club Med Tomamu, Japan, Club Med Grand Massif Samoens Morillon, France, Club Med
Cefalu Sicily, Italy and updated imagery of completely renovated resorts such as Club Med Bintan Island, Indonesia. There are updated Maps and Grids for easy resort comparison, as well as highlighted must-try experiences in each resort and region offering a chance for clients to understand the cultural highlights of the destination, and a snapshot of well-know/’influential’ guests who have visited to entice agents clients even further.
