Which products and services are most in demand from UK holiday companies?
The way people take holidays is changing and UK travel services providers are having to adapt to their customers’ needs.
Joint travel agents and tour operators
In addition to their own package holidays, many travel agencies also offer holidays from other suppliers.
Holiday and tour operators rely on third-party providers to offer clients the best experiences while still maintaining manageable profit margins.
There is the opportunity to connect with other travel service decision makers to offer discounted hotels, flights, experiences, excursions, and so on their tours.
Vacation packages and volume-based deals
Can you offer travel agencies new worldwide travel experiences and deals that they can then pass on to their customers?
Inform the decision makers in travel agencies about luxury travel packages that offer customers a degree of choice when choosing their vacation.
Offer them marketing tools to help them sell your holidays to their clients by sharing positive reviews from previous travellers.
You can give travel agencies a discount for the minimum number of clients they can send on your tours and holidays, and further discounts the more they send.
Experience-based world travel
There are a wide range of holiday options available to clients today that were unimaginable twenty years ago.
From flying to less-visited destination spots to staying at hotels that embody local cultures, people search for adventures to create memories they share with their children and their grandchildren.
Are your vacation packages so unique that you can still count the number of people who have taken them?
Are you aware that more travellers would love your trip if they knew about it?
If so, let UK travel company decision makers know about it by email, phone, and post.
Delivering a website advantage
Clients expect travel agencies to have websites even if they have a retail presence.
Ultimately, travellers expect to find the best deals for the destinations they want to travel to and to select the cheapest flight tickets and the best hotels from an easy-to-use online menu.
User experience is key.
Even if a travel agent does not make the sale straight away when a visitor is on their website, every visit presents an opportunity to subscribe to their email newsletters.
Up to the point of sale, agents can inform clients about the latest deals, changes to flights from their local airport, exciting travel experiences, and new holiday destinations.
Could you help agents sell holiday packages, flights, hotels, and more via their travel website and email newsletters?
Show them how your solution can deliver commercial advantages.
The retail experience inside travel agency branches & offices
The need for retail branches and offices may not be as relevant as it once was due to online travel agency websites and booking platforms.
Clients can still go to travel agent offices for advice on where to travel, information on specific destinations around the world, and to book hotel and flight tickets.
In fact, you might be surprised at how much travellers want on-site experiences.
Retail travel agent shops in the United Kingdom (UK) decreased from 2016 to 2020 – most people expect it to be far more.
Can you help travel professionals offer a better experience at retail locations?
Business travel management
Travel agencies previously offering consumer-focused holidays and tour packages are now entering the business travel management sector.
Some large companies employ in-house travel managers to manage their corporate travel. Others hire outside corporate and business travel management agencies.
Of particular use to business travel management companies are software packages which allow them to:
- book trips,
- monitor and manage individual spend,
- provide travel support,
- book group travel,
- organise ground transportation, and
- negotiate corporate rates within chains of hotels.

With direct marketing, you can control your audience making it easier to ensure the right content gets to the right people.
Can I carry out email marketing campaigns to travel agents with the database?
Email marketing campaigns are cost-effective. Once you’ve obtained a travel agent contact database and a low-cost or no-cost emailing platform, you can send thousands of emails without having to pay for each send.
DMA data shows that email marketing offers a ROI of around £42 for every £1 spent, making it one of the most cost-effective methods of marketing.
Once your B2B email database is uploaded to an email marketing platform, much of the process is automated. Analytics reports measure the performance of your email and help you make adjustments for better results.
We can recommend email marketing platforms when we speak with you.
Can I carry out telemarketing campaigns to travel agents with the database?
You can make telemarketing calls to your target contacts using a travel agent database.
Using B2B telemarketing for direct marketing yields instant results.
Calls are a great way for sales representatives to gauge prospects’ interest and answer questions to quickly qualify holiday company leads.
A good telemarketer turns a call into a two-way dialogue in which the prospect is able to establish trust with the business, and they tailor their offers accordingly.
B2B telemarketing is a personal way to reach your contacts and makes them feel more invested in your company – and people answer calls more than they open marketing emails.
For your peace of mind, our British travel agents B2B telemarketing data is guaranteed to be accurate.
