A new agent only area has been developed and launched on the popular New Zealand Self Drive Tours Ltd website http://www.newzealandselfdrivetours.co.nz. Once an agent has registered and their profile set up (24 hrs usually) they can search the large database of over 240 self drive touring options, add their clients details, get a guaranteed net price for the tour and produce a high quality itinerary with their own company logo and personalised to the client. Pricing can be set in NZ$, AU$, US$, CA$, GBP and more.
New Zealand Self Drive Tours Ltd (part of the New Zealand Fine Touring group) developed the new feature after spotting an opportunity in the market place. “We were getting enquiries from many agents through our retail site asking if we dealt with agents. Of course the answer was yes but each response was a little ad hoc and manipulating the retail system to suit the agent wasn’t ideal" said David Kettle, managing director at New Zealand Fine Touring.
“The internet is a fantastic tool for the travel industry but sometimes we forget that the customer (which includes travel agents) who use the internet expect instant gratification from their searches and requests for information. The new agent area does that 24/7. An agent anywhere in the world can access our large range of tours, generate a personalised itinerary for their client, obtain a guaranteed net price in the currency they prefer all in less than a few minutes. The guarantee on price also extends to availability. If a specific item isn’t available once a booking is requested our team here will replace with equivalent or better at no additional cost. The whole process is designed to give the agent confidence to be able to sell the product and be easy and simple to use. We do of course also offer a customised service and any assistance the agent needs through the usual channels.”
David also said that an increasing number of travel brokers or independent agents were seeking access to product and dealing with a company such as New Zealand Self Drive Tours Ltd means that they don’t have to deal with a large number of suppliers. Their clients also receive superb in country support so they can rest easy their valued customers are well looked after.
“Over time we have selected product that we can confidently sell and we continue to monitor this closely. The company has strict quality processes as well as being Qualmark endorsed and full members of the Tourism Export Council” David explained. “Selling travel is a challenging process at the best of times so our aim was to make this as easy as possible for anyone to use with confidence.”
