Matchmaker, Matchmaker make me a match for the best holiday ever!

Tuesday, 16th February 2016

Screen Shot 2016-02-16 at 2.46.54 PMHoliday Extras has launched its new agent support campaign for 2016 right on target for Valentine’s day. Agents and partners have received emails which have landed in their in-boxes like arrows from cupid’s bow – describing the new Matchmaking scheme that will guide agents when they need to match suitable Holiday Extras products for specific holiday types and budget, family requirements etc.

This, combined with a revamped website, should grow the love and the agents’ commision levels when both agents and the award winning holiday essentials provider work together in harmony.

Also in 2016, and beginning on Valentine’s day, is the new agent of the month which will culminate in two Agents of the Year, one winner for core products such as airport parking, hotels and lounges, and one for holiday insurance products, each winner will be invited to Matchmake their own dream holiday to the tune of £2,000*.

Lindsay Garvey Jones, National Partnerships Manager for Holiday Extras explained: “

We came up with the concept of Matchmaking so that we could help our partners to  design the perfect airport experience for customers. The information that we offer about our products’ suitability will empower agents to recommend our product choices for customers, which will in turn help to create the holiday of a lifetime.

 

“Agents have been sent a gold pack containing the new campaign along with Agent of the Month details – £50 worth of restaurant vouchers to have a romantic date each month – and there will be two very deserving Agents of the Year to be announced at the end of 2016.”
