Former Freedom Flights and Kiss Flights trade sales representative Abbey Thomas has joined Affordable Car Hire.
She has been appointed sales manager in the expanding Affordable team, reporting into new managing director (designate), Kevin Hall.
Thomas will focus on trade relations, with targets to expand the number of independent agents working with Affordable Car Hire and to further develop existing relationships with agents.
She said: “Agents will now have a point of contact at Affordable Car Hire, a friendly voice at the end of the phone, and someone to help them maximise the earning opportunities car hire offers.
“There are fewer and fewer companies with sales teams on the road now and I believe that independent agents like to support independently owned companies.
“I’ll be out and about, talking to those agents very soon.”
Angela Day, managing director of Affordable Car Hire, added: “We are very excited that Abbey has joined the Affordable team.
“We are fully committed both to supporting our existing agents and to bringing new agents on board, and Abbey brings us a wealth of experience and all the right skills to succeed in this challenge.’
