Blue Bay Travel’s Personal Travel Consultants is to host a virtual event to introduce and recruit agents to its new homeworking model.
The Personal Travel Consultants in Partnership with Blue Bay Travel was launched in September 2020 and is a member of The Midcounties Co-operative’s Co-op Travel Consortium.
The remote coffee morning runs all day on Friday (November 12) to give agents a chance to drop in virtually at any time that suits them to find out what the Personal Travel Consultants homeworking division has to offer, as well as to discuss key issues facing the sector.
It is the first in a series of planned introductory events designed to boost awareness of the new brand and increase the number of homeworkers.
Sales manager Abbie Heaton and Blue Bay’s business development manager Tasha Smith will chair the day and are keen to introduce the division’s ‘people first’ model.
The division is promoted as offering “one of the most competitive commission packages” in the industry. It pays agents 50% of the commission they earn on a booking upfront.
Heaton, who is responsible for growing the division of self-employed homeworkers, said: “We’re delighted to be hosting first in a series of agent educationals to introduce our homeworking model.”
She said the division’s competitive offering, which includes no fees for the first three months and allows homeworkers access to Blue Bay’s customer leads, would “help experienced agents take the plunge and have the confidence to give up the second job they might have taken on during the pandemic, and focus on their real passion, which is travel”.
The PTCs has access to a range of about 200 suppliers, including Blue Bay’s own tour operator, which specialises in packages to the Caribbean, Mexico, Far East and Indian Ocean.
