Alongside its new agent booking engine enhancements, Creative Holidays has made it simpler for agents to secure and convert bookings with the introduction of reduced deposit fees.
These fees have been reduced to just $100 per booking, down from $165 per person meaning what would have been a booking fee of $660 for a family of four, is now an easy $100.
James Gaskell, Managing Director, Creative Holidays said: “In line with our commitment to the industry to make booking travel simple, Creative Holidays has undergone a complete review of both functionality and processes to help agents secure and convert as many bookings as possible.
“Our research uncovered that one of the barriers to clients booking is the up-front costs and the fear of losing money if their plans change. As such, we have significantly reduced our deposit and cancellation fees. With these reduced fees agents will now be able to offer reduced risk, at a low cost to the client, helping agents secure more bookings and become even more competitive in the marketplace, particularly against online agencies.”
Giving travellers even greater reason to book immediately, final payment is not required until 14 days prior to travel (depending on supplier terms and conditions).
If a booking is cancelled, the $100 deposit can be applied to other travel products for up to 90 days after the cancellation date. If not used within the three month period, the deposit will be forfeited to Creative Holidays.
