International Rail Sales Boost By Agents

March 20, 2015 Rail No Comments Email Email

MELBOURNE-based rail specialist, International Rail, has recorded substantial growth during the first quarter of the calendar year through travel agent bookings, with figures showing sales have increased by four times with agents using its services, compared to the same time last year.

International Rail director, Jonathan Hume, announced that the company has signed a number of new preferred agreements with boutique niche retail operators thus offering travel agents unique benefits which have not been available to them in the past.

He added, “Due to our direct access to the European Rail reservation systems, we are able to offer a cheaper fare range and excellent availability to our agents. This, coupled with our personalised local service, has made it much easier for travel agents to make bookings for their clients prior to their departure from Australia. As an added bonus we are able to issue over 70 per cent of our tickets electronically removing the frustrating reliance on courier delivery”.

Agents are growing more aware of the need to have a choice of rail supplier, especially when there are significant differences in fare availability and prices. For many Australians planning European holidays, booking rail passes, tickets and seat reservations are an increasingly important component to their itinerary.

The positive feedback from agents over the last few months has cemented the fact that agents benefit from International Rail being an independent locally owned company that can offer an extensive variety of trains available through the various railway systems around the world.
