Adventure travel specialist Intrepid Travel has unveiled a dedicated web site for North American travel agents. Found at http://www.intrepidagent.com , the site is multi-functional and will not only track individual agent’s sales, but offer product quizzes — complete with prizes — free downloadable marketing resources, details on new promotions (such as the Aeroplan promotion where customers can earn 500 Aeroplan Miles on bookings over $1,000), and provide a link to each agent’s BDM.
Plus, agents will earn fun awards for booking with Intrepid. Cumulative annual sales under $5,000 (Bronze level) will earn a handy little phone detangler. Reach the Silver level ($5,000 mark) and get an Intrepid water bottle; Gold status ($10,000) earns a nifty set of packing cubes; while sales hitting $15,000 will earn agents a solar charger. And at the top level of $25,000, agents receive a flip camcorder.
“Though we’ve been present in the North American market for only 18 months, we’re so pleased to see the support we’re getting from our agents,” says Steven Larkin president, North America for Intrepid. “It’s clear they love the diversity of product we have and our belief in sustainable travel – and we love working with them.” Intrepid offers more than 650 itineraries to over 120 countries, with durations from as short as a few hours to as long as six months.
