The newest booking platform all agents will love

Attention all agents! We’ve got something that will knock your socks off!
International Rail has just launched a brand-spanking-new booking platform called International Transfer – which is used for ground transportation and transfers.
The best bit? It’s just for agents!
It allows you to search, choose and book transfers all over the world in less than 60 seconds and earn a commission on every booking made (okay, the commission is probably the best bit).
It covers 2000 airports as well as hotels, train stations, cruise terminals and private addresses both in Australia and around the world. That’s a whole lotta’ booking power.

But back to the commission. Travel agents who register with International Transfer will receive commissions of five per cent on every booking, as well as the option of adding their own booking fee to the fare.

So, by adding a $15 booking fee to every transfer booked, you could earn more than $3,000 commission per year. Excuse us while we switch career paths.
Managing director Jonathan Hume said that International Rail created this division after important feedback from agents.
“Agents reported that on average over 80 per cent of their clients’ book transfers as part of their holiday. It a critical component as it is often the first experience a customer will have in a new destination.
“They also stressed that transfers can be time consuming and unreliable with fragmented booking options and regular instances of the transfer vehicle not meeting the client. It then gets messy trying to sort out a situation in a foreign country,” he said.
Including transfers on every booking can skyrocket your business overnight via a huge improvement in booking efficiency and earning capacity. Basically, International Transfer is a one stop booking engine.
“As we are already experts in providing often complicated but important travel products such as trains and ferries, we have listened to our customers who have reported that transfers can be frustrating and often unreliable to book,” Hume added.
With International Transfer, agents will benefit from using a reliable and seamless booking system with 24/7 support provided by the American Partner Mozio, while having the security of knowing International Rail has their backs.
The reputable platform is widely used by leading travel companies including American Express, Virtuoso, Booking.com and many more. So get on it, agents.

    5% commission ? We don’t sell anything that has that little commission. No wonder cruises are doing so well.
