As Classic Collection Holidays continues to roll out its new Indian Ocean programme, the operator is inviting agents to join online training this coming Thursday, 19th November, with a chance to win free stays at Indian Ocean properties and a selection of Fortnum and Mason gifts.
The training comes as the operator announces a host of new appointments to bolster its worldwide and complex personalised itinerary expertise. The operator has appointed four new worldwide travel consultants with over 60 years of combined experience in luxury long-haul travel. Jordan Torrilla has taken the role of Product and Purchasing Manager for Africa, Asia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives bringing a further 11 years’ experience to Classic’s long-haul operation.
Si Morris-Green, newly appointed as Agency Sales and Marketing Director said, “Classic is bringing its brand of attentive service and expertise in crafting personalised luxury holidays to the Indian Ocean. Agents will be aware how much our portfolio of long-haul destinations has grown recently, and can be reassured that behind the brochures we’ve been busy appointing the most trusted destination management companies, recruiting experienced long-haul travel consultants and engaging a product team for Africa, Asia, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
“By joining our training session, agents will see that we’re also bringing competitive prices and choice with investment in our reservations system giving us the flexibility to book properties beyond our brochures. In what has been an unprecedented year for the travel trade, when demand returns strongly in 2021, we want agents to be well positioned to reap the benefits of enhanced commission and repeat custom that high value, long-haul bookings can bring.”
Online training is scheduled for 10am on Thursday 19 November and will focus on key destinations including the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Mauritius, presented by Jordan Torrilla and Gemma Lazenby, Classic’s National Account Manager. Classic has produced a promotional video of the region which will be available as a download to assist agents in selling the destinations to customers. Classic’s new “Your World” brochure will be available in both printed and digital version early in 2021.
Agents wishing to register for a place, should email [email protected] or contact their local Classic account manager.
