Going into the Summer season, it's the busiest time of the year for travel agents, so why not encourage more visitors through your door with printed giveaways?
A travel agency is a retailer or public service which provides tourism related services to the public on behalf of tour operators and airlines. Even with the increase in the use of the Internet, travel agents are still used as they are one of the easiest ways to book a holiday. Rather than booking everything individually, it's possible to book the whole holiday in one place as a package.
Travel agents have been around for Centuries, with the oldest agency established in 1758. This was largely based on bank services so holidays were only provided to wealthy clients. The travel agency as we know it today was only established in the 19th Century and still exists today. The company existed through selling their own package tours along with representing other tour companies.
If you are working within a travel agency, or own your own independent travel agency then you may need to work on a marketing plan to ensure that your business survives the increase of the Internet as well as against larger travel agencies. You need to have a way to entice customers into your shop, what better way than through printed giveaways?
There are a number of giveaways you could give your customers to try and add value to them booking with you. A very easy product to give away is printed luggage tags. These are available in a choice of colours, which means you can brand your travel agencies colours to your promotional items. Everyone uses a luggage tag, as it's vital to include your details on your suitcase in the event that it goes missing. These are, therefore a cheap and cost-effective way to ensure that your travel agency gets noticed.
Another useful holiday item is a 'travel wallet', we have a number of different versions of these. There is always a lot of paperwork to take care of when you go on holiday, passports, health insurance, flight tickets etc. It is handy to keep these in one particular place to ensure they don't go missing. With every holiday booking, you could give away a leather travel wallet which will ensure everything is kept together. This will add value to the booking, as well as promote your agency at the airport!
