Travel Edge has joined the TripArc travel consortium, a move it says will help it “enhance and improve benefits for travel advisors.”
“Travel advisors are the important people in this travel industry, and it’s time that a consortium valued them accordingly,” said Michael Johnson, President of Travel Edge.
“TripArc’s new vision of a consortium, powered by innovative technology, means that advisors will not only continue to get their current level of benefits, but they’ll enjoy increased opportunities to improve revenue, enjoy rewards and recognition, and get the support they need. It puts them in the driver’s seat when it comes to building the future of their business.”
Travel Edge says the move is part of a longer-term transformation it has been spearheading over the past year to help add value to its operations. Key parts of the campaign include:
- Agents can bundle different services – air, hotel, activities, and insurance – into one branded itinerary using Travel Edge’s ADX platform.
- A community of travel advisors that offers opportunities for training and support, as well as a rewards and recognition program.
- Access to the Limitless Digital Luxury Travel Conference, which runs next on 24MAR and 25MAR, 2021. Plans for the first Limitless Live in-person event are currently underway.
TripArc is headed by President Dave Volman, who is also President of travel wholesaler, Travelify since 2017. He also worked as Chief Technology Officer at Travel Edge from 2007 to 2017.
“From greater transparency, to industry-leading contracts and commissions, to the ability to generate higher margins with an easy-to-use platform, to an expansion of our ability to recognize and reward them, we’re excited about delivering so much more to advisors’ businesses,” said Volman.
