As part of their efforts to provide business support for their members, TPI has launched the Navigating Out of a Crisis e-Book with practical suggestions and steps for Advisors to follow when selling travel post-pandemic.
Zeina Gedeon, CEO, has this advice for travel advisors:
“Selling travel today is very different than it was pre-pandemic, and as we move out of the pause, it will continue to be different. TPI is confident that the Travel Advisors role will be more critical to the travelling public than ever before! We know that when restrictions start to lift, the floodgates will open and now is the time for you to start planning for the comeback! Our guide is designed with Travel Advisors in mind, outlining ways that you can put plans in place now to help you build back stronger than ever by following three simple activities:
- Connect with your clients to stay top of mind
- Know your value and charge for your time
- Gain Clarity and Focus for your business
Gedeon continues, “As a company, we too are following this framework; TPI has continued to connect with our network with weekly calls, regional meetings and training. Our Virtual Consumer Event series has been well received by our Advisors and their clients, we are seeing record-breaking registration numbers and seeing bookings as a direct result, and of course, our Re•Ignite Sessions with Sandra McLemore are a fantastic free resource we have provided exclusively to our Advisors to enhance their knowledge on ways to connect with their clients and reignite their business.
Over the last ten months, we have taken the time to upgrade, enhance and update our back office, database, and training programs. All the changes we have made are to ensure when travel rebounds, our advisors are well equipped with the tools to be successful and optimize the opportunities ahead.
TPI has seen a positive increase in our recovery trends, starting in November and peaking in December, with levels slowly returning to December and significant growth in 2022 booking vs 2019”
