by Travel Professional News, Aug 29, 2017
Agreement with AdventureLink gives agents access to over 30,000 guided tours on VAX
MILWAUKEE (August 28, 2017) – Trisept Solutions, the leading travel technology company propelling the biggest names in travel, has signed an agreement with AdventureLink to bring guided tours to VAX VacationAccess, the award-winning leisure travel marketplace.
TourFinder, the guided tours booking platform developed by AdventureLink, will be available to travel agents exclusively on VAX starting this fall. With TourFinder, VAX agents have access to book over 30,000 itineraries in all major destinations from the world’s leading tour operators. More than 30 tour providers will be available in the initial launch, including Trafalgar Tours, Insight Vacations, Contiki, G Adventures and Collette Tours.
TourFinder’s powerful search and matching capabilities will allow agents to shop across multiple suppliers to quickly locate the right trip, eliminating time-consuming phone calls when processing bookings manually. Agents will be eligible to earn commissions starting at 12% on all tours.
"Agents will have the first multi-operator online booking, tour content, commission and confirmation platform to sell escorted tours," said Kelly Tompkins, CEO of AdventureLink. "TourFinder is unique in giving agents a powerful toolset to efficiently sell the right tour to the right customer and grow their business."
Richard Launder, president at The Travel Corporation USA, stated, “TourFinder will play a key role in reaching agents, while lowering our contact center costs by selling directly on VAX."
With the addition of TourFinder, VAX will further strengthen its position as the premier leisure travel marketplace. Agent engagement in the VAX marketplace continues to build as over 88,000 qualified agents generate more than 8 million monthly page views and over $1 billion in travel sales annually.
"Bringing TourFinder to VAX further solidifies Trisept’s commitment to travel agents. TourFinder will build VAX’s momentum as more agents continue to engage with more suppliers and advertisers. Trisept will be launching other big improvements to the VAX website in Q4 as part of our $20 million R&D investment,” said John Ische, president of Trisept Solutions.
