lowcostbeds.com SCORES BIG WITH TRAVEL AGENTS
Scottsdale, AZ, Apr. 29, 2013—lowcostbeds.com (formerly lowcostbeds.us) has proven to be a big hit with travel agents since its introduction to the US. More than 2,000 travel agents have registered up since the launch in February, 2013.
According to Clem Walshe, Managing Director for lowcosttravelgroup.com in Ireland, USA and Canada, “We have reached this significant milestone with travel agents because they are finding out the site is so very user friendly, offers great pricing along with super commissions. It’s making the agents look even more attractive to their clients.”
As a result of this enthusiastic response, lowcostbeds has extended the 15 percent commission beyond April 30, 2013, and until further notice. Agents who register and begin using the site will also find promotions to further entice them to book. The current promotion offers agents an opportunity to win an all-inclusive trip for two to the five star BlueBay Grand Esmeralda in Playa del Carmen, Mexico with up to $500 to cover air fare. Two lucky winners have already been selected for the monthly prize drawing, and two more will be drawn after the close of the promotion on April 30. Launching now is a booking incentive where travel agents can earn a $100 gift card for their first 10 prepaid bookings on lowcostbeds.com. To qualify, agents send an email with the confirmation number of all ten fully paid bookings along with the user’s id and name to firstname.lastname@example.org. Email must also contain the name of the person/agency as well as the address where the gift card should be sent. Only one gift card per agent or agency.

Additional overseas buyers have been recruited in order to grow direct contracts in the city, long haul and short haul markets.
