In today’s digital age, there are so many tools and resources that can make your life easier as a travel agent. It’s easy to get caught up in the backend of things, but it’s important to not get stuck on the “DIY” approach. Instead, spend that time and energy setting up a software made for travel agents that does exactly what you need. We’re going to dive deep and explore what applications can truly make your client’s experience to keep them coming back for more and more.
Do a Little Self Evaluation
First ask yourself, “How do you feel you look to your travel clients?” Are you using old school methods and could you upgrade to modernize and streamline your entire business?
Put yourself in your clients shoes. Evaluate what it would feel like to receive materials from you and how they’d react to it. Is it organized? Is it portable? Does it make you look like an expert?
If you’re positioned as a luxury boutique agency, you want to have an elevated process that feels exclusive, so it’s important to consider your options.
Our Personal Favorite Software for Travel Agents
Our favorite tool that goes a little above and beyond is Travefy. Travefy specializes in the end-user experience, helping you deliver custom itineraries to your clients. Travefy started as a consumer trip-planning software. It later evolved after realizing how travel agents were leveraging their tools for their own clients.
Travefy is one of those tools that makes you look professional out of the gate and truly sets you apart from the competition. You’re able to add all of your client’s information in including their names, flight information, activities, weather information, and so much more. You can even deliver your proposals in Travefy and then transfer everything over to your client’s actual trip. Though the platform isn’t free, the investment is extremely worth the tools it provides you with.
