WhatAvanti Destinations, an FIT tour operator that sells exclusively through travel advisors, recently unveiled a new website for custom independent and custom group travel. Through the site, agents can create, review and modify bookings; check confirmation status; make payments; and view commission.
Why It MattersAlthough Avanti also has a consumer website for travelers to view basic information, only accredited advisors have access to Avanti’s new portal, pricing structure and detailed product information. The website reaffirms the company’s commitment to working exclusively with the trade.
Fast Facts- Avanti’s consumer-facing site can be found at www.avantidestinations.com. The password-protected travel agent portal can be found at book.avantidestinations.com.
- The website also features a chat function and step-by-step tutorial and training videos to help agents learn how to use the new site efficiently.
What They Are Saying“The new site reaffirms Avanti’s commitment to selling exclusively through our travel agent partners, not direct to consumers,” said Mark Grundy, Chief Operating Officer for Avanti.
“While travel agents’ clients can look at basic information about suggested itineraries, types of products, and destinations on the consumer-facing site, they cannot see pricing or detailed product information, such as our hotel selection. Only accredited agents can register for and access the password-protected agent portal, which includes all product information, as well as a dashboard for each agent, with all their bookings, commissions, and record of all communications with our company.”
