Merchandise revenue ops

Travel related merchandise provides potential for agents to add to their margins, according to the owner of an online luggage and accessories outlet.

 

Megan Singleton, of The Travel Store, says agents are adept at selling anciliaries, insurances, land packages and add ons. Many successful agents also operate their own tour programmes. ‘Offering luggage or in flight comfort items is really just another extension of this.’ Singleton says agents can obtain their own exclsuive discount code, access the Travel Store website, order products at retail price and then claim the agreed commission.

 

‘The Travel Store is New Zealand’s one-stop-online-shop for everything clients need before they travel,’ adds Singleton. ‘We continue to grow the business and add new stock weekly. As well as luggage and accessories, the Travel Collection is an exclusive range of items brought back from my travels. This ranges from cashmere made in Nepal to leather handbags from Italy.’ www.travelstore.co.nz
