Longhaul operator Travel 2 has reported a 71.7% growth in traffic to its website compared to this time last year,
The site, www.travel2.com, was launched in August 2010 with a new integrated package holiday search, instant messaging support tool, 13% commissions for holiday bookings and reward scheme T2 Rewards.
Sales and marketing director Gordon McCreadie said: “We are continuing to receive positive feedback from independent agents on how easy the site is to use and the variety of content available to them and we were delighted to win an award for the ‘Most Agent Friendly Website’ in its first year of launch.
“We have many plans in the pipeline for developing the site around new launches this year and in celebration of our 30th birthday in January. Other areas such as car hire, charter flights and ‘no-frills’ carriers integration are also being progressed and we would welcome agent feedback as always as to how we can improve the site further.”
