Intrepid Travel launches UK's first National Travel Agent Day

Intrepid Travel is encouraging industry partners and customers to support agents as it launches the first National Travel Agent Day UK.

Set to take place annually on the last Friday of the UK summer school term, just before the summer holiday mass exodus typically begins, this year Intrepid is asking those supporting National Travel Agent Day UK to share the #NTADUK hashtag on the inaugural event, which will take place on Friday July 24.

Intrepid Travel managing director for EMEA Zina Bencheikh said: "At Intrepid, we feel now more than ever is the time to get behind the travel agent community and show our appreciation for everything they do, especially the difficult challenges Covid-19 has presented.

"We want to officially recognise agents on National Travel Agent Day UK for their hard efforts as frontline workers, dealing with this crisis firsthand and their important role in helping to keep the UK travel industry afloat.

"With Covid-19 hitting the industry hard in recent months and government guidelines rapidly changing, we understand the difficulties many agents have experienced, such as dealing with frustrated and confused customers.

"National Travel Agent Day UK is a chance for all those connected to our industry, including travel organisations, airlines, operators, travel journalists and customers themselves, to take a moment to thank agents for their patience and resilience in this most challenging of times."

This year, as part of the launch Intrepid will host an industry-wide Virtual Appreciation Event on launch day, connecting agents and partners online to mark the occasion.
