Saga Travel launches new "Saga Experts" online training programme for travel agents

Saga Travel launched their innovative online training programme for trade agents on Thursday 10th December 2015.

Within the first 24 hours 260 agents completed the course. In total 662 agents have registered with 473 agents completing the course in less than a week.

The first 50 agents that completed the course will receive £50 in Love2shop vouchers to spend on themselves in the New Year sales. 

Becky Catterall from Mid Counties Co-op in Uttoxeter recently completed the course and said "The training was very straight forward and easy to read without there being too much copy. The site was very informative and it taught me lots about Saga that I wouldn't have known otherwise. Overall it's a really good online training programme and I have recommended that my colleagues complete this too".

Jeannette Linfoot, managing director for Saga's Tour Operating Division commented,

“We’re overwhelmed by the positive response from trade agents to the launch of our online training programme. Within the first few days there were hundreds of new “Saga Experts” created and they're raring to go. We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the warm welcome we've received from the trade throughout our first year and we have really exciting and ambitious plans for the future. We're very lucky to have such a great internal team that have managed to bring our agency trade sales to life but we want to do more to support and excite the agents that work with us. "

Saga Travel started selling through the trade in October 2014
