Travel Agent Finder is a new web platform to help with the recovery of the travel industry; allowing Australian Travel Agents to showcase their expertise, passion and knowledge to potential travellers looking for a new travel agent.
With the #ArrivalRevival of the international travel now set for the end of the year, a new platform, Travel Agent Finder, has launched and is inviting agents to get on board.
So what exactly is it?
Travel Agent Finder is a travel agent search engine, with a goal to link travellers with agents by specialist search filters.
Designed to connect Australian travellers to the best travel agent for their exact needs, the platform says it makes the process of finding the right expert simpler, fairer, and more personalised.
The independent site, which is free for travellers to search, and agents to sign up, features a trusted network of quality, accredited Australian travel agents.
Agents first create a profile to showcase their unique skills and credentials.
Holidaymakers can then search the network, compare agent profiles, and select an expert who best suits their travel needs.
Much like a marketplace that enables you to search and filter for products based on preferences, Travel Agent Finder allows travellers to search for an agent, based on expertise, destination knowledge or agent location.
Whether travellers are after an African destination specialist or corporate travel consultant, Travel Agent Finder says it can help them find the expert they need, which could well be you.
Agents with a niche or unique specialisation will benefit most from the platform’s even playing field, search functionality via keyword, destination or travel style and exposure to be matched with those who are interested in what they offer.
What’s more, agents will ultimately book more of what they’re most passionate about and help travellers explore the holidays they love.
Agents will also get reviewed, providing a deep dive into service quality which allows customers to choose the best match with peace of mind.
Successful travel agent, Anna Shannon, hit hard like many by the COVID-19 crisis, created the platform after recognising the need for quality travel agents in a post-pandemic world.
With constantly changing restrictions and uncertainty in the new era of travel, Travel Agent Finder says it seeks to provide holidaymakers with confidence by connecting them with a trusted expert while supporting agents with the potential for a new source of income.
Shannon points to the rising expectations of many travellers as the impetus for the site; “For many travellers, being passed on to the next available agent in-store or on a phone queue can often result in an underwhelming experience.
“With Travel Agent Finder, Australians can connect with a passionate expert that knows their destination, understands their travel style and budget, and can make the process smooth, seamless and enjoyable.
“In the future, I see Travel Agent Finder as an Australian traveller’s first port of call when looking for a specialist or new travel agent,” Shannon explianed.
“For the thousands of talented and passionate travel experts across the country, they have an opportunity to join the site, increase their exposure and share their unique experience and expertise with others – all while helping rebuild an industry that’s been hit hard over the past 18 months,”
