Five reasons to get training
by Laura Gelder | 12 October 2016
Travel Uni and Equator Learning have merged to create one travel training ‘mega-platform’ with over 80 courses. Your knowledge is what makes you an asset to your customers so if you don’t already do online training, here’s why you really should now.
Anytime, anywhere: The beauty of online training is that you can do it anywhere, as long as you can access the internet. Study from home, at the weekend, even in the middle of the night if you want! Both Travel Uni and Equator’s training courses have been integrated into one platform which is fully responsive, so you can train on your mobile or tablet as well as at your desk.
Lifelong resource: Our brains can only hold so much information so it’s unlikely you’ll remember everything you learn on a course, but your log-in lasts forever. If your client has a difficult question you can access the training programme again as if it’s a library and extract any fact or tip you need to make your sale.
Wisdom comes easily: There’s nothing better than first-hand experience, but no one can visit every destination, stay in every hotel or travel via every cruise or airline – who has the time or the money? Online training programmes are a great way to gain just enough detailed knowledge to clinch a sale. Travel Uni, powered by Equator Learning, has courses covering destinations, tour operators, cruise lines, airlines, rail companies, accommodation, theme parks and attractions and vehicle hire.
Get to grips with GDS: Global Distribution Systems are used by agents all over the world to book flights, hotels and car hire and the benefits include access to competitive pricing and secure online payments. Travel Uni has partnered with GDS Genie to offer online training courses in three of the main GDS systems: Sabre, Amadeus and Galileo. The course includes email, webchat and telephone support along the way so if you get stuck there’s always help at hand.
Constant competitions and incentives: Of course all the suppliers who are the subject of these courses want to get you learning about their product, so there are loads of incentives in place to tempt you. This October you can win a ski holiday for two with Mark Warner, four trips to Abu Dhabi with Jumeriah Hotels and Resorts and a Christmas hamper for your agency from Newmarket Holidays.
