Commission boost for peaks from easyJet Holidays
by Laura Gelder
EasyJet Holidays is offering agents an extra 2% commission until January 19, as the travel industry enters its traditional peak booking period.
The commission will apply to holidays with departure dates from April 1, 2021 to March 26, 2022 and will be paid on invoice.
Brad Bennetts, Head of Distribution for easyJet holidays, said: “It’s been a tough year for the travel industry, and we recognise the challenges our trade partners have faced.
"We only launched to trade in August and we’ve been blown away by the response and support we’ve seen so far. We want to support trade agents at a time when it matters most, so we’re delighted to offer an extra 2% commission during the key turn of year period.”
The operator is also offering £100pp discounts on all summer 2021 beach holidays with a stay of seven nights or more.
