‘Travel Gossip provides an excellent social media platform in which to not only engage with others in the industry, but for me to promote, sell and gain good PR to a wide travel audience in just one ‘hit’. Neil Crawford, New Business Manager, Freedom Travel Group
“I have been advising members of the Global Travel Group and Independent Options to join the Travel Gossip Facebook page since it started. It’s an excellent platform for agents and suppliers to share their knowledge, experiences, contacts, training events, incentives and of course, ‘Gossip’ that is really useful on a day to day basis. It has become the voice of the travel industry from a social media viewpoint and it’s great to see those that once watched from the sidelines, absorbing information about destinations, hotels, operators, even pleas for help, eventually start contributing advice and knowledge themselves. Outside of the ‘online world’ the Travel Gossip Road-shows have also been a huge hit and help to develop relationships with agents and suppliers that support the trade even further” Darren Bond, Sales & Business Development Manager, Global Travel Group
We are a small team with a great knowledge of our industry with the help of travel gossip our knowledge swells to superb, after all 7003 heads are better than 3, this help is at its best when struggling to think of niche operators or those small independent operators who may be able to help with the quirky enquiry we've received. Kate Harris, Inspired Travel
Travel Gossip is a great forum not only for Travel Agents but for all type of Industry professional. My personal experience of Travel Gossip is it provides help and support when you require out of hours assistance. This has recently benefited me greatly when I required a Suppliers out of hours on a Sunday evening. The forum response was great and I managed to get my customer issue in resort sorted promptly. I have also seen posts from other agents recommending certain suppliers which have been very informative. This type of product knowledge has been invaluable which has resulted in some great Sales. Thanks Travel Gossip keep up the great work! Laura Featonby, Laura's Travel Village
Since joining this group, I have read no end of great tips, along with phone numbers for that tour op you can never get hold of, a misplaced website address, and some hilarious tales. As well as sharing my own advice on some posts - after 30 years in travel, I still learn something new from other peoples posts, which is fab. There seems to be such a wide range of travel people on there too, who all benefit from each others input. Its certainly helped me, and has become a daily read in my Facebook life. Wendy Donne, Hart Travel (Worldchoice)
Travel Gossip is great for communicating with agents, especially now they’ve hit 7,000 members. It allows us to talk about our product to a huge number of agents who we wouldn’t normally see in stores. “It’s a great way to announce incentives, such as our 20% commission uplift for July, and we had a great response to our competition to win a place on our Vietnam fam trip.” Andrew Turner, Senior Business Development Manager, Intrepid Travel
