Six New Travel Counsellors Visit Bolton Head Office

Six New Travel Counsellors Visit Bolton Head Office

Travel Counsellors Ireland has recently experienced a surge in recruitment with six new recruits joining this summer, bringing the total number of agents up to a record high of 52 in the Republic of Ireland, with another 32 in Northern Ireland. The company believes this is testament to the strength of its proposition in Ireland because the reasons to join are now almost endless and individual – and Travel Counsellors Ireland is reporting an average increase in earnings of 15%.

The six new recruits are from five different counties: Laura Beirne-Gormley is from Killybegs, Co Donegal; Yvonne Cassidy from Stepaside, Co Dublin; Fares Hatoum, Dublin City; Susan Hegarty, Carlow Town; Peter McKiernan, Greystones, Co Wicklow; and Lisa Nahedh, Longwood, Co Meath.

They all report that being able to spend time with individual customers, as well as the fantastic technology, support and training on offer at Travel Counsellors were the deciding factors for them in taking the leap to join.

Susan Hegarty, who previously worked for a large travel agency, has been impressed by the technology on offer: “I had read lots of great stuff about Travel Counsellors but nothing prepared me for the impressive technology and support that is now at my fingertips. They are leaps and bounds ahead of anyone else in the industry. One of the things I love is the list of weekly offers that we receive from head office to send out to our own customers. I then get a fabulous report that can tell me who has opened the email, which is incredibly useful and has really helped me with sales and further marketing.”

Peter McKiernan, who has also recently joined having spent many years with a large travel agency, added: “There are so many reasons why I chose Travel Counsellors and why I have been impressed. I know that I am going to reignite my job satisfaction. I have also been struck with how professional and efficient everything is.”

Yvonne Cassidy joined the company on its new re-training programme that facilitates people who have been out of the industry but who want to get back into travel. She has been most impressed by all the guides and information on-hand for her customers: “It takes me less than a minute to find things such as restaurant recommendations or places to visit on the intranet. My customers have been bowled over by it and it has given me a real edge when competing for business with other agents and the Internet.”

Although the six new Travel Counsellors live in different parts of Ireland, they intend to arrange regular catch-ups, and can’t wait to meet more members of the TC family – over video calls and in person at the many events that the company holds.
