An extra string to our bow

It is obviously incumbent on Travolution to cover and debate the major developments within the industry, but here’s a little piece of news affecting us for a change!

Travolution has teamed up with sister title Travel Weekly to launch a dedicated page for everything online in the UK’s most widely read travel trade newspaper.

The fortnightly section will feature news, a regular column, information about our Sm@rt Agent award, plus the best bits from the Travolution Blog.

Some would argue that the traditional travel agent is at the sharp end of the massive changes affecting the travel industry.

Our new page in Travel Weekly aims to address some of those issues and also provide agents with a route into the world of Travolution.

News featured on the first Travolution page in Travel Weekly includes “Traditional players fight back” – a report on Manny Fontenla-Nova from Thomas Cook and his forecast on Expedia’s supposed levelling out in terms of growth.

There is also more coverage from the Travolution Summit: “Cendant aims to put the user first” and “Trade told to ‘step up the search’”.
