TDC Sales Academy 2018 Open to Home-Based Agents

Transat Distribution Canada (TDC) is looking to grow its Agent@home program and is offering an added incentive to agents who join the home-based agency network.

Travel agents and home-based agents who want to move over to TDC’s Agent@Home program can also sign up for the TDC Sales Academy, to be held April 27-May 4, 2018 at the all- inclusive Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Registration for the Academy opens in mid-November.

Agents will receive intensive sales training from special guest speaker Michael Vickers, along with dedicated training on Sun Destinations, Europe, Cruise and Luxury products from more than 20 preferred partners and professional coaches.

The format includes hands-on business building workshops, site inspections of Transat’s key hotels and resorts and special events. For home-based agents, it is an opportunity to network with other TDC colleagues as well as with top suppliers.

Susan Bowman, executive vice-president, Marketing, TDC said the 2018 Sales Academy will be a great way for home-based agents joining the TDC network to kick-start their experience.

“They will have access to state-of-the-art training from professional coaches and our top suppliers,” she said. “At TDC, we know that education is an integral part of our travel professional’s success. Understanding all of our products thoroughly enables them to better serve their customers and exceed their expectations.

“The TDC Agent@home program offers unparalleled advantages for agents looking to go home-based including the exclusive ability to offer and redeem Air Miles Reward Miles, as well as best-in-class marketing and systems support.”
