The trips offer independent agents the opportunity to learn about the latest product and increase their destination knowledge.
In September, Jet2holidays will host four FAM Trips, taking approximately 40 independent travel agents to Palma (Majorca), Malaga, Fuerteventura and a fourth destination yet to be disclosed.
This will be followed by another four FAM Trips in October to Corfu, Antalya and Bodrum and a destination yet to be revealed and one in November to Paphos.
The tour operator has already hosted seven FAMS this year, including three in April to Majorca, Tenerife and Benidorm, two in May to Antalya and Rhodes, one in June to Menorca and its most recent one to Portugal last week.
From July 12-14, Jet2 took eight independent travel agents from Northern Ireland to the Algarve for a two-night trip, staying at the 3HB Guarana Hotel – which will host Jet2holidays’ Annual VIP Conference for independent travel agents in November this year. As part of the trip, the group had a walking tour of Faro city, enjoyed a boat excursion in Albufeira, and visited various Jet2holidays’ properties.
Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays, said: “We are very pleased to be announcing a further nine FAM Trips for our independent travel agents in 2022. This announcement means we will be hosting a total of 16 FAM Trips this year, which is a real demonstration of how we have continued to invest in our partnership approach.
“As well as strengthening our relationships with our independent travel agency partners, these trips are also the ideal opportunity to showcase our award-winning VIP customer experience and huge range of destinations on offer. With such strong demand for our package holidays, there is no better time for independent travel agents to get up to speed with our product and our destinations and bolster their sales. We are very excited for our upcoming FAM Trips and look forward to spending valuable time with our independent travel agents in destination.”
