Jet2holidays has underlined its commitment to independent travel agents, with several major announcements during our biggest ever annual VIP conference for independent travel agents. We also celebrated top performing agents at a prestigious gala dinner hosted by Head of Trade Alan Cross and singer Peter Andre.

We took more than 300 top performing agents and delegates to the AR Diamante Beach & Spa in Calpe, Costa Blanca, where we outlined our vision for the future, launched a brand new product targeted at millennials called VIBE by Jet2holidays, and shared plans on how we plan to further strengthen our partnership approach to working with agents.

We revealed significant changes to our award-winning trade website, with independent travel agents able to search for package holidays to multiple destinations from different UK airports on Jet2holidays’ trade site. Other updates to the trade site include filtering searches by Jet2holidays’ brands, such as VIBE by Jet2holidays and Jet2CityBreaks.

To support independent travel agents during the busy January booking season, we also announced that we will be recruiting almost 20 promotional executives between January and March, doubling the size of our trade team and adding significant resource to help agents boost sales during a key sales period.

The conference also included a prestigious themed gala dinner where agents scooped awards for their tremendous achievements in helping drive awareness and sales of Jet2holidays over the past year.

On top of that, the third edition of the popular Jet2holidays’ Got Talent, held at The Benidorm Palace, was won by Cara Murphy of Terra Travel in Northern Ireland for the second year running.
