Agents see uptick in cruise bookings during NJT seminar-at-sea

Not Just Travel seminar at sea 2024 agents

Several Not Just Travel agents have secured cruise bookings while onboard Virgin Voyages’ Scarlet Lady for the homeworking agency’s fourth seminar-at-sea

A few days into the seven-night voyage, six consultants made Virgin Voyages bookings for their customers, including Jenny Mills, who bagged her first-ever cruise booking.

Elsewhere, NJT consultant Alex Harding made his first-ever Virgin Voyages booking while on board, saying: “I would never have suggested Virgin Voyages without having this amazing learning experience. My clients are as incredibly excited as I am and I think it will be the first of many.”

Paul Harrison, co-founder of Not Just Travel and its recruitment arm, The Travel Franchise, added: “Our consultants are being wowed, both by the unique Virgin Voyages offer and our award-winning training, and are making numerous bookings for Virgin Voyages as a result.”

The seven-night Irresistible Med sailing departed Barcelona and travelled to Toulon, Marina di Carrara, Ajaccio and Ibiza. During the trip, consultants took part in training led by Harrison and industry experts.

Agents taught techniques to boost cruise sales

They were taught techniques to boost their cruise bookings and NJT brand ambassador Hayley Sparkes shared presenting strategies and tips on how to boost on-screen confidence.

As a result of the agency’s partnership with Virgin Voyages, as well as continued investment in its cruise output, sales with the line have increased 400%.

SJ Walker, director of sales for Virgin Voyages, said: “It’s amazing to see bookings already coming through from those who have experienced Virgin Voyages this week and we are excited that our partnership with Not Just Travel is going from strength to strength.”
