Benefits of Booking with Sky Bird
The WINGS Booking Engine
Sky Bird has its very own state-of-the-art travel technology, the WINGS Booking Engine — a multi-featured reservation and administration system. WINGS offers solutions by giving travel agents the top resources available to run their businesses profitably. The platform enables agents to engage with their customers and manage their businesses more effectively and plan every aspect of their client’s trips, including the insurance.
From booking affordable flights to budget hotels and car rentals, agents can register for WINGS free of cost and get access to benefits like 24/7 customer support, an organized dashboard, higher commissions for agents, and collaboration options.
Support for New Agents
Sky Bird offers new travel agents a variety of tools, such as personalized client itineraries, group travel arrangements, student savings on international tickets, travel insurance, and more.
Travel agencies who have been in business for less than a year can register for quarterly live webinars that are tailored only for them. One can learn about WINGS during this hour and provide their company a considerable advantage. They can inquire about anything during the Q&A session at the end of the webinar. Additionally, Sky Bird presents 2 live WINGS webinars on the second Thursday of each month — an added advantage for novice travel agents looking to expand their skills.
Sky Bird has a dedicated team specialized in assisting travel agents plan group tours for their clients. The Groups Department at Sky Bird makes it easier to book large travel groups (10+ passengers) so that agents may earn significant commissions without having to put in a lot of work.
Some of the advantages of booking group tours with Sky Bird are:
- Locked-in Rates: Once tickets are purchased, prices won’t fluctuate, allowing travelers to benefit from the initial low cost and travel agents to enjoy the commission they deserve.
- Purchasing Power: Sky Bird’s Purchasing Power ranks them first among airlines, securing the agent’s reservation.
- Itinerary Assistance: The Groups Department helps design vacations that the entire group will enjoy and makes sure that everyone in the group travels together.
