Sunwing updates Instant Group Quotes, launches agent booking incentive

TORONTO — Sunwing Vacations has unveiled new updates to its Instant Group Quotes, making it easier for travel agents to book groups.

The refreshed Instant Group Quotes application includes new features and updates to existing features that are essential to the group booking experience. These include a modern design and simple navigation during the quoting process, as well as more instant quoting options in one session. 

Agents can also enjoy more convenient features like easy-to-edit, mobile-friendly forms, automatic population of agent details and a Group Sales Representative automatically assigned to each agent’s quote for more efficient service. Plus, tracking quote expiry dates is now easier than ever with new search filters added to an agent’s group quote history.

Complimentary to this, agents will now enjoy a new Group Booking Request form with several valuable features designed to help them save time. Agents can submit the details of their group booking request using the link provided, and the information will feed directly into Sunwing’s new lead management system powered by Salesforce. This will ensure turnaround times for booking confirmations and contract issuances are faster and accurate, and unnecessary back-and-forth communications are eliminated. With this new form, a simple summary of the booking request will be provided for review, and the booking confirmation and contract will be sent to the agent within one business day.

In celebration of Sunwing’s new take on group bookings, the tour operator is offering agents the chance to win one of two 7-night all-inclusive getaways for two to Riu Latino with every booking made by Oct. 31, 2023 using the new Group Booking Request form. Vacation giveaway winners will be selected on Nov. 1, 2023.

To further support agents, webinars with useful tips are now available on Sunwing’s Agent Portal at www.sunwingagents.ca. Agents will learn how to navigate the new Instant Group Quotes updates and new Group Booking Request form, and how to confirm group contracts with e-signatures.
