ORLANDO — Selling Universal Orlando Resort can’t get any easier now that an all-new travel agent website has just been launched.
UniversalTravelAgents.com, which features an array of custom tools and resources for agents, is designed to help Universal Orlando “continue to grow its partnership with travel agents as the destination continues to grow,” says the company.
The new site includes a brand-new design and user-friendly interface as well as added benefits for travel agents. One of the highlights includes a comprehensive online training program that allows agents to become certified Universal Orlando Resort Specialists. The self-paced online program offers an in-depth look at the destination and fully immerses agents in selling the Universal Orlando vacation experience, including its two theme parks, four (soon-to-be five) on-site hotels and a world-class dining and entertainment complex.
Other benefits of the website include: up-to-date information on Universal Orlando’s ticket, resort and package offerings; digital materials for download, such as the 2016 Destination Reference Guide; customizable sales tools and high-quality marketing materials; and on-going communication and eNewsletters featuring the latest destination announcements. There is also an online ordering system of marketing materials and sales collateral for agents to use in-office or to share with clients.
“Universal Orlando values its long-standing partnership with the travel agent community. When agents expressed a need for a more comprehensive website with real-time package and ticketing information, we listened,” said Frank Belzer, Senior Vice President of Destination Sales, Universal Orlando Resort. “With the range of education and sales tools now available, we are able to better inform and engage with travel agents to help them sell and plan a one-of-a-kind Universal Orlando vacation for their clients.”
To access the website’s many features and benefits, travel agents need to create a complimentary user account by visiting and registering at UniversalTravelAgents.com. Agents who have previously registered with Universal Orlando are requested to re-register.
