Monarch has launched a new trade website, monarchagents.co.uk, to replace its old Cosmos branded website.
The site gives access to the full range of Monarch holidays hotels and flights and allows for searches on multiple airports and destinations to allow comparison on everything from price to departure dates.
A late deals function will also allow agents to target holidays to their customers’ specific needs.
Gary Anslow, Monarch tour operations sales director, said: “The design and functionality of the holiday section of the new site is fundamentally different to our existing site.
“We launched monarchagents.co.uk to a selected number of agents a few weeks ago, with a view to getting ’live’ feedback ahead of a full launch.
“We are delighted with the response we have had so far – the new functionality has been really well received and we have seen a good uplift in sales from those agents using the new site.
“The majority of the holidays we sell are booked online, so it’s critical that we provide agents with all of the options and alternatives they might require in order to present to their customers – we feel the new site does this.”
The group’s existing site, cosmosagents.co.uk, will continue to operate alongside the new one for a short period until it is withdrawn. Agents’ login credentials are the same for both sites.
