Travelsphere and Just You have reaffirmed their commitment to the travel trade with the expansion of the sister brands’ trade team and creation a dedicated contact centre team for agents.
Polly Poulton returns from maternity leave to look after trade partners in the south, while Graham Bishop joins the key account manager team on a permanent basis. Bishop will be responsible for trade partners in the east of England.
Alastair Campbell, Travelsphere and Just You managing director, said the brands were continuing to attract “unprecedented” growth via the travel trade.
“[It] is a direct result of a number of recent changes we have made, namely setting up our dedicated team in our contact centre to support trade, along with our rock solid guarantees on all of our bookings, meaning the travel trade can book with confidence with both Travelsphere and Just You.”
Alongside Poulton and Bishop, the trade team, led by G Touring head of trade sales Sarah Weetman, comprises key account managers Darry Gardener, south west and Wales; John Docherty, Scotland and Northern Ireland; Phil Shipman, north west and the Midlands; and Rachel Mould, north east.
Travelsphere and Just You also have a free, priority phone number meaning that when calls come in from agents, they are answered by a specialist team member who can handled bookings or support agents as required.
“Our trade partners are key to the future of Just You and Travelsphere, hence why we have doubled the size of the team over the last year,” Campbell added.
“Our investment in the team means we are able to really support our trade partners, who in turn will be able to grow their own business.”
