TRAVEL agents have the chance to earn commissions on their clients’ PCR tests through a new division of Blue Powder Travel.
Called Covid Test, the service allows travel advisors to sign up online and be provided with a booking number for a COVID test appointment which can be easily sent through to clients. Testing can take the form of drive-through clinics, priced from $115 per person, or alternatively travellers can choose the option of home delivery with a fully certified pathology collector kit, ranging from between $145 and $198 per person.
While there are other COVID testing providers on the market, Blue Powder’s founder Michael Cohen said his service caters specifically to the needs of travel agents.
“Our company specialises in testing for travel purposes only, meaning we are focused on ensuring customers and travel agents get the right test at the right time with confidence and reassurance to travel internationally,” Cohen explained.
Agent commissions will be received within two weeks of processing the booking, while the results of the test are also speedy for clients and are provided via email within 24 hours of taking the test.
At this stage the service is only offered in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and regional Victoria, with Blue Powder Travel revealing intentions to expand to Brisbane before the end of the year and other Aussie cities as flights increase in the future.
