TRAVELMANAGERS Australia has revealed that a growing number of its personal travel managers (PTMs) are now out-performing their pre-pandemic sales.
Over the six months from July to December 2022, the company’s PTMs have recorded an average sales increase of 52% compared with the same six-month period in 2019.
The achievement comes after multiple record sales months for the brand last year, with Dec seeing an average sales increase per PTM of 86% compared with pre-COVID sales in Dec 2019.
“These results tell a fantastic story on their own, but an even better one when you realise that the Dec figures are part of a longer-running growth trend,” TravelManagers’ Finance & Commercial Manager, Tanyu Cilek, said.
“The number of advisors on track for at least $1 million in sales this financial year has tripled since 2019, while those on track for $1.5 million-plus has doubled.”
Noting sales growth in every segment, including air (up 64%), insurance (up 44%) and land (up 46%), Citek believes the results reflect an increase in the perceived value of the travel agent.
“We are delighted to be entering 2023 in such a strong position and look forward to seeing our PTMs reap the rewards of so much hard work and dedication over the past three years,” he concluded.
