Premier unveils online Channel Islands bookings

Premier Holidays has launched an online booking system for travel agents selling the Channel Islands.

The tour operator said it has made online booking available for its key short-haul product following interest from the trade.

The new system enables agents to book Jersey and Guernsey (pictured) holiday packages with accommodation and flights, or accommodation only.

Agents can check prices and availability, sort results by star rating or price, look for a specific hotel, and see how much commission they are earning via a summary on the screen – which is hidden from clients.

The system automatically selects the cheapest available flights, but agents can change flight times to suit their client.

Agents can include extras such as options for half-board, baggage on easyJet flights, transfers, and excursions and experiences.

Premier Holidays has created two videos giving a step-by-step guide on using the new system.

Dave Kneale, national sales manager at Premier Holidays, said: “Our new online system will make booking the Channel Islands with Premier Holidays even easier. The online booking is simple and quick to use, and we think it will be well received by the trade.”
