More awards for Jetset
THE management and staff of Jetset Leongatha have cemented themselves at the top.
At a recent Jetset Travelworld Network conference at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne, the team won three awards.
“It’s very exciting,” said owner/manager Jill Carmody.
“We’ve been pretty consistent with winning awards from our suppliers, but I was quite stunned to receive three.”
The awards were presented by Cox and Kings Australia, Sunlover Holidays and Allianz Insurance recognising Jetset Leongatha as the top sales achiever for Victoria and Tasmania. A nomination was also made for the Australian Pacific Touring (APT) award.
“That’s not bad for a small agency!” Jill said.
Jetset Leongatha might be small, but it’s always very busy.
Jill puts the success of the independent agency down to a number of things including the support and buying power of the Jetset brand.
“We have received untold personal development and professional training for ourselves as owner managers and our staff as consultants.
“Our focus is on service.”
Jill said the Allianz award recognised Jetset Leongatha’s belief in insurance and in ensuring clients have the right coverage for their destination.
Taking responsibility for bookings and ensuring everything runs smoothly is the reason people go to a travel agent.
“I believe we are very professional and part of that is to see that everything is taken care of.”
Cox and Kings Australia owns Tempo Holidays which Jetset Leongatha uses for group tours to Europe and the Middle East and for independent travellers throughout Europe.
Cox and Kings also has its own brand, which Jetset Leongatha uses for small groups and private journeys in Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Central Asia and Europe.
Another Cox and Kings brand is Bentours offering travel to Scandanavia and Russia and Ezeego1 for online accommodation.
So, the Jetset top sales honour covers a broad range of travel destinations and options.
Jill said Sunlover used to be the agency’s main supplier for Queensland.
“But they have now expanded to other states and cover Australia wide. They’re a great company and they have great specials for our clients, with good availability of accommodation, tours and transfers.”
