Top Five Selling Travel Agents Recognized For 2007 Sales Achievements By Regional Travel Reservation Company, ReserveDirect

ReserveDirect announced today the winners of its second annual TOP5 AGENT awards. These awards are designed to recognize sales and excellence to travel agents that utilize one or all of ReserveDirect’s reservation websites to book travel for their clients throughout the year.

“This past year was yet another growth year for ReserveDirect destinations, including our first full year in Orlando, and we attribute a good portion of that growth to our agent-related sales,” explained John Johnson, President of ReserveDirect. “This marks our second year for this award, and we’re proud to announce the winners and encourage other agents to participate with us.”

The awards are based on a combination of overall sales volume and the number of vacation packages processed.

The winners of the TOP5 AGENT award in 2007 include Gabriele Church is with Information Tickets & Travel located at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. Gabrielle out-produced all agents as the number one overall sales person.

Debbie Boswell is with AAA Missouri and works from the North 40 Drive location in St. Louis, Missouri, and out-produced all AAA agents in the Midwest.

Kathy Holliday is with AAA Missouri and works from the Jefferson City, Missouri location. Holiday ran a close second to Debbie Boswell for the overall AAA sales lead.

Amanda Deke is with AAA Missouri and works from the Independence, Missouri location. Deke and Kathy Holliday were less than $100 of each other in sales totals.

Pat Toney is with AAA Oklahoma and works from the Oklahoma City, Oklahoma location, and Toney similarly out-produced all AAA Oklahoma agents.

“The convenience of real time packaging, the best rates and discounts, and our instant confirmation helped these agents convert more sales to destinations we serve,” Johnson noted. “There simply isn’t a better in-market tool for agents who are researching, quoting and securing reservations for their clients.”

ReserveDirect provides agents with easy-to-use, online reservation systems for a variety of destinations including Branson, Missouri and Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and new in November 2006, Orlando, Florida. The travel agent can use their login to access their account of any of ReserveDirect’s websites, build custom packages for their clients, including a large variety of lodging and ticketed attractions such as theater shows and theme parks— all while earning a commission and other incentives.
