Intrepid announces plan ahead of July 24’s virtual event

The UK’s first National Travel Agent Day will be hosted on Intrepid’s agent Facebook page and Travel Gossip.

Intrepid, the small group tour operator behind the initiative, looked to mimic similar days already in place in America and Australia. It will be held on July 24.

Trade bodies, travel agents, tour operators and airlines are expected to take part in the virtual event, Intrepid said.

Zina Bencheikh, Intrepid Travel’s EMEA managing director, said: “The response to National Travel Agent Day from across the industry has been fantastic so far. We have a host of exciting plans for Friday and can’t wait to recognise and reward agents for the essential role they play in our industry.”

In the afternoon will be quizzes, competitions and awards. Ahead of the day, Intrepid Travel is asking agents to share ‘above and beyond’ stories of their colleagues who went the extra mile for clients during the Covid-19 crisis.  Nominees will have the chance to win an Intrepid trip for two to Morocco.  Entries should be sent to UKPGM@intrepidtravel.com

Visit Intrepid’s National Travel Agent Day site for the full schedule. To support National Travel Agent Day, share your social updates using the hashtag #NTADUK on July 24.
