Jet2holidays has strengthened its commitment to independent travel agents in Birmingham and across the Midlands, by appointing Vicky Edwards as a Trade Sales Executive to work with agency partners across the region.

Vicky, 28, from Oswestry in Shropshire, will work with independent travel agents to help them market, promote and sell package holidays so that they can grow their businesses. The appointment means that we now have 18 people in our trade team, which is dedicated to working with independent travel agents to help them increase sales. Vicky will report into Regional Sales Manager, Simon Marshall.

Vicky brings a wealth of experience to the role, having spent the last four years at independent travel agency, Polka Dot Travel, where her most recent role was Branch Manager in the company’s Shrewsbury store.

This comes on the back of a number of recent appointments to the Jet2holidays Trade Team, with Sasha Stokeli and Jason Cullen also joining as Trade Sales Executives, and Oliver Sherwood joining as a Trade Sales Analyst.

At our recent annual VIP Conference for Independent Travel Agents, we also announced a number of new initiatives designed to strengthen our partnership approach to working with agents, including the launch of ‘Specialist Jet2holidays Travel Agents’, a brand-new programme that offers independent travel agents even more scope and opportunity to grow their businesses. This gives agents access to a range of innovative new ideas such as Jet2holidays Booking Pods, flexible eye-catching pods which can be integrated into stores, as well as joint marketing & branding activity, and a bespoke training programme.

This is the latest example of our commitment to investing in independent travel agency partners, which has seen us win a host of awards voted for by agents and by the travel industry.

Vicky Edwards, Trade Sales Executive at Jet2holidays said: “I’m very excited to be joining the Jet2holidays Trade Team and am looking forward to helping independent travel agents take advantage of all the opportunities that are out there to drive more sales and win more business.”

Alan Cross, Head of Trade at Jet2holidays said: “I’m delighted to welcome Vicky to our award-winning team, as she brings the experience, skill and passion to help our independent travel agency partners take their businesses to the next level. Independent travel agents and their customers across Birmingham and the Midlands are responding fantastically well to our real package holidays and our unique partnership approach, and this appointment shows how dedicated we are to strengthening that.”
