Build better vacations with Travel Bound’s new Travel Agent Guide 

Travel Bound's new, 192-page free Travel Agent Guide presents a snapshot of Fully Independent Travel (FIT) products. New tabbed sections help agents quickly find each of 123 countries within four regional sections: Asia & Pacific; Europe, the Middle East & Africa; Latin America; and Canada & the USA. Listing key amenities of 12,000 three-, four- and five-star hotels, hundreds of services and includes maps of 35 key cities, the ultimate desktop reference is enormously valuable in helping travel agents build better vacations for their clients.

Travel Bound has published a new version of its popular free Travel Agent Guide with 192 pages of hotels, apartments and villas, sightseeing tours, attractions and activities, plus hundreds of transfer options.

With more information than ever before, the agent-only reference book presents a snapshot of Fully Independent Travel (FIT) products drawn from Travel Bound’s extensive database. New tabbed sections help agents quickly find each of 123 countries within four regional sections: Asia & Pacific; Europe, the Middle East & Africa; Latin America; and Canada & the USA.

Tom Buchberger, Head of Sales for Travel Bound, says: “Our new, easy-to-use Travel Agent Guide is the ultimate desktop reference and the most comprehensive that Travel Bound has ever published. Even though it represents just a fraction of the expansive inventory that agents can find online, we know it is enormously valuable in helping them build better vacations for their clients.”

A showcase of vacation ideas for American and Canadian travellers, the Travel Agent Guide lists the key amenities of 12,000 three-, four- and five-star hotels such as restaurants, wheelchair accessibility, pool and fitness facilities, parking, air conditioning and internet availability. Maps of 35 key cities show the location of recommended hotels and major points of interest, while hundreds of services are also included from airport lounge passes, transfers, excursions and sightseeing tours to tourist passes, attraction tickets, experiences and more.
