Agents have to input all bookings to the “Trade Events and Incentives” section on Thomas Cook World to be entered.

In addition, agent will have the chance to win two return flights to Las Vegas for holidays booked until the end of next month.

All bookings made with value added service upgrades on the Thomas Cook Trade website – the independent agent booking portal introduced last December – qualify if they are emailed to 3rdpartysalesincentives@thomascook.com.

Agent partners have received details of educationals and incentives in a 24-page peaks guide.

Head of trade partnerships, commercial sales and relations, Audrey Brooks-Wiggins, said: “We recognise how important it is for as many of our independent agent partners as possible to experience our destinations and the quality of our exclusive hotel brands.

“By increasing our educational trips by 100% this year we want agents to feel supported through peaks and beyond.”
