Agent-only bed bank, Bedsonline has promoted Rebecca Brett to regional manager for UK and Ireland.

She replaces Tom Bell, who will join G Adventures as its director of sales later this month.

Brett joined Bedsonline in 2017 as strategic account manager for the north and central UK and Ireland.

She will be responsible for growing the firm’s travel agency network and helping drive their growth.

Brett has over 10 years of experience in the travel industry, and previously worked for The River Cruise Line.

Bedsonline is part of Hotelbeds and distributes accommodation, excursions, tickets and transfers to more than 50,000 travel agencies in over 30 countries.

Carlos Feiu, director of retail travel agents at Hotelbeds for Europe said: “As part of last year’s rebranding and launch of Bedsonline’s new value proposition, we’re dedicated to continually improving the customer experience.

“Essential to this is having in place strong teams with unbeatable local knowledge and commitment to the best service possible for our purely travel agent only customer base. I’m very confident that Rebecca has the skills, experience & focus to successfully fulfil this role.”
