World Travel Holdings has launched its Travel Safety Program, a training program for its travel advisors that designates them as Travel Safety Verified upon completion.
The program is open to advisors across all World Travel Holdings brands, including CruisesOnly, Cruises.com, CheapCruises.com, CruiseOne, Dream Vacations and Cruises Inc. Nearly 1,000 agents are currently enrolled in the program.
Travel advisors gain verified status once they have completed the first two phases of the training. Those phases cover topics like health and safety best practices, travel protection policies, safety protocols and more. Additional phases, focused on topics such as selling in the current environment, are forthcoming.
The agents also have access to marketing and sales tools as well as special Travel Safety landing pages on their consumer-facing websites.
“There is so much more customers need to know when traveling now, using an experienced agent is crucial,” said Loren Kennedy, senior vice president of customer care and human resources at World Travel Holdings. “This program instills confidence in both our agents and our customers.”
