Premier Holidays is offering agents the chance to win a short break to Jersey as well as a place on a fam trip, as it marks the launch of its new short haul brochure.
Travel agents should check their brochure launch packs to see whether they contain a golden ticket to win a bouquet of flowers from the Channel Islands or a two-night B&B break at Jersey’s Radisson Blu Waterfront with return flights from their local airport.
There is also an opportunity join the Premier team on a Channel Islands educational in 2018. Alternatively, agents can visit its trade website to enter. The competition closes on November 15.
Valid until December 2018, the operator’s latest short haul brochure, which includes breaks to Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney, Sark, Herm, Isle of Man, Isles of Scilly and Isle of Wight, features a number of new additions to promote each destination.
The operator has enhanced its island hopping itineraries by increasing the number of experiences on offer, adding a seven-night Guernsey and Sark Discovery from £815; a Guernsey and Herm Highlights package from £599; a Guernsey and Alderney twin-centre Hopper from £689; and a single-centre Alderney break from £389.
It has also introduced a new Isle of Man Discovery package for 2018 to raise the profile of the destination.
To celebrate the brochure launch, the company has released a series of early booking offers to Jersey and Guernsey for 2018 – earlier than ever before. All offers can be booked on Premier’s new Channel Islands online booking system, available on its trade site.
Tactical offers include three nights in Jersey at the Merton from £235pp travelling in April 2018; seven nights at the Norfolk with half board from £549pp for travel in July and August 2018; and three nights at St Pierre Park in Guernsey from £329pp including a free upgrade to a garden view room, for travel from January to March 2018.
Beverley Scarr, short haul general manager at Premier Holidays, said: “The Channel Islands has been selling extremely well for us this year and we’ve already had many advance bookings for next year, which is why we’ve launched a number of great-value offers for 2018 travel as we know people like to book early.
“Being able to offer agents a variety of regional airports to Jersey and Guernsey is a great benefit of the Channel Islands programme and has helped strengthen sales.”
