Ski.com recently launched a new website for travel agents with online tools and resources that make it easier for agents to quote, book and manage their clients’ ski vacations. The new website, SellMountainVacations.com, features information on more than 120 mountain resorts in North America, Europe and South America, as well as resources for learning more about mountain travel. Agents can register with Ski.com at SellMountainVacations.com to gain access to Ski.com’s inventory of ski-related components, including lodging, lift tickets, flights, ski school and gear rentals. The portal also allows agents to create quotes, track the status of all their quotes and reservations, view commission breakdowns and filter deals by ratings, amenities, locations and unit types.
After agents select a deal, they can send the quote and information to their clients in an e-mail that includes their travel agency logo and contact information. SellMountainVacations.com also offers training materials, including a guide to booking ski vacations, advice on qualifying clients and resort guide videos and PDFs. This month, Ski.com unveiled its new Resort Finder tool, which allows agents to search for resorts based on geographic preferences and their clients’ interests, such as family, budget, ski-in/ski-out lodging options and airport proximity. After choosing their clients’ interest, agents can view a side-by-side comparison with up to three resorts that shows current snow reports, skiable acres and a terrain breakdown.
