Outbound calling for travel companies enables these businesses to connect with new prospects as well as past leads. The purpose of such a service is to continually generate leads, research the market, and maintain strong relations with customers. Use outbound calling to refine and boost your customer service efforts.
Outbound calling is a service offered by virtual phone service providers that support high outgoing call volumes. They refer to calls made by a business to its contacts and clients. Generally, these calls are made by salespeople, appointment setters, customer support teams, and telemarketers.
Outbound calls usually require a customer to complete a task that could either be making a purchase, signing up for a service, or merely setting an appointment for a sales meeting in the future. If your business spends more than 50% of calls reaching out to prospects and new customers, then switching to an outbound calling service can streamline your calling process. And you can do so without having to outsource to an outbound call center. Global Call Forwarding offers a few different outbound calling plans along with business numbers and other web-based communication features and tools.

How Can You Use Outbound Calling?
Outbound calling for travel companies works in two general ways: 1) to bring new customers onboard and 2) to maintain strong relationships with past customers to convert them into returning ones. Here are some businesses in the travel and tourism industry that can use outbound calling:
Increase the visibility of your brand and services offered

Welcome new customers
Follow-up and stay in contact before, during, and after travel

Businesses in the travel and tourism industry can purchase a variety of virtual business numbers. Global Call Forwarding offers toll free, local, and international numbers in more 160 countries. As a travel agency, you most probably depend on international clientele to survive. These virtual numbers will let you connect with contacts and prospects in different areas across the world, irrespective of physical proximity.
Outbound calling makes this possible by giving you the opportunity to override your caller ID to display a local number instead of an unknown international one. For example, in the event you are based in St. Thomas and want to connect with clients in Spain. You can purchase local numbers with specific area codes, for the cities you want to target. Then, you can display those numbers when calling from St. Thomas. This will increase the chances of your call being answered, opening the gate to a possible sale.
