Travel agencies thrive on business from local and international travelers. And so, it is extremely crucial that they make it easy for customers to connect with them. Toll free numbers provide callers a free way to contact a business. These numbers can increase your agency’s incoming call rates, which in turn, will boost your sales.
Toll free numbers are numbers with a distinct three-digit code. US toll free numbers, for example, are 1-800, 888, 877, 866, etc. Calls made to these numbers are charged to the receiver instead of the caller. Large corporations and established businesses usually have a toll free number as their contact number to make it easy for customers to connect with them.
Having toll free numbers for your travel agency will support your incoming call rate. Additionally, international toll free numbers (ITFS) will make it easier for international travelers to connect with you to make bookings and reservations. When planning a trip, visitors are more likely to work with an agency that has a familiar number than one that doesn’t. This is mainly to avoid exorbitant long-distance calling charges. So, getting toll free numbers is in your best interest as a tourism company connecting with customers worldwide.
What Type of Travel and Tourism Services Can Benefit From Toll Free Numbers?
Almost every travel and tourism agency can use toll free numbers and ITFS numbers to connect with potential travelers. Some of these services include:
Travel agents and agencies
Online travel agencies (OTAs)
Tourism companies: guides & tours
Hotels, timeshares, resorts
Transport services: air, road, rail
Educational tourism services
Business travel services
Nature, recreational, and theme parks
You can either purchase a toll free number for all the office locations your company has or for the places you want to target.
Why Should You Buy Toll Free Numbers?
Even though most customers start planning their travel trips on the internet, at some point, they will find the need to contact an agency or a tour to confirm details. Other travelers may start their planning process by calling different agencies to compare trips and prices. If you want them to call your agency, then you need to provide an easy way to do so. The conversion rates for inbound calls are almost 10 times higher than online conversion rates. This means that connecting with your agency through phone is more likely to result in a sale.
