How To Get Repeat Customers

Follow Up

Two pretty female travel agents in business clothes sit across from each other in a lofty meeting room and discuss the benefits of becoming a travel agent and how they can help each other. This image is featured in the Sky Bird Travel & Tours blog, "Becoming A Travel Agent," which describes how anyone can join the travel industry and become an independent agent.

Clients should never feel like their interactions are merely business transactions. It’s crucial to do various check-ins while they’re away and conduct a thorough follow-up when they return home.

Following up after the tour is over also indicates that you actually want your clients to have a fulfilling travel experience. Don’t forget to express your gratitude for their transparency and for speaking with you. Even if they give you criticism, embrace it so that you can improve for the future.

Customize Tours

Customization is the key to an enduring relationship with your clients where they return for more extraordinary adventures. Put yourself in your client’s shoes and imagine their desires, preferences, and dreams.

Take the time to understand their needs and weave together a tapestry of enchanting destinations, immersive activities, and personalized travel plans. By crafting experiences beyond their expectations, you create memories that last a lifetime and establish a bond of trust and loyalty.

Go The Extra Mile

You can surpass the client’s expectations by creating something specifically for them! Get them a mountain view if they love the wilderness, or a late flight if they want to sleep on the plane. Don’t just accept a client’s deposit and cut off communication.

To truly win them over, go above and beyond simple logistics with thoughtful touches. Provide coloring books for the first night in their hotels if they have kids or keep chocolate-covered strawberries for couples. Add special touches depending on the types of customers you are dealing with.
