New Travel Industry Website Offers Access to More Than 120,00 Travel Agents!

      SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - A new media company called TravelAgent-GPS launched this month with a news, product and destination website and what is to date the largest single database of permission-based travel agents.

The company, a partnership between Tours.com of San Francisco, TravelPromotions.com of Phoenix, AZ, Canadascope.com of Toronto and TravelExperts-GPS.com of Los Angeles, who together have a century of experience in travel industry marketing and publishing, have been able to combine their complementary skills and strengths to create a top resource for active travel agents and a means for suppliers and destination representatives in the industry to reach them.

The website TravelAgent-GPS.com offers a variety of services to the travel community including brochure fulfillment, access to destination content agents can use to refresh their own websites, access to consumers through a travelers forum on TravelExperts-GPS.com, a Resources Page with at-a-glance guides to embassies, CVBs, tours and sightseeing directories, maps, city guides and much more. The site also offers a Deals Page that updates frequently with discounts and incentives. A Story Vault or archives section provides scores of compelling destination features and reviews searched according to their region.

Most compelling, however, is The Monitor, a bi-weekly newsletter published by TravelAgent-GPS.com that goes out to its entire opt-in email database of 125,000 travel agents. It's an informative and entertaining newsletter focusing on state-of-the-industry articles, interviews, reviews and updates all in a quick-read design for easy scanning and future referencing. The articles The Monitor contains are the work of professional journalists possessing decades of experience writing about travel and the travel industry, and offering a perspective of history, knowledge and background relationships to each story.

"We found that travel agents have been excited and receptive to the new site, the Monitor newsletter and services we offer. They want to be kept current, not only with the changes in the industry but with changes in those companies who supply the products they sell. We have been able to become a resource for this," says Maria Polk, President of Tours.com, a partner company.

"Without a doubt this is the single largest, opt-in database of travel agents, with 80 percent of those agents based in North America," adds Polk, "so we are reaching active and working agents that others are not. We know what agents want and we give it to them in easy information bites and handy contact lists. We are a one-click resource and they appreciate this."
