Newsletter for Travel Agents
June 2011 Newsflash
Thalpos Dear Agents,
Many of you have been sending clients to Greece and the Greek islands for many years.

You might be better acquainted with the most popular destinations and know little about the islands in the Sporades chain, namely Skiathos, Skopelos and Alonissos.
We offer our co-operation so you can offer to your clients a different product than the usual hotel or apartment found in databases of all your competitors…

As of 1992 we have been specializing in villa rental, most with private pools ranging from traditional cottages to luxury villas with modern facilities. We present to the traveller something different than the usual hotel room offered by most travel agents.

We offer 10%-12% commission which is well above the income generated for you when compared to standard hotel rates and commissions.

A little about us…
Thalpos Holidays began in the 1992 with a small programme of classic town houses in the picturesque village of Skopelos in the Sporades Islands. Since that time, the company has changed dramatically in size and scope and today specialises in the rental of villas with private pools. We have expanded our programme to encompass all of the Sporades Islands, the Ionian Islands and the Mani in the Peloponnese. Along with our huge selection of villas, we offer many support services to help independent people to travel stress free, including flight links, full airport to accommodation transfers, car hire, boat hire and welcome hampers. In addition, we offer an optional villa visit by our knowledgeable representatives to help make the most of your clients' holiday. Our service offices are staffed with informed professionals to ensure your guests enjoy their holiday to the full.

For you, the Travel Agent, we can offer full support and security for your clients and the assurance that they will be looked after in a professional and caring way. We also offer excellent net prices for all of our properties as well as special prices and discounts throughout the year. Customer service is our number one priority and our experienced staff are on hand to assist clients in any situation.

In addition to the above, we can offer a full wedding programme on the island of Skopelos, providing every imaginable service for a unique, traditional island wedding. Our experienced wedding consultant can make suggestions and offer consultations for wedding couples to plan their special day from beginning to end. We also offer discounts on accommodation and transfers for the entire wedding party. We are even able to book weddings in the churchyard of the 'Mamma Mia church' at the remote location of Agios Ioannis.

We can offer assistance to you in every way including how to reach our islands. We are pleased to announce new flights with Olympic Airways offering service directly from Thessaloniki to Skiathos giving our guests better opportunities to reach the Sporades Islands.

Please contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in expanding your client base and offering our specialized services and product. We are ready to give you further information and assistance at malou@holidayislands.com.

I thank you for taking this time with us and hope to hear from you soon –
