Dear Travel Agents, Partners and Customers,
We are pleased to announce that we finalized our work on preparing the upcoming Summer Season shore excursions programs and are currently in the process of emailing our offers to all those who have already requested our company's services.
This Newsletter is to put forward some important new information for all the travel agents who are already RED OCTOBER RUSSIA good partners and for those who might be unfamiliar with our company but thinking about and planning their future visits to Russia.
Due to the fact that the RED OCTOBER Head Office is located in St.Petersburg, Russia, and yet a great number of foreign guests traveling to Russia still prefer to deal with US or their home country travel agents, we realized the importance of professionally reliable partners in our constantly growing business,thus the following information which we hope will improve greatly our relationship with current and prospective clients. It is obvious that the travel agents who know the RED OCTOBER co. to be one of the best on the Russian tourist market, are confident of our quality products and together with their own excellent performance we could ensure unforgettable experiences for their clients when they are traveling in Russia. Thus our view that a good travel agent is an utmost important link to guarantee quality services and rewarding experiences expected by our clients, the value of which becomes even greater in the case of the new clients when only the travel agents who know our company well enough can readily give them the required credentials.
The reality of everyday business life is quite obvious: the more time you spend in the same country market, the more partners you acquire there with many of them even becoming your personal friends, thus our strategy is to constantly increase the number of travel agents working closely together with RED OCTOBER Russia head office. This is particularly needed due to the difference in time zones between Russia ,USA and Canada.
When the customers prefer direct contact with our russian office they are always welcome and we take our best efforts to be prompt with the feed-back and answers to all their questions. However, as it happens sometimes, due to the time difference the process could slow down.
Our goal being efficiency and quality of services, suffers greatly, thus bringing us back to the idea of expanding our travel agents' network with necessity of having direct representatives of Red October Russia in the market of interest,so the prospective clients could easily get in touch with them at any, convenient for them time of the day.
The prime direct link between US and our Russian office, whose name might be familiar to many of you already, is Mike Finn, who has been our Official Priority Partner working for the Red October Russia for more than 7 years now. You may call him at… 518-557-1230 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
