During the past few months, TripShock’s support for America’s armed forces has been on full display!
First, there was the 2018 Annual Military Travel Expo: Morale, Welfare & Recreation, from Feb. 5 – 10. Sarah Simon, TripShock’s Director of Sales, greeted potential customers and partners at Fort Benning, Fort Rucker, NSA Panama City, NAS Whiting Field, NAS Pensacola, and Eglin AFB (where Suzanne Bratton, Group Sales Coordinator, joined her).
“It was a real treat to get to see several of our partners live and in person! Everyone had nice things to say about doing business with Tripshock, and we shared our mutual excitement for the upcoming spring break and summer seasons,” said Ms. Simon.
“Meeting other business representatives and explaining how Tripshock can help their business, either as a partner or an affiliate, was one of the best parts of the event. Since our communications are 99% over the phone and via email, it was fun being face-to-face with new customers who travel to the Gulf Coast with their families. Showing them how Tripshock promotes hundreds of high value, budget-friendly activities right on their smartphones was wonderful! Our ‘locally based’ reservations agents and the ‘locals only’ information we can provide because we live here really caught their attention. And best of all, we gave away a $25 promo at each of the six locations. Learning Tripshock offers a military discount put smiles on a lot of faces!”
Another aspect of TripShock’s military partnership comes in the form of including its booking portal on the website for the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport (VPS). VPS is located on the Eglin Air Force Base between Fort Walton and Destin, FL, and gives airline passengers access to multiple excursions: www.flyvps.com/excursions/.
Working with these types of entities shows why TripShock is the most trusted site of its kind in the Southeast. It also speaks to the team’s reliability, customer service, and most importantly, its pride in the military!
