Funjet offers CRS-only rates on packages

MILWAUKEE -- Funjet Vacations is adding a new twist to the move by tour operators to reward agents who book electronically: discounted package prices only available through the CRSs. Agents now can book System $avers, a new program offering reduced package prices only through the CRSs. The discounted rates will not be available through Funjet's call centers. Funjet, the flagship of the Mark Travel Corp., is backing up the program with a consumer newspaper campaign in Milwaukee, Kansas City, Seattle and Portland, Ore. The ads direct consumers to agents for the System $avers rates. In the first phase of System $avers, the discounted pricing will apply to charters booked from Atlanta, Cleveland, St. Louis and Salt Lake City to various Funjet destinations. And, the prices will apply to all charters from Milwaukee and Kansas City to Las Vegas and on scheduled air service on Alaska Airlines to Las Vegas and Reno, Nev. The savings vary, but, as an example, the System $avers rates on Milwaukee-Las Vegas packages are $20 less than if the telephone is used. The System $avers program is expected to be expanded to more of the Funjet product line in January, it said. For information, call the inside sales department at (800) 558-3060, Ext. 2588 or 2685.
