Posted: 21 May 2019 Trafalgar declares 22 May National Agents Day


In another travel first, Trafalgar is officially decreeing every second to last Wednesday in May to be celebrated as National Agents Day in South Africa! As a brand that champions the #AgentsFirst philosophy it was deemed only right to show agents how much they appreciate them and everything they do for their partnership. Trafalgar will be spreading the love in various ways throughout the day to show agents more than ever that ’we hear you and are here for you’.

"We’ve created this holiday to say thank you to our agents for all the love and effort they put in when making bookings for Trafalgar. From this year forth Trafalgar declares May to the month in which travel agents are feted, celebrated, rewarded and shown the appreciation we believe they deserve,” says Managing Director for The Travel Corporation and parent company to Trafalgar, Teresa Richardson.

National Agents Day joins the brand’s celebrations in other regions around the world who are also paying tribute to their valued agent partners globally both on 22 May and throughout the entire month.

South African travel agents will be able to participate in the following celebrations:


Agents who post an image, video or status (in 25 words or less) on the Trafalgar Tribe Facebook page on 22 May telling Trafalgar what #AgentsFirst means to them (we’d also love you to complete the Trafalgar #AgentsFirst survey!) will go into the running to be 1 of 3 winners to get an Uber Eats voucher on us! Don’t forget to include the Hashtag #AgentsDaySA  & #AgentsFirst in order to be in the running.


Trafalgar will be asking Agents how they can continue to better serve them with a dedicated survey which will be featured throughout their Agents Day communications.

3. Make a sale on the 22 May and take payment for the deposit and you will receive a limited edition coffee mug to enjoy throughout Winter

4. And that’s not all! Trafalgar will also be taking it to the streets with the sales team hand delivering giant I LOVE MY AGENT cookies and YOU ROCK biscuits to travel agencies on the day, while internal agents will be taking part in a special morning tea celebration. Share a snap with #AgentsDaySA!

5. As part of Trafalgar’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, Global CEO Gavin Tollman will commission 100 trees to be planted to commemorate the occasion with sustainability partner
One Tree Planted, to support reforestation in places like North America and Tanzania

Happy inaugural National Travel Agents Day from Trafalgar!
