Olympic connection with Rako Featured

A familiar face from the pre-pandemic travel industry reconnected with the trade yesterday when Rako Science hosted a function at Olympic HQ at The Cloud in Auckland.

After working for most of this year as a team leader at Covid testing stations, Tracey Brennan is now travel trade manager at Rako Science.

Travel agents will soon have their own trade portal on the Rako website where they will be able book pre-departure PCR tests for clients (and earn commission).

The client then receives confirmation of the time and location for the test,’ explains Brennan. ‘The result and certification is emailed to the client and we can provide a physical certificate if required.’

The company provides a seven-day service, results are provided within 12 hours, and an urgent service (six hours) is available.

Rako Science executive director, Leon Grice says travel agents are an important part of the travel industry. ‘We wanted to make sure that agents are part of the solution.’
