Trafal­gar guar­an­tees 2018 Dis­cov­er­ies

Travel Daily - - News -

TRAFAL­GAR marked the launch of its 2018 Europe & Bri­tain brochure in Syd­ney last night with over 100 top-sell­ing travel part­ners from around the coun­try by an­nounc­ing it has guar­an­teed the de­par­ture of its 16 Dis­cov­er­ies multi-des­ti­na­tion itin­er­ar­ies and has ramped up its City Ex­plor­ers pro­gram.

Firm­ing up the de­par­ture dates of the Dis­cov­er­ies pro­gram comes as Trafal­gar en­joyed a ro­bust 24% year-on-year in­crease in book­ings to Europe & Bri­tain in 2017 from Aussie agents, a re­sult global ceo Gavin Toll­man re­ferred to as “ex­traor­di­nar­ily suc­cess­ful”. Speak­ing ex­clu­sively with Travel

Daily yes­ter­day, Toll­man said the “out­stand­ing” sales growth was driven by “joint col­lab­o­ra­tion and com­pan­ion­ship” with its part­ners, its pledge for 100% trans­parency through its Feefo re­views and vast prod­uct line-up.

Aimed at mak­ing book­ings seam­less and “avoid­ing con­fu­sion of fly free pro­mo­tions”, Trafal­gar is of­fer­ing a $699 re­turn Econ­omy class air­fare for its en­tire range of 97 Europe & Bri­tain itin­er­ar­ies.

Toll­man said a key fo­cus in 2018 for Trafal­gar would be con­tin­u­ing to put its agents first.

Re­cently, The Travel Cor­po­ra­tion- owned com­pany in­tro­duced on­line tech­nol­ogy that en­ables agents to book itin­er­ar­ies & flights at the same time.

“To our agent part­ners, if you want to see suc­cess, sell more Trafal­gar and what you are do­ing is cre­at­ing not only a foun­da­tion for your near-term, mid-term, but your long-term suc­cess be­cause this is just the be­gin­ning of the jour­ney,” he com­mented. Toll­man ex­clu­sively re­vealed to

TD that next year’s des­ti­na­tion for its Ac­claim event for Trafal­gar’s 38 high­est sellers would be in the French Riviera over eight nights.

And as a sign of fur­ther con­fi­dence in its prod­uct for agents, Trafal­gar has locked in all 29 trips from its 2017/18 Au­tumn, Win­ter, Spring de­par­tures to Europe and Bri­tain, along with its Hawaii 2018 pro­gram.
