Fam trips lead to dream enquiries
October was a funny old month, not knowing if it was summer, winter or spring – and clients seemed just as confused.
We've had a fair few Japan enquiries. Holly at Inside Japan is an absolute fountain of knowledge and helped us secure a lovely £8,000 booking for next April. There seems to be nothing the team there does not know about Japan, and the same goes for the Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Burma teams. Do give them a try.
Justine has just come back from Halifax and Nova Scotia with Lisa from Travelpack. They also visited Niagara Falls, where Justine was nervous to take on the Mist Rider Zip Line down the side of the Falls. But having done it, she says she would definitely do it again. Nova Scotia is great for nature lovers, photographers and hikers.
With visiting Blue, Humpback, Minke, Pilot and Sei whales, whale watchers can get very excited indeed.
Push the boat out
Tanya has recently been to the Norfolk Broads with Boating Holiday specialist Herbert Woods. She met with Business Development Manager, Steve Barraclough, who said the operator is keen to develop its relationship with the trade. It is a very relaxing break, especially on the Norfolk Broads where you do not have to keep getting off the boat to open and close the locks. It's ideal for couples, groups of friends or families with older kids.
Cape? No fear!
Not long back from South Africa, I had a dream enquiry walk in. The customer had no clue what she wanted, apart from 'Cape Town', so was delighted to have found us. It makes such a difference when we can talk with real authority and add little extras, such as the best place to watch for whales if you do not want to do it from a boat, or where to find the best chocolate cake! Long live the fam trip, I say.
