Big plans for Aqua Expeditions
AQUA Expeditions founder Francesco Galli Zugaro is in Australia this week to take part in a Virtuoso destination roadshow, engaging with several hundred travel consultants in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
Galli Zugaro, whose upmarket luxury line operates intimate expeditions on the Amazon and Mekong rivers, confirmed that Australia continued to be a key market for the company.
Aqua has a local partnership with Travel The World, and plans to shortly expand its representation to add a new ‘Brand Ambassador’ who will provide in-depth training and support for travel agents selling the product.
Aqua Expeditions is also set to roll out a new website and booking system which has been customised to allow agents to block out up to four cabins while they confirm a booking.
And the company is looking closely at expanding capacity, with Galli Zugaro saying he’s hopeful of adding several new vessels to the fleet.
