Agents connect with Switzerland
A GROUP of 10 agents have recently returned from Switzerland, where they enjoyed the country’s boutique cities of Zurich, Basel, Lucerne and Montreux and the adventurous Interlaken, the Jungfrau Region and Zermatt, all via the spectacular Swiss Travel System of trains, buses, ferries and mountain cableways.
Agents experienced various types of accommodation; e-biking; cruising; wine tasting; and the many museums accessible with the Pass including the FIFA museum and Vitrahaus.
In their exploration of mountains, agents started with Mt Titlis where they walked across Europe’s highest suspension bridge.
The Schilthorn and its revolving Piz Gloria restaurant was another highlight, as was Jungfraujoch, Top of Europe, home to the highest mountain railway. Before heading home, agents visited Zermatt, home of the iconic Matterhorn.
Hosted by Birgit Weingartner from Switzerland Tourism ANZ and Lorna Groves from Swiss International Air Lines; with the support of Entire Travel, participating agents included Cyd Bullwinkle, Savenio; Brooke Reid, Travelrite International Heathmont; Rebecca Davis, Flight Centre; Jacqueline Bingham, Helloworld; Lay Pheng Tye, itravel; Sandra Paddick, Kadina Travel; Ashlee Cutting and Danielle Wulf, Travel Associates; as well as Anthony Wieland and Josephine Iacovitti, Switzerland Travel Connection.
