Savenio joins Magellan
MAGELLAN Travel Group has added another new member, with Savenio switching to Magellan effective from 01 Oct.
The high-profile Virtuoso agency currently boasts more than 30 luxury travel specialists across the country, with owner David Brandon saying Magellan was the “perfect fit for Savenio, giving our affiliates great benefits for them and their clients, adding another layer to their business success”.
Savenio was previously part of Travellers Choice.
Magellan Travel GM Lisa Harrison said the group was delighted to welcome Brandon and his team into the family.
“We believe Magellan is the perfect home for Savenio, with our like-minded, high-quality independent members, diverse preferred partner offering, highend product range and rewarding financial model,” she said.
Harrison said Savenio joins other recent additions to the Magellan ranks, including WA’s Martini Travel which joined late last year, as well as Entourage Travel Group, the new homebased network established by former Travel Counsellors MD David Hughes and the Buerckner family who own existing member Platinum Travel (TD 02 Nov 2020).
Helloworld Travel Limited’s annual results announcement released earlier this week (TD yesterday) noted that as of
30 Jun, Magellan comprised 84 agencies, down 30% on its 121-strong pre-pandemic membership.
