Franchise Owners Head to Mexico

May 21, 2024

Last week some of our franchise owners joined us in Mexico for the Advantage Travel Partnership's Annual Conference, hosted by Palladium Hotels Group. It was a fantastic opportunity to network, hear from some amazing speakers and learn more about the beautiful Cosa Mujeres region. 

After arriving at the hotel, the first afternoon was spent exploring, meeting up with friends and colleagues old and new and enjoying the epic Welcome Party.

Day Two was spent hearing from a number of speakers at the Convention Centre, diving into the world of technology, marketing and more. After lunch it was time for a 'speed dating' session, meeting with a number of suppliers and sharing ideas and expertise. It was a great way of getting to know more about the suppliers we work with and what they can offer our customers. 

Day Three saw more speaker sessions touching on consumer trends, the future of travel, AI, customer insights, the quest for adventure and of course...

What is Dynamic Packaging and why is it important?

Apr 01, 2024

In the world of travel today, there is no denying that customers are very savvy when it comes to shopping around for their holiday. With access to the world at their fingertips they can find holiday prices within seconds as well as being able to speak to multiple travel agents to find the best possible deal. Therefore now more than ever it is vital that our franchise owners have the tools to stay relevant in the market and in order to do this we have partnered with Advantage Holidays to be able to create dynamically packaged holidays. 

What is Dynamic Packaging?

Dynamic Packaging is when a travel agent will search the whole of the market and create a holiday by searching for each component of the holiday seperatley such as Hotels, Flights, Transfers, Car Hire etc. Once they have found the best price for each of these elements they then put the holiday together as a package and then add a margin on top. 

Why is it important?

In the current climate it is important to have...

Do Travel Agents get to travel?

Mar 29, 2024

One of the biggest questions I get asked as a travel agent is 'Do you get to travel?' and the answer is always yes! Whether that is because of the great discounts you can get as an agent or because of the incredible FAM trips that you can get access to. 

What is a FAM Trip

FAM Trip is short for a Familiarisation Trip. This is where a tour operator or hotelier will offer you the chance to join them on a trip to one of their amazing destinations so that you can learn everything you need to know and get to visit some of the wonderful hotels in resort....the best thing is that these are FREE due to being sponsored by the supplier! 

As a travel franchise we have fantastic relationships with our suppliers meaning that we get access to some incredible FAM trip opportunities. Having these strong relationships is vital to getting the support and training needed to increase your knowledge to become the best possible travel agent you can be.
