Travel Research Online

Tuesday, Dec 5, 2017 at 01:00 PM

The Affluent Travel market is one of the fastest growing segments of the industry. Since 2015 the luxury cruise capacity increased by almost 100%. This means the number of berths available for sale has practically doubled. Brands in the luxury cruise, tour, and hotel segment are increasing capacity to meet demand, but yet, according to a leading industry weekly publication, agency focus on selling luxury travel is DOWN 5%!

Obviously, there is demand for luxury products. Otherwise, why would these companies be making such a huge investment? Look, here’s the thing, if travel professionals are not scaling to serve the demand, then customers are forced to book direct. Because of this, there is tremendous opportunity for “qualified” travel professionals to help meet this ever-increasing demand. My guess is you are like thousands of other travel agents who only dream of breaking into this market. Believe me when I say I have heard all the excuses why not. I always say to them, "Tell me what you can do, not what you can't!"

If you are willing to commit to learning and executing a sales strategy focused on developing an affluent clientele as part of your overall business plan, I promise you will be very pleased with the results.

Are you up for the challenge? All it takes is someone who has actually done it, show you how. This is where I can help you. As an agent, I was stuck selling mass market cruises and tours. We were only making a couple of hundred bucks for each sale. We were going broke because we couldn’t do the volume to compete, nor did we have the marketing funds required to build a business based on mass-market product. But let’s be real, there is a lot more to it than simply hanging out a shingle and announcing to the world you are in the luxury business.

I was fortunate to have strong mentors early in my career. Once I figured out the secrets of selling to affluent customers my sales & profits skyrocketed. Soon, I began to notice other successful travel sales professionals following a similar pattern, but none had a formal, systematic process to find and target qualified prospects. I created "Secrets of Selling to the Affluent Traveler" to break down the wall of mystery and especially to challenge the belief that luxury sales are limited only to a few chosen agencies and consortia.

As an executive at two major travel franchise organizations, I began sharing these concepts with business owners, managers, and agents. Later as Vice President of Sales for Windstar Cruises, I regularly shared these secrets as part of product training with agents all over the world. However, teaching agents about the Windstar was not enough to move the needle. I had to show them how to find and sell to the affluent clients. “Secrets of Selling to the Affluent Traveler” solves this problem for good.

Once you understand what Affluent Travel really is all about, it becomes easy to identify and find your prospects. It will all come together fairly quickly and you will be on the road to becoming a Wealthy Travel Agent.

Please join me as I share six secrets I have learned over the years selling to affluent travelers. I promise it will be time well spent!

Highlights of this one hour webinar include:

  1. Six characteristics Affluent Travelers have in common.
  2. How to identify potential clients.
  3. How to get your head in the game.
  4. What you need to know about money and more!

At the end of the program, there will be a special offer for those who are committed to executing a successful sales strategy focused on Affluent Travelers.

Aerolineas Argentinas

Thursday, Oct 19, 2017 at 01:00 PM

There are many reasons why one should really visit Argentina. Actually it is quite simple: Argentina is maximum diversity in nature, adventure, and culture. There are only a few places in the world where you can find glaciers, deserts, mountains, jungle, sea coast, and volcanoes all in one country.

Argentina also has a great variety in cultures, all with their own character. This diversity you can also enjoy in the food: try the delicious empanadas, the famous meat dishes, the excellent pastas, the seafood (along the coast), and more local dishes like humita or locro. Or what to think about the great Argentinean wines, and for the lovers of sweet food, do enjoy the famous “dulce de leche.”

And did you know you can visit Argentina at any time of the year? Because of the geographical length of the country you even have rather warm winters in the North and Central part of Argentina. In springtime and autumn you can visit all regions in Argentina, these are the most popular seasons for international tourism. Summer (January/February) can be very hot and humid in the northern and central parts of the country that is why many people visit Patagonia during that season.

Aerolineas Argentinas is the best way to Visit Argentina, more connections, more options and excellent service on board will make this experience memorable for your clients.

Borello Travel our mayor tour operator of AEROLINEAS VACATIONS, will join us talk about their excellent packages to Argentina.

We hope you will enjoy this webinar which will help you to sell these destinations and look forward to your joining us on October 19th.

Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), the leading airline between the U.S. and Scandinavia for more than 70 years, and Holidays with Downtown are teaming up to “provide fascinating travel experiences” and bring you amazing and affordable weekend packages to Norway, Sweden and Denmark. SAS provides easy access to the ultimate long weekend in Scandinavia. With eleven direct flights from seven major gateways in the United States―including four major cities on the East Coast; Boston (BOS), New York (ERW), Miami (MIA), and Washington D.C. (IAD) – Scandinavia has never been closer.

Holidays with Downtown has created packages including SAS air fare at affordable rates that are sure to entice clients to take that long weekend to Europe. As part of SAS’ commitment to easier travel and access for the busy modern traveler, the airline has invested in new innovations to make travel a faster and more personal experience. En route, guests can enjoy the comfort of the new, ultra-modern long-haul cabin onboard the redesigned Airbus 330-300―including Europe’s fastest Wi-Fi in the sky―as well as “New Nordic by SAS” in-flight cuisine highlighting seasonal, classic Nordic flavors and techniques.

Between a premium in-flight experience, and the Scandinavian touch of hospitality on the ground, a quick 3-day getaway in Scandinavia designed by Holidays with Downtown will leave travelers very happy. In fact, a recent study ranked both Norway and Denmark as two of the happiest countries in the world.

While in Scandinavia, travelers can first-handedly experience hygge, a Danish term defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being” as well as fika, the Swedish tradition that encourages locals and visitors alike to pause and reset via a coffee break and light snack. Additional activities and points of interest include cultural festivals, internationally renowned restaurants, special museum exhibits, as well as historic and artist districts in Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.

With the strong exchange rate as well as these forthcoming innovations and offerings from SAS―including a new service from Miami (MIA) to Stockholm (ARN) on October 29―a three-day weekend to Scandinavia has never been easier, more compelling, or enjoyable.

There are plenty of reasons to travel to Argentina. As the most populous country in South America and largest Spanish-speaking country in the world, Argentina has distinct and beautiful geography, interesting history and culture, thriving nightlife, and unique local cuisine. It's no wonder why Argentina attracts thousands of visitors every year. Here are a few reasons why tourists can't get enough of Argentina, and why you might want to plan a visit soon.

A country that always takes an opportunity to celebrate, Argentina has many different kinds of festivals. Buenos Aires is a host to festivals throughout the year including the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Film (BAFICI); Fashion Buenos Aires which celebrates fashion in a week-long event twice a year; La Rural, the nation's two-week farm fair and gaucho festival; and a gay pride parade. There are festivals celebrating art, music, and the tango as well. JuJuy celebrates the “Semana de Jujuy” when the usually quiet city comes alive for a week of partying to celebrate its founding. In Villa General Belgrano (near Córdoba) Oktoberfest is celebrated during the first two weeks of October with an enormous beer festival that celebrates German culture... and Aerolineas Argentinas will take you there.

We have excellent connections to all Argentina and our service on board will make this experience more memorable for your clients.

Where to take your clients next
Located in the southwest Pacific Ocean, New Caledonia is the third largest island in the Pacific. Offering one beautiful beach after the other, here you can immerse yourself in crystal clear turquoise lagoons, and vast open spaces.

New Caledonia is a nature lover’s paradise. Punching well above its weight, the island lays claim to impressive natural features, including the largest lagoon in the world and a 900 mile-long coral reef, second only in size to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, New Caledonia’s vast coral reef offers some of the most spectacular diving in the world. Not only is it an important nesting site for green turtles, but it also supports an astonishing variety of tropical fish, seabirds, sharks, whales and dugongs, also known as sea cows.

And there is more to this tropical playground…in New Caledonia you find a charming mix of French and Melanesian: warm hospitality sitting beside European elegance, gourmet food beneath palm trees, sand, resorts, and bungalows. The capital, Nouméa is a little piece of France in the Pacific, with its French Riviera atmosphere and its luxury boutiques. With an abundance of mixed cultural influences, New Caledonia blends together heritage, entertainment, and leisure activities. Long beautiful beaches are backed by cafes and bars, with horizons that display tiny islets to attract day trippers. Be lured into kayaks or microlights, rock climb, sail, dive into a world of corals, canyons, caves and shipwrecks, go whale watching or snorkeling, or relax on the warm sand of a deserted isle. Natural wonders and manmade delights are at your fingertips.

Learn how to get your clients there
Aircalin (SB/063) is proud to be the international airline of New Caledonia with flights between Noumea and international destinations including service to Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Vanuatu, Fiji & Tahiti.

Thursday, May 11, 2017 at 01:00 PM

With 30 years of global travel experience, ShoreTrips co-owners Barry and Julie Karp have an intuitive sense of the desires of today's travel savvy audience. They have focused on creating smaller, more personal tours and experiences. ShoreTrips currently offers more than 2,400 excursions and activities in more than 420 cruise ship ports of call and 180 cities throughout the world.

With its mountain glaciers, waterfalls, scenic overlooks, whales, sea lions, harbor seals, bears and eagles to gaze at, it's no wonder Alaskan sales continue to grow. Throw in a scenic railway adventure, salmon or halibut fishing charters, a dogsled ride and whale watching and you still haven’t touched the surface of all there is to see and do in this pristine wilderness!

Join us as we discuss Getting Ready for Alaska! We’ll run through the various cruise ports and what you need to know about each one. Not all itineraries in Alaska are created equally and the cruise you choose can have a big impact on your vacation and the quality of your experience. Similarly, not all shore excursions are created equally. Which would you prefer: landing on a glacier, no sounds to be heard for miles except for wildlife and the wind whistling in your ears, or the sounds of other tour helicopters landing next to your own? We’ll tell you how to experience the former.

We’ll show you the tools ShoreTrips has on our website for you to market to your FITs and to manage your groups. We’ll discuss when you should be booking for your clients or having them book themselves via your affiliate link (ensuring you make your commission!) Hint: Book sooner than later as Alaska tours can and will fill up.

We promise to be interesting, informative and even—entertaining! Investing an hour with us will help you discover money you may have been leaving on the table. You won’t get this hour of your life back, and your clients won’t get a second chance at this Alaska Vacation. Let us help you ensure it exceeds all their expectations.

Malta offers everything..spa and wellness, a thriving nightlife including the islands famous festivals, farm to table culinary delights and 7,000 years of history. Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to main squares that are invariably dominated by a huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.

Let's face it, webinars grow on trees. Every presenter who feels they have something to say schedules a webinar and then proceeds to deliver a data-dump often boring the listener to tears and distraction.

Not this time. Not this webinar. Not this presenter. Not this guest.

On July 16th Mike Marchev will be discussing exactly how travel agents can make more money if they spend a little more time focusing on groups and more specifically on river cruise groups.

In addition to Mike's often comedic and "shoot-from-the-hip" style of delivering useful information, he has invited Stuart Cohen to join him. Stuart has declared 2015 to be the Year of The Group and has a lot to say on the subject.

Together these two industry "icons" will do everything in their power to help you enjoy the hour and make more money while having more fun. (For no other reason, you might want to attend to see just what "icons" have to say about anything. Actually Mike is the "icon," and Stuart is an "Icon-in-training).

Maybe the webinar should have been titled "Icons-R-Us."

In any event, make it your business to join both Mike and Stuart on July 16th and allow them to make it their business to help you grow your business.
