Hungarian Tourism Agency Ltd.

Wednesday, Dec 11, 2019 at 01:00 PM

Hidden in the centre of Europe is a country where water roils under the earth and erupts to the surface, hot and healing. A country, where you can refresh your body and mind by relaxing in the hot water of genuine medieval Turkish baths, both in the summer and winter. Where you can always find something historic or modern that touches your soul, and the atmosphere is vibrant and relaxing at the same time. Where the ”aszú” grape berries are harvested during autumn, from which beautifully balanced “gold wine” is produced. Where on hilltops, deep in the valleys and on endless plains, you find the hustle of small, centuries-old villages, charming towns, luxurious castles and a lively metropolis.

During our thousand-year history we have appealed to many, often even to those arriving with unfriendly intentions. Tartars, Turks and Habsburgs have left their footprints in the Carpathian Basin and millions of people have lived together, creating the colourful culture that exists in Hungary today. However, Hungary offers more than just its history.

Discover the characteristics of thriving modernism, as well as 21st century culture. Hungary is a country where the locals are rediscovering their surroundings, causing their cities, and the country as a whole, to become both lively and welcoming to guests.

The Wealthy Travel Agent

Tuesday, Nov 12, 2019 at 11:00 AM

The affluent travel market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the industry. Luxury cruise lines are investing billions of dollars to meet anticipated demand over the next five years. It’s not just ocean cruises: affluent travelers are adventure seekers, expedition cruisers, and river cruisers. And yet, according to an annual survey conducted by a leading industry weekly publication, agency focus on luxury travel is DOWN 5%!

Are you one of the thousands travel professionals who only dream of breaking into this market? Maybe you think it is an exclusive club only for a select few advisers who have "those" types of clients. Hogwash!

Here’s the thing: if travel professionals are not scaling to serve the demand, then customers are forced to book directly with the supplier.

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 affluent travel business.

I grew up dirt poor on a hippie commune and am living proof that if you are committed to invest the time, money, and effort to make it happen, the pay-off can easily change your life. It did for me!

Are you up for the challenge?

If so, please join me, Dan Chappelle, The Wealthy Travel Agent, where I will break down the barriers and take the mystery out of selling to the affluent traveler.

I will share three key strategies that have made me successful selling to affluent travelers, plus lots of other useful tips. I promise it will be time well spent!

P.S.: If you are committed to building your luxury, river, and expedition business, after the program I will share more about how I can help you earn “Commissions with Commas!”

Tucked away in the South Pacific, the Solomon Islands are a little known, unspoiled paradise. The Solomon Islands are an archipelago of almost 1,000 islands, located between Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu – a three hour journey from Australia. These islands are laid-back, welcoming and often surprisingly untouched. Crystal clear waters with an abundance of the world’s most colorful fish, rays, and turtles make it a paradise for diving and snorkeling.

Visiting the Solomon Islands, you virtually step back in time. Amazingly, there is a large number of plane and ship wrecks scattered around the islands, which are remains of World War II. The Solomon Islands were the setting for some of the fiercest and bloodiest battles in history - August 2017 marked the 75th anniversary of the ‘Battle of Guadalcanal’

The people of the Solomon Islands are made up of Oceania’s three main cultural groups: Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia. Visitors experience a welcome from the heart in local villages, while being fascinated by the unspoiled and unhurried environment the Solomon Islands provide.

Headquartered at Henderson International Airport in Honiara, Solomon Airlines is the national airline of the Solomon Islands. The airline currently operates services from Honiara to Brisbane, Sydney, Fiji, Vanuatu, as well as an extensive domestic network around the Solomon Islands. Get to our newest route to Munda, a diving destination. Solomon Airlines operates a mix of different aircraft, including the newly upgraded A320 on international routes, Dash 8, Twin Otter, and Islander aircraft on domestic routes. Interline and codeshare agreements with Qantas, Air Niugini, Air Vanuatu, and Air New Zealand are in place. From North America, most travelers fly via Los Angeles, and either Brisbane or Nadi.

Travel Research Online

Wednesday, May 15, 2019 at 01:00 PM

Luxury travel is one of the fastest growing segments in the industry. Luxury cruise lines are investing billions of dollars to meet demand. By 2020, luxury cruise inventory will have more than doubled since 2016 and again by 2025. It’s not just cruises. Luxury niche and adventure tour companies are experiencing similar growth.

Yet, according to an annual survey conducted by a leading industry weekly publication, travel agency focus on luxury travel is DOWN 5%!

Here’s the thing, if travel professionals are not scaling to serve the demand - customers are forced to book direct with the supplier.

But why? The simple reason is - there are not enough “qualified” travel professionals to help meet this ever-increasing demand. I’m not talking about product knowledge – that’s easy to get, I am talking about advisers who can find and sell to luxury clients. 

Are you one of the thousands of other travel agents who only dream of breaking into this market?  I have heard all the excuses. I say to them, "Tell me what you can do, not what you can't!"   

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 travel business.

Are you up for the challenge? 

I created "Secrets of Selling to the Affluent Traveler" to take out the mystery and challenge the belief that luxury sales are limited only to a few chosen agencies and consortia. 

Once you understand Luxury Travel, it becomes easier to find your prospects and you will be on your way to becoming the Wealthy Travel Agent.

I look forward to sharing these great insights with you!

Lao Airlines

Thursday, May 9, 2019 at 02:00 PM

Join us for an educational and fun journey to Laos and beyond with Lao Airlines.

Most people overlook Laos when they're planning a trip for clients around Southeast Asia. While its neighboring countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Indonesia get thousands of more tourists each year, Laos has remained low-key and affordable outside of the spotlight.

Most people have no idea of what this mystical country holds. Laos has everything from tropical jungles and ancient Buddhist temples to delicious coffee and the absolute nicest locals. Laos is simply beautiful, and offers something for the adrenaline junkie or the “relaxer” who wants to detach for a while in waterfall wonderland.

Lao Airlines is the national airline of Laos, headquartered in Vientiane. Learn about our network, fleet and services on this webinar. Lao Airlines operates domestic as well as international services to countries such as Cambodia, China, Thailand, Vietnam, and Korea. Its main operating base is Wattay International Airport in Vientiane. Lao Airlines (QV) pays 3% commission on published fares in the US through ARC and is eticketable in all major GDS and accepts Visa/MC/Cash/UATP as forms of payment.

Please join Sascha Henckell, Product Manager for Lao Airlines USA for this webinar on Thursday May 9th at 11am Pacific. With your attendance comes the chance to win a $50 gift card prize courtesy of Lao Airlines by participating in our fun trivia quiz.

FLO TOURS

Very little information has appeared about the region of Central Asia in books and articles until recently due to two main two reasons:

First of all, there is really no country that one can identify in the area until early 1990s. Most specialists in Asian studies tend to focus on a specific country. But for Central Asia, this is not the case.

And the second reason is this area was closed off to the foreigners until recently because the western part of Central Asia was under Soviet rule and the eastern part was part of China.

Mesut Gurbuz Pehlivan will present this webinar on Thursday, February 14th at 3 p.m. Eastern/12 p.m. Pacific.

Topics covered include the secrets of Silk Road, Central Asia and her people. You will be briefed on how to organize a memorable tour in Central Asia using Flo Tours sample itineraries, timing on tours, iconic sites to be visited along its short history and beautiful slides.

Here's a definition of luxury that sounds much better according to Merriam- Webster Dictionary: a condition or situation of great comfort, ease, and wealth.

It depends on a destination, going luxury in Asia doesn't necessarily means you're going for broke to taste the high-life. Your valued clients will worship you when they enjoyed luxurious stay without breaking the bank. In Asia, only Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and maybe Singapore can be costly for a luxurious arrangement. Other countries such as China, Indochina (Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos), Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines, your clients will be able to taste a condition or situation with great comfort, ease and wealth.

If I told you that you can build a successful travel career…with little or no marketing expense, would you be interested?

You know, almost every executive and guru in the business will tell you that the only way to succeed is marketing, marketing, and more marketing. This is great advice, except for one simple fact, it’s not true. You don’t get paid to market travel, you get paid to sell it.

Unfortunately, virtually all the travel industry specific “sales” training is really just “marketing” training in disguise. That’s because the bulk of it is created by marketing, not sales professionals - and it shows.

Frustrated, Dan Chappelle, a seasoned travel sales professional, has spent his career focused on mastering personal selling techniques. As a result, he built a successful luxury travel company, with minimal marketing expense and has taught his sales techniques to thousands of travel professionals around the world.

  • How you can achieve sales success in 30 days or less.

A place, where everyone is happy, satisfied and warm to travelers.

Bhutan is a truly amazing place with spectacular Himalayan scenery, colorful festivals, historic monasteries, and a population that is more concerned with Gross Domestic Happiness than Gross Domestic Product. The four main pillars of Gross National Happiness include equitable and equal socio-economic development, preservation and promotion of cultural and spiritual heritage, conservation of environment, and consistent good governance. Gross National Happiness as a development paradigm has made it possible for Bhutan to meet the needs of even its most isolated villagers, reducing the gap between the rich and the poor, while promoting sustainable growth.

Bhutan is a unique place to visit, and tourism is the government’s highest priority. Every visitor – whether alone or in a group – must make all their travel arrangements with a tour operator and also air transportation. These services are provided by the National Airline, Drukair Bhutan Royal Airlines and of course Drukair Holidays may also provide you the tour package.

Solomon Airlines

Wednesday, Jul 25, 2018 at 01:00 PM

Tucked away in the South Pacific, the Solomon Islands are a little known, unspoiled paradise. The Solomon Islands are an archipelago of almost 1,000 islands, located between Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu – a three hour journey from Australia. These islands are laid-back, welcoming and often surprisingly untouched. Crystal clear waters with an abundance of the world’s most colorful fish, rays, and turtles make it a paradise for diving and snorkeling.

Visiting the Solomon Islands, you virtually step back in time. Amazingly, there is a large number of plane and ship wrecks scattered around the islands, which are remains of World War II. The Solomon Islands were the setting for some of the fiercest and bloodiest battles in history - August 2017 marked the 75th anniversary of the ‘Battle of Guadalcanal’.

The people of the Solomon Islands are made up of Oceania’s three main cultural groups: Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia. Visitors experience a welcome from the heart in local villages, while being fascinated by the unspoiled and unhurried environment the Solomon Islands provide.

Headquartered at Henderson International Airport in Honiara, Solomon Airlines is the national airline of the Solomon Islands. The airline currently operates services from Honiara to Brisbane, Sydney, Fiji, Vanuatu, Tarawa, as well as an extensive domestic network around the Solomon Islands. Solomon Airlines operates a mix of different aircraft, including the newly upgraded A320 on international routes, Dash 8, Twin Otter, and Islander aircraft on domestic routes. Interline and codeshare agreements with Qantas, Air Niugini, Air Vanuatu, and Air New Zealand are in place. From North America, most travelers fly via Los Angeles, and either Brisbane or Nadi

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.
