The Travel Corporation (TTC) Tour Brands are adding three new FAM trip opportunities for travel advisors next year, including one in the U.S. and two in Europe.
All the trips will give advisors the opportunity to get some first-hand experience on some of TTC’s brands, including Trafalgar, Insight, Costsaver, Contiki, and Luxury Gold. According to TTC Tour Brands North America Brands president Melissa DaSilva, advisors have “always been key to our sales proposition, and now more than ever, we understand the importance of hands-on, personal experiences to interact with and understand each of our brands.”
“Consumers seek advisors for their incredible depth of knowledge and through these new FAMs, as well as our suite of travel advisor programs, we’re giving them the tools to guide clients from the inspiration journey to the sale, setting them up for success across our brands.”
Here are the trips:
- Taste & Sounds of the South FAM Trip, a U.S.-based itinerary that takes advisors from Nashville to New Orleans on May 8 through 15, 2023. The trip gives advisors a taste of a different TTC Tour Brand each day, from Trafalgar to Costsaver, Contiki, Insight, and Luxury Gold. Experiences include a visit to the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis (a Costsaver Make Travel Matter Experience) and a dinner at the Lansdowne Plantation during the Trafalgar Day in Natchez, Mississippi.
