ETS Tours, a provider of faith-based tours, is opening up last-minute FAM space for the remainder of 2022 and early 2023. On the FAMS, travel advisors will learn more about faith-based travel and how it can lead to lifelong clientele.
“By experiencing the revitalization that faith-journeys inspire, travel advisors will learn how such travels motivate large groups of clients to travel with them again and again,” said James Ridgway, CEO of ETS Tours. “These opportunities will not be replicated in the near future, so it’s vital that advisors seize the chance while there is still room.”
Some of the opportunities available are a trip to Jordan, known for its Biblical sites; a river cruise along the Rhine that features Christmas markets; and an Egypt travel program that cruises the Nile and includes a diverse land program. Each FAM trip includes faith-based travel training sessions. Rates start at $999 land-only or $1,598 with air.
October 5 Webinar
Advisors who can’t make one of the FAMS can still learn about faith-based travel during an educational webinar on October 5 (3 p.m., ET). Participants will learn more about the FAM opportunities, as well as insights on how to sell faith-based travel, earn 15% commission and receive one for 10 travel credits.
“Faith-based travel is in very high demand, giving travel advisors a huge opportunity to boost business now,” Ridgway added. “There are 380,000 churches in the U.S. according to the National Congregation Study, and only about 50,000 U.S. churches have travel programs.”
