Trafalgar’s new 2016-17 Autumn, Winter and Spring (AWS) brochure features up to 40 percent savings for your clients and enhanced year-round earning potential for you. Due to high demand, the portfolio of 33 trips in Europe, Britain and the Eastern Mediterranean includes three City Explorer trips, three CostSaver trips, and the company’s new, top-selling 2016 destination—Iceland—all available off-peak for the first time.
For example, clients can save more than $200 pp on the 8-day Rome Explorer itinerary (priced at $1,549 pp dbl) when they travel in January or February 2017 versus November or December of this year. Highlights of the tour include exclusive access to the Vatican before it opens to the public, a trip to the Campo di Fiori market with a local, and a cooking session at a local restaurant. In a press release statement, Paul Wiseman, president of Trafalgar USA, gave a few tips to agents on how to make the most out of the company’s off-peak rates.
“We’re seeing a trend of shorter book-to-travel windows, so agents should focus on selling fall vacations first through the end of the summer,” said Wiseman. “Peak booking for winter escapes, including our popular Christmas Markets and other holiday features, starts in September, and those seeking a spring escape typically do so after the holidays.”
Guests who book a trip and pay in full before Aug. 25, 2016 can save $494 per couple with the Early Payment Discounts deal. Past guests who have traveled with The Travel Corporation (TTC) family of brands receive a 5 percent pp discount (land only), and additional discounts are available for groups and solo travelers. Trafalgar is also offering a limited-time air promotion through British Airways and American Airlines, where clients can receive up to $175 off (pp) on airfare for summer, fall, holiday or spring travel when booked through June 10, 2016.
