We welcome travel agents!
Every year we conduct Travel Agents study trips. Previous years we ran trips to Central Europe, Sicily, Naples, Baltics, Georgia/Armenia. These are personable small group led by Sophia Kulich.
This year we present the following 7 trips - click here to see it.
Most Travel Agents sell cruises, escorted tours and occasionally hotels.
What if you have a client who does not want bus tour or cruise?
There are many independent travelers who research on the internet, book hotels, rent cars, find guides on their own. Travel agents are missing this market!
This is called FIT – Flexible (or Foreign) Independent Travel.
Why Travel Agents do not like FIT? We asked and what we've heard...
- Too complicated and time consuming
- I don’t know destination
- Hotels booked direct, do not pay commission or take long time to chase for commission
- I do not know quality of hotels
- I used major suppliers but they are not flexible with FIT packages...
