With the release of “The Best Marigold Hotel” infused by a star-studded cast, including Dame Judi Dench, TravelManagers and Adventure Destination’s exclusive famil to India, couldn’t be at a better time.
The in-depth itinerary through India has been prepared and will be operated by Total Holiday Options who specialize in designing tours that introduce travellers to destinations where culture and the environment fuse. Executive General Manager for TravelManagers’, Mandy Scotney says India is a growing destination but having the right expertise is critical when advising clients.
“India has so much to offer, and we are noticing more enquiries from clients regarding the best way to experience it. Having an opportunity such as this to see this majestic country under the expertise of Total Holiday Options, is such an added bonus for our personal travel managers. We place a high emphasis on famil trips for our personal travel managers, many of which are exclusive to TravelManagers as a result of the supplier relationships we have.”
Anita Thomas, Director of Sales and Marketing, for Total Holiday Options, originally from India and resident in Sydney, says the famil trip will cover some great highlights but provide those attending with a real insight into local transport, culinary aspects of India as well as some special activities.
“In addition to the normal activities you associate with a famil trip such as inspecting the hotels and sight-seeing, this trip will unearth the very essence of India allowing the attendees to return feeling confident about selling India to the right clients.”
The participating personal travel managers are:
- Jill Wilkinson representative for Hamilton Hill, Western Australia
- Diane Craig representative for North Balgowlah, New South Wales
- Maree Oxford representative for Cardiff, New South Wales
- Naomi Liss representative for Vermont, Victoria
- Tracy Cosgriff representative for Palm Beach, Queensland
Scotney says the famil trip is affiliated to TravelManagers Specialist Consultant Training Programme which aims to assist their personal travel managers to qualify for “Find(ing) a personal travel manager by specialty” which is a designated tool on TravelManagers consumer website at: http://my.travelmanager.com.au/
“This option on our website allows our clients to search for a personal travel manager by a specialist area or country. It is proving very popular as it’s very consumer-friendly and is an easy tool for clients to find the support and individual help they need.”
