FAM TRIP NEW YORK


INSIGHT TEAMS UP TO SELL WITH TRAVEL 2


Insight Vacations has partnered with Travel 2 to sell its luxury tours exclusively through independent agents. Travel 2’s Luxury Touring programme will feature tours from Insight’s Luxury Gold range and a specially produced brochure has been created.


Insight said the move would help

it increase sales through specialist agents, while Travel 2 would benefit from more luxury product in a growing market. Travel 2 can add flights and pre-


restaurants. We had a great night with fantastic food and drink. I enjoyed this as it highlighted the dining options available to customers and provided lots of choice. Equally, if clients didn’t want to do this they could go out and find their own restaurant to eat in, as vouchers were given out to use. On our day trip we visited an oyster farm and had the chance to taste them fresh from the sea. The last destination on the French leg of our trip was Paris. What an end to a fantastic tour! Where we stayed was about as central as you can get in Paris, within walking distance of the Champs-Élysées and the Eiffel Tower. During our two nights in Paris we


dined at a beautiful restaurant and then for the second night we enjoyed an evening at the famous La Nouvelle Eve. Here we got to meet the dance coordinator and spent some time on stage before anyone came in for the show. And it didn’t stop there because I even got pulled up on stage and won a dancing competition in front


of a full house! It was an experience I’ll never forget. During the day, we did a whistle-stop tour of all the major sites in Paris – all from the comfort of our luxury coach, which had Wi-Fi, business-class seating and air conditioning.


On our return to the UK I was greeted with a private car transfer back to my home, which was a wonderful touch. From start to finish we enjoyed the


company of our travel concierge Peter. He was funny, knowledgeable, entertaining and nothing was too much trouble for him. Guides such as Peter are an integral part of the Luxury Gold experience. Insight Vacations’ Luxury Gold product is a game changer in the escorted touring market and I believe that once you’ve done one of these tours and experienced this level of refinement, luxury and excellence, you’ll never want to


settle for anything less. ● Insight Vacations’ The French Connection tour leads in at £3,650 in summer 2017


and post-tour hotels or cruises to the Insight itineraries. Agents will earn the same commission rates. Independent agents can also


win a two-night, five-star mini break in the UK by booking a Luxury Touring holiday between now and February 28. Gordon McCreadie, sales and


marketing director at Gold Medal and Travel 2, said: “It’s the first time we’ve had a standalone brochure for luxury touring. The new product being sold exclusively with us means our agents selling Luxury Touring will be armed with more options and the most competitive pricing to pass on to their customers.” Insight Vacations sales director


Paul Melinis added: “It’s the perfect synergy. Travel 2 has a fantastic relationship with independents and a lot of brand presence, and it will help us reach more customers.”
