packages that include pre and post-cruise additions. Traveltek global sales director


Peter Whittle said: “Traveltek is making product and business development in the cruise sector a key priority.” The number of UK ocean cruise passengers is expected to top two

results could be mind-blowing.” traveltek.net


GRJ Independent manager Sally Hauser said: “This


brochure was developed to help agents manage an initial customer enquiry and hopefully suggest a rail holiday, as well as taking the hard work out of putting itineraries


together. “Our team knows the best routes, can suggest which side of the train to sit on and can really concentrate on the detail.” To request a downloadable brochure,
