Express Travel Group have today announced a new preferred agreement with Bench Africa, effective from 1 January, 2019. The new partnership will see Bench Africa travel packages distributed through the ETG agency member networks, Independent Travel Group, Select Travel Group and italktravel.
ETG Executive General Manager Ari Magoutis said, “Our member agents are looking for the very best expertise, service and support, in particular with specialist travel destinations like Africa. Both we, and our members, are very impressed with Bench Africa and all that they offer to support the travel agent community.”
Martin Edwards, General Manager, Bench Africa added “Bench Africa is extremely excited to be partnering with Express Travel Group.
The new partnership commences as the Best Speciality Wholesaler begins its 50th anniversary year.
“Our team of consultants have travelled and experienced Africa and are passionate about this beautiful continent and what it offers. We can’t wait to share this passion with the largest independent travel agency group in Australia,” said Edwards.
ETG recently announced a preferred agreement with Luxury Escapes (for italktravel) and Cover-More, and earlier this year added Chimu Adventures as a preferred partner.
“We continue to work with our agent partners to determine who the best and most appropriate partners are for our network,” a spokesperson for Express Travel Group told LATTE.
