Ignite Travel Group (ITG) has launched an all-new touring arm that brings its holiday packages and award-winning expertise to the space of touring.
The new division will channel complete packaged and tour deals through the My Holiday Centre and Holiday Exclusives business units, offering customers incredible savings, excellent booking flexibility and the opportunity to explore new and popular regions with curated tour experiences that showcase the very best of each destination.
The launch of this new division gives travellers a brand-new way to tour, offering tailored deals packaged with full-service airfares, quality accommodation, guided tours, daily meals and signature bonus inclusions. ITG has appointed touring and travel professional Raymond Han to spearhead the division as General Manager.
ITG CEO Ryan Thomas said the company has drawn on its success to deliver a new range of tour experiences that leave nothing to chance. Select packages will also include cruising with pre- and post-cruise accommodation to give holidaymakers unique opportunities to explore the diversity of tried and tested destinations.
“Touring is a fantastic way to travel if you’re looking to immerse yourself in new and exciting experiences that provide unique, value-added benefits and meaningful opportunities to create lifelong friendships,” Thomas said.
“It’s a chance to see more of the destination than if you were travelling alone, learning about the region’s rich culture, history and economic influence first-hand from knowledgeable, local guides. Our tailor-made deals have been specifically designed to do all this plus more.”
“We’ve created a unique mix of global touring packages with broad appeal,” Thomas said.
Bringing a wealth of experience to the role, Han has pioneered ground-breaking success in the competitive space of heavily discounted touring, facilitating affordable and accessible holidays for over 50,000 Australians. From starting in a successful family-owned retail travel agency, Raymond has worked across all facets of the touring landscape and experienced first-hand the explosion of online travel agencies in an ever-changing market.
Han said he is pleased to have joined the Ignite family and looks forward to leading the division through this exciting new chapter.
“I feel incredibly honoured to be joining an innovative company that has a proven track record of disrupting the industry across the space of leisure travel and cruising,” Han said.
“Touring is an experience that offers holidaymakers unseen gems at every corner and stories to tell at every turn, I believe it’s the next frontier for Ignite and will bring an all-new dimension of travel to the business. We’re excited about the future and are already promoting a seamless range of unbeatable value deals through the respected stable of Ignite brands,” Han said.
One sample itinerary is My Cruises’ Ultimate China & Japan Cherry Blossom Discovery tour and cruise, which includes seven nights’ accommodation and a 13-night cruise aboard Celebrity Millennium. The package is available on 21 March 2020 and is priced from $3,990 per person twin share (when booked by 31 July 2019).
