New Luxury Travel Course rolled out for Your Travel & Cruise

Home-based agents give program first test drive

Your Travel & Cruise members will be the first to take part in a new luxury travel training program aimed at helping them tap into the profitable high-end market to boost their bottom line.

Developed in conjunction with the host agency’s training partner organisation, Travel Training Australia, the course is initially being offered exclusively to Your Travel & Cruise’s network of home based agents.

The Luxury Travel Specialist Accreditation consists of seven modules including luxury destinations, experiences and suppliers; What is Luxury Travel; Who is the Luxury Client; and how to market and sell the sector, as well as a practical component where agents experience some luxury first-hand.

On completion of the course, members receive Luxury Accreditation status and access to an exclusive Your Travel & Cruise Luxury logo to highlight that they are a Luxury Cruise Specialist in any advertising and promotions.

Your Travel & Cruise Managing Director Les Farrar said the course was designed to help build agents’ confidence to sell more luxury travel.

“Luxury travel is a lucrative and largely untapped sector within the travel industry, presenting a wealth of opportunities for agents who have the confidence and know-how to sell it. We are thrilled to be able to provide our agents with exclusive access to such a valuable resource to help them get an edge over their competitors and grow their business,” Farrar said.

“Having a niche is a key part of being a successful agent and can be particularly helpful for those that are home based. In addition to providing a focus and direction when it comes to marketing, it can also be a great way to stand out from the crowd and grow a strong database of repeat customers. Becoming known as a Luxury Travel Expert can be a sure-fire way to increase commissions and profitability.”

In the coming months, Your Travel & Cruise will roll out a series of specialist training modules developed and presented by Travel Training Australia, an AFTA award winning organisation which specifically caters to the travel industry.
