The Travel Junction has rolled out a new co-operative campaign with I LOVE NY – New York State’s Division of Tourism, coinciding with Air New Zealand’s newly launched non-stop flight route from Auckland to New York.
The campaign highlights the enhanced accessibility of New York State for Australian travellers. In addition to east coast capital cities, New York State can now be reached via the transPacific route with just one stop from Adelaide, the Gold Coast and Perth. Air capacity will be further increased to New York State when Qantas introduces its own Sydney-Auckland-New York service from June 2023.
Available to book via The Travel Junction’s HELiO platform, travel advisors will have access to self-drive and curated journeys into New York State to make the most of attractions – from Niagara Falls to The Hamptons, Albany and The Finger Lakes – with individual Package Codes to instantly access creative itineraries across the destination. Combined with land arrangements from just three nights, advisors can also take advantage of wholesale airfares available in HELiO with no ticketing or credit card fees.
Every New York State booking earns advisors maximum bonus points in The Travel Junction’s annual incentive, with the chance to participate in an epic trip in August 2023 for the 15 top sellers.
The campaign comes just in time for the US Autumn and Winter booking and travel season and exemplifies The Travel Junction’s commitment to encouraging Australian travel to the destination, to support New York State and wider US travel (the US being The Travel Junction’s #1 outbound destination).
Kevin Looney, Director of Sales at The Travel Junction said, “We love New York, and now that it feels closer than ever before, we are confident that this exciting new campaign with New York State will be hugely in demand.
“We’re enabling our trade partners to easily access accommodation-only and dynamic itineraries that we’ve developed in conjunction with the I LOVE NY team. We know that New York State will always be hugely aspirational for Australian travellers’ and the touring and self-drive options now available from New York City with a simple HELiO Package Code open the doors to the wonders of this region year-round.”
The promotion is supported by The Travel Junction’s commission offering on accommodation – of up to 12% – plus its commitment to never impose deposit, cancellation, or amendment fees.
