Last night in Sydney, Flight Centre Travel Group’s Luxury Travel Collection Member Portfolio held a celebration event to officially welcome the new entity’s foundation members – Bicton Travel and Claremont Travel & Cruise, Destination HQ, Dream Maker Travel, Emma Whiting Travel & Cruise, Home Travel Company and Travel Experts.
The event was supported by LTC Member Portfolio partners, Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises.
Lisa Pile, VP Sales and GM Asia Pacific, Regent Seven Seas Cruises said the sister cruise brands were “absolutely invested in partnerships”, adding that alliances like this are “really about growing each other’s business and a partnership does not work unless it’s two-way and it’s equal.”
“To the foundation members, congratulations on having the foresight to join The Luxury Travel Collection, and to my fellow partners and suppliers, congratulations to you too for sharing the foresight to back the Luxury Travel Collection,” Pile added.
James Sitters, Director of Sales AU/NZ at Oceania Cruises added that the association with LTC is focused on collaboration.
“The collaboration between the brands that are here and the partners is exceptional, and we are dealing with the best-of-the best here.”
“Working together not only amongst suppliers and brands but also the network is going to go a long way and we look forward to some exciting times ahead,” he said.
