GTC integrates ALTOUR’s Independent Advisor network

Global Travel Collection expands global reach through unified approach

Global Travel Collection has announced the integration of the network of independent travel advisors within sister company, ALTOUR, into the GTC portfolio. The firm says the transition —formalised at an event in London last week — re-positions Global Travel Collection as “the central home for all luxury independent travel advisors within Internova Travel Group”.

“We are excited to unite the ALTOUR independent travel advisors under the Global Travel Collection umbrella, and this is a transformative step in the growth of the business,” said Francesca Mendola, Vice President, Global Travel Collection in the UK.

“Although we know many of them already, we are excited to get to know their businesses better and learn how we can enhance their business and revenue opportunities. This event provided an informal way of coming together to celebrate our independent advisor community,” Mendola added.

“Our business model is the best home for these advisors, offering dedicated tools and support, as well as being able to help them diversify into other verticals, since we operate across business, leisure and entertainment travel.”

“Our Summer Soirée not only celebrated our collective successes but was a pivotal moment for us to communicate the exciting changes happening within our organisation,” said Angie Licea, President, Global Travel Collection. “As of today, we proudly house all independent luxury advisors under the Global Travel Collection brand.

“This integration expands our global reach, enabling us to enhance service offerings for all travel clients.”

The Summer Soirée brought together over 90 independent travel advisors and more than 100 preferred partners from across the UK and internationally.

Partners also heard insights on business performance, trends, strategic developments and future plans. They were shown how the changes would positively impact their collaboration with independent travel advisors across Global Travel Collection and open new opportunities for mutual growth.
