Agents have been suspiciously quiet this week. Is everyone dealing with some serious holiday hangovers? We think you might be.
Globus’ 90th birthday celebrations are underway
Leading escorted tour company, Globus, will celebrate its 90th birthday on 28 March this year and to mark this milestone, agents are being given the opportunity to go live it up with the chance to win a trip for two to Switzerland – where it all began for Globus back in 1928.
Fast forward 90 years since the company’s founder first started transporting guests across Lake Lugano, and Globus is now offering travellers more than 480 holidays across 82 countries.
To be in the running for this crafted Swiss adventure, agents simply need to visit www.goliveitup.com.au, correctly answer three multiple-choice questions and say in 25 words or less why they want to ‘Go Live It Up’ with Globus in 2018. Submissions must be in by 28 March, 2018 to be considered.
Travellers Choice members embrace a Golden opportunity to cruise
Princess Cruises recently invited a selection of Travellers Choice’s rising ‘cruise stars’ to enjoy a voyage along the Australian coast on board Golden Princess.
Before boarding the ship for a cruise between Sydney and Melbourne, the group of 20 agents received a guided tour of Carnival Australia’s new headquarters in Sydney.
Travellers Choice General Manager Marketing Robyn Mitchell says the agents – who travelled to Sydney from across the group’s national network – are all dedicated to growing their cruise sales over the next 12 months.
“Princess Cruises provided a wonderful opportunity for some of our most ambitious members to expand their cruise knowledge and further enhance their first-hand experience of ocean cruising,” says Mitchell.
Travel Counsellors head office staff support mum’s in need
Christmas is a time for giving to those less fortunate than ourselves, but come January, that charitable spirit can sometimes be forgotten. Staff at the Australia office for Travel Counsellors decided to abandon the traditional December Kris Kringle and gathered all their lotto winnings and coffee money to fill a van with nappies for delivery to local charity, St Kilda mums.
Donating to a charity like St Kilda Mums is a direct and practical way to help families experiencing hardship or violence. The charity relies on donations from the community and distributed over $5 million of material aid last year. Travel Counsellors General Manager Australia, Tracy Parkinson said: “We are very proud to support this local charity. As a mum, it can be a daunting experience having a baby particularly if you don’t have a support structure behind you, so we are comforted that we can bring some peace of mind to these families.”
