Travel Agents

Rejoice! It’s the new look Travel Weekly

Travel Weekly

After months of hard slog behind the scenes from our tireless staff, we are delighted to unveil the new look Travel Weekly magazine. You might notice something different? Yes, we’ve waved bye bye to the old school portrait style and embraced the world of landscape publishing.

But never fear. While we might look as fancy as any high end coffee table book you can name, we’re still delivering a monthly wallop of news, views and destination features for travel agents all over the country.

In our relaunch issue there’s plenty to get you inspired too. We speak to one of Australia’s most experienced travel insiders, Gil McLachlan, to get his thoughts on the state of the industry. And in our new feature – 5 Things I’ve Learned – we hear from another travel veteran in Gai Tyrrell, who provides some pearls of wisdom she’s picked up over the course of her stellar career.

We’ve tossed in a bumper photo essay too, as we check out the best looking travel agencies around. There’s no better way to admire these fine looking shopfronts than via landscape imagery we think you’ll agree.

For your monthly dose of armchair travel, sit back and be transported to exotic destinations from rejuvenated Medellin in Colombia to the glorious Greek isles. You can even vicariously paddle through Antarctic ice floes or feel the thrill of a South African walking safari. If that’s not enough, we’ve also road tested the world’s best airport lounges – all for your benefit, of course.

And as an added bonus, our new look issue comes with a bumper 36 page supplement on New Zealand. Put together in conjunction with Tourism New Zealand, this resource contains features on cycling, skiing, seasonal activities, plus guides to all of New Zealand’s nine regions as well as handy itineraries that make selling the destination a breeze. So tuck in to boost your knowledge of all things Aotearoa.

Yep, we’ve got travel covered from top to bottom and we hope you enjoy reading the new look Travel Weekly as much as we’ve enjoyed putting it together.

Happy travels.

Tourism supports 1 in 10 jobs: report

Tourism might support one in 10 jobs, but does it support us when we have a fight with our bf and need a large tub of Ben & Jerry’s?

Aboriginal tourism toolkit for agents

by Vanessa Bussoletti

Our boss gave us a toolkit for writing better article blurbs, but we tossed it in the bin. Explains why we make such bad puns, we guess.

Which reality show is giving NSW the spotlight?

by Vanessa Bussoletti

Sadly, ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ never responded to our audition video, but it seems NSW is having a bit more luck in the celebrity department.

Upon writing this piece, we realised how profanity-filled today’s newsletter is. Not that we’re apologising, mind. It’s just an observation.

Will travel insurance cover checked-in electronics?

by Hannah Edensor

The question of the day is, ‘Will travel insurance be there when your checked-in laptop breaks?’ That and ‘What will we have for lunch today?’

Experiential travel big driver for visitors to this nation

by Amy Bryant

The reason we go to places is because someone’s kicked us out of the house we’re staying at rent free. Experiential travel seems like a better reason.

Alaskan flight gets own ‘Snakes on a Plane’ incident

by Hannah Edensor

We hope the pilot of the plane swaggered into the cabin and shouted, “I have had it with these motherf**kin’ snakes on this motherf**kin’ plane!” but probably not.

It’s a rivalry as old as David and Goliath, except it’s much younger and comes with more beards and coffee breaks.
