Sneaky social posts from Flight Centre’s Global Gathering

Hannah Edensor

The spectacular Flight Centre Global Gathering has been rolling on for the past couple of days in Hawaii, and we’re absolutely green with envy looking at all our Instagram posts.

The #fctgglobalgathering has been raking in the social posts, from the glamorous ball gowns to the in-destination adventures, so we figured we’d join in the party and share some of the fun!

Not that we were invited or anything, *cough cough*.

Over 3000 of the company’s top achievers are celebrating at theΒ FCTG Global Gathering Hawaii event, representing the very best of the company worldwide and their outstanding achievements during the 2016/17 financial year.

A-lister celeb guests include Jane Lynch as MC, Bill Clinton as keynote speaker, and performances by Mark Ronson and Duran Duran. What a party!

And if InstagramΒ is anything to go by, 2018 Global Gathering will be held in Berlin, Germany!

by Hannah Edensor

At least nine Victorian tourist attractions have been hit by a credit card scam. We too were busted for buying clothes under our boss’s name but only to avoid buyers shame in the office.

What can you actually take from hotel rooms?

We could tell you this was an exclusive insight into what you can get away with stealing from hotels, but we’d be lying. We nicked it off an online forum.

As 56% of travellers get stoked about Qantas’ inflight Wi-Fi, our concern lies with the other 44% who clearly hate looking at cats on YouTube.

Cruising for young travellers is finally here

This first of its kind cruise brand had us at ‘Wine & Paint Classes’ because it combines two of our favourite things. Well, one, we hate painting.

52% of travellers swayed by Facebook photos: study

All of our Facebook friends’ photos inspired us to travel. And by ‘friends’ we mean the public profiles we stalk because we only have 4 friends.

Is your boss the Executive of the Year?

We tried to nominate ourselves for this award, but apparently ignoring the boss and pretending to be your own boss doesn’t actually make you CEO.

If you read one thing today make sure it’s Travel Weekly’s hotel wrap. Actually, your medication instructions and train timetable probably take priority.
