Win a famil to the Philippines!

Want to go to the Philippines? Did we mention it’s for free? Keep reading, dear agents.

That’s right, you could be one of 6o lucky agents heading to the beautiful tropical islands this November – and it won’t even take that much effort.

The Philippine Department of Tourism just announced the launch of it’s new Fun Travel Experts programme – which gives travel agents the chance to attend one of the largest ever famil trips, to ~familiarise~ themselves with everything the Philippines has to offer.

Norjamin Delos Reyes, Tourism Attaché at Philippines Department of Tourism Australia and New Zealand, is super excited about the offer (but not as much as you’ll be when you win).

“We are delighted to reward Australian agents with the opportunity to visit the Philippines and see for themselves why it is such an incredible destination for a diverse range of travellers.

“We would encourage all agents to complete the training modules to ensure they are in the running to win this fabulous prize,” he said.

Featuring awesome marine life, deserted white beaches, and tropical jungles, you’ll also find breathtaking sunsets, post-card worthy views and the freshest of coconut juice on the collection of paradise-like islands.

So to enter the competition and experience all of this first hand, all Aussie agents need to do is head to www.funtravelexperts.com.au, register their details and complete the six modules. Easy!

The 60 highest scoring Australian agents will win a once in a lifetime, seven night trip to the Philippines and will have the opportunity to discover what makes the Philippines such an amazing destination to discover.  With over 7,107 islands to explore, there is an experience available for every traveller.

The competition is open to Australian-based IATA and ATAS accredited travel agents who are 18 years of age or older and who have not previously participated in any Philippine Tourism-sponsored famil.

The competition period runs from 8 September 2017 until 13 October 2017, with the winning agents travelling to the Philippines in between November 10-20, 2017. So get cracking on those modules!

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.

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.
