Become a wellness travel advisor and win a luxe trip to Thailand

The Sell Your Way to Wellness famil and agent incentive has been extended and will now take place in 2021.

And let’s face it, by then you will absolutely NEED a wellness-centred getaway.

Olivia Trimboli from iTravel Griffith has been announced as the first winner, not only upskilling herself in a very much on-trend style of travel, but also securing her spot on a luxury wellness famil run by Health and Fitness Travel and the Tourism Authority of Thailand.

The dedicated wellness travel famil, which will now take place in 2021, will be a bespoke wellness retreat including return economy flights and private accommodation at award-winning Kamalaya in Koh Samui, plus more luxury wellness inclusions to be revealed.

Trimboli said she is very excited and can’t wait to share her personal retreat experience with everyone, she knows when her clients start to travel again there will be no better time to promote wellness holidays.

“In times of crisis we are forced to evaluate our personal situations and now more than ever we are seeing individuals re-prioritise their health first, which is why wellness tourism will be one of the first areas of travel to bounce back,” said Health and Fitness Travel director Samantha Lippiatt.

This quiet time is the perfect opportunity to upskill yourself so you have more to offer when your clients are travelling again.

There are six spots left up for grabs on the famil and the program will run until 31 May 2021.
