Ignite Travel Group (ITG) has launched a touring division, bringing its hand-crafted holiday packages and award-winning expertise to the space of touring.
The new division will see complete-packaged tour deals channelled through the My Holiday Centre and Holiday Exclusives business units, fulfilling “unprecedented” demand for affordable, bespoke packages.
Adding to its growing team of experts, ITG has appointed touring and travel professional Raymond Han in the role of general manager to spearhead the division.
“I feel incredibly honoured to be joining an innovative company that has a proven track record of disrupting the industry across the space of leisure travel and cruising,” Han said.
“Touring is an experience which offers holidaymakers unseen gems at every corner and stories to tell at every turn, I believe it’s the next frontier for Ignite and will bring an all-new dimension of travel to the business. Our bespoke and flexible touring packages are designed to empower customers and amplify opportunities for tourism partners. We’re excited about the future and are already promoting a seamless range of unbeatable value deals through the respected stable of Ignite brands,” Han said.
CEO Ryan Thomas said he was pleased to have Han on board in the role of GM.
“We’re pleased to have Raymond onboard as we trailblaze the space of touring with his vast experience and passion bringing to life our vision to continuing disrupting all corners of the industry and enhance the way we service our customers and their dynamic needs,” Thomas said.
“Touring is a fantastic way to travel if you’re looking to immerse yourself in new and exciting experiences that provide unique, value-added benefits and meaningful opportunities to create lifelong friendships,” Thomas said.
“For over 13 years we have demonstrated how Ignite can put unknown destinations on the map and its full steam ahead in expanding this across new regions using our established models to create unbeatable, value-packed fly, tour, cruise and stay packages.”
The launch of ITG’s touring division will see Han and his team work closely with mutually invested tourism partners to maintain longstanding relationships and deliver an unparalleled quality of experience through the company’s unrivalled distribution network.
The news comes after ITG recently revealed one of its subsidiary companies, MyQLDHoliday, will deliver exclusive Great Barrier Reef holiday packages as the official Australian trade partner to scUber, in a campaign by Tourism and Events Queensland who has partnered with Uber to offer the world’s first underwater rideshare experience on the Great Barrier Reef.
