The Travel Corporation launches new division for agents

The Travel Corporation (TTC) has created a new division to help the agent community to kickstart their groups business and help rebuild international sales.

TTC Groups offers agent partners access to a range of flexible group solutions, supporting both scheduled departures and custom/special interest group opportunities, all underpinned by the financial assurance of TTC.

The TTC Groups division is a team of professionals with a combined 40-plus years’ experience, and is led by industry veteran Robyn Brown.

As a collaboration of the TTC family of brands including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Costsaver, Contiki, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Adventure World Travel and the AAT Kings Group, partner agents can access a choice of over 450 existing trips across 70 countries to power their scheduled group business.

TTC’s Australian chief, David Hosking (pictured above), said the new division leverages the network’s range of capabilities, global reach, buying power and expertise to benefit its partners’ line of business and boost their earnings.

“TTC is the only company that can serve as a one-stop shop to deliver across a broad range of categories from youth, premium, contemporary, luxury, river cruising, to adventure in the group space, both internationally and here in Australia and New Zealand,” he said

“The world has changed and TTC is committed to partnering with trade to not only build back business, but create new profitable opportunities in the groups space.”

The launch of TTC Groups comes not long after the company made the bold move of opening its destination management company portfolio to the rest of the industry.
