Trafalgar launches 17 new Aussie and NZ trips

Tell your clients to pack their swags, because Trafalgar has released its 2021 Australia and New Zealand domestic program.

Well, the accommodation will be more upscale than a swag, but you get the picture.

The new range features a host of homegrown experiences, hidden gems and loads of remarkable locals with extraordinary stories.

Your clients can connect with and support locals, from a farm-to-table lunch with fifth-generation Tasmanian farmer Guy Robertson, to joining Tim and Isabelle Weston for morning tea and to hear about the world-record-setting motorcycle that was designed and built in their garage in Christchurch.

You’ll want to book them in quickly, though, with 10 per cent early payment discounts on offer for selected trips and a $99 deposit offer. Plus your clients can change their travel plans up to 30 days before departure.

Trafalgar managing director Jason Wolff said: “We wanted to give our agents homegrown experiences that uncovered Australia and New Zealand like never before [that] they could sell to even the most well-travelled client.

“With the added peace of mind that comes with our new flexible booking conditions and rigorous wellbeing measures, we have never been better prepared to reconnect clients with the joy of travel and support the people and places that need us most.

“It’s never been more important to open clients’ eyes to the incredible beauty that is situated right here on our doorstep and introduce them to and sustain the wonderful locals that bring these amazing places to life with their rich stories.”

As part of The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) stringent new COVID-19 travel precautions, Trafalgar trips now have smaller group sizes, social distancing measures and additional stringent sanitisation procedures, so clients can travel with confidence.

The new trips are available to book now and will commence in January 2021.
