Trafalgar’s American Dream

Claudia Comacchio

Trafalgar has released its most expanasive, all-encompassing Americas programme yet, the 2016 The Americas brochure.

The brochure includes the USA, Canada, Central and South America, and has been specifically created with time-poor agents in mind.

Choice now includes over 60 itineraries, more than 160 Insider Experiences, and seven new guided holidays, offering guests the opportunity to access experiences they don’t have when travelling alone.

“We really want to make sure agents have the support they need when selling Trafalgar or specifically in this case, the Americas, to their clients. We believe that by combining our entire Americas product into the one brochure, not only will it simplify the process for our agent partners and enable them to confidently sell the real Americas,” Trafalgar Australia managing director, Matthew Cameron-Smith said.

“In addition, Trafalgar is the only operator to share live, unedited reviews from our guests through our partnership with independent review company Feefo. By bringing our guest experience to the forefront, agents can use over 12,000 guest reviews to inspire their clients and help close the sale,” Cameron-Smith said.

Trafalgar has highlighted the numerous projects it is involved with under the banner of #TrafalgarCares. Guests will be able to immerse themselves in #TrafalgarCares initiatives, from supporting local artisans in Peru, to working alongside conservation projects such as the Grizzly Bear and Discovery Centre at Yellowstone National Park, and experience the satisfaction of giving back to the communities they are visiting.

Featured itineraries for 2016 The Americas brochure includes:

  • 14-day East Coast USA & Canada guided holiday: from $5075 per person, twin share. Guests will stay in Authentic Accommodation at Boston’s Omni Parker House. Savings of up to $540 per person are available when clients book and pay in full by October 30, 2015.
  • 10-day Tastes and Sounds of the South guided holiday: from $3650 per person, twin. Guests will travel through Nashville, Memphis, Natchez and New Orleans and enjoy Insider Experiences. Guests can now extend their trip to include a 7-night American Queen Mississippi River Cruise, attend the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival or join in on February Mardi Gras celebrations.
