PHOTOS: TravelManagers kick off the year onboard Azamara and Oceania cruise liners

TravelManagers kicked off the new year in style on board Azamara and Oceania cruise ships, looking to back up their record sales numbers.

Personal travel managers (PTMs) from Sydney and Adelaide joined members of the national partnership team (NPO) after being invited to participate in cruise inspections to get a taste of the onboard experience on the Oceania MS Regatta and Azamara Quest. 

TravelManagers provide a range of services across family, cruise and corporate trips, focusing on giving their clients the best possible experience while travelling. With a network of PTMs in all states and territories throughout Australia and a committed support team in head office, TravelManagers boasts a wealth of experience in the industry and ensure that they are not only there to help through the booking process, but also every step of the way on your holiday.

Last December was a record breaker for the company, with the average growth per PTM up 85.7 per cent compared to pre-pandemic sales in December 2019.

“These results tell a fantastic story on their own,” said TravelManagers’ finance and commercial manager, Tanyu Cilek, “but an even better one when you realise that the December figures are part of a longer-running growth trend.

“Over the six months from July to December 2022, our PTMs have recorded an average of 52 percent growth compared with the equivalent six-month period in 2019.”
