TruTravels coast along the Croatian Coast on epic famil 
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Small-group youth touring specialist TruTravels recently hosted six Australian agents on an epic famil sailing in Croatia.

    The lucky agents won their way on to the global famil by being the top sellers of TruTravels product over a two-month period earlier this year. They joined one agent from Germany and four from the UK as well as some media attendees on the 8-day trip.

    “It’s so important we reward and say thanks to these agents for the ongoing support since we launched into Australia and to be able to showcase just what makes TruTravels so special and unique,” head of commercial AU/NZ, Sophie Whiteing, said.

    “These agents are our official ‘Tru Hype Agents’ and will now come back to Australia with a whole new perspective on trendy ‘youth group touring’, as well as be our ambassadors for brand awareness in Australia. It’s imperative we build and nourish these strong relationships.”

    The agents got to live their very best Mediterranean yacht life and combine action, exploration, adventure and jam-packed holiday bliss with a group of newly found best friends whilst enjoying Croatian hotspots and off the beaten path areas along the way.

    How to float an agents’ boat

    A Flotilla Party was also included in the TruTravels famil.

    Tru Exclusives such as their Flotilla Party were also included so agents got the full TruTravels experience, floating by the boat with a prosecco in hand.

    The top two selling agents won both a spot on the famil as well as flights. The remaining four top agents won a spot on the famil and a $500pp credit towards flights.

    “The one question asked by every agent at the end was ‘How can we make sure we are all on the next TruTravels famil?’ which really does say it all,” Whiteing said.

    Agents should look out for future fams and incentives in the not-too-distant future. Any agents interested in experiencing the TruTravels product for themselves can get in touch with Sophie on for a generous agent discount. TruTravels can be booked online through Sherpa.
