TTC celebrates agents with travel voucher giveaway and half-price trips

The Travel Corporation (TTC) is celebrating travel agents this month to show their support for its trade partners when the industry needs them most.

Coined by Trafalgar, Agent Appreciation Month is about celebrating the wonderful work agents do and expressing appreciation, especially given the hard yards and heartbreak the agent community has experienced over the past 18 months.

To say thank you, Trafalgar is running a competition throughout the month to give agents the chance to win a $500 future travel voucher towards the Trafalgar or Costsaver of their choice plus loads more prizes via the Trafalgar Tribe Facebook Group.

“Trafalgar is known and trusted as the #AgentsFirst brand; we are proud to stand alongside and celebrate our agent partners who are keeping the dream of travel a reality for our mutual guests,” Katrina Barry, Trafalgar Australia’s managing director, said.

“We could not exist without our partners. Together, we know we are stronger, and so this month, we want to take the opportunity to thank and celebrate YOU, for all that you are and all that you do as we rebuild the industry together.

“Soon, we will be able to make travellers’ dreams a reality again, as we start booking for 2022 and 2023 and explore once more.”

AAT Kings is also getting in on the travel agent love, offering 50 per cent off selected guided holidays and 35 per cent off for their travel buddy!

The brand will also run an incentive for agents to score a $50 gift card and go ion the draw to win a free guided holiday in New Zealand for two people.

Agents can take advantage of this deal and indulge in the Flavours of South Australia tour with Inspiring Journeys, which includes a private cooking demonstration at Maggie Beers Cook and the Chef studio, dinner at hatted dArrys Verandah Restaurant and boutique accommodation.

Alternatively, they can take advantage of the travel bubble and do a seven-day guided AAT Kings tour from Auckland to Wellington.
