TTC to share its huge DMC portfolio with the wider industry

The Travel Corporation (TTC) has made the bold move of opening its destination management company (DMC) portfolio to the rest of the industry.

Incorporating brands such as AAT Kings, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki, Adventure World and Uniworld Boutique River, the travel giant has decided to offer its services to other travel companies and businesses to white label and tailor.

“During the uncertainty of the pandemic, we spoke to a number of our partners who were looking for an operational solution with the quality, knowledge, infrastructure, consistency and financial resilience to deliver on the ground in a new post-pandemic world – but they were hitherto unaware of the depth and breadth of TTC’s destination management portfolio,” Gavin Tollman, president of TTC, said.

“By launching a dedicated website and a series of new tools outlining the extent of our offering, and the financial strength that supports it, we hope to be able to present this hassle-free and risk-free opportunity to a wider range of leisure and corporate travel businesses.”

TTC has 12 DMCs offering holidays, local experiences, corporate travel and ancillary services across Africa, Europe, the Americas and the South Pacific, and already operates as a ground handler for a number of internationally recognised travel brands.

The company has launched a new website with marketing assets and training to showcase its range of experiences, TTC’s global footprint and the financial benefits.

The DMC solutions on offer include TTC’s day tours, yachts and small-ship cruising, safari operations, meetings, conferences and events, self-drive and rail journeys, private chauffeurs and small groups, specialist trips and transfer services.

Programs are not just available for English-speaking markets, with guided custom group trips in a number of languages, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Turkish, Spanish, German and Italian, also on offer.

The main pull here though is the financial stability TTC enjoys after 101 years of experience in the travel space.

Earlier in the pandemic, TTC proved its operational stability by revealing its officially audited unencumbered fixed assets are in excess of approx $387,000,000.

TTC’s DMC brands include AAT Kings in Australia and New Zealand, Siva Travel in Greece and the Greek islands, Brendan Vacations in Ireland and Scotland, TTC’s operations all across Europe, UK and the Eastern Mediterranean from Albania to the Ukraine, Destination America in the USA, Canada and Latin America, and a number of Africa specialists such as Cullinan, and Thompsons and Grosvenor Tours across Africa from Botswana to Zimbabwe.

In addition to working with the 12 in-destination DMCs, clients will also have access to support from TTC’s in-market teams across 40 offices worldwide.
