The Travel Corporation (TTC) has announced the impending release of its expanded domestic guided holidays range across multiple brands.
Matthew Cameron-Smith, the newly appointed CEO of the AAT Kings Group, said the company will be managing the ground-handling services for its sister companies in Australia and New Zealand.
This includes Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold, with Contiki also expanding its trip choices with the additional option of rail in some areas.
The AAT Kings Group has redesigned and enhanced its operations to adhere to expected new government standards. This includes all staff partaking in COVID-19 training and ensuring its entire supply chain complies with updated travel policies and requirements.
Cameron Smith said trips have been adapted to include experiences that celebrate the locals of the destination – connecting travellers to experiences they couldn’t typically access themselves, and giving agents an edge and the ability to genuinely add value to a domestic booking.
“Agents and guests will be able to redeem existing future travel credits on available travel in Australia,” he said.
“We’re showing our commitment to the domestic market and our agent network by expanding our footprint by introducing new trips and growing on our existing portfolio.”
TTC hopes to launch the domestic touring range within the coming weeks, in line with the easing of travel restrictions. In due course, once trans-Tasman flights resume, the brands will expand its New Zealand range for Australian travellers.
