Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
TORONTO — Following its widely successful Italy fam, Just You has launched its second agent familiarization tour, this time to South Africa.
Departing Aug. 24 and returning Sept. 1, the eight-day fam includes all breakfasts, lunches and dinners, porterage for luggage, and transfers on arrival and departure dates. International flights are not included, but the flights within South Africa are complimentary.
A total of 18 travel agents will sample local food and wine, learn about the country’s apartheid history, and search for the Big 5 in Kruger National Park over the course of the fam.
The trip starts in Johannesburg with a tour of Soweto before heading to Kruger National Park where guests will stay for three nights and head out on safaris. Other highlights include exploring Cape Town and visiting Table Mountain, plus a trip to Cape Nature Reserve and Boulders Beach to see penguins.
“We are really excited to be offering another trip for agents to experience what a Just You tour is like, and see why we’re the experts in solo travel,” said Nick Roberti, Just You’s National Sales Manager.
As an added incentive, agents who sell 10 Just You tours within a year of returning from the fam will earn their fam money back. “Just another reason to apply to travel with us,” added Roberti.
Agents must apply before June 14 and fill out an application form, available here: http://bit.ly/JustYouFamSA.
Just You offers guaranteed departures of every tour in its latest brochure. It also has a guaranteed price match and guaranteed price promise, meaning customers can book with confidence knowing that they’re getting the best deal for their chosen tour.
The company also prides itself on offering handpicked accommodation, with every agent getting a twin or double room of their own. Each Just You tour is also accompanied by a professional Tour Manager.
