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 — UNIGLOBE Travel (Eastern Canada) has two major agency renewals plus a brand new partner agency under its belt.
UNIGLOBE The Premiere Travel Group and UNIGLOBE Bon Voyages Travel have each signed multi-year renewals of their agency franchise agreements.
