TORONTO — With African Travel, Inc.’s new Advisor Educational Program, Canadian travel advisors can not only learn about Africa’s top destinations but also visit them in person.
The 2021 program, featuring trips to Kenya, Tanzania and South Africa, was created to reflect emerging trends this year, including single-country exploration and flexibility in planning and travelling. With the program, advisors and their travel companion can both take advantage of the same low price, plus those interested in travelling to East African can bring along another couple.
To be eligible, Canadian travel advisors are encouraged to sign up and complete two courses: 1) African Travel Selling Tools and Resources; and 2) Africa Destinations Masterclass. Courses are taken via African Travel University, a dedicated Agency Academy eLearning program offering insights on ATI as well as tools and resources for advisors to help close the sale.
In addition, advisors will receive US$200 total cash back on the cost of an educational trip after the first booking of seven nights or more.
Example trips that advisors can look forward to, when the time is right to travel, as part of the program include:
