lTORONTO — The Tobago Specialist Program is now up and running on Travelweek’s Learning Centre, providing agents the opportunity to learn about this idyllic Caribbean island along with a chance to win a Tobago FAM trip.
Separated into its four cornerstones – Eco Adventure & Nature, Sea & Beaches, Local Culture, People & Heritage and Romance & Weddings – the Learning Centre course showcases why Tobago is such an unforgettable off-the-beaten-path destination with many authentic experiences for your clients.
Tobago is one of the last truly undiscovered places in the Caribbean where unspoilt traditions, untouched natural beauty and undiscovered gems merge to create the idyllic Caribbean escape. It’s a place where travellers can hike to a waterfall – and be the only people there. Where visitors can attend local street parties and dance to authentic steel pan bands. And where guests can stay in treehouses in a lush tropical forest.
“The very pillars upon which Tobago’s tourism product stands firm are perfectly matched with what Canadian leisure travellers are looking for. Our island boasts beautiful seas and beaches, we have a burgeoning romance and wedding sector, we offer eco-adventure and unspoilt nature, and we top it off with a rich culture, heritage, and friendly people,” says Louis Lewis, Chief Executive Officer for Tobago Tourism Agency Limited.
By taking this course, agents will learn how to sell Tobago, and what makes it unique to all other Caribbean islands. This course takes agents through the four cornerstones and additionally breaks down the key selling points into main highlights and what’s important to know, and the range of activities available.
Agents who complete the course within the first three months will have the opportunity to win a Tobago FAM trip featuring one roundtrip economy class air ticket from Toronto to Tobago, seven nights’ accommodation in Tobago with transfers, meals and tours on the island.
For travellers deciding on their next vacation and looking for an authentic Caribbean experience, the naturally unspoilt and untouched vibrant island of Tobago is a great option, says Lewis. With beautiful sand beaches, a lush tropical rainforest, inspiring eco adventures, stunning scenery, and a fascinating local heritage, Tobago can offer a little bit of everything to your client.
Lewis adds further, “With direct flights available from Toronto to Tobago with Sunwing Airlines, it is now even easier for Canadian travellers to escape to our unspoilt, untouched, undiscovered island. We at the Tobago Tourism Agency look forward to welcoming Canadian visitors to our little slice of paradise, to experience a Caribbean holiday that goes beyond the ordinary.”
