Insight Vacations launches new ‘Luxury Gold’ itineraries

TORONTO — Insight Vacations is launching a new style of travel branded ‘Luxury Gold by Insight Vacations’.

Introduced last night at a presentation at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Toronto, the new brand has been created to meet current and future growth in the market for luxury vacations.

In 2010, 4% of Canadians had incomes over $250,000, this will rise to 10% by 2016. This combined with an aging population puts Insight in a strong position to meet the demands of a demographic looking for a comfortable luxury experience.

“For the first time in history, there are more Canadians over of 65, than under 15,” said Cris David, president of Insight Vacations Canada, “and these aging baby boomers have the time and they have the discretionary income to purchase travel experiences. An estimated 18% of seniors will be retired in 2016 and they are ready and they are primed to travel and there has never been a better opportunity to introduce an exceptional leisure travel product like Luxury Gold.”

Also in attendance was Brett Tollman, CEO of The Travel Corporation, who spoke about the commitment the company has to quality. “We don’t have loyalty programs, we prefer to take that money and to re-invest in training our staff and providing a better service, because that is what brings people back.”

The new collection has over 30 itineraries in Europe, India, Bhutan, Nepal, North America and South America and will focus on four major selling points:
