The Travel Corporation announces new groups incentive & groups webinar for agents

TORONTO — The Travel Corporation (TTC) is zeroing in on groups with the launch of a new sales incentive and an upcoming webinar that will introduce travel agents to the company’s newly enhanced Groups department.

As part of the group sales incentive, agents who book a new group with Trafalgar, Costsaver, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold or Contiki from now through June 30, 2021 will receive a bonus commission of $250 for booking groups of more than nine guests, $750 for groups of 15+, and $1,000 for groups with over 20 guests. 

According to TTC, group sales will be an important revenue driver for travel agents as travel begins to rebound. To help prepare agents for a successful rebound, Nick Roberti, director of group business development for TTC Groups Canada, will be hosting a two-part virtual webinar for all agents interested in learning how to expand their groups business.

“It’s no secret ‘bubble travel’ and ‘group travel’ have been at the forefront of client trends and TTC recognizes the important role groups bookings will play in this recovery period,” said Roberti. “We want to help our valued Canadian agents with this sales incentive so they can boost their earnings, and we’re hosting these webinars to serve as tools to provide them strategic tactics to grow their business for years to come.”

 

 

The first hour-long session will be hosted on March 19, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. and will introduce agents to the new TTC Groups department, which comprises the groups department of Costsaver, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Contiki. Other topics that will be discussed include the immediate and long-term benefits of selling groups, group travel trends following the COVID-19 lockdown, the various types of groups and top-selling group itineraries.
