TORONTO — The Travel Corporation (TTC) is opening up its Destination Management Company (DMC) portfolio to allow other travel companies and businesses to offer white-label solutions.
TTC, comprising the brands Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki, Red Carnation Hotels and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, has 12 DMCs that offer holidays, local experiences, corporate travel and ancillary services across Africa, Europe, the Americas and the South Pacific. It also operates as ground handler for a number of internationally recognized travel brands.
To reach its full potential in this space, TTC has launched a dedicated website, DMC.TTC.com, we well as new marketing assets and training tools to present risk-free opportunities to leisure and corporate travel businesses.
“During the uncertainty of the pandemic we spoke to a number of our partners who were looking for an operational solution with the quality, knowledge, infrastructure, consistency and financial resilience to deliver on the ground in a new post-pandemic world,” says Gavin Tollman, President of TTC. “But they were hitherto unaware of the depth and breadth of TTC’s Destination Management portfolio. They were excited to realize we could provide that solution across multiple destinations worldwide, affording them deeper access to the award-winning expertise and service for which our brands are well recognized.”
TTC’s DMC brands include: AAT Kings in Australia and New Zealand; Siva Travel in Greece; Brendan Vacations in Ireland and Scotland; TTC’s operations all across Europe, UK and the Eastern Mediterranean; Destination America in the U.S., Canada and Latin America; as well as a number of Africa specialists such as Cullinan, Thompsons and Grosvenor Tours. In addition to working with the 12 in-destination DMCs, clients will also have access to support from TTC’s in-market teams across 40 global offices.
Through long-standing industry connections, TTC’s DMCs can deliver a wide range of unique experiences, including a sunrise visit to Bruce Munro’s Field of Light installation at Uluru, exclusive to AAT Kings; truffle hunting in Meteora, Greece with Siva Travel; dining after-hours in the Vatican or learning to flamenco dance with TTC Europe & UK; a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti with Grosvenor Tours; a visit to a Lizauli village in Namibia with Cullinan Namibia; and a meet and greet with a champion dog musher in Alaska with Destination America.
