Travel Bound launches Beach Collection 2016 with trip giveaway

NEW YORK — FIT specialist Travel Bound has introduced its Beach Collection 2016 featuring more than 6,000 hotels in sun destinations worldwide.

A new global Beach Collection brochure, available in print and digitally at rbs.gta-travel.com/ca/beach to share with clients, features a portfolio of properties in Hawaii, Florida, the California coast, the Middle East, South East Asia, as well as expanded coverage in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, Turkey, Egypt, the Indian Ocean, Caribbean and Mexico.

“The beach initiative is in direct response to customer demand. Agents often link Travel Bound with city breaks or pre-and-post cruise add-ons, and this new beach collection addresses a customer need while also serving to broaden the perception of Travel Bound’s product offering,” said Travel Bound President James Phillips.

“Designed to provide inspiration as much as information, Travel Bound’s new Beach Collection brochure showcases the range of properties across price points – from five-star luxury to family value – in stunning destinations around the world,” he added.

Travel Bound is offering select partners the opportunity to receive a co-branded version of the e-brochure to be used as a tool to directly engage with their clients. “Travel Bound never sells direct to consumers, so our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our customers to close business, and as such are always challenging ourselves to find new ways to create value for our customer network,” said Phillips.

Travel Bound has tapped the in-market expertise of its Beach Market Managers to provide travel tips in each destination including major calendar events and activities along with recommendations for sightseeing, shopping excursions and more. Available airport transfers as well as tours in the most popular destinations, which are also fully commissionable, are also included.

To celebrate the launch of the Beach Collection 2016 Travel Bound will award one vacation for two to a different destination each week through Feb. 21.  For each booking of US$500 or more agents are automatically entered into a drawing to win stays to resorts in Mexico, Jamaica, Hawaii, Florida and California.

One grand prize trip of a five-night stay at the San Marco Hotel in Mykonos with airfare for two and transfers will be awarded at the end of the six-week promotional period.

“Our research tells us that almost half of our travel agent customers see a real opportunity to sell beach to their clients during the winter, so this renewed focus on beach content is our response to that feedback,” said Philips.  “We expect to see continued growth to more offer upwards of 10,000 beach hotels by the end of 2017.” For more details on Travel Bound visit gotravelbound.com.
