A gift of time from Tauck

With the release of its new Exotics brochure, the 2013 booking season is now underway. The new brochure features Tauck’s trips to Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, Australia and Antarctica. And with the debut of the new program, Tauck has also announced the details of its 2013 Gift of Time offer and the addition of complimentary in-room internet access to all land journeys. Tauck CEO Dan Mahar said: “Along with our European river cruises, our Exotics portfolio has consistently been one of the fastest-growing areas of our business. Equally important, our Exotics trips generate strong profits for those agents who sell them aggressively. Mahar pointed out that Tauck’s Exotics are “premium-quality, bucket list” itineraries that carry a higher average price, and therefore, pay higher agent commissions. As well, agents can further encourage repeat Tauck business with the company’s Gift of Time offer which gives returning Tauck guests more of what they seek in their travels — time in their destination of choice — by letting them extend their 2013 journey with a complimentary hotel night. Guests can choose to redeem their free night at either the beginning or end of their Tauck journey, at the hotel normally featured on the first or last night of their itinerary. The complimentary Gift of Time hotel night is offered on all 2013 departures of Tauck’s land tours, river cruises and ocean cruises, and it is available only to returning Tauck guests. The offer does not apply to Tauck Events, and other conditions apply. Go to for more.
