Absolutely Priceless

Trafalgar president Wolf Paunic flatly states this country’s travel agent community should be confident that they’ll always have a loyal ally in the company that he oversees, reports Ian Stalker in this week’s Travel Courier cover story.

And Paunic said that any agents who may be skeptical about that claim need only look at Trafalgar’s track record.

“We keep reaching out to agents and their guests. The dialogue we have with our agents and retail partners is absolutely priceless,” Paunic said, citing the annual Love to Talk Travel gatherings held annually across the country.

Love to Talk Travel attracts both agents, who bring guests interested in seeing the world and the evenings are both informative and entertaining, Paunic stated.

Trafalgar’s entire sales and marketing staff is involved in preparing and hosting Love to Talk Travel.

The tour operator also has just hosted A Winter’s Travel Tales gathering in Toronto, which drew travel industry personnel to an event that featured the woman who penned the New York Times bestseller 1,000 Places to See Before You Die as a guest speaker.

Patricia Schultz has long been a brand ambassador for Trafalgar and told her Toronto audience that those who travel with that tour operator are “pretty much guaranteed of having everything taken care of” on their journeys.
