Become A Pioneer With Explora Journeys

Explora Journeys has unveiled its new Pioneers status for travel advisors.

Pioneers recognizes and rewards travel advisors who have embraced the Explora Journeys brand from the start and have booked at least one journey for their discerning clients during the brand’s inaugural year of operation.

The Pioneers status offers an invitation for a travel advisor and a guest to join a complimentary Educational Insider First Look journey between July 17, 2023, and May 31, 2024, as well as access to Explora Journeys’ Travel Advisor Fares for personal travel.

The brand also provides special referral benefits for engaging with other travel advisors and referring them to Explora Journeys, including a bonus commission on all new bookings made by the referred travel advisor in 2023.

As Explora Journeys approaches the Maiden Journey of its first luxury ship, EXPLORA I, on July 17, 2023, from Southampton, UK for a 15-night journey into the Norwegian fjords and the Arctic Circle concluding in Copenhagen, Denmark, the brand’s ongoing commitment to the success and happiness of its travel advisor community remains paramount. The Pioneers initiative is one way the brand is demonstrating its appreciation for their continuous support.

Chris Austin, Chief Sales Officer of Explora Journeys, said: “Our travel advisor community is the heart and soul of our industry, and from day one, we have been bold in creating industry-first initiatives to support not only our success but also theirs. We are sincerely grateful to our Pioneers and proud to equip them with the right tools to support the growth of their business and our mutual success.”
