Peru, Germany or Thailand? Contiki has announced it will host four unique, open age fam trips for travel agents this year.
Showcasing the breadth of its global offering, Contiki will be hosting agents who have completed the mandatory “short, snackable” size training modules on its Contiki U E-learning Training courses, through three separate continents.
The first fam will be held in Peru May 12-18, with the company’s “Germany Slovenia & Croatia Sailing” trip taking place simultaneously (May 13-19); followed by a “Thailand FAM” Sept. 23-29 and ending 2018 with its annual “Christmas Market & Ski FAM” in Germany and Austria Dec. 8-14.
Each trip has been designed exclusively for agents, with the focus of showcasing as many of the Contiki experiences as possible. Agents who attend the “Germany Slovenia & Croatia Sailing” trip will be the first to experience sailing along the pristine Dalmatian coastline on a Contiki exclusive boat – which has never been offered on an agent fam in the past.
In Thailand, agents will experience one of Contiki’s best-selling trips – a destination they have been asking for and which Contiki is happy to offer. In addition, agents will also be among the first to visit the newly refurbished Gasthof in Austria – which underwent a massive re-design to better serve clients. Interested agents of all ages and regions are encouraged to apply soon as space is limited.
To be eligible, agents must have completed the mandatory Contiki U E-learning training courses. To apply, agents will be required to tell Contiki, in 100 words or more, how they plan to increase their Contiki sales after completing their chosen fam, and send their applications to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than March 16 for the two trips departing in May; by June 30 for Thailand; and Oct. 1 for the Christmas Market fam.
“We couldn’t be more excited to host agents around the world à la Contiki this year,” says Sheralyn Berry, vice-president of sales for Contiki Canada. “Our fam’s are legendary for not only allowing agents to experience Contiki for themselves, but they are known the world over for allowing life-long friendships to be made. What better way to kick start 2018 than by visiting some of the world’s most beautiful locations?”
For more information, agents are asked to contact their local sales manager.
