Increase Your Groups With TTC

Operator Offering Training Sessions, Incentives For Group Bookings

The Travel Corporation (TTC) Groups Department launched a brand-new group sales incentive to help its Canadian travel agent partners restart travel through groups.

Agents who book a new group with Trafalgar, Costsaver, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold or Contiki from now through June 30, 2021 will receive a bonus commission of CDN$250 for booking groups of more than nine guests, CDN$750 for groups of 15+ and CDN$1,000 for groups with 20+ guests.

As travel begins to rebound, TTC recognizes group sales will be an important revenue driver for the travel advisor community.

To help travel advisors prepare for a most successful comeback, Nick Roberti, director of group business development for TTC Groups Canada, is hosting a two-part virtual webinar for all agents interested in learning how to expand their groups portfolios.

Roberti observed that: “It’s no secret ‘bubble travel’ and ‘group travel’ have been at the forefront of client trends and TTC recognizes the important role groups bookings will play in this recovery period.”

He pointed out that: “We want to help our valued Canadian Agents with this sales incentive so they can boost their earnings, and we’re hosting these webinars to serve as tools to provide them strategic tactics to grow their business for years to come.”

The first session will be hosted on Fri., March 19, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. and will introduce advisors to the new and enhanced TTC Groups department. TTC Groups is comprised of Costsaver, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Contiki’s groups departments, combined into one powerful, supportive and collaborative department.
