NEW ERA: TravelOnly, Ensemble partnering

TravelOnly and the Ensemble Travel Group have unveiled an exclusive partnership deal. The move comes following TravelOnly’s “extensive review of its supply partner relationships,” that was conducted “in an effort to improve its product and service offerings.” The new relationship with Ensemble — launched Nov. 1, 2012 — provides TravelOnly and its travel associates with a number of new and unique offerings for the Canadian travel marketplace — ranging from exclusive product, to marketing, channels of distribution and unique training opportunities. Gregory Luciani, president and CEO of TravelOnly, said of the partnership: “We are absolutely thrilled with our newly formed partnership with Ensemble. Given our company’s unique business model, our diverse team of over 500 travel associates and the work we’ve done over the past 24 months to heighten our brands awareness and proposition to the Canadian consumer, this announcement couldn’t come at a better time.” Ensemble’s coverage of the Canadian marketplace — it has offices in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto — allows it to deliver products while leveraging the strength of its North American structure, empowering TravelOnly to deliver best-in-class products and services to the Canadian travel consumer. Lindsay Pearlman, co-president of Ensemble Travel Group, observed that: “As Canada’s largest independent full-service consortia, we are excited to welcome TravelOnly to the Ensemble family. That they chose our organization confirms we continue to offer a strong value proposition; from our dedication to building the individual agency brand to providing the right tools and services that help them achieve success.” TravelOnly indicated that over the coming weeks, the full details of the newly formed relationship will be released to the travel industry and the consumer marketplace.
