Trafalgar Goes Global With Acclaim

Trafalgar, has announced that its annual agent incentive trip, Acclaim, will visit the brand’s newest destination of Africa in 2019 – carrying forward a legacy of 72 years, the journey pays homage to the Tollman family’s roots.

The hottest ticket in town, Acclaim is already renowned for showcasing destinations to top performing agents, but in 2019 it has a new twist: for the first time the incentive is going global, with agents from all of Trafalgar’s sales regions having the chance to be part of the industry’s greatest incentive trip.

To get things off to a flying start, with Trafalgar’s 10% Early Payment Discount (EPD) expiring on the Jan. 31, now is the time for agents to lock in bookings for 2019 travel, to be in the running for a place on this trip of a lifetime.

The 10-day experience in seven destinations will once again see winners treated to Trafalgar’s incredible travel experiences with plenty of VIP surprises along the way.

Gavin Tollman, CEO of Trafalgar, said: “We are #AgentsFirst and we recognize the importance of providing our valued partners with an opportunity to experience first-hand the incredible experiences and moments that Trafalgar offers their customers as well as our brand innovation. With our seven brand-new African itineraries now launched and off to an extraordinary start, it was the perfect choice to take Acclaim to South Africa in 2019.”

Hailing from South Africa, the destination is particularly special to Tollman, who is excited and proud to unveil the destination to Trafalgar’s Acclaim winners.

Said Tollman: “Africa sits very high on many people’s wish-list, but until you go there, you don’t really understand how it’s going to change you. It’s one of those places that, when you leave it, you understand the very essence of the reason we travel.”

He pointed out that: “The Acclaim trip is renowned as the industry’s best trade incentive. And with us returning to our family’s roots, our agent partners are guaranteed that this will be an extraordinary trip, to an extraordinary destination, that will be spoken about for years to come. We are pulling out all the stops.”

With each Trafalgar booking, agents will be one step closer to securing their spot Acclaim 2019. Agents in the running will receive a monthly maildrop to advise whether they’re in the running or can visit the Trafalgar Tribe Facebook page to keep up to date on how to get in on the action and where it will take them.

“The greatest excitement I have is to give our travel partners the opportunity to encounter this special country in our own local and unique way. It is my hope, and certainly my intent, to ensure they feel Africa in a way that only Africans understand; so that they too may say sanibonani South Africa,” Tollman concluded.
