The man who oversees Trafalgar’s Canadian office is proud that there’s an unshakeable bond between his tour operator and the travel agency community, reports Ian Stalker in this week’s issue of Canadian Travel Press.
Wolf Paunic says Trafalgar is committed to delivering “top-notch support” to agents, which helps explain Trafalgar’s remarkable success in Agents’ Choice Awards, winning the Motorcoach tour operator category year-in and year-out.
“Agents’ Choice Awards are in a way the Canadian travel industry’s ‘Oscars’ and we do not take our historical success lightly,” Paunic says. “In the ever-changing world of travel, the Trafalgar brand has been consistently delivering quality experiences to clients, along with timely and honest support to our retail partners. We are patently aware of the fact that the awards are earned and as a brand we have to prove our value to the agents and clients alike, every day and all of the time.”
Paunic notes that last year saw Trafalgar host the global “Acclaim” trip and Gala en Rouge, attended by top-selling agents from around the world. Affiliated Costsaver had its own version of the top achievers’ trip, which is now called Crew.
“I am proud to say that in 2019 we hosted over 20 Canadian travel agents in South Africa for Acclaim and Vietnam for Crew. Loyal Canadian travel agents who support Trafalgar and Costsaver in 2020 are eligible to earn a spot on both trips.”
