Collette Says "No" to Discounts

Collette Vacations issued a formal directive last week prohibiting travel agencies from rebating its products in any way. "As a show of support for the many, many agencies across the country that have supported Collette for the past 89 years, we are proud to take a stand against discounting," says Dan Sullivan, president and chief executive officer for the company. "We realize that many larger agencies are offering booking discounts on escorted tour products—but at Collette we want to do whatever we can to ensure that the playing field remains level for the traditional, local, brick-and-mortar travel agencies that our travelers so depend upon." As part of the policy, no one will be able to publicly advertise discounts on Collette products.
