Ensemble Travel Group reports the addition of three new land and destination suppliers to its network of travel providers, including Kensington Tours and Vacation Express in the tour segment and Visit Wales in the destination management category.
Ensemble Travel members gain preferred commission levels, familiarization trips, enhanced customer support, coop marketing and agent booking incentives thanks to these new partnerships.
“We are delighted to welcome these new preferred partners to the Ensemble organization,” said Suzanne Hall, senior director, marketing and development/land products. “While each offers a distinctly different product, they all share in the same goal – and that’s to increase our members’ profitability.”
Supplier overviews cited by Ensemble include:
• Kensington Tours specializes in luxury custom and private guided tours to over 90 countries worldwide. Experienced destination experts on staff are well-versed on all experience and adventure levels, from the brand new and must-sees to the off-the-beaten-path and out-of-this-world FIT vacations.
• Vacation Express is the newest addition to Sunwing Travel Group, a preferred partner of Ensemble Travel Group in Canada for more than 10 years. The company’s new seasonal programs offer non-stop flights from Atlanta, Cincinnati, and Nashville to three of its most popular destinations, in addition to year-round all-inclusive packages to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Costa Rica.
• Visit Wales is the government-sponsored tourism board responsible for marketing Wales both within the U.K. and overseas. Its New York office will provide Ensemble members in the U.S. and Canada with free travel literature, brochures, itineraries, digital photos, DVDs, and agent support. Members who join the Wales Specialist Program will receive a listing on the Visit Wales website.
