Intrav Announces Focus on Upscale, Expeditionary Travel

Intrav on Monday announced a new corporate direction that will focus the company's energies on international upscale and expeditionary travel programs. It said that the sale of its domestic coastal cruisers, Nantucket Clipper and Yorktown Clipper, combined with the support by its new London-based parent company First Choice Holidays, would allow it to target the needs of the sophisticated international traveler. Intrav said it would operate 80 itineraries with more than 230 departures, including river cruises, land programs, safaris and private-jet journeys. "The realities of contemporary travel dictate that we refine our focus founded upon a simple message-consistent delivery of premium service and product to a discerning traveler," Intrav President David Drier said in a statement.
