Travel Impressions reports it is expanding its portfolio into the Asian market by offering five fully escorted tours to China through a partnership with Wendy Wu Tours, a specialist tour operator selling group and private tours to China for over 15 years.
To help launch the new China products, Travel Impressions is offering an additional 1 percent commission bonus on all bookings as well as 5 percent commission on all published airfares to China.
As a incentive, the travel agent who books the most trips to China from Aug. 8 - Nov. 30, 2012 will receive a trip for two to the country.
Travel Impressions has partnered with American Airlines to offer consumers a one-day pass to the Admirals Club for the first 50 passengers to book a trip to China with travel on American Airlines.
John Hanratty, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Travel Impressions said: “Our partnership with Wendy Wu Tours enables Travel Impressions to offer escorted and private tours of China with the same level of service that agents and their clients are accustomed to."
Hanratty added, "One of the most important aspects of our relationship with Wendy Wu Tours is their customer service agents supporting our reservations phone lines with their expert knowledge of the destination. When travel agents call our toll-free number to inquire about China itineraries, they will be speaking with a Wendy Wu Tours agent to handle their queries."
