Global Travel Collection (GTC) continues to expand its presence, adding 70 new travel advisors to its team in six months. The advisors, 25 of whom are based in the U.K., comprise well-established names in the industry, as well as travel agency newcomers.
"Even though travel is one of the industries that has been most affected by the pandemic, many advisors see the plentiful opportunities for when demand returns," said Angie Licea, president of Global Travel Collection, in a press announcement.
Global Travel Collection, it says, represents the largest community of luxury travel agencies, including the networks of Protravel International, Tzell Travel Group and Colletts Travel, as well as Andrew Harper, In the Know Experiences, All Star Travel Group and R. Crusoe & Son.
Global Travel Collection provides advisors with the support they need to run service-oriented businesses and immersive sophisticated marketing programs to drive business. The scale and influence of Global Travel Collection, as part of Internova Travel Group, also means that advisors have access the industry’s most desirable commercial deals.
In a press release, GTC shared a number of reasons from the new advisors for joining the network. These included: “Their incredible reputation; being a “part of a boutique high-end brand, but [with] access to a larger support structure:” “leading-edge technology;” the “SELECT Hotels & Resorts amenity-driven program” and more.
Good to know: Global Travel Collection’s New to Industry Travel Advisor Bootcamp is relaunching in February. It provides advisors with the knowledge and necessary tools for travel industry entrepreneurs to start and grow a successful travel business.
