Trafalgar on 11 March 2019 announced 100% Definite Departures on Europe & Britain trips for the 2019 Europe & Britain summer season. “We know it’s been a challenging sales year for our agent partners with high consumer interest yet a later booking window, so we are going 100% definite to help our valued partners close the sale and reassure their clients that now is the best time to book.” says Gavin Tollman, Trafalgar’s CEO.
“Travellers globally are craving reassurance, which they will always get with Trafalgar. With our existing deposit guarantees, our extensive range of 100+ award-winning European trips and our 4.7/5 independent Feefo rating, now combined with our 100% definite departure status, agent partners can sell us with 100% confidence,” Tollman says.
There are no second chances when it comes to a great holiday, and more than ever before, travellers are seeking out brands with a great record of delivering, quality rich experiences that fulfill their travel dreams, connecting them to the real soul of the places they visit to provide them with lasting travel memories.
Trafalgar offers guests a multi-dimensional travel experience, delivering travel moments that open up a destination like no other brand can offer. Guests will discover at a grassroots level how choosing Trafalgar is making a genuine and visible impact to people and the places we visit. Through JoinTrafalgar experiences, travellers support World Heritage Listed Sites on 63% of trips, such as supporting the UKs National Trust to protect places like the White Cliffs of Dover in Britain and Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland. On selected Trafalgar trips, guests also visit female artisans at social enterprises and itineraries are planned to encourage visits to lesser known communities, encourage tourism dispersal to ensure more people go beyond the iconic attractions.
Add to this being the creators of the original local travel experience, Be My Guest, celebrating 10 years in 2019. Exclusive to Trafalgar, guests will immerse themselves in a destination through visiting the homes of our hosts, to learn and discover the culture of a place over good conversation and local flavours. For 2019, there are over 100 Be My Guest experiences worldwide, allow guests to connect with the locals.
Cultural experiences like cooking lessons, after-hours dining at the Vatican are other experiences Trafalgar’s guests can look forward to, as well as travelling with real ease thanks to all the logistics being taken care of.
“We are always AgentsFirst, and by making our trips 100% Definite Departure status, alongside our great offers right now with up to 15% off all May departures for our Europe & Britain departures, Trafalgar is the only choice to truly deliver on fulfilling one’s travel dreams” Tollman concluded.
