Other travel businesses can white label and tailor services to their own customers
The Travel Corporation (TTC) has created a new Destination Management Company (DMC) portfolio to bring together a programme of 12 DMCs from within its 40 global travel brands, offering holidays, local experiences, corporate travel and other services across Africa, Europe, the Americas and the South Pacific, which other travel companies can tailor and white label.
It’s the first time that the umbrella corporation – whose brands include Trafalgar, Contiki, Red Carnation Hotels and Uniworld Boutique River Cruises – has brought together these services for other travel businesses to white label and tailor to their own customers. While these services were already available, this new platform streamlines the process and makes TTC’s offering of ground handling services to corporate or leisure businesses more accessible.
Among the escorted holidays, hotel, day tours and river cruising that TTC is known for, the portfolio includes bespoke services such as sunrise visits to Uluru with AAT Kings, husky sledding in Alaska with Destination America and Truffle hunting in Greece with Siva Travel. The DMC programme is available for English-speaking markets and offers group trips in many other languages, including Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and several European languages.
“During the uncertainty of the pandemic, we spoke to a number of our partners who were looking for an operational solution with the quality, knowledge, infrastructure, consistency and financial resilience to deliver on the ground in a new post-pandemic world – but they were hitherto unaware of the depth and breadth of TTC’s Destination Management portfolio,” said Gavin Tollman, president of TTC.
“They were excited when they realised we could provide that solution across multiple destinations worldwide, affording them deeper access to the award-winning expertise and service for which our brands are well recognised. By launching a dedicated website and a series of new tools outlining the extent of our offering, and the financial strength that supports it, we hope to be able to present this hassle-free and risk-free opportunity to a wider range of leisure and corporate travel businesses.”
