Global guided travel company Trafalgar is helping agents make the case for four-season travel, with the announcement of its annual Autumn, Winter, Spring (AWS) sale, available through Trafalgar and sister brand, CostSaver. According to Trafalgar CEO Gavin Tollman, with savings of up to 30% off, the sale is a compelling incentive for agents to share the benefits of year-round travel to travelers and the destinations they visit.
“There are many reasons to travel beyond the peak summer season, from comfortable temps and fewer crowds to great rates. But, of all the reasons to travel year-round, helping clients understand that these benefits also benefit the communities where travelers visit may well be the most important. From protecting iconic sites from the perils of over tourism to spreading the economic bounty of tourism throughout the year, traveling year-round helps safeguard the natural beauty, cultures, and traditions of the people and places we visit,” says Tollman.
As ambassador for his family’s not-for-profit TreadRight Foundation, established and funded as a joint initiative between The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) family of brands that includes Trafalgar and that works to help ensure the environment and communities where TTC companies visit remain vibrant.
Tollman is an authority on sustainable tourism and the necessity to safeguard the natural beauty, cultures, and traditions of the people and places we visit. “We must help our travel agent partners change the narrative from selling travel during specific seasons which, if you’re not booking peak, may sound like a consolation prize, to selling year-round travel,” says Tollman.
Trafalgar’s sister brand—value tour without compromise company CostSaver—is also participating in the AWS sale. In addition to up to 30% off its already cost-conscious prices, clients receive the best rate at the moment of inquiry with CostSaver’s ‘Ready to Go Rates.’
The AWS Sale includes 32 Trafalgar and three CostSaver trips across 23 countries which are described in a single, easy to navigate brochure. Through August 30th, agents may complement the Trafalgar AWS offer with its Early Payment Discount of an additional 7.5% off.
