Three of Western Australia’s most respected travel agencies are today pleased to announce an innovative new venture that will see them tackle the issue of rising costs by relocating into new shared business premises in Perth, effective July 2016.
Carol Shaw (Tour de Force Travel), Jan Welch (Sorrento Quay Travel) and Sue Holmes (Carine Travel Bug) will from 4 July 2016 move their businesses into a new shared office in the Perth suburb of Duncraig.
While the three award-winning agencies will continue to function as separate entities they will share the cost of leasing the new office and an office administrator. In addition, the three companies have created a new brand, Elite Travel Group, for use in joint local marketing initiatives, such as product evenings.
The initiative will allow the three agencies to dramatically reduce overheads, and where appropriate combine resources and experience to seize new sales opportunities.
Individually each company boasts decades of travel industry experience, as well as strong alliances with a wide range of partners, including airlines wholesalers and cruise operators.
This new operating model will allow them to share costs, resources and experience, and ultimately enable the principals to more-effectively focus on their core business of selling travel and providing superior customer service to their strong and well-established customer bases.
The new premises will officially open on 4 July 2016 at Carine Quarter Unit 4/473 Beach Road Duncraig, corner of Beach Road and Davallia Road. (Part of the Carine Glades Shopping Complex) https://goo.gl/maps/LzpJk4A9SFH2 (right click link to see map)
