International buyers and media that have registered to attend the Fiji Tourism Expo (FTE) 2015 will be offered Familiarisation (famil) Tours of Fiji facilitated by Tourism Fiji’s International Visitor Program (IVP) in June.
A famil is an educational tour allowing international travel agents and media to get to know the destination and products and services it has to offer – in this case Fiji.
The IVP team from Tourism Fiji has released their famil itineraries for FTE 2015 on the FTE website today. There are 15 famil programmes on offer, taking international visitors to all over Fiji.
Tourism Fiji’s Manager IVP, Ms Inise Mucunabitu says, “Tourism Fiji has tailor made itineraries for international guests according to the specific niches and covering most parts of Fiji. Through the support offered by our local industry partners, we are able to showcase our diverse products and services.”
And for the first time Tourism Fiji has also included self-drive famils which have been sponsored by AVIS. The self-drive famils will include AVIS’s brand new RAV4’s for five days and the self-drive itineraries will take participants all around the main island of Fiji.
AVIS Station Manager West, Ms Eleanor Tabakaucoro says, “Self-drive is the best way to see the real Fiji, it takes international visitors off the beaten track and allows them to disperse tourism dollars to a broader community”
She adds, “By self-driving they can stop where they want when they want. We are very pleased by the initiative of Tourism Fiji to include self-drive tours in their famils for FTE.”
