Star Alliance Gives Agents Chance To Win Two Round The World Tickets

May 16, 2014 Agents Incentives No Comments Email Email

The Star Alliance network is giving Australian travel agents the chance to win two Round the World (RTW) tickets to celebrate the launch today of its newly expanded and more flexible range of RTW fares*.

The world’s largest airline alliance today unveiled four additional RTW fare levels, providing globetrotters with the option of enjoying lower prices by taking fewer stopovers or reducing their total mileage to suit their individual travel needs.

In Economy Class, RTW fare levels are now determined through a combination of total number of stops and total mileage used.

Until now, higher mileage levels in Economy Class – 29,000, 34,000 or 39,000 miles – allowed a maximum of 15 stops. But with the new fare levels, customers can select fewer stops in return for a lower price. For example, a traveller using a 29,000 mileage RTW ticket can now opt to make only seven stops and save around AUD$400 (excluding taxes and surcharges).

In Business Class passengers can now select a lower fare covering up to 26,000 miles (compared to the previous minimum of 29,000 miles) and save more than AUD$1800 (excluding taxes and surcharges). The number of stops allowed remains unchanged for all Business Class RTW fare levels, with a minimum of three to a maximum of 15 stops.

With RTW fares a popular option for Australian travellers, Star Alliance – in partnership with award-winning eLearning specialist OTT – has created a new online training program specifically designed to help Australian travel agents learn more about the new RTW fare levels.

The new Star Alliance Experts program offers five training modules designed to enhance understanding of the new RTW fares, along with some of Star Alliance’s other innovative products and services.

Travel agents who complete the training course before 25 June 2014 are automatically in the running to win two Star Alliance RTW tickets. In addition, each week every agent enrolled in the training program has the chance to win Westfield vouchers valued at $100.
