Commenting on the new AWS programme, Matthew Cameron-Smith, Trafalgar Australia MD said: “We’re delighted to present our most comprehensive AWS programme to date. We’ve listened to feedback from both our trade partners and our guests and the result is an all-encompassing selection of holidays that appeal to a diversity of travellers, within a range of differing budgets. With more choice than ever, not only will our guests find a travel style to suit every taste, agents also have more scope for securing year-round commission.
With the increasing success of our CostSaver and City Explorer programmes we are excited to include these trips for the first-time ever, thereby offering an unrivalled breadth of off-season travel opportunities for 2016/2017. Added to that our independent and un-curated reviews, with an average rating of 97%, not only gives our agents the ability to provide their clients with a choice of off-season destinations but the absolute confidence to sell them.”
