LEADING Asia expert Wendy Wu Tours has launched its 2017 program with brochures being distributed across Australia. This also marks the launch of its new trade concept ‘Booking Asia Made Easy’ with the return of the much-loved animated Wendy character.
The concept has been developed to reinforce the ease of booking with the operator. General Manager Andrew Mulholland said ‘we understand how busy the day gets, knowing that a booking can be secured within moments and everything taken care of from flights to visas, not only does it help take the complexity out of booking arrangements, but also demonstrates the value our holidays provide customers and trade partners alike.
Our product services complex destinations, destinations that offer once in a lifetime experiences. Due to the infrastructure we have on the ground, the quality is guaranteed, this is incredibly important on the ‘road less travelled’ which we consider our specialty’.
The inspiration behind the new cartoon design, ‘Kung Fu Wendy’ has been modelled on founder Wendy Wu. ‘Those who have met Wendy know how enthusiastic she is about Asia, offering travel experiences to the Australian traveller and supporting our agent partners. We think the Kung Fu concept is rather fitting’, says Mulholland.
The introduction of touring categories in the 2016 program has proved highly successful and has prompted the operator to create seven new Discovery tours and four new Deluxe tours across the product range.
A selection of these new tours, such as the 18-day ‘China & Spiritual Tibet’ deluxe tour or the Indian ‘Trans Himalayan’ discovery tour are included the ‘2017 Free Stopover’ campaign, which allows agents to offer clients a free two-night stopover in Singapore. Other free stopover destinations on offer include Hong Kong and Siem Reap when booked in conjunction with an extensive range of tours over 14 days.
All brochures are currently being delivered to agencies by TIFS.
