The Travel Corporation (TTC) Groups Department has launched a new group sales incentive to help Canadian travel agents partners restart travel through groups. 

Agents who book a new group with Trafalgar, Costsaver, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold or Contiki from now through June 30, 2021 will receive a bonus commission of $250 CAD for booking groups of more than nine guests, $750 CAD for groups of 15+ and $1,000 CAD for groups with 20+ guests (terms and conditions).

As travel begins to rebound, TTC recognizes group sales will be an important revenue driver for the travel advisor community. 

Join the webinars

To help the trade prepare for a successful comeback, Nick Roberti, director of group business development for TTC Groups Canada, is hosting a two-part virtual webinar for all advisors interested in learning how to expand their groups portfolios.

 “It’s no secret ‘bubble travel’ and ‘group travel’ have been at the forefront of client trends and TTC recognizes the important role groups bookings will play in this recovery period,” said Roberti. “We want to help our valued Canadian agents with this sales incentive so they can boost their earnings, and we’re hosting these webinars to serve as tools to provide them strategic tactics to grow their business for years to come."  

The first session will be hosted on Friday, March 19, 2021 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. and will introduce advisors to the new and enhanced TTC Groups department. 

TTC Groups is comprised of Costsaver, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Contiki’s groups departments, combined into one powerful, supportive and collaborative department.
