The Travel Corporation (TTC) has launched TTC Groups – an exciting new division providing enhanced opportunities for the agent community to kickstart their groups business and help rebuild international sales.

TTC Groups offers agent partners access to an unparalleled range of flexible group solutions, supporting both scheduled departures and custom/special interest group opportunities, all underpinned by the financial assurance of TTC.

Building on the strong reputation for groups service at an individual brand level, TTC Groups Division is a highly skilled team of professionals, with a combined 40+ years’ experience and is led by industry veteran Robyn Brown. If you can dream it, they can create it – providing the guidance, tailored support and tools you need to deliver groups success.

As a collaboration of the TTC family of brands including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Costsaver, Contiki, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, Adventure World Travel and the AAT Kings Group, partner agents can access a choice of over 450 existing trips across 70 countries to power their scheduled group business.

TTC Groups is also the one-stop solution for custom groups and special interest trips for every traveller and travel style. With 101 years of travel experience and 12 Destination Management Companies (DMCs) operating across Europe, The Americas, Africa and South Pacific – including Australia and New Zealand – TTC’s local expertise and strong global footprint make it the world’s largest DMC. Long-standing connections, infrastructure and group buying power deliver both competitive rates and inventory/quality assurances.

“This new groups initiative leverages TTC’s strong range of capabilities, global network reach, buying power and expertise to benefit our partners’ line of business and boost their earnings,” says David Hosking, CEO Australia, The Travel Corporation.

“TTC is the only company that can serve as a one-stop shop to deliver across a broad range of categories from youth, premium, contemporary, luxury, river cruising, to adventure in the group space, both internationally and here in Australia and New Zealand,” he adds.

“The world has changed and TTC is committed to partnering with trade to not only build back business but create new profitable opportunities in the groups space.”

Why TTC Groups? As specialists in designing custom itineraries, and with so many scheduled itineraries to choose from, the new TTC Groups division offers an opportunity for partner agents to create their own ‘travel bubbles’ and take advantage of the flexibility, buying power and global reach of TTC’s capabilities. All of this is backed up by over 100 years of experience, a commitment to making a difference and peerless service and expertise. TTC offers flexible booking arrangements and is committed to guests’ wellbeing with updated protocols and the best 24/7 care teams.

Why Now? Covid-19 has provided an environment that maximises groups’ potential for agent partners to pivot into this profitable and rewarding space as a foundation for rebuilding their business. Groups are an effective way of creating substantial mid- and long-term revenue pipelines with very few resources.
