Travel content platform aims to grow trade partnerships over the next 12 months
Culture Trip offers agents commission to sell Trips portfolio of escorted tours
Travel website Culture Trip has launched Trips by Culture Trip – a collection of 30 small-group escorted tours in the UK and overseas.
They are available at culturetrip.com/trips and are bookable by agents who will be offered a “competitive commission”.
Agents can contact a dedicated support team which can answer questions about the itineraries and take bookings.
Trips by Culture Trip plans to expand its trade offering over the next 12 months with the introduction of a dedicated business development team to build trade partnerships.
The tours are led by “local insiders” and feature “hyper-local experiences and authentic activities” combined with accommodation that is locally owned where possible.
The first departures will be at the end of 2021 and will feature up to 18 travellers aged 25 and over who can join solo or with friends.
They range from four to 13 days, with prices from £857 and themes include Discovery, Active, City Break and Wellness.
Geraint Hamer, Culture Trip’s tours, packages and wholesale vice-president, who is leading Trips, said: “We know that many consumers will look to their trusted travel agent to book which is why we plan to build strong relationships with the trade and grow together.
“For launch, we have our dedicated customer support team – all with a background in trade – on hand to support agents through the booking process.
“In return, agents will get a competitive commission and the opportunity to book customers on a group travel adventure built for a post-Covid world.”
