Destination Canada to offer Travel Agent Fams across Canada
Been tuning in to the BBC 1 series Race Across the World (Starting March 22nd) , starring the majestic Canadian scenery and feeling inspired to update your Canada knowledge?
Destination Canada has teamed up with industry partners to get you out there so you can recreate your own version of the series but you’ll need to get your running shoes on.
There are 20 places on offer across 4 fams (5 agents on each) for those agents who have completed our Canada Travel Specialist Agent training programme to Platinum Level. We have partnered with Prestige Travel , Air Canada, Air Transat, Rocky Mountaineer, Destination Ontario, Via Rail, and Travel Alberta with fams in July, Late September and into October this year to give agents a taste of the true Canadian iconic classics.
In addition and in partnership with First Class Holidays we are offering 10 agents the chance to brush up on their Montreal knowledge (departing 26th May) . At just £299 each for you and your partner, the package includes return Air Canada Economy flights , 3 nights in downtown Montreal, passes for City sight seeing tour. For £499 each an additional 10 agents will secure return flights to Vancouver (departing 13th October) , 3 nights in Vancouver, 3 in Whistler and attraction passes in both locations for you and your partner.
“At Destination Canada we are passionate about getting travel agents out to Canada. We have built out 4 Canada specialist FAM trips this year for agents to experience the beauty of Canada. Last year in partnership with First Class Holidays we sent 55 travel agents to Toronto for a weekend city break for £299 each with their partners. This year we are offering trips to Montreal and Whistler/Vancouver at a favourable price. In our opinion nothing beats experiencing a destination for yourself and being able to enjoy it with your partner makes it an even more genuine experience. Your choice if you want to Race each other whilst there.”, said Adam Hanmer, Travel Trade Manager, Destination Canada, UK.
