Get on track with rail holidays
This month we look at the world’s greatest train journeys, from snaking through Australia’s Red Centre on The Ghan, to following in the footsteps of Alexander the Great on the Persian Express. There is a rail journey to suit everyone, whether it’s the vintage splendour of Tren Crucero in Ecuador, or the culinary luxury aboard Japan’s Seven Stars Kyushu.
For your eyes only – our agents’ section...
This month we hear about readers’ African adventures in Namibia and South Africa, keep you up to date on travel trade competitions, and see what you have been up to in our ‘Been there, done that’ photo gallery. Make sure you check out Talking Shop for all the latest trade-specific news, views, incentives and training.
Focus on upping your commission
You may have noticed our new ‘focus on…’ features which look at the nuts and bolts of selling travel, rather than the exotic destinations which usually fill our pages! It may not be as glamorous but it sure is important to learn how to sell car hire, holiday extras, or attraction and theatre tickets. And this month, read about using accommodation finders.
