Tour bookings up for North American luxury travel advisors
Tourism Australia met with agency owners, managers and senior executives at luxury travel network Virtuoso’s annual US and Canada forum, last month in Texas. The event brought together 350 attendees from Virtuoso’s agency members and preferred partners. Virtuoso was focused on setting the stage for travel’s recovery by fostering connections, while emphasising the power of partnerships. Travel advisors felt optimistic for what’s to come in 2022 and indicated that advanced tour bookings are up by 35 per cent when compared to January 2020, while on-site bookings are up 20 per cent.
