We are currently in the process of putting the finishing touches to our new consumer magazine which is about to be published in dozens of different editions so that many of our affiliated member agents can customize their copies for the benefit of their customers. One of the features that we’ve included as part of that customization process is that we’ve asked each travel agency owner to reveal some things about themselves that we felt would be relevant to their customers — things like what destinations they’ve visited most, their most recently visited city/country and their favourite destination. It was interesting to note that quite a lot of them had chosen South Africa as their favourite destination in the world as it echoes my sentiments too. Of the approximately 70 countries that I’ve visited so far, South Africa still ranks as probably the best holiday I’ve ever had.
The art of getting a quote that is both competitive in price and relevant to your needs starts with gathering all the right information about what you want to do (or think you want to do!).
