    Educational Trips.

    Educationals/Familiarisation trips, or loosely called "fam" trips can be a great learning tool for travel professionals. There is no better way of learning about a destination than experiencing it for yourself. We encourage all our colleagues to experience as many different countries as possible to ensure that as a business we are constantly expanding our knowledge base. Educationals do usually involve a lot of hard work, but can be extremely rewarding and worthwhile and an awful lot of fun.


    Service Recognition.

    We value the contribution of all of our colleagues and are delighted that we have such a loyal workforce supporting us as we grow from strength to strength. We are pleased that so many have been with us from the very early stages and so we want to reward our colleagues for their contribution, as we recognise the pivotal role they play in making the Company a successful business.
