Well-Being Travel – Selling More Than a Vacation

Well-Being customers seek more than a relaxing get-away — they travel with the goal of creating a lasting, positive change in their lives. You can be part of their transformation by being able to cater to their unique travel needs and guide their final destination decision.

Throughout May we are spotlighting Well-Being Travel as a new and thriving niche market. In addition to our popular Well-Being Travel Specialist course, we invite you to register for a great introductory/informational session about Wellness Travel with Anne Dimon (see below). Watch our weekly Hot Tip Tuesday newsletter for information about the upcoming Well-Being Travel Symposium this June.
