Oh … The Places to Know!

Businessman in the Airport

As travel sellers, we have the whole world at our disposal, and can send our clients to any, and every, corner of the globe. While we can send anyone just about anywhere on request, there are some destinations that are customer or personal favorites for which it pays to have a strong working knowledge.

Our specialist programs provide essential, foundational knowledge of a country or region that (combined with your preferred vendor training) can help you transform a client’s vacation to an unforgettable memory.

The Travel Institute’s world of specialist courses include: Alaska, Caribbean, France, Hawaii, India, Mexico, North America, Northern and Central Europe, Southern Europe, Spain and St. Lucia.

Why not build your professional library or start your journey to “specialist” status today!

Destination Spotlight: DS Caribbean

Our popular DS Caribbean course has been fully updated for 2014 and is ready for you to craft unforgettable sunshine holidays. Knowing and sharing what makes a destination special is the key to creating lasting memories and repeat visitors. You can be that irreplaceable resource for your clients – start your journey today!

The BEE is back! The Geography Bee returns with all new questions based on the updated DS Caribbean course. So put on your thinking caps and get ready for a “change in latitude!”

Time for Action - ClockIf you have started a certification program, but you were sidetracked, you can get a set of fresh materials and a new completion date. It is like wiping the slate clean.
