As part of its commitment, Trafalgar encourages agents across India, including Tier II and III cities, to become partners and participate in workshops.
Nicholas Lim, President, Trafalgar, Asia, was in India recently as part of Trafalgar’s inaugural ‘Europe Britain Day’ that travelled to Mumbai and Bengaluru along with four NTOs – Atout France, Tourism Ireland, Tourism Office of Spain and Switzerland Tourism. Lim says that it is part of its commitment to travel agents, not just in India but around world. He adds, “Our AgentsFirst motto is more relevant in India than any other country we operate in because almost 99 per cent of our business here is through the agents.” While this edition of ‘Insider Sessions’ with the four NTOs travelled only to metros, Lim says that not just big cities but even tier II and III cities of India are important for Trafalgar. “This year our commitment is to the trade with AgentsFirst, regardless of size and city and we will be more than happy to partner with those who would like to work with us. This is exactly where we want to continue to grow along with our travel agent partners,” Lim adds.

Trafalgar’s definite departures now extend to 17 countries and five continents. Following its announcement of 100 per cent definite departures to Italy, Ireland, Hawaii and Discoveries, Trafalgar has extended these guarantees to departures covering Europe, Asia, Africa, and North and South America.
Lim comments, “We believe that success breeds success, so we thank our partners for the role they’ve played in the positive results. When it comes to closing sales for 2018, there truly is no time like the present to reap the rewards.”
