Not Just Travel is planning exclusive overseas trips for its consultants following the success of its inaugural trips earlier in the year.

Trips planned for 2020 include a ski trip to Canada to take place from March 3-13, and from May 6-13, consultants are invited to Costa Rica. Further trips planned include Dubai, Thailand, Tuscany and Jordan.

Steve Witt, co-founder of Not Just Travel said: “We’d noticed that once they’d attended one of our trips, they were left wanting more. So last year we created the Not Just Travel trip and they proved to be a massive success.

“They clearly work, so it makes sense that we build on our trips programme for the new year and make them into an integral part of our educational offering and Not Just Travel experience.”

Not Just Travel held its first trips over the last 18 months to Banff, Antigua and St Lucia.

Witt said: “They’re different to the usual fam trips that you see in the travel industry.

“Our trips give consultants a real sense of what it’s like to holiday in a destination. In fact, they’re a mix of an educational and a real holiday. Consultants come back having had a fabulous time and, as such, become real advocates for the destination. And that’s why they can go on and sell them so easily.”

All trips are chargeable but costs to those attending are kept to a minimum.

Witt added: “The idea is that consultants easily recoup their money through subsequent sales. On our last skiing trip to Canada, one of our travel consultants received an enquiry of around £120,000 because she was able to describe Whistler so passionately to her client.”
