Travel Agent News

Millennials driving travel agents' resurgence

The millennial market is contributing heavily to the latest increase in agent demand, in part because younger travelers are focused on experiences and would rather have someone else find the best options and deals for them. Millennials are also big fans of cruises and foreign trips.

Community-service vacations appeal to younger travelers

Agents are well-positioned to help young travelers experience community-focused trips by linking their clients with volunteer projects at socially conscious destinations. "Millennials are making money now, and they're saying, 'Let's travel, but do some good, have a positive social impact,'" said Josh Cameron of CV Humanitarian Travel.

Become a Club Med Ski Specialist

Now is the time to brush up on your knowledge of unique winter travel.

Two things that aren't readily apparent when skiing comes to mind are China and Skiers. But China is quickly becoming the hot spot for skiers and Club Med is ensuring everyone can take part in the trend by opening a second ski resort in China.

All 23 Club Med ski resorts, which span the European Alps to Japan, offer the brand's signature all-inclusive amenities, including accommodations, meals and ski lessons.
