Not Just Travel took 30 agents on a week-long trip to Mauritius as part of its Elite Experience programme of business coaching.
The group participated in several training activities, listened to talks from entrepreneurs and consultants, and learned strategies and tools to help them better sell trips as part of the Elite Experiences programme, which aims to teach agents entrepreneurial skills and methods to boost profitability.
In addition, agents enjoyed catamaran sailing trips, a treasure hunt around Grand Baie in the north of the country, and a car rally.
The group was hosted by the company’s key trade partners Air Mauritius and Beachcomber Tours, and visited all eight of the luxury Beachcomber resorts and hotels.
Steve Witt, co-founder of Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise, said: “We packed a phenomenal amount into seven days. Our consultants are now well-equipped and eager to go out and sell Beachcomber holidays. Mauritius will be one of the up an coming destinations for 2023-24.
“It’s a proven recipe: we take our consultants away to amazing destinations to make them authorities on destinations and products through an immersive experience. Then we layer on invaluable entrepreneur training from true entrepreneurs who have made millions in their careers. Finally, we add in coaching and support from top travel consultants who are already creating annual sales of millions of pounds.
“Our consultants learn from the best and go on to earn three of four times the income.”
Sarah Archer, UK sales manager for Beachcomber Tours, added: “Several of the group confirmed bookings while on the island and we know we’re going to see many more now that we’ve returned.”
