The Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) has launched a series of podcasts.

The broadcasts, which aim to provide a sample of trips and experiences for travellers, feature a number of AITO members including Explore, InsideJapan Tours and Sunvil Holidays.

Destinations covered include the Azores, the Caribbean, Cyprus, Eastern Europe, France, Greece, India, Tanzania and Venezuela.

AITO chairman Derek Moore said, “Leading the way, for example by embracing new technology that is attractive yet useful to travellers, is a key aim for AITO.

“Ensuring the content is relevant yet light-hearted is important as we want consumers to download each new recording as it comes online.”
