Titan Travel is expanding its independent travel division Connections with the launch of three new destinations.

The first dedicated Far East programme includes a selection of tailor-made and multi-centre holidays, which lead in at £1,395 per person with 12% commission.

Other additions to the collection include a US brochure, available from October 26, and an Italy programme from November 23.

Now on sale, the Connections Canada and Alaska 2008 brochure incorporates Titan’s All Canada brand with more tours and some reduced prices.

Each brochure also has a new Connections logo and a cleanerlook to help it stand out on agency racks.

The company reported strong sales on its recently redesigned Grand River Cruise collection, claiminga 100% increase in two years.

It is also offering discounts of up to £200 on holidays bookedbefore October 31.

For a minimum spend, all Connections customers are offered a VIP home departures service, offering transport to and from the airport at no extra cost.

Titan managing director Martin Coe said: “This is a big draw, especially for older people who don’t live near an airport. It takes the stress out of their holiday.”
