How does your company compare to competitors? Our niche is FIT in Europe, Latin America & Asia. We are the “one stop shop” which literally makes the process more streamlined and convenient for the Travel Advisor. Our small boutique hotels are hand picked and we have a “3 strikes you’re out” rule to remove the hotel from the inventory if we get 3 legitimate complaints that haven’t been resolved. Avanti sends our reservation consultants to the destinations the travel advisors are calling about offering fresh and current info.
Company Key Website Features The website is in phase one of two reconstruction. It is still a very functioning booking engine and the goal is to make it as simple and intuitive for advisors as possible. The e-brochure feature is a wonderful resource for advisors and clients alike.
Travel Advisor Marketing Suggestions The website offers the ability to download our “day by day itinerary” suggested vacation packages across our footprint of destinations. It serves as a wonderful resource for the advisors to use our PDF suggested itineraries as a marketing tool to inspire their clients to explore many areas for independent travel. Also, the itineraries that are sent to the clients include a hyperlink that takes the client to the description of tours & hotels. Nothing to worry about because Avanti doesn’t sell directly to consumers.
