TTC Tour Brands, Tourism Switzerland, Announce New FAM Focusing on Sustainable Travel

TTC Tour Brands, in partnership with Tourism Switzerland, is inviting top advisors from around the world to apply for a chance to travel on an educational, custom trip showcasing offerings from Trafalgar, Costsaver, Insight Vacations and Luxury Gold in Switzerland. The trip will focus on each brand’s "Make Travel Matter" Experiences to help advisors introduce sustainable travel options - "Swisstainable experiences" -  to their clients interested in travelling to Switzerland.

“We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Tourism Switzerland and having the opportunity to give top advisors first-hand experience with our products in Switzerland,” says Melissa DaSilva, President of TTC Tour Brands, North America.

“Sustainable travel is extremely important to our brands. By showcasing some of our key "Make Travel Matter" Experiences we hope the advisors on this trip will learn what makes this an important aspect of the travel experience with TTC Tour Brands.”
