TOUR MANAGERS

Travel Weekly reporter David Cogswell wrote: Portrait of a tour manager as the main man. "The tour director is the host of the party, a wild sleepover in a moving setting. He is the facilitator of the movement; the solver of problems; the maker of arrangements; a sympathetic ear to the frustrated; a protector of the vulnerable, and a helping hand to the faltering. He must be a little bit teacher, a bit of an entertainer and certainly a leader."

Enlist group participants

Whom should you approach to join your group?  Everyone loves to travel and everyone is a possible traveling companion. What about a family reunion in some special place? Your place of worship. We specialize in religious pilgrimages and spiritual journeys. Your friends:” who better than your friends as travel companions? Other places you socialize; work, community center, with your fellow alumni, country club... you get the picture: talk to everyone. It takes time to gather the troops, so you should start promoting your trip well in advance; at least six months or more before your departure. Once you have decided on your itinerary and departure date, we suggest that you get everyone together to talk about the trip. We will help you with collateral material and, if your gathering is large enough, we could even send someone to help.
How can you promote your group?  The possibilities are endless, but here are a few proven ideas. Put a small ad in your local newspaper or church bulletin, advising people about the trip and the date and place of your informal get-together.  
Give the group itinerary to everyone you know. People love to see details and it will show that you are serious about promoting your group. You should also include the details about your get-together.  
Send a personal email out to your potential group participants about your trip. Put it up on the web.” We can send you the digital material to make this simple.  
Create a flyer  we can help you  and have it included in your church or synagogue bulletin. You can even drop off a supply at your library, country club, etc.

Get Everyone Together

Getting ready for your get-together Once you have created enough interest for the group, its time to get everyone together to really talk things up. Italian Travel Team will prepare the detailed itinerary and supporting materials for you. We'll even create sign-up forms and other items that will really make the meeting a success, just make sure you discuss all of this with us in advance so we can prepare everything for you. Get all your ducks in a row. Just before your meeting, we'll finalize the following with you:

  • Itinerary and travel dates
  • Airline information
  • Final price per person
  • Travel Insurance Protection Plan
  • All important deadlines including those for sign-ups, deposits, etc.
  • Plus anything else you may want us to address.
About the meeting:  
The main focus of the meeting is to create excitement about the trip. Make sure you keep a list of everyone that attends, along with all of their contact information. This will make follow up easier.
Nothing sells travel better than passion. Be sure to share your excitement with the group. Tell them why you selected the particular destination and about all the wonderful, enriching experiences they will come away with if they join you.
Some things you need to be sure to cover are:
  • Describe the itinerary and go over the departure and return dates.
  • Give out the detailed itineraries and reservation forms. We will help you with these.
  • Mention clearly the cost and when deposits and final payments are due.
  • o over each of the group itinerary components that are included in the cost.
  • Get firm commitments from people early on. You may even want to offer an early booking discount to encourage sign-ups right there at the meeting.

Follow up with anyone who you thought was interested but had not yet confirmed their participation. Sometimes, people just need a little push to make a commitment.
