On Day 1 of the tour, travelers meet their friendly, highly skilled professional Tour Manager. Your group is in good hands with this key player in their vacation.  With the Tour Manager’s rich travel background and useful information about language, currency, and all things local, everyone can relax and enjoy the ride.  Simply wake each morning and a new experience waits.   No need to worry about the details.

There are so many benefits to traveling with us—most importantly, letting someone else take on the pesky details that come with having the perfect trip.  See why more and more groups choose to go guided with Collette—and why they never go back.

Collette Makes It Easy

Our expert staff is continually on hand to help you, but in addition, Collette has developed a special online travel hub called “the Gateway” that makes organizing your group and the promotion stage easy.  Simply sign in and you have your own virtual assistant at your fingertips.   Manage your bookings, communicate with Collette experts, and coordinate promotional material on the same site.

The most exciting part about choosing Collette is that we assist you through the sometimes daunting promotion phase.  On the Gateway you will find a personalized e-flyer created just for you. You can send it to your email lists and post it on social media sites.  This flyer will link your potential clients back to our site to give them all the information they will need to book the tour with you.

In addition, Collette’s marketing staff creates free 4-color itinerary flyers and posters for you and mails them to you.  Hand them out, post them in the community center, or mail them to your past clients.  After you distribute, Collette will reimburse you for 50% of the postage costs you incur!

Once they make a reservation, your travelers can sign up on the Gateway to view their individual booking information.  This will assist them by giving them easy access to their itinerary and complete booking details.  In addition, it is a great way to communicate with them, and they will have the ability to tell you what they are interested in for their next destination.

Remember, we are here to assist you and make every trip your best.

Live It and Learn It

It is important to us that you travel to experience the destination and the Collette difference.  After all, we want you to be an expert, too, and we want you to have the confidence to discuss the Collette experience with your group.  That is why we offer FAM tours.  We want you to go beyond the brochure and live and breathe the experience.

Why travel on a FAM trip?

FAMs are free for travel coordinators! Book 15 or more passengers on the same tour, or a higher priced tour, within 12 months of the FAM’s return, and you will be entitled to a 100% rebate of your FAM cost (based on the twin rate).  A FAM is the perfect opportunity to familiarize yourself with a destination that you’re either considering or currently promoting.  If you have not yet traveled with Collette, our FAMs showcase how we operate as a company, the quality of our product, and our commitment to service.  In addition, they are a great opportunity to network with other travel professionals.
