Popular Alliance program expands to romance travel specialists
ALEXANDRIA, VA (February 14, 2023) – Travel Leaders Network (TLN) is adding to its popular Leaders Alliance communities with a new opportunity for advisors specializing in romance travel. The Honeymoon & Destination Wedding Leaders Alliance is now open for TLN advisors to apply.
“Honeymoons and destination weddings are especially lucrative for travel advisors,” said Roger E. Block, President of Travel Leaders Network. “There are so many clients and needs within this niche, and as the largest network of travel agencies in North America, Travel Leaders Network is uniquely positioned to provide the win-win solution of an exclusive group for travel advisors and access to them for our supplier partners.”
This Alliance will join two existing Alliances: the Luxury Leaders Alliance and the Independent Advisor Network (Host) Alliance. Launched in 2022, both Alliances serve the top group of TLN members in their area. They offer specialty gatherings, networking in-person and online, opportunities for collaboration and sharing of knowledge and exclusive trainings. Based on members’ selling data and feedback, TLN determined that the next Alliance would be for romance travel advisors.
Travel Leaders Network has long offered a specialist certification in honeymoons and destination weddings that is a popular option for members. The new Alliance goes beyond that: while the certification is useful for a wide range of advisors, the Alliance is only open to TLN members with a proven track record of romance travel sales.
Application for membership in the Alliance must be approved by the advisor’s agency owner/manager. Upon receiving the application, Travel Leaders Network’s romance travel experts will review, and membership will be offered to the top sellers in this category, thus limiting the openings to a small and highly focused group.
“This Alliance takes the romance travel niche to the next level for Travel Leaders advisors,” said Carrie Brandt, Director at Travel Leaders Network and internal honeymoon and destination wedding travel expert. “This type of travel is like 3D chess for travel advisors: it represents some of the most important travel of people’s lives, is incredibly detailed and requires a lot of experience to deal with the complexity of these trips. Advisors who have proven to be successful in this require their own Leaders Alliance and want to be surrounded by people producing at their level. The Honeymoon & Destination Wedding Leaders Alliance gives them that opportunity, and we look forward to developing this group.”
