296 – All About Fam Trips for the Travel Agent

Podcast Number 296


This week’s co hosted segment focuses on familiarization trips (fam trips). Travel agents have opportunities to visit hotels, resorts and cruise ships. Most fam trips are paid for, or subsidized by the resort, hotel or cruise line. The goal of the familiarization trip is to have the travel agent learn about the property and become more effective at selling the property. Gary Ebels, Lorene Romero and Barry talk about their experiences with familiarization trips.
