Our highest-selling business owners are known as ‘Gold Travel Counsellors.’ Each year they are rewarded for their efforts and are taken away on an international trip to celebrate their success. This has always been an annual event until covid hit, but late last year we were pleased to announce that these Gold trips are back!
This is the red-carpet treatment given to all our Gold Travel Counsellors where they are treated like VIPS and recognised for looking after their customers so well. Plus to celebrate the resiliance shown during the pandemic as well as the continuing surge in bookings.
This year our Gold trips doubled from 2 to 4 and our Gold Travel Counsellors had a choice of 4 luxury getaways.
If you were Gold – which of these trips, would you have selected?

Kerith jetted off on the Virgin Voyages Cruise and spent 4 nights on the Valiant Lady. This cruise began in the historical city of Lisbon and TCs visited the Spanish favourites of Gibraltar Cadiz and Malaga.
This is what Kerith had to say, "Overall it was a wonderful experience to travel again, experience the hospitality of our partners and sponsors and see a few new places. But really for me it was the chance to meet the other Gold TCs from around the world and the head office staff that really made it worthwhile for me. It was so interesting to chat to everyone about their business, their niches and their experiences and gave me some great ideas and insight into how I can stay gold and achieve more year on year. I’ve been really struggling with motivation and it definitely helped give me a reminder of why we do what we do and our amazing community."
Nina, Nicci, Saffron and Ros jetted off to the Maldives where they are staying at the brand new 4 Star all-inclusive Oblu XPERIENCE Ailafushi.
We are so looking forward to hearing all about their experiences. What is more, is that as the TCs go and experience new destinations and resorts they can share this knowledge with their customers. They post their photos and videos across their social media channels making us all dream… hoping that we can one day go there too. The best is that often this is just what customers need to encourage them to book their next trip.
“Gold” is an achievement that is open to all Travel Counsellors. The company had 189 Gold TCs going into the pandemic and, what’s more, 28 new TCs achieved their “gold” status since February 2020 (during the pandemic), which clearly shows their determination and commitment during the tough times.
Travel Counsellors will be also soon be relaunching its “Going for Gold” training programme this year, which is specifically aimed at helping TCs achieve their high performance goals.
