7 Different Types of Travel

There are as many types of travel including combinations of the types listed here. We choose our travel destinations and types of travel based on many factors. There is no right or wrong way for everyone. Consider the options and just go for it and enjoy the sights, sounds, small and excitements of new places.

1. The Package Holiday

The most common type of leisure travel is the package holiday. How good is it when all the planning is already done? Simply pick up the brochure or search the internet and there it is. Call your travel agent, make the booking and pay the price. The most difficult part is the waiting!

There are many value options in package holidays with many options as to length of holiday and the activities during the holiday.

2. The Group Tour

There are many different types of group tours – from a bunch of seniors to a bunch of teenagers and everything in between doing almost anything that is available. Choose your group tour wisely as you will be spending many days with your fellow travellers. Group tours are usually organised like packages holidays and they have the advantage that usually the group leader adds value to the experiences in many ways. Another advantage of a group tours is that there is a good chance that you will meet like-minded people who many become lifelong friends.

3. The Weekend Getaway

Busy workers may only have short weekend opportunities to travel. Take a weekend getaway where the travel distance is not that great but the benefits of going someplace new is not diminished. Take the opportunity of last-minute bookings, if you like a mystery.

4. Family Reunion

Visiting family or friends can be so much fun (hopefully). Usually staying with family and friends requires only travel arrangements to and from the destination. Who better to show you around than someone who lives in the place that you are visiting – get the insider information.

Accommodation options may also include apartments rather than hotels.

5. Event Travel

Event travel refers to traveling to a particular event, like a sporting match, a concert, an exhibition, a festival etc. The time and place is set and most likely for popular events – book early and expect to pay a little more. Enjoy and event and meet people who have similar passions.

6. Long-Term Travel

The number of travellers who travel for long periods of time is increasing. The type and style of travel will depend on financial position. Backpackers to seniors are in this class. Many seniors opt for long-term cruising as a lifestyle. Long-term travellers have the opportunity to understand the culture, art, history and people of a place well

7. Business Travel

Finally the business traveller. The best thing about traveling for business is that usually someone else is paying the bills. Choice of travel is set by the payer of the bills but generally there are evenings and weekend s to enjoy.

In conclusion, irrespective of the type of travel, there are so many places to see and so many activities to take part in. Take the opportunity no matter what, then enjoy and return home a little different.

A Review Of Pro Travel Plus – Can You Really Succeed Selling Travel?

An Unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review – Should You Join?

So there’s yet another Network Marketing company in pre-launch that’s getting some buzz. The company is called Pro Travel Plus, and if you stumbled on this article you’re probably doing some research on the company before you join as a distributor. If that’s the case, look no further. In this Pro Travel Plus Review, I’ll cover all the essential details you need to know before getting started. I’ll also go into the actual compensation plan so you’ll get a pretty good idea of how to get paid. Before moving forward, I do want to disclose that I’m not a Pro Travel Plus distributor, nor have I used their services. I say that to let you know that it really doesn’t make a difference to me whether you join or not so you can be sure that you’ll be getting an unbiased Pro Travel Plus Review.

Who is Pro Travel Plus?

Sadly, there isn’t much information available on the actual company. I scoured the Internet and really couldn’t find out who the actual owner is or who is on the corporate team. I also couldn’t find out where the company is located. The only thing I discovered after viewing some videos on YouTube is that a gentleman by the name of Seth Fraser is the company’s CEO. It seems that Seth Fraser has been around the Industry for a while. He was affiliated with That Free Thing, and more recently he was involved with Kannaway. From the looks of it, Pro Travel Plus is offering members a discount on travel. Members also have access to a $500 voucher they can use on airline tickets, hotels and car rentals. Again, since as of this writing there isn’t much information available and since their portal isn’t live yet, there’s not much details on their travel portal I could find. The good news is the company is positioned in the Travel Industry. Travel is an $8 Trillion Industry and is expected to grow past $15 Trillion over the next 10 years. From a marketing perspective, it’s easy to talk about and sell travel because almost everyone either travels or would love to travel more. With that being said, knowing who the principals are behind the company is extremely important if you’re looking to plant your flag and build a long-term business.

How Do You Get Paid?

I couldn’t find an official compensation plan document so it was through several distributor videos that I was able to see how Pro Travel Plus pays their distributors. In order to get started, you have 3 different options to join: 1 Star ($69.95, $34.95/month), 2 Star ($269.90) and 3 Star ($469.90). You can also start at 1 Star and promote yourself to 2 Star and 3 Star through building a team of active distributors.

There are 5 different ways to get paid:

Powerline Bonus – As people join the company, they are time stamped and the company can track who joined the company after you. Distributors are positioned down one straight line and as people get started, you can earn 5% down 5 levels regardless of who enrolls them.

Fast Start Bonus – You can earn a one-time bonus as people join your personal organization tree. As people join at the 3 Star level ($469.90 cost), you’ll earn $30 on your 1st level, $5 on your second level and $3 on your third level. If people join at the 2 Star level ($269.90 cost), you’ll earn $25 on your first level and $5 on your second level. And if people join at the 1 Star level ($69.95 cost), you’ll earn a $15 bonus on all your personally sponsored people.

Coded Infinity Fast Start Overrides – Once you hit 3 Star, you’ll earn between $1 and $2 on every person on your team through 3 Generations of 3 Star Leaders.

Residual Income from 2X14 Matrix – The company has a matrix whereby you only have 2 positions on your 1st level and you’re forced to place every person you enroll underneath other people once your top 2 positions were filled. Placement is critical in a matrix compensation plan because if you join early, you can potentially have hundred of distributors under you that you did not bring in. A completely filled out 2X14 Matrix pays out over $25,000/month if everyone in your matrix is active.

Matching Bonus – based on your rank, you can earn between 2% to 15% Match of the Matrix commissions earned by people in your personal enrollment tree down 6 levels. You’ll earn a 50% Match on all your personals.

From the looks of it, the compensation plan looks pretty lucrative. Again, if you’re serious about building a long-term business, get your hands on the official compensation plan documents so you can see for yourself what you need to do to earn income.

Should You Join?

Well… only you can truly answer that. If travel is your thing and you like the idea of joining a start-up company, then maybe Pro Travel Plus is for you. Statistically, start-up companies in the Network Marketing industry never make it past 5 years. Of course, some companies do assuming there is strong and experienced leadership running the company. Because they are in pre-launch there’s no way of finding out who is behind Pro Travel Plus so it’s hard to tell if they will be positioned for the long haul. One thing is clear… if you do decide to partner with Pro Travel Plus, you’re going to need leads to build your business. Without leads, you can have the greatest opportunity in the world but if you don’t have any leads to talk to, you have little to no chance of succeeding. This is why I suggest you learn Attraction Marketing. If you can leverage technology and learn how to generate leads online, and you can implement the building system your upline leadership has in place, there’s no telling how prosperous you can become.

Jaime Soriano wrote this Pro Travel Plus Review for people looking into the company. Sadly, most Pro Travel Plus reps will never see the success they desire because they lack the marketing skills to generate 20-50 leads a day.

9 Questions to Ask Before Travelling

When planning a holiday or a tour, it is best to understand what you are letting yourself into. Try to understand the offer and any hidden challenges in travelling, particularly international travelling. A reputable travel agent can help direct you to the right places. Here are some questions to ask.

1. What passport and visa requirements are there for traveling to a particular destination? Most governments have information about their passport and visa requirements. Make sure that your passport is current and meets the validity period of the country that you are visiting. Request visas early as some visas take up to three weeks to arrange and need detailed information.

2. When is the best time to travel to a particular destination? Discover when the “best value options” are available and confirm that your particular interest is available during the time of travel. Check for any “great value package deals” that include flights, accommodation and tours. The greater your flexibility in travel time, the more likely there is that there are package deals for you.

3. What are the dangers or hazards in travelling to a destination?And what are the risk mitigation strategies that are in place? Where can I find detailed advice on what I need to do to remain healthy? Try to understand what is different.

4. What is the currency? And where is the best place to exchange money? Am I better to use a credit card? Your bank will be able to give good information on the money side of things.

5. Do I need Travel Insurance? Most governments will advise that “if you cannot afford travel insurance you cannot afford to travel”. There are many avenues for travel insurance – travel agents, insurance brokers, health funds etc. Tell your potential insurer where you are going and what you intend to do there. to help achieve the most appropriate policy.

6. What vaccinations do I need? There are restrictions on some countries for those who have not been vaccinated. Consult your doctor or a travel doctor for the latest recommendations. Take your detailed itinerary with you to the doctor.

7. What flight options are available? What time of day do I leave and what tome of the day do I arrive at my destination? Are their direct flights? If not, are there stopovers? What is the best value?

8. Are facilities for disabled travellers or travellers with challenges available? Ask about the particular challenge that you face.

9. Are there any special requirements for traveling to a particular destination? Are there any cultural or social behaviours that apply?

In summary, this is a short list of questions that will help any traveller understand some of the hidden information about holidays.

The 5 Main Reasons for Choosing a Travel Agent

It is now possible to almost arrange any travel itineraries independently online. There are pros and cons to all things. Here we look at 5 reasons to consult with a travel consultant for your plans.

1. The Complete Picture

Prudent travellers understand that it is not simply the original tour price that determines the total price of any package. The selection of dates, locations, airlines, quality of accommodation, booking policies, available amenities and other things make up the complete package. Not all the items are fully included in all packages. Every person or group has unique needs and the good consultants listen to the individual needs and tailor a package accordingly.

2. Best Price

Best prices means saving money, but it is more about value. The right flights, times, accommodation, cruised etc. are important to travellers. Good travel consultants create a package based on individual needs rather than what might be advertised as “the best price”. Sometimes “best price” and individual travel needs meet creating the best value travel option.

3. Save Time and Energy

Time is a valuable resource for all of us. Most people will say that there is not enough time for travelling. Good travel consultants aim to provide the right travel experience at the expected quality at the best price, saving time and energy for the traveller. It may be possible to save time by booking directly online, but the travel agent will find the right travel arrangements often at a better price.

4. Understand the Risks

We all have a good idea about the risks in our home country. However, every country has its own risks. Travel consultants know or have access to information that will increase the chance of safe and secure travel in countries that they work with. Understand how to choose food, how to travel safely, what the weather is like and how to enjoy the sights and your travel will be much more enjoyable.

5, Product Knowledge

Many travellers want to discover new things. Travel consultants have at their disposal thousands of proven travel options. Their knowledge may very well help you find a better travel experience than what is available online. (Please note: not all travel options are available online)

Travel can be a risky business, getting the right package, getting there, touring in a strange land, meeting different people and trying new foods. Your travel agent is there to help you enjoy the best of what there is to offer and help to keep you safe.

How to Get the Most From Travel Agents

Like most things in life, most people regard travel as important and hope to have great experiences at all times. In order to maximise the experience and manage the risks, your travel consultant is there to help. Here we look at how to best get great value from travel consultant, especially in the world where online booking systems are growing daily.

1. Do some homework on the travel professionals and his/her affiliations. This may help you decide which travel consultants to talk to. It will save you time. But above all look for someone who you can relate to.

2. Research the kinds of trips and destinations that interest you. Have your approximate dates in mind. Give this information to the travel agent and ask for thoughts, options or any other additions that you desire. All the while keeping in mind your budget. Share the amount of money that you want to spend on the holiday and be reasonable. This will impact the standard of luxury that you can afford. There is no such things as a free holiday. Bo open about the type of travel you prefer, particularly airline travel.

3. Ask about the risks of travelling to any destination. The risks of each country are unique and mitigating or managing the risks will be highly beneficial. Check with you doctor or a travel doctor about necessary vaccinations and other precautions.

4. If planning to take a holiday during busy or peak periods, make bookings early. Typically, at least 6 months in advance in order not to be disappointed. Planning early for any holiday is good advice.

5. Describe the types of people you want to meet or travel with, particularly if it is a long tour. Other travellers can impact your experience, so talk openly about this so that your holiday will be a more enjoyable experience.

6. Ask about “insider” information about any of the aspects of your travel plan. The travel agent can often provide valuable information that is not easily available online.

7. Explain any special interests, hobbies or special events that you may wish to pursue on the holiday. If traveling with a partner or other friends, list their interests as well. Not all options are shown on tour brochures. Many can be added at a lower cost when combined with a package.

8. Ask the travel agent about the weather and about what to take, particularly if you have not travelled to the destination previously.

Your travel consultant will try to provide you with the holiday that best matches your criteria. It is best to be always open and honest to avoid disappointments. Once, the travel is booked, all you have to do is wait and pack – then enjoy.
