Travel professionals can build in-depth destination knowledge first-hand with Tourism New Zealand’s Explore PLUS independent FAM program. This self-serve tool allows agents to utilize over 1000 pre-approved discounts on land tours, activities, transportation, and accommodations throughout New Zealand, as well as exclusive agent airfares on four partner airlines, starting at $500 round trip.
Tourism New Zealand is incentivizing travel agents even further with a special $500 trip credit available to the first 50 agents to book their independent FAM by August 12, 2018 for travel September 1, 2018 to November 19, 2018. Participating airlines include Air New Zealand, American Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, and Fiji Airways.
“We recognize agents have limited time and so we developed a program that lets them travel when they want, the way they want, and with whom they want,” said Michelle Rosenberg, Tourism New Zealand’s Senior Manager of Trade Partnerships, North America. “The program is very flexible and allows agents to design their very own New Zealand experience.”
To apply for the Explore PLUS program, travel agents must first complete the 100% Pure New Zealand Specialist Program at the Bronze levels. The agent will earn Gold level status by completing their FAM.
