GROUPS… Travel the world for free by leading groups!

  • How many for a group?  -  8 cabins on cruise   -16 people on a guided vacation   -10 rooms on customized tailor vacation.  A land-based group typically is at least 10 rooms but higher numbers are needed to earn the “free”.    
  • Does everyone have to be a member of an organization or be in the same family?  No, a group can be a mix of your friends, co-workers, members of your church, your child’s sports team, dance partners, your boss, your aunt or uncle, your cousin’s best friend.
  •  Why Group Space?  Great guaranteed rates on deposited space.  As space fills on your cruise or land package, and the rates increase, your base rate remains the same! Often you have lower rates than the current rates being offered!  Earn Free Travel with a specified number of passengers.
  •  Pick your Dates and Block Your Space!  The earlier you book the better the rates and availability.  Travel prices are very seasonal; each destination has different high seasons but almost all are in high season when children are out of school.  (Christmas, summer, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc)
  • Spread the Word!  Remember a group does not have to be “closed” to a certain church, neighborhood, organization, or association.  You can actually have multiple flyers with different names on top. Travel Central will provide free of charge registration flyers, brochures, postcards and take out an inexpensive ad in your club, association or church newsletter! 
  • Payments & Invoices.  Travel Central takes care of all of this for you!  When we receive individual payments for the group, we process and mail or email invoices promptly.  We also will remind your passengers of subsequent payments.   We will also ensure that all space not paid for is released in a timely way to avoid any penalties from the supplier.
  • Document Get Together!  Travel Central will host a document get together and how to pack seminar for your group.  We will review your documents, answer any questions, and lead a demonstration on packing.
