When travel planning seems like too big a feat, sync up to The Travel Beat with ALG Vacations.
When a traveler needs an answer, they ask a travel advisor. But what about when you run into a question you’re not sure about? As peak season ramps up and more clients have more concerns about where they can go and what they need to do to get there, we wanted to give you a one-stop resource for travel’s most pressing topics: The Travel Beat with ALG Vacations®, our first-ever podcast for travel advisors and your customers.
An on-the-go tool you can listen to whenever, wherever—hello, multitasking!—The Travel Beat plays on your time … and its premiere episode is streaming now. Not only can you apply what you learn each episode to your business, but you can share with your customers as well, answering their questions in an unexpected, engaging, conversational way.
Every other week, join host Sarah Rau, ALGV’s resident social media guru, and special guests to get sales and service tips from industry peers; pick up techniques for simplifying travel when it’s never been more complex; and take a deep dive into challenges advisors are currently facing.
WHAT YOU’LL HEAR
For our very first episode, it’s all about safe travel! Specifically: navigating in-flux CDC and destination protocols. Guest host Joseph Fehlen, owner of Small Town Wanderer Travel, recounts his personal experiences traveling in Mexico, and how to use that knowledge to reassure clients and turn them into prepared vacationers.
Over the next few months, we’ll be tackling more hot topics, like:
- What to do when customers’ flights are delayed
- Reasons why travel advisors have never been more needed
- Tips for planning a destination wedding during a pandemic
