More than just Turkey

first_imgSource = roomsXML More than just TurkeyMarcus Falay is living proof that travel agents can prosper outside of the retail space.  I met Marcus about five years ago at a networking group, identified a mutual friend and as he works around the corner, we regularly catch up and discuss business, innovation and entrepreneurship.Being a Turkish native with family still in Turkey, Marcus spent years putting together one of the most audacious plans for the hundred year anniversary of Gallipoli in 2015. He then took a year “off” to grow the wholesale side of the business.His next direction? Read on….So last year you put a few hundred people on a boat in Gallipoli…. How did that go?It was just about 600 people who we treated to a centennial experience of a lifetime.Of the 600, nearly 200 Lucky Ballot holders made it to Anzac Cove itself, while the remaining guests had their very own, live-feed Anzac Dawn Service at the waters of Gallipoli onboard the Luxury Azamara Journey. Former Governor Generals of Australia & NZ, Dr Peter Hollingworth and Sir Anand Satyanand were onboard during the service, and in turn serenaded by world famous Soprano Dame Malvina Major sang WW2 songs .So if this doesn’t cement you as a Turkey expert, nothing will. But you’ve decided to broaden your horizons?For years we have specialised in Turkey in Small Group Tours, F.I.T and gulets. Business is grown via referrals, we started wholesaling because of volume that we could generate with us and our customers. Returning happy clients often ask us if we do the same to other destinations.So today, we’ve taken the experience and extended our Small Group and F.I.T. travel arrangements.Turkey is always our number one destination but we are extending to cover some of the Silk Road including Greece, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Morocco, Jordan, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Azerbaijan.A wholesaler that retails… How do you earn the trust of travel agents who might be dubious?We have developed unique systems to ensure that agents are feeling protected 1) T.A.P.S (Travel Agency Protection Scheme) Travel agents may refer their clients to us and we will take care of all the arrangements. Upon final payment from clients, we send the FULL commission to the referring agent.
