Insight Vacations goes for gold

Insight Vacations’ newly minted global managing director Ulla Hefer Bohler made her first soujourn to Australia since the 2000 Sydney Olympics last month, presiding over the lavish formal launch of Luxury Gold as a standalone product range. Top selling agents and industry partners were hosted at an exclusive event at a private home in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, evoking the exclusivity and experiential nature of the program. Taking travel to the next level, Luxury Gold comprises a global collection of 42 small group journeys in Europe, Britain, Africa, India, Latin America, North America, Australia and New Zealand which “go above and beyond expectations,” Bohler said.

For clients seeking the ultimate in experiences, the Luxury Gold program also features the Chairman’s Collection, personally curated by The Travel Corporation founder and chairman Stanley Tollman. The collection includes specific departures offering a “special extra exclusive experience” such as lunch with an Italian count at his villa in Tuscany, or walking the gardens of Alnwick Castle with The Duchess of Northumberland.

“Our enhanced 2018 Luxury Gold collection aims to make each journey an extraordinary one by bringing an unparalleled wealth of expertise and insights, accumulated over nearly 100 years as leaders in luxury travel, to experiences that will indulge the senses and open the mind,” Bohler said. The rollout of the 2018 Luxury Gold program is being led by long-time Insight Vacations sales manager David Farrar, who has been appointed to the newly created role of Director of Sales Luxury Gold to ensure agents have a dedicated and experienced resource to help them grow their business. “Working closely with our agency partners is an integral part of our story and key to our future success,” said Insight managing director Australia, Alexandra O’Connor.
