The Luxury Travel Collection (LTC) has unveiled its Members Portfolio, announcing the foundation cohort to join the new Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) luxury house.
The new Member Portfolio includes luminaries Carole and Phil Smethurst with Bicton Travel and Claremont Travel & Cruise; Stuart Ingram and Destination HQ; Stephen Green and Travel Experts; and Hilary and Holly Weir of Dream Maker Travel.
Robyn and Murray Sinfield and Home Travel Company will join from February.
The LTC Member Portfolio is headed up by General Manager Nikki Glading, who joined FCTG in May.
Addition to the Portfolio is by personal invitation, based on shared values of “influence, distinction, vision, dynamism, and empowerment”, as well as other defining credentials such as “entrepreneurism”, “a commitment to exceptional client service”, “an alignment to luxury business values”, and more.
Glading said FCTG sees a “bright future” for its Members Portfolio, which it will continue to grow with some of Australia’s best luxury travel brands.
“It is incredibly rewarding and exciting to work with this group of famous travel brands to deliver the best luxury travel services in Australia,” Glading added.
“Our business is a family, where people are the most important element to success.”
Luxury Travel Collection global Managing Director Dani Galloway said the celebrated group of industry professionals will perfectly complement fellow FCTG brands Travel Associates and Scott Dunn in the luxury market.
“The Luxury Travel Collection is now the leading global house of luxury travel brand,” Galloway declared.
“Our hand-selected members have established their stellar professional reputations by elevating travel to the very highest standard imaginable, with discerning clients at the centre of their business strategy.
“Establishing this portfolio of celebrated members was the obvious next step in building an unparalleled luxury business.”
The LTC also launched its business-to-business website today, which can be found here.
