necessarily be choosing between the two.

Some travel agency owners have tried to address the effective use and application of data, but found the choice of data application solutions scarce and expensive. Most seem to be either geared towards big multinationals or do not offer immediate results and a positive change in the business.

Despite lingering perceptions that travel agents are a dying breed, newly released industry figures reveal that business is booming for agencies of all types and sizes. The greatest challenge to their growth, in fact, is not a surfeit of online competition but a deficit of manpower.

The modern safari model generally goes something like this: Fly in, bump around in a jeep, photograph the Big Five, have a sundowner, fly home. But there's more to a good safari than an album full of elephant pictures. The following camps are redefining the experience, opening up previously unseen landscapes, improving conservation efforts, providing more meaningful cultural interactions, and generally making things more interesting.

Seller has developed profitable, safe, market tours into
areas where others fear to tread. Owners are an established niche travel operator specializing in high-quality African tours targeted to a particular demographic.

Tours are considered to be superior in a number of ways yet are competitive in price to lessor priced products offered by bigger competitors. Operationally the owners have developed processes and procedures that not only work, but are also superior to the industry standard.

They have developed a proven system of generating prospects, turning prospects into clients, and executing the tours almost flawlessly. Word-of-mouth advertising paired with their marketing prowess has created a system that is very easy to duplicate and lends itself well to scaling up into larger organizations and other tour destinations.

The owners have achieved all of this while owning the business rather than having the business own them. Despite the merits of the business, the sellers are approaching retirement age and have no succession plan for the business other than selling it.  A growing list of referrals is available from hundreds of satisfied clients; these can be used in marketing.

travelagencyforsale@pin.ca

Owners would be amenable to acting as
consultants for any new ownership.
