Established more than 50 years ago, Signature Travel Network agencies have a strong luxury travel focus and generate sales in excess of $4 billion.
“We’re very excited about this new relationship with such a highly respected and prestigious network of travel professionals,” said John Hanratty, chief marketing officer for Travel Impressions. “It’s a significant step toward further expansion of the Travel Impressions’ business, especially since Signature has a strong presence in the western United States, which meshes well with our growth strategy,” he noted.
With the addition of Travel Impressions as a marketing partner to the Signature Travel Network, member agencies will be able to provide their clients with leisure vacation packages to 150 destinations and more than 2,000 resorts and hotels worldwide, departing from cities nationwide. Since its founding in 1974, Travel Impressions has taken approximately six million travelers on vacations to Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, the Eastern Mediterranean, Dubai, South Africa, the Islands of Tahiti, Canada, Hawaii and the Continental U.S. By January 2010, Travel Impressions will add New Zealand, Australia and Fiji to its portfolio.
To launch the new relationship, Travel Impressions will provide training and will host a series of “Getting to Know Travel Impressions” webinars to further build knowledge about the company within the Signature network of agencies.
