Yes, you can be paid to travel. How much is dependent on the type and size of your group. A smaller group may cover part of your travel costs, while a large group may cover all of your travel costs and possibly more.
The concept is fairly straight-forward. You bring together a group (work, leisure, friends, or your family, etc.) and we compensate you for each passenger (land) or stateroom (cruise) that is booked into the group space. All payments are made after travel is completed, based on the final number of passengers/staterooms that actually travel.
With a Group Cruise
Group cruises are an excellent option for corporate retreats, incentive travel, continuing education, seminars/workshops, networking events, leisure groups with a shared interest (i.e. quilting), etc. Based on your needs and those of your group, we can arrange private meeting rooms with A/V set up, private cocktail parties or other networking events, unique team building activities, private shore excursions, etc.
With an Escorted Tour
Do you have a group of art history enthusiasts? We can put together a tour around specific art museums that you want to have included.
Or do you and your buddies enjoy golf, or scotch whisky? How about a golf-whisky tour of Scotland, including a round of golf at St Andrews and visits to several scotch-whisky distilleries?
Do you teach theater? Why not escort a group to New York City? We can include tickets for the Broadway shows that you want to see. Or how about London's West End theater district?
Are you a foreign language professor? How about taking a group of Italian language students to Italy? Or French language students to France?
With an All-Inclusive Resort
All-inclusive resorts are wonderful destinations for multi-generational families, as well as for corporate retreats or incentive travel. Multi-generational families can be matched with child-friendly resorts, while a corporate retreat organizer may be more interested in targeting an adults-only resort. Let us know your needs, and we will match your group to the proper resort.
Supporting Travel - Fundraising Ideas
All of the above - cruises, escorted vacations, and all-inclusive resorts - can be used in a variety of ways to raise funds for nonprofit organizations. You can also take a group mentioned above (i.e. a group of quilters) and turn it into a fundraising trip (cruise or land).
The options are truly only limited by your own imagination. Contact us and we will give you a free 30 minute consultation to discuss your group travel idea.
