Carlsbad, California (PressExposure) January 26, 2009 -- Although started less than one year ago, TheTopTravelClub.com already offers thousands of direct booking discounts for travel adventures in over 80 countries. The emphasis now is to build memberships by offering the same travel benefits to other clubs and organizations.
The Club offers all travel operators the opportunity to get free advertising, marketing, promotion and direct links for their websites when they join the TopTravelVoucher program.
This program allows discounts for members and visitors who are comfortable with dealing directly with the operators to book travel arrangements. All vouchers are free to members of the club and there is no limit to the number of vouchers that they may use for themselves and their immediate families.
Retail and wholesale agents may also join the program if they want to reach out to a broader client base, both national and international. An agent in one country may have a selection of travel products that are not readily available in another country but which can now be sold directly to a new and broader range of travelers and new clients. Agents with local or special knowledge, experience and expertise together with those operating their own tours are also welcomed to offer their services.
The Club does not sell travel or take or make reservations and bookings and all monies are handled between travelers and the operators listed on the sites. The discounts approximately represent the commissions and fees that the operators would normally pay to sellers of their travel services. The Club gives 100% of this amount back to members when they make their own bookings.
The Club's mandate. "Allow free linked listings for all travel businesses and give 100% of the normal selling commissions and fees back to members to encourage travel with direct booking discounts."
Travel operators are being sought in every country, region, state, county, city, town, village and community. The world of travel that rarely gets offered or seen in brochures or by the retail travel industry are welcomed here. From the smallest b&b to the grandest and remotest lodge to local and international tour operators, all are invited to link their services by travel destination and activity.
A current search is on to find travel insurance providers for all countries who are willing to let the club give back the commissions to members and travelers using the vouchers. Air ticket consolidators who deal directly with the public are also being sought for the members.
A spokesman for the club states that new travel services are being added on a weekly basis but now the campaign has been started to build the membership. Should travelers not wish to join the club and get free vouchers they can visit an associated site where all of the same vouchers may be purchased at deep discounts to their face value.
"The world of travel is often represented by the world of small businesses and they are the ones that can create jobs and contribute to healthy local economies, so all we have to do now is to encourage more of them to join us and for them to offer direct booking discounts." Club Marketing Team.
