Classic Vacations has expanded its destination portfolio with the “Exotic Adventures” program launched in collaboration with SITA World Tours. The program includes a collection of 40 new customizable itineraries across three continents including Africa, Asia and South America.
“Travelers are increasingly in search of more exotic and unique travel experiences,” said Joelle Apilado, VP product development at Classic Vacations. “We are excited to broaden our portfolio by partnering with SITA World Tours, a distinguished member of USTOA renowned for its international reputation in providing first-class travel experiences.”
This collaboration allows Classic Vacations to provide agency partners with additional options for selling exotic destinations that are not part of the Classic preferred portfolio. Advisors will receive dedicated reservation support and earn commission on both private and shared hand-selected tours across Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Uganda, Rwanda, Morocco, Zanzibar, Egypt, Taiwan, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Panama, Ecuador and Peru.
Mok Singh, owner and president of SITA World Tours, said: “The synergy between Classic’s brand and our in-destination expertise and fulfillment abilities are a perfect match. We are providing both curated itineraries and customized services. Classic’s many advisors will find this new, revenue-producing resource, as a strong tool. I am very pleased with the collaboration.”
