By Nahrain John @karryontravel02 Aug 2017Airlines, hoteliers and tour operators are really competing for the Travel Agent’s attention right now, with a number of special discounts designed to entice consultants to experience their product first-hand. First, Air Vanuatu came out with $99 (+ taxes) fares to the South Pacific, which was followed up with an accommodation offering from a luxury resort in Vanuatu. Then Norfolk Tourism released cheap self-famil rates and Air New Zealand issued $308 (+ taxes) fares to the Cook Islands. Now Beyond Travel is giving Travel Agents the chance to experience one of 2017’s hottest destinations, Sri Lanka, for less.
