If you’ve been having one of those “jeez, how is it nearly April?” moments, then listen up. We’re loving the industry bounce back (of course), but it’s coming with a heap of pressure. Thankfully, Designer Journeys is on hand to take a load off your plate with their risk-free curated, bespoke travel experiences. You can even sign up right now.
Designer journeys are all about helping you build extraordinary travel experiences for your clients. Using their network of local travel designers, they act like your PA to get the perfect itinerary together (with your branding and details on it!). All without you having to sweat, study, and stress over destinations that you’re unfamiliar with.
Look extraordinary (with little work)
Via Designer Journey’s network of 250 designers in 70+ countries, you gain access to local knowledge like you’re on the ground yourself. And because the DJ crew know what’s important to you, they do all the graft behind the scenes. Quite frankly, no one need ever know that you didn’t spend hours swotting up on that trip!
Knowing that Designer Journeys protects and values your business gives us the warm and fuzzies, tbh.
The heavy lifting done for you
Designer Journeys have sure-fire methods to get the right trip for your client locked in with minimal effort for you. Get inspo from their gallery of over 2,000 suggested trips; all fully customisable so you can easily smash your clients’ expectations.
Alternatively, get the low-down on what your client is after by completing the quick Designer Journeys online brief form. The agent portal prompts you for information, from the style of travel and accommodation, to activities, budgets, and dates. It usually takes less than five minutes to complete.
Customised itineraries are usually returned within 48 hours. With all the heavy lifting done for you by the Travel Concierge team, it’s easy to nail that sale.
Grow your business without risk
CEO Matt McCann revealed “Savvy travels agents are using our travel designer network to help them service clients as a result of the pressure of high enquiry volumes. Rather than having to hire new staff or say no to a client, these agents are using Designer Journeys as an outsourced travel design resource, as the most cost effective and risk-free way to growth their businesses with preserving the relationship with the clients.”
The threats aren’t just in tying yourself down to bigger overheads, but the financial risks, too. Designer Journeys takes on the currency risks; ideal in today’s fluctuating financial landscape.
There is also a top-level focus on quality. Instead of you trying to gauge which DMCs survived the pandemic in good financial health (if they made it at all), you can rely on DJ’s rigorous onboarding process for their on-the-ground network of travel designers. You can trust their reliable, effective support for on-the-ground problem-solving, too.
There’s also the insolvency risk. Again, not yours. Designer Journeys offers a replacement or refund should the worst happen to those customised plans.
Remember that ‘80s song “Turn Back Time”? While Designer Journeys can’t slow down clocks, they can relieve your time pressures.
It’s like the 80/20 Pareto rule that says that 20% of what you do equates to 80% of your results. Booking new travellers to destinations you know is a breeze. Left-of-centre requests (like this one), however, take up far too much time. Those are the itineraries you can hand to Designer Journeys.
According to McCann, it’s more like 60/40 right now, with agents handing them about 40% of their work! What would you do with 40% more free time?
What’s hot right now?
So, what’s trending at Designer Journeys right now?
According to McCann, Japan is hot, hot, hot right now; Vietnam, too. Italy, Greece, and France are topping Western Europe travel lists, while Morocco, Egypt, and African safaris are also in demand.
