Work hard; play hard. That’s the universal travel agent’s motto, right? RIGHT! Yes, you love to make other people’s dreams come true, but sometimes it’s nice to pack your bags and set off on your own adventure too.

Famils are going strong (shout out to all the wonderful companies that you sell) and we love to see your happy little faces while overseas.

That’s why we’re bringing you a weekly famil wrap, so we can all have a nose as to what you’ve been up to and to give you some extra bragging rights, because, let’s face it… the travel industry is the best industry in the world? #travelforlife

Can you spot yourself or someone you know?

The Leading Hotels of the World ended its 2019 Leading Famils program with an exciting eight-night itinerary to Spain.

Six agents met Christina Mason, their Leading Famils host, at El Palace Barcelona where they stayed for three nights.

During their time in Barcelona, the group marvelled at the renowned Sagrada Familia, admired the city’s incredible architecture and started their Spanish culinary journey with tapas.

The next destination was Madrid for a couple of nights with accommodation at Gran Meliá Palacio de Los Duques, an urban luxury resort conveniently close to Gran Vía and local attractions.

It was then onto a change of scenery as the group made their way down to Costa del Sol, spending their final night seaside at Puente Romano, Marbella – complete with an authentic Flamenco show in Old Town.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), in partnership with United Airlines, recently invited twelve Australian Flight Centre agents to experience the Entertainment Capital of the World – from a whole new perspective.

As part of Las Vegas’ annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, eight agents hit the #StripAtNight in the world’s largest evening race as they participated in the 10K, half or full marathon; with the other four agents representing the cheer squad.

Though it wasn’t all hard work, the group was treated to some of Vegas’ renowned live entertainment offerings, including Aussie quartet, Human Nature; Spiegelworld’s new Atomic Saloon Show; and the Blue Man Group, featuring a VIP Behind-the-Blue meet and greet.

Beyond the Strip, agents got physical as they drove heavy machinery in an adult-sized sandpit at Dig This, as well as marvelled at the Grand Canyon – in style – with Grand Canyon Helicopters. Speaking of style, the group also enjoyed world-class hospitality at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, followed by Wynn Las Vegas and Encore.
