1. SPOTTED… helping Sydney families in need


While most Australian’s enjoyed their Christmas surrounded by family, swapping presents and indulging in a feast fit for a king; for Sydney’s homeless, poor and at-risk families, Christmas was not necessarily a time of joy.

But thanks to the generous support of TravelManagers and Hoot Holidays who collectively donated over 200 cans of food to Sydney’s Exodus Foundation’s Christmas can drive, food parcels were delivered to disadvantaged Sydney families bringing some much-needed Christmas cheer.

TravelManagers’ Product Executive Sandra Reucker, organized the can donation for its fourth consecutive year.

“I was thrilled with the support received from my fellow national partnership office and Hoot Holidays teams. We collectively donated over 200 cans with a value of approximately $700, which included items of request such as casseroles, spaghetti, baked beans, tuna and pasta. The Exodus Foundation do such wonderful work within our community and it’s such a privilege to know that our contribution helped bring a smile to some of Sydney’s disadvantaged families, even if it was for just one day,” says Reucker.

TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager Michael Gazal, applauds Reucker’s commitment to The Exodus Foundation.

“TravelManagers’ philosophy of giving back to the community mirrors our business philosophy of going the extra mile.  The opportunity for our team to do something that benefits those in need within our local community really sums up the culture of TravelManagers and we are extremely proud of that.”

The Exodus Foundation supports those in need throughout Australia, not only at Christmas time but 365 days a year. Click here to donate or to find out more about how you can help.


2. SPOTTED… skiing through Canada’s winter wonderland

ETG Group

A group of five lucky Express Travel Group representatives recently enjoyed an action-packed familiarisation trip through the winter wonderlands of Banff and Panorama in Canada.

Sno’n’Ski Business Development Manager (Victoria) Kathleen Bowles hosted the group on a five-night adventure that encompassed some of Canada’s most iconic winter experiences.

The group were whisked from Calgary International Airport straight to lunch at the Banff Gondola, so their first views of Banff National Park were enjoyed from 2,281 metres altitude.

Over the next three nights the team enjoyed a sample of the very best of Banff and Lake Louise, including full days of skiing at Sunshine Village and Lake Louise, a range of interactive site inspections and plenty of fine food, après events and mountain hospitality.

Accommodation was provided at the majestic Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel and the centrally located Mountaineer Lodge in Lake Louise.

Highlights of Lake Louise included dinner and a private sleigh ride at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and a guided tour through the icy beauty of Johnston Canyon.

Next on the itinerary was Panorama Mountain Resort, where the Sno’n’Ski and ETG group were welcomed with a thrilling snowmobile tour courtesy of Toby Creek Adventures.

The team then checked into their one-bedroom condominiums at the Panorama Springs and settled in for the next day and a half of excitement.

As well as experiencing a full day of skiing at Panorama Mountain Resort the group enjoyed a range of site inspections and an indulgent amount of wining and dining.

Several team members managed to sneak in one last ski before their private transfer to Calgary Airport, the perfect end to a journey through winter wonderland.

This first-rate famil itinerary is an example of Sno’n’Ski’s dedication to providing Australia’s finest wholesale ski offerings, from agent education to service and price point.
