Express Travel Group will kick off 2019 by providing its members access to the ‘best expertise’ in Africa via a new relationship with Bench Africa.

Literally as the clock ticks over to 1 January 2019, Express Travel Group (ETG) will commence a preferred partnership with the Best Speciality Wholesaler in Australia.

As part of the arrangement, Bench Africa will distribute travel packages through ETG’s networks – Independent Travel Group, Select Travel Group and italktravel.

The agency group’s Executive General Manager, Ari Magoutis, said having Bench Africa on board will provide members with access to the best expertise for Africa, as well as top service and support.

“Both we, and our members, are very impressed with Bench Africa and all that they offer to support the Travel Advisor community.”
