“It’s so encouraging to receive this feedback from our travel agent partners and to see this continued support after a hard 18 months in the industry,” says Gai Tyrrell, managing director Australasia of Globus family of brands.

“With the announcement of international travel restrictions easing next month, we’re seeing a significant increase in enquiry and we’re excited to be able to continue driving business to our trade partners at this time.”

In July, GFOB touring brands Globus and Cosmos recorded their biggest day of sales since the pandemic began, with GFOB attributing this success largely to its valued trade partners.

In September, confidence grew with GFOB recording a 37 per cent increase in web traffic.

“Our trade partners have been instrumental in securing sales and helping out our customers throughout the pandemic and we’re so grateful for their support. This increase in traffic and enquiries showcases this hard work and demonstrates how Australians are itching to travel once again,” said Gai. 

To thank agents and reflect on this past 18 months, GFOB has also released a heartwarming video which focusses on the company’s core values of integrity, courage, passion, accountability, collaboration, and service, while celebrating the agent community for their fantastic support.
