… But what does it mean for agents? Insight Vacations recently released its 2015 Premium & Luxury Europe, Britain, Eastern Mediterranean & Morocco collection of 113 holidays, including 14 new itineraries complete with Signature Events across the entire range.
The team at KarryOn have compiled a cheat sheet to help agents understand Insight’s Signature Events and how they can use them to translate into sales.
What is a Signature Event?
This unique collection of ‘Signature Events’ has been designed to offer a holiday of a lifetime. Insight Vacations has handpicked ‘Signature Hotels’, arranged special ‘Signature Evenings’, booked ‘Signature Dining’ in authentic local restaurants and designed exclusive ‘Signature Experiences’ with local experts.
Signature Hotels are handpicked properties in the most desirable, central and scenic locations. These properties are distinctive and chosen to make your holiday all the more memorable. There are 80 Signature hotels featured in the 2015 programme including the Kolbe in Rome, a luxury converted 15th century convent within walking distance of the Roman Forum, the 17th century Borgo San Luigi; a series of terraces located in the Tuscan countryside or the Chateau de Rochecotte located in the Loire Valley, former home of the Duchess Dorothee of Dino and Prince Talleyrand.

Your clients will sample local cuisine at Welcome Dinners, Dine-Around evenings, Freestyle Evenings and Celebration Dinners. In 2015 guests can enjoy a Moroccan feast with belly dancing, a gourmet dinner at Chateau de Rochecotte or choose their own restaurant on a selection of Gold Luxury itineraries with Freestyle Evenings where Insight foots the bill.
