GROUPS

Booking groups is a lot different than booking individual travel, and for your first group booking, get in touch with one of the Michelles to help walk you through it.

Groups guide


Packages

Each supplier requires a different number of people or room for a group, so be sure to check their requirements and reach out to the supplier's group department with any questions.


Flights

Group flights are much different than booking individual flights. Payment dates and methods, what's included, and terms and conditions will vary. Reach out to the supplier for more information.


Ocean Cruise

Ocean cruise groups are often a very low risk way to give group sales a try. Each line handles them in a different way, and most cruise lines will offer training on creating groups. They will also have a Groups department you can contact, which is a good idea for your first one to make sure you are clear on all the details.


River Cruise

It's also possible to book river cruise groups, but the requirements are not the same as ocean cruise groups and you should reach out to the supplier directly.


Tours

Group tours are also an option available to you. Some suppliers will allow you to put a group into their scheduled departures or charter full coaches. Again, it's always best to reach out to the supplier's groups department.


Weddings

When booking wedding groups, there are a lot of moving pieces. You should coordinate with the supplier's groups department, and possibly also with a wedding department (for resorts and cruises).


For all options, it's your responsibility to make your client aware of all payment dates, term and conditions, inclusions, exclusions, etc.
