Award-Winning ETS Tours Launches “Get Your Share of $50 Billion Faith-Based Travel Segment” Webinar

Award-winning ETS Tours Launches “Get Your Share of $50 Billion Faith-Based Travel Segment” Webinar

LAKELAND, FL – (October 19, 2021) – Leading Faith-Based Tour Brand, ETS Tours, is pleased to introduce its new webinar program as an easy-to-action training to give Travel Advisors step-by-step guidance on how to tap into this expansive and lucrative segment of the travel industry. The first ETS Tours “Get Your Share of the $50 Billion Faith-Based Travel Segment” webinar will be help on October 27, 2021, at 3 PM Eastern Time.  Travel advisors will learn more about how easy it is to sell faith-based travel, earn 15% commission – an average of 15,000 dollars per group trip (minimum 30 pax), receive 1 for 10 travel credits, and be a part of a life-changing experience for their church leaders and church members.

“Many travel advisors are not aware that Faith-based travel is a 50 – 100-billion-dollar industry, with an estimated 330 million people visiting key religious sites annually,” said Joe Cavarra, President of ETS Tours. “Faith-based travel offers travel advisors an astronomical opportunity! Just think…there are 380,000 churches in the U.S according to the National Congregational Study, and only about 50,000 U.S. churches have travel programs.  Plus, beyond pilgrimages, this sector features a wide range of possibilities, such as retreat trips, religious conferences, youth group outings, and so much more. Now is the time to sign-up to become an ETS Travel Advisor partner, begin planning your first group, and reignite your travel bookings.”

As one of the world leaders in faith-based travel established in 1972, ETS Tours has served thousands of pastors and churches throughout the U.S. and abroad. ETS guests and group leaders, surpassing 350,000 travelers, have returned home with a stronger faith, a better understanding of the Bible, and a deeper commitment to Christ and their church. Denominational leaders see how their clergy members’ ministries are strengthened. Pastors watch as lives are changed, and faith is strengthened. After experiencing their first trip, many leaders make plans for annual trips to religiously significant destinations including the Holy Land, the Mediterranean with faith-based cruises following the Journeys of Paul, and countless other sites of biblical importance.

Further, while pilgrimages continue to be a huge draw, ETS Travel Advisor Partners continue increasing their faith-based travel success with our other offerings that include Marriage retreats, women’s retreats, fellowship retreats booked on awarded winning cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Azamara, and AmaWaterways that feature exclusive guest speakers and keynote sessions. Some even feature full worship services with guest musicians. In Europe, land tours are designed to feature awe-inspiring cathedrals and majestic locations central to the Christian faith. River cruises on the Danube, Rhine, and other beautiful rivers throughout the world engage guests and their faith with a new perspective.  The opportunities are virtually endless!

“So how can you get your share of this niche? The first step is simply talking to your church leader. From our experience, they’re ready to travel and take their church members with them. They’re just waiting for you to ask! It’s really that easy. Most don’t travel because they’re not asked. Check out our first webinar this October 27th for a real world, step-by-step guide to booking your first faith-based travel group and start boosting your revenues right away!” said Cavarra.
