The Travel Institute’s Holiday Promotion Features ‘Sleigh Full’ of Savings

Opportunities aplenty for advancing specialization and job-readiness skills



FRAMINGHAM, MA, November 29, 2018 – The Travel Institute’s 4th annual “Season of Savings” promotion kicks off today featuring a sleigh full of special deals and training opportunities for travel professionals at all experience levels.


This year’s promotion is built around three diverse elements – membership, certification, and specialization – but with a common thread. “The Travel Institute has one objective – your education, said Diane Petras, CTIE, president, emphasizing the importance of ongoing learning for industry newcomers and veterans alike.


“Each week in December you’ll see significant savings from The Travel Institute that allow you to buy a gift of education for yourself, ensuring your knowledge is current and that you are offering your clients the efficiency, knowledge and insight needed to make sound travel recommendations in the year ahead. In other words, improving your skills now and then delivering on your ‘image of difference’ in the coming year.”


Here’s the lineup of savings:

·         November 29-December 9: Membership – $30 off Premium Membership

·         December 10-16: Certification – $100 off Certified Travel Associate (CTA) program; $200 off Certified Travel Counselor (CTC)/Certified Travel Industry Executive (CTIE) programs

·         December 17-23: Specialization – 30 percent off Destination Specialist and Lifestyle Specialist courses

·         December 24-31: Grab Bag – 15 percent off all products and programs


Members of The Travel Institute will also enjoy an extra 10 percent off all of these promotions, giving those who join during the first week of the promotion even greater savings throughout the rest of December.


“We wanted to kick off this year’s campaign with a focus on Premium Membership,” said Petras, “not only because of the 10 percent across-the-board bonus savings, but also to give this ‘hidden gem’ some prime-time exposure and placement. Just knowing online destination and lifestyle specialist courses – like the new luxury and golf curriculums – are free to Premium Members makes it one of the best gifts of the season!”


In addition, five free webinars will be offered live during the 2018 Season of Savings. Topics range from social marketing and time management to specialization, membership, and new to the industry. Advanced registration is required.


The weekly Hot Tip Tuesday and Friday Five Blog e-communications will also focus on membership, certification, and specialization during December.
