Mosaic Holidays has unveiled its first standalone Jordan brochure.
Previously the operator featured Jordan within its Egypt brochure, however thanks to escalating demand from the trade and consumers for the destination, managing director Sabina Shaida decided the time was right to launch it as a separate programme. “We were one of the first companies to feature the Red Sea resorts in Egypt 10 years ago, and of course, they have nearly reached saturation point. I wanted to go back to our roots of bringing new places to a wider audience. Jordan is the perfect choice for our discerning customers who are looking for something a little bit different,” she said.
“Jordan is often sold as a touring destination but it’s difficult to see the real country on a whirlwind visit, and there is so much to see. From the fertile Jordan Valley to the wilderness of Wadi Rum to the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, there is so much to choose from – it’s a truly awe-inspiring country.”
Shaida urged agents to get behind the programme, saying: “These days it’s really rare to get a truly unique destination to offer your customers as the world is becoming homogenised. However Jordan is one of the few places left which is truly awe-inspiring. It’s a place where you can combine heritage, history, sport and natural beauty in one trip in either a single of multi-centre holiday.”
Mosaic Holidays pays a basic commission of between 10 and 15 per cent and is keen to work with agents on a number of projects, including fam trips and joint promotion opportunities.
Mosaic Holidays offers flights from its partners Royal Jordanian, Monarch Airlines and Egypt Air.
