Trade launch from Travel The Unknown

Experiential holiday company, Travel The Unknown, is now selling its trips through the trade for the first time, to destinations including Iran, Ethiopia, Bhutan and the Balkans.

One of the operator's founding directors, Rahul Aggarwal, said: “We have resisted selling through the trade until now because we didn’t want to do it half-heartedly. Our trips require a good level of knowledge for any agent to secure a sale; for example, Iran is one of our most popular destinations, but we appreciate that it is unlikely that most people will have an in-depth knowledge of its sites and culture. We have a well-educated, well-travelled clientele, who like to research a destination thoroughly before committing financially.

“Most of our trips are themed, for example with a focus on archaeology, festivals, tribal encounters, river cruises, rail journeys, food, wildlife and activity. But we also cater for those who are looking for a touch of luxury and R&R on the beach.

“We are offering agents a sliding, generous commission, depending on the number of people booked onto a trip (we have a maximum of 12 people on any given departure).

“We also offer end-to-end agent support, and are more than happy to step in to speak to clients on the agent’s behalf if needs be, to help them to secure the sale and the commission."

As an example of trips, a seven-day Living Bridges of Meghalaya trip to a little-visited region of north-east India, costs from £1,095 per person (or £1,695 including flights).

Agents interested in working with the company should email robert.dee@traveltheunknown.com or call 020-7183 6371.
