‘At Uniworld, we are always trying to go the extra mile to ensure our valued trade partners have the best possible assets that offer their clients choice and inspiration when looking for a luxury holiday,’ said Chris Townson, UK MD.
‘Big, immersive and luxury bucket list adventures, including land extensions, are still very much in demand from our customer base, and the new 2024 brochure really reflects that, but also the eye-catching design gives agents the versatility to sell our long-haul journeys and sophisticated European itineraries with a simple flip, and display our breadth of product more effectively.’
New for 2024
There will be two Cruise & Rail Sacred Ganges & Maharajas Express departures in 2024; the Maharajas Express train will start its journey going through the Golden Triangle in Mumbai and end in New Delhi, and include an additional stop at Fatehpur Sikri.
This coast-to-coast 18-day journey combines seven nights’ sailing aboard the Ganges Voyager II from Kolkata, with the luxury private train journey, spending an additional two nights in Oberoi Hotels in New Delhi and Mumbai.
The brochure also includes a host of new extensions within the Spectacular Journeys collection, including ‘Splendours of Egypt & The Nile with Sharm El Sheikh & The Red Sea,’ ‘India’s Golden Triangle & the Sacred Ganges’ and ‘Varanasi and Timeless Wonders of Vietnam, Cambodia & the Mekong with Ha Long Bay.’
The brochure offers the option of two front covers which can be racked side-by-side, and allows agents to protect onward sales by excluding a Uniworld call to action.
Uniworld is giving UK agents the opportunity to win two holidays, one of these, a 13-day ‘India’s Golden Triangle and Sacred Ganges’ voyage, combining a seven-night cruise with a luxury tour of the Golden Triangle, including two visits to the Taj Mahal – one at sunset and one at sunrise.
The voyage sees Ganges Voyager II sail roundtrip from Kolkata over seven nights, offering passengers the chance to visit a host of villages to engage with local people and customs, and experience the on board wellness programme including the Serenity River Spa.
Exploring the Golden Triangle, passengers will stay in three luxury Oberoi hotels in Jaipur, New Delhi and Agra, exploring the cities’ attractions, from palaces to trishaw rides through Bengali streets to walking tours of four UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Agents will need to earn points on Uniworld bookings (valid on bookings made between August 1 – October 31, 2023), with more points available for higher cabins, long-haul bookings and 2023 departures. The agent with the most points on the closing date of October 31 will win the top prize, with the second prize being an eight-day Christmas Market cruise for two, with more prizes beyond.
Townson explained, ‘As a huge thank you to our hard-working agent partners for helping us to achieve a bumper year of sales, we are excited to launch one our biggest incentives yet, with a host of incredible holiday prizes for the deserving winners, including our iconic top selling Indian Sacred Ganges itinerary and the chance to experience a magical European Christmas Market river cruise.’
