Following the release of its 2019 Florida brochure in April, Gold Medal has unveiled its new 2019 Caribbean and Mexico brochure, which comes in the wake of a 21% year-on-year increase in passenger numbers and 34% year-on-year increase in room night bookings for 2019 departures to the region.
The new catalogue – due to reach travel agents in the UK today (17 May), includes ten new locations, such as the Excellence Oyster Bay in Jamaica, the Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel in Grenada and Finest Playa Mejeres by Excellence Group in Mexico, and will be applicable for the duration of 2019.
Nick Hughes, sales director of tour operations at Gold Medal and Travel 2, said: “We know our agents value the extended booking period available allowing them to book holidays up to 20 months in advance. Coupled with the expanded range of properties and destinations we are confident that this is our strongest offering to date in the Caribbean and Mexico.
The new brochure incorporates some of the best offers across the destinations and will be accompanied by the point of sale materials to ensure agents are equipped with the best tools to secure those all-important bookings.”
To help celebrate the brochure’s publication, Gold Medal is laying on a trip for 12 travel agents to head down to Mexico to research the country and build their knowledge of the destination. Organized in conjunction with British Airways and Hard Rock Hotels, all agents must do to be eligible for the FAM is book a holiday to Mexico or the Caribbean for 2019, through Gold Medal. Places will be awarded to the top performing agents, the most improved agents and two wild cards.
