Fresh talent, innovative training for the travel industry.
Tourico Holidays Travel Academy welcomes inaugural class in January 2014.

ORLANDO, FL (USA) – December 16, 2013 – Global wholesaler Tourico Holidays is launching a Travel Academy in January, offering industry-focused training for ambitious, business-minded college graduates. Selected applicants have the unique chance to gain a competitive edge and kick start a career in the travel industry. The Travel Academy is an important part of Tourico’s growth strategy; through the support and development of young talent, the company aims to soar to new levels of success.

The first Tourico Holidays Travel Academy class will begin in January 2014.
Thirty applicants are accepted for each of the four quarterly 10-week sessions throughout the year. Those interested in participating must first apply online then pass a series of interviews and assessments before being selected for the program. Growing leaders in key areas, the program is taught by executives, experienced travel professionals and highly-qualified guest professors. The curriculum focuses on negotiation management, problem-solving skills, user training for various software programs, presentation planning, and project implementation in the travel industry. The program not only provides insight into relevant theories, but also exposes students to the exciting side of the travel industry through jet-setting field trips, hands-on projects, and applicable workshops.

The intensive training provides the perfect basis for beginning a career at Tourico Holidays. From the first day of class, students receive full support, including a base salary, accommodation, laptops and access to various activities in the Orlando area. Upon completion, graduates interview for positions primarily in product development but potentially in sales, marketing, and operations.  Successful students will be placed in positions best suited to their skills and personality. Every fully qualified and successful student receives a job offer to join the Tourico Holidays team.

One of the first participants in the Travel Academy is Eleonora Penna. After completing her Marketing studies in her home country of Italy, she moved to the U.S. to study International Management at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Travel has always been a passion of hers and inspired her to search for relevant training programs in the industry. When asked about her experiences while searching for the right program, Eleonora Penna said: “Only few companies have strong and interesting programs like the Academy at Tourico Holidays. I believe that the Academy will give me the right negotiation, presentation, and marketing skills that I will need to be able to grow with and within Tourico Holidays and to develop a great career path into the travel and tourism industry.”

For Uri Argov, Founder and CEO of Tourico Holidays, the training program is a win-win situation for participants and the company. “Not only does this program give graduates the tools and training they need to succeed within our company, it also ensures our partners are benefiting from highly trained representatives in every department,” said Argov.

Tourico Holidays Expands Its Travel Activities & Attractions Business with Outrageous Selections.

Travel wholesaler adds travel activities & attractions that range from the bizarre to the incredible.

ORLANDO, Fla. − January 31, 2013 − Tourico Holidays, a high-tech travel wholesale company, today announced that it is significantly expanding its travel activities & attractions business with inventory that includes the world’s most outrageous selection of experiences and adventures. With its unparalleled selection of more than 9,000 activities & attractions in 90 countries, Tourico Holidays now serves as the single destination for the most unique and remarkable travel experiences, such as shark cage diving in South Africa, skydiving in Prague, spelunking in Iceland, or bioluminescent kayaking in Puerto Rico.

“We’ve got access to exclusive inventory that can make any travelers’ wildest dream come true,” said Uri Argov, President and CEO of Tourico Holidays. “Whether you want to eat at one of the finest restaurants in the world, or you want to spend the evening in a London dungeon, there’s an experience for everyone and for every budget. These are truly once-in-a-lifetime experiences that you won’t be able to find anywhere else − and we offer them at a significant discount from retail.”

By continuing to aggressively expand its travel activities & attractions business, Tourico Holidays is pursuing a market that is ripe for the company’s technical innovation and unrivaled selection. Recent research indicates that U.S. travel activities & attractions alone is a $27 billion market, making it nearly twice as large as the U.S. car rental segment. The market also shows tremendous opportunity for growth as it’s estimated that only one third of all travel activities, events, attractions and tours are currently booked online.

“Further dedicating our technical capabilities and resources to this area of travel will allow us to deliver some compelling innovations that are certain to delight both our travel partners and everyday travelers,” Argov said. “Over the coming months, we’re going to unveil a number of these innovations designed to bring the power of wholesale pricing to the palm of every traveler’s hand − and deliver a new standard of savings that has previously been unavailable to the general public.”
