Trade staff – sign up to Touchdown for money off cruises and more

The company arranges travel for more than 35,000 people from the industry – along with their friends and family – every year, saving clients up to 70 per cent on their holidays

Touchdown | Travel Industry Services is the only provider of discounted cruises, resorts, flights and holiday extras for the travel industry.

Touchdown now arranges travel for more than 35,000 travel trade staff each year, saving clients up to 70 per cent on their holidays.

What’s more, friends and family can travel, too – often without a member of travel industry staff – and Clia members enjoy more savings.

Travel industry employees can access the exclusive rates once they are registered via Touchdown’s website. The company sends out weekly emails with the latest offers for cruises, resorts and flights.

They work closely with a number of airlines, including Virgin Atlantic and British Airways and, for cruise lovers, there’s an incredible amount of choice. Touchdown now has more than 25 ocean and river cruise lines to choose from, including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Silversea, MSC, Norwegian and AmaWaterways – with even more river options being added in 2019. Prices are updated daily with the latest #ExclusivelyTravelIndustry rates.

Look out for their roadshows, with prize draws, and new bi-annual magazine for even more offers.

The story so far…
Touchdown and Travel Industry Services have remained at the forefront of travel industry staff holidays for nearly 30 years. Earlier this year, they joined forces to create a one-stop travel shop for travel industry professionals.

The company now has 50 staff based at offices in Twickenham and Gatwick. Clients can book with confidence as it is a member of bodies such as Abta and Atol.

“Our mission remains unchanged. We will simply have more resources to continue building products that delight our customers,” says Touchdown and Travel Industry Services managing director, Nigel Smithson, “and cruise is a significant and ever-growing part of our product portfolio.”
