Great Corporate Travel Deals

Many corporations embark on frequent business traveling trips all through the year. Companies of such personnel provide them with all the necessities for a comfortable, safe, and entertaining travel. For this purpose companies hire professional travel consultants or business travel Management Companies to provide them with good travel deals.

These corporate travel management companies deal with various issues like purchasing airline tickets, perfect accommodation packages that involve hotels and car reservations, information about destinations, and all kind of travel news. They offer a variety of deals with several packages in various price ranges. These travel management companies keep in mind that a particular corporate company is their regular customer and hence, supplies them with discounted rates on travel tickets as well as hotel accommodations in the visiting city. This builds a good rapport with the corporate organizations and guarantees a confirmed customer.

Many websites based on travel planning and related information offer several travel deals for corporate traveling at affordable prices. The corporate travel deals offer reduce costs with agreement policies and estimate travel budget with reporting and analysis, help in managing hectic travel schedule of employees with innovative solutions and provide 24 hours traveler support at no extra charges.

Corporate companies availing travel amenities via a travel agency should enquire about the available discounts and additional facilities provided by the agency. Some great corporate travel deals include leisure facilities such as gymnasiums, swimming pools, pool tables, bars, and golf courses free of cost. This grants the employees with much needed relaxation and refreshment after the long hours of work.

The websites advertising great corporate travel deals should be checked for their reliability and genuineness quotient before placing orders and making payments online. Each travel deal is distinct from the other. Each is based on various factors such as frequency of the company making bookings through them, the number of personnel traveling, the destinations, and whether the travel is being done in holiday seasons or off-seasons.

Last Minute Travel – Getting the Most

Some people wait to plan for the last minute travel.
Procrastinating in planning your travel does not work to your advantage. When
planning a trip overseas, it pays off to be prepared because you are going into
unfamiliar territory and there is so much you need to research unless you have
been to that place before. Even that isn’t a good idea.
Booking a travel package beforehand helps to
get a better travel deal and may not be the case if you wait until the last
minute. Frantically searching for the last minute travel deals
puts us in a position of desperation and we will possibly accept the first deal
that comes to us.

However, since the travel industry has taken the
Internet by storm, there seems to be many possibilities of getting good prices
when you book a last minute deal. In fact, some online travel agencies offer
last minute deals because they know that there will be some people who wait
until the last minute to book their flights.

These deals have become very common and so there are always
going to be people who wait until it is almost time to go on the trip. Offline travel
agents
do not cater too much for these travel deals. Instead, you
have a better chance when you book online for the best travel packages and will
get a good deal most of the time.

There has been a rise in online travel websites that
offer various types and prices on travel deals that will suit your budget. You have the convenience in
booking the travel package online and the travel agency will take care
of the rest.

Be careful during the holidays or if it is a family
travel
because holidays are very competitive and the rates can be a little
higher. Also when you are traveling you’re your family; it requires more travel
planning and preparation. When you book
the last minute travel, you might go ahead and choose a hotel that may
not turn out to be very welcoming, so be sure to ask your travel agent for
suggestions.

It really is more convenient to book online so I think that
is why most people wait until the ninth hour. Did you know that online travel
package rates are more competitive than the prices that the local travel agents
quote to you? The Internet is the solution to last minute air travelers.
However, with that in mind air travel is something that needs time and
attention, so give your flight booking at least a week ahead of the time of
travel to reap better benefits from your vacation.

Online travel booking has made it easier for people
to travel for sure and there are more people traveling than usual especially
the baby boomers. The question to you is when will you be planning your next
vacation? Make sure you are readily prepared even when there are last minute
deals to snatch.

Hassle-free Travel with Golf Travel Cases

Golf vacations have become more and more popular. People now travel specifically to golf resorts to enjoy this sport during their vacations. For those traveling specifically for a golf vacation, or for any other time when golf clubs will be taken on a trip, whether explicitly for golf or taken “just in case,” the golfer wants to know that their golf clubs are safe and also that their clubs will be easy to travel with, since without their clubs, the vacation is basically a wasted trip.

These golfers are traveling in a variety of ways, usually by car or by air. During the summer, it is not uncommon to see, as many golf travel cases at the airport as there are regular luggage. Even during the winter months, many travelers set out with their golf clubs to resorts in warmer climates.

While traveling with golf clubs – and any golfer knows it is better to use their own clubs then borrowed ones, it is important to protect the golf clubs whether traveling by car or by air. There are many different golf travel cases to choose from.

The most popular with travelers seem to be golf travel bags with wheels. In fact, most golf travel cases do have wheels, which set them apart from standard golf bags used while golfing at courses within a few miles of a person’s home. These bags are very convenient for people who plan to spend a lot of time carrying their clubs around since a set a golf clubs can become very heavy, especially for those with back problems or cannot lift very much weigh for any reason.

There are a variety of golf travel bags to choose from, depending on the needs and wants of the golfer.

The first type is soft travel golf bags. The advantages of soft travel bags are that they are usually lighter and more compact. These types of golf travel bags are great for people traveling by car. These soft travel bags can be found with padded sides for extra protection, these types of travel bags are usually more economical. They come in a variety of sizes from smaller weekend bags to traditional size golf bags. Golfers, who cannot lift much weight, can use soft travel bags which also come in lightweight varieties. These types of golf travel bags typically do not include wheels, making them the exception to the rule that practically every travel golf bag includes wheels. By eliminating the feature of wheels, the bag is usually lighter to carry.

For people traveling by air it is usually advisable to travel with hard golf travel cases. These cases will protect the golf clubs throughout the course of the trip and survive the abuse that comes to any baggage as a result of air travel. Hard cased golf travel bags give the golf clubs added protection and at the same time giving the golfer added piece of mind knowing their golf clubs are safe.

Whether hard or soft, wheeled or lightweight, golf travel bags also have other differences allowing the golfer to find one that is just right for him or her while traveling with golf clubs. Some will collapse, which is great for those traveling by car. Some golf travel bags have plenty of compartments for other golf paraphernalia and others are meant to be very compact. Golf travel bags also come in several different sizes, which is great since different people use different size golf clubs, for instance, men will generally use longer clubs then women.

Golf clubs are without a question, a golfer’s most valuable asset while traveling on a golf vacation; their golf travel bag should and normally is their next most valuable possession on their golf vacation. Choosing the bag that is just right will make all the difference in a golf vacation.

A New Era In Travel

First, I want to get right to the meat and potatoes and show you a very logical opportunity that just makes sense not matter how you slice it. Here are some important facts:

The travel industry is by far the largest industry in the world. It accounts for about 7 trillion dollars a year world wide and about 1.3 trillion in the US alone. In the US that calculates to about 2.4 million dollars a minute or 40 thousand dollars a second. The travel industry is growing 23% faster than the world economy and will continue historical growth for the next 18 to 20 years. This of course is because of that group of people born between 1946 and 19 64 known as the almighty baby boomers. This group has changed every industry they have ever touched and they are entering retirement at the rate of 1 person every 8 seconds for the next 18+ years. When people retire, they want to travel. That is why the industry is expected to double in the next decade. The industry size and growth capacity is enormous. If we took telecom, health and nutrition and financial services, all of which generate billions of dollars in the direct marketing industry, and you combine them, it wouldn’t come even close to the size of the travel industry. It is always a smart move to be positioned in front of a growth industry and there has never been anything of this magnitude in the entire history of American business.

Barry Diller, the owner of Comcast bought Expedia.com for 5.1 billion dollars. Some holding company that I am not familiar with recently bought Orbitz.com for 5.6 billion dollars and Donald Trump has invested I don’t know how many millions building his online travel company from scratch. To me, that is a clue. They know its coming and they want to be in front of it. But the beauty of this opportunity is that those companies can’t compete with us. We are going after the prize of being the largest internet travel company in the world and create 10,000 millionaires inside of 10 years. I know that might sound grandiose, but stay with me because once you understand our business model, it will be very clear as to why it is not only realistic but very probable.

Right now, about 82% of the US population already books their travel online. The travel agency community has shrunk by 200,000 + travel agencies in the last 10 years because everyone is adopting the internet as their travel agent. It’s convenient. That is why Expedia, Travelocity, Orbitz, Priceline etc…have all be trying to brand themselves to grab a piece of the market as this transition occurs from brick and mortar travel agencies to click and order travel agencies. Not only do they want a piece of the existing market, more importantly they want to get in front of what is to come. Expedia.com for example is spending about 5 million dollars a week for marketing. About 80% of the revenue that comes in the door is being reinvested into their branding efforts. But, 20% of a whole lot is still a whole lot. It’s a great business model. But there is one problem; people are booking their travel with faceless corporations and there is no relationship in the equation anymore.

With YTB, you own a full service online travel agency with more extensive features than anyone else. From airline tickets, hotels, all inclusive vacation packages, cruises, golf tee times, Broadway show tickets, sporting events, ski passes, concert tickets, amusement park admissions, travelers insurance, buy foreign currency, just about anything travel and entertainment related and with every major travel provider in the world. We don’t sell something kind of like Carnival, Disney, Sandals, Frontier Airlines, Alamo etc…that is exactly what we sell. As a matter of fact, last year we booked over 10,000 weeks on Carnival Cruiselines making us the #3 booking agent in the world for Carnival. They treat us good!

All we have to do is point people to our website and YTB pays us 60% of the commission. The competition can not compete with this distribution model and here is why: We are bringing relationships back to an industry that the internet has been taking away. The convenience of online booking is still the same; it’s just that people can now put a face to the website. They book their travel as usual. They get to stay in the same hotels, the same all inclusive vacations, the same cruises, the same car rentals and they pay the same price, maybe even a little better. The difference is you. Here is a good example; my Mother will never go to another travel site because I’m her son and since nothing changes except for who gets paid, she books with me. It’s not like the telecom industry where Travelocity or Orbitz is gonna send my Mom a check for $50 bucks if she switches back. And, if one of my buddy’s books their travel with someone else, they can forget calling me the next time they need help moving. This is a perfect business model for the travel industry because over 80% of all vacations are already booked through a recommendation.
Now about YTB and why I have made a life-long commitment to this company: YTB is a 6 year old publicly traded company. They are seeing a 400% growth rate, eclipsing 1 billion dollars in travel bookings this year and have recently made it in the top 50 travel agencies in the world. The industry is taking notice because we came out of nowhere. The first few years was putting it all together. It was just in this last year that we moved into a perfect position to dominate the industry. YTB has also acquired a bank and 3 car dealerships, with many other auto manufactures coming soon. This part of our business goes live on June 1st. Just as travel has migrated to the internet, so are auto sales. When people purchase a vehicle, they usually go to the internet to research it. Because of the internet, many consumers know what the dealer cost is and suggested retail price before they even walk onto the car lot. And some people know more about the details of the car that they want than the sales person does. The dealerships are turning into nothing more than showroom/service centers because of the internet. It’s just heading that way. People are now going to be able to purchase a car, new or used from their local dealerships and you get paid because they were recommended from your website. There is a $500 commission paid for every purchase and we get 60% of that commission. We simply point people to our website and everything is done for us. Just as YTB is in front of the internet travel trend and is quickly and undeniably becoming the largest travel agency in the world, they are doing it with cars as well. There is a whole lot more coming with this company!

One of the things that I was taken back by was the fact that YTB has protected those of us in the field. They are the first company in the history of direct marketing that has filed a bill of rights with the SEC along with other state and federal regulatory agencies that insures our income for life. They can’t change our pay or take it away. If by chance they merge with another company, that company has to honor our income or the merger can not take place. Too many times people have invested years of hard work only to have a company change things up and either decrease or even eliminate their income. With YTB, that can’t happen.

Another thing that they did was issue a 100% no risk written guarantee to earn no less than $6,000 in the first year of following their system or they’ll pay you the difference. So if by some crazy chance you only earned $2500 in your first year of following their system, not only would you already be profitable, YTB would still write you a check for the $3,500 difference.

Right after I went out to St. Louis to see the company, I met up with a friend in Chicago who has been working with this company for close to 3 years. His income that month was a little over $125,000 and growing by at least another $5,000 each month. Now we both know it is not common to hit checks like that but it does happen when people are in the right place at the right time and ready for the opportunity. $125k a month is almost an impressive income but what really got me was that more than $73,000 of that was purely residual. I have seen quite a few checks like that being passed out in direct marketing over the years but I have never seen that kind of ratio. Typically, money like that is mainly derived from one time bonuses.

Every once in a while a phenomenon occurs in the direct marketing industry and there is no doubt that YTB is one of them. The industry has stood up and taken notice. And the interesting thing is that most people are not really aware of what is being done behind the scenes right now. But, it is almost a cliché in this industry to hear about how companies are going to be the next billion dollar giant and how the company owners are great business people with impeccable integrity. I was almost to the point of jumping up and strangling the next hypester who told me that. With YTB, you only need to allow yourself to see it for what it is and the rest of the story unfolds itself.

Now, here is the benefit. By owning an online travel agency, you are engaged in the travel profession. This gives you access to a side of travel that the average consumer never gets to see. You are allowed insider vacation packages that are deeply discounted, courtesy upgrades only available to those in the travel business, not to mention that since you are in the travel business, you get to write off your leisure vacations as well. And, you also get paid 60% of the vendor commission back on your own travel.

So to sum this up:

1. We are in an industry that people are already sold on.

2. We are in the largest industry in the world that is doubling in size.

3. We get to create additional tax write offs.

4. We get to travel like an insider.

5. We have a no risk guarantee to make a profit.

6. We have a bill of rights to protect our income forever.

The total cost is a one time $449.95 and a monthly licensing fee of $49.95 to maintain the hosting and back office functionalities of our travel business. We a have over 300 + people at the home office working for us on a full time basis. There will be close to 1,000 employees by the end of the year. We just point people to our site and YTB does the rest. YTB is also building a 130,000 square foot facility in Greater St. Louis and you are more than welcome to visit the home office. Almost every Tuesday, they have what is called the Red Carpet event. Every week, between 800 to 1200 people fly out to take a look at the company. The day starts with a tour of the facilities and meeting the employees. Then they charter everyone over to the convention center where they lay out a huge buffet lunch. Shortly after everyone eats, they give a presentation on the business model. It is a very dynamic event but the impressive thing is that they don’t hype it up. They give people a very objective look at why this makes sense. I haven’t had one person visit the company and not get involved.

As questions come up, don’t hesitate to call me anytime day or night. I am passionate about this business. We are showing people how to travel a lot better for less money, be able to write it off on their taxes and get paid to do it. It’s pretty much that simple. For those of us who are a little more entrepreneurial, there is a much more significant opportunity available. We are riding a trillion dollar market through an 18 to 20 year growth spurt and then binding it all together for sustained success through relationships. It just makes sense.

Successfully Yours,

“It is better to know me and not need me, than it is to need me and not know me”

My name is Brian Kiplinger and I live in Northern California with my family. I have been in the home-business industry on a full-time basis for more than 10 years. About 3 years ago I stepped out of the network marketing side and started consulting small business owners. I became frustrated with all the hype on the internet. It seems that it is the same people chasing the same people from one deal to the next and the idea of a life-long residual income has become nothing more than a myth. However, I have always believed that it is possible for the average person to win in this industry, if it is done right. After searching high and low, I have found such an opportunity that delivers on it’s promise of a long term business for the average person. It is not based on any hype but rather a very logical business model & a product that everyone is already sold on. I am looking for individuals who want to be a part of history in the making. We are going to create 10,000 millionaires in the next 10 years and you can be one of them!
