We are excited to announce that as of 1 March 2016, Flight Centre Active Travel will be expanding our product range to include sports and events travel packages.
We have been working closely with the key product leaders of Flight Centre Travel Group over the past couple of months discussing our travel offerings, and have their full support with our new venture of sports tourism, which will now include spectator and participation travel packages to global events.
As a result, we will also be changing our business name from Flight Centre Active Travel to Flight Centre Sports & Events.
What does this mean for existing customers and members of Flight Centre Active Travel?
Apart from the name change to Flight Centre Sports & Events, it is 100% business as usual. We are still the same business, and all current bookings will not be affected.
Will there still be a focus on Active Travel packages?
YES, we still have the same passion for delivering rewarding and realistic packages to active events. Our current Active Travel product portfolio will not change, and we will continue to sell packages to the our existing events, and we will add more in the near future.
So what changes will I see?
Apart from the name Flight Centre Sports & Events, we will also sell travel packages to global sporting events such as English Premier League, Motor Sports, Horse Racing, Rugby Union and League.
Plus we also have the capability to offer travel packages to cultural festivals and events, although these will not appear prominently on our website.
These travel packages will be sold under a new offering we have called Go Your Own Way, whereby you can purchase your ticket, and browse a range of accommodation options, allowing you freedom to create your own package. Our sales office will move from Melbourne to the global Flight Centre Travel Group head office in Brisbane.
How will I find you?
Again, it’s business as usual. Our website will be redirected to the new Flight Centre Sports & Events website and all our social media channels will remain the same, so will our 1300 220 293 number. Our experienced travel managers are awaiting your contact to assist with your next Active, Sports or Event travel experience.
With the expansion of our new product range we look forward to continuing to offer you more amazing travel experience to global events.
