IGLTA and TTC join forces to promote greater LGBTQ+ inclusivity in travel
The International LGBTQ+ Travel Association (IGLTA) today welcomed The Travel Corporation (TTC) to its elite group of global partners. The international travel group, which includes 29 brands, delivers a diverse spectrum of welcoming experiences that complement IGLTA’s efforts to advance LGBTQ+ travel around the world.
“We are excited, and very proud, to be strengthening our partnership with IGLTA,” said Brett Tollman, CEO of TTC, parent company to the award-winning family of brands that includes Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Uniworld and The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. “Delivering excellence in service and unforgettable travel experiences for everyone is at the heart of all that we do, and we look forward to working together to grow diversity and inclusivity across the global travel industry.”
Some of TTC’s brands have been active IGLTA members for many years and the company has invested in sensitivity training to ensure that all staff members worldwide are delivering the best possible service to LGBTQ+ travellers. With the global partnership, TTC is further uniting its portfolio—which also includes Contiki, African Travel, Brendan Vacations, Busabout, Adventure World and AAT Kings—around its efforts to drive industry change and amplify its LGBTQ+ welcoming message.
“TTC’s respected brands operate in 70 countries and offer everything from tours to river cruises to boutique hotels with options for all ages and budgets,” said IGLTA President/CEO John Tanzella. “It will be a pleasure to showcase this diverse range to LGBTQ+ travellers because we know that it’s paired with a deep commitment to inclusivity.”
