What is a guaranteed departure?

As most of you already know, guaranteed departures are trips that bring together several “individual” travelers to benefit from preferential rates and group logistics. Receptour has been organizing guaranteed departures for several years now. Why? Simply because this type of tour is beneficial  for all parties involved.

An excellent choice for agencies!

Putting together a group of at least 30 people for a trip can  be difficult. Each person has different needs and desires, it can be time-consuming and people might be reluctant to join a group that was previously formed.

With guaranteed departures, agencies no longer need to match a quota nor risk having small margin. Usually, guaranteed departures are made for groups of at least 2 people. Yes, only one couple is needed for the trip to be guaranteed!

Whether there are 2 or 20 people travelling, the departure will not be compromised.

Available flights and options

As you can see, guaranteed departures are all about convenience. Travel agents can directly showcase the tour to their customers.

Flights may be included in the price as well. The agent can also offer optional activities. This way, your travellers can enjoy a personalized journey, while still benefiting from the comfort of a group.
