Personal Knowledge and Involvement
We have personally proposed, negotiated, planned, managed and operated travel programs and meetings for more than a quarter of a century. We know hotels and resorts extremely well from a first hand perspective – from the US and Canada to Europe, Asia, the South Pacific, Mexico and South America. We know what works – and just as importantly – what doesn’t.
Experience
Conlin Travel has pioneered many forms of group travel in the 44 years that we have been in business. We know and understand all components of travel programs and have a particularly strong group air department, with guaranteed European group airfares as far out as 2010. We have taken as many 7,000 people to the Rose Bowl – with planning, marketing and execution being done in less than a five-week period. Our staff is proactive, involved and passionate about what we do.
Unique Products
Five summers ago we redeveloped the cruise market for the Great Lakes. We have exciting itineraries – and have perfect ships for groups of either 20, 70 or 280 passengers. The Great Lakes are attracting strong interest in light of recent world events. They also have the advantage of being virtually unexplored by travelers who have “been everywhere” on other incentive or special-interest programs.
Integrity
We operate under an “open book” policy. This is an unusual, but certainly beneficial, business philosophy for group, meeting and incentive buyers. Our pricing is based on either a project or hourly basis; our formulas are simple, straightforward and honest. We start with a detailed budget, modify it as we go forward in planning with the client and end with as easy to follow bill within three weeks of program completion. There are no surprises when you work with us.
Fast and Consistent Response
We are able to respond to your RFP with a full proposal in as little as two days. Our proposals are always custom prepared for you in a consistent manner – allowing you to make quick and accurate comparisons for any destination in the world.
