The FAM is open for agents of any age who have completed the mandatory short snackable size training modules on its Contiki U E-learning Training courses. Beginning in Budapest on May 12, 2019 and ending in Split on May 18, 2019, Contiki’s first FAM announcement for 2019 will feature a week of world class cities, stunning islands, amazing eats such as goulash and grappa, and swimming in the stunning Dalmatian Coast.

Interested agents of all ages and regions are encouraged to apply today as space is limited.

How to join

To be eligible for this FAM trip, agents must have completed the mandatory Contiki U E-learning training courses, which include Introduction to Contiki, ‘Europe with Contiki’, ‘Identifying the Contiki Customer’, and ‘How to sell to millennials

To apply, agents will be required to tell Contiki in 100 words or more, how they plan to increase their Contiki sales after completing the FAM, and send their application form to no later than Mar. 16, 2019.

"Travel advisors who travel with us this May on our ‘Budapest and Croatia Sailing’ FAM will not only get to experience Contiki up close and personal in what will be some of the most sought-after destinations this summer by young Canadians (especially after this winter storm in eastern Canada), but they’ll also learn more about our adventures along the Dalmatian Coast," Sheralyn Berry, president, Contiki Canada, told PAX. "There’s no better way to learn about a destination than by actually exploring it, so advisors on this FAM will get a true taste of Europe with Contiki that in turn, they can then relay their experience back to when they’re home selling to clients."

The week-long FAM trip starts off in Budapest and ends in Croatia.

For more information, and details, agents are asked to contact their local sales manager.
