What is Educational /Familiarisation Travel?
3ne of the -a.s that the tra$el industr. introduces ne- destinations9 ne- airline routes9 ne- hotels or ne- attractions is to in$ite &otential %*u.ers' (tra$el agents 5 tour o&erators) at a reduced &rice (or free e$en!) to sam&le it themsel$es @ -ith a $ie(ho&efull.!) that the. -ill share their e8&eriences -ith their clients and hence generate *usiness. #his is a tried and tested -a. to sell in our industr. and -e kno- that the more first hand e8&erience .ou ha$e9 the more it makes it easier to sell holida.s. In our segment of the industr.9 (&ilgrimage tra$el) this t.&e of educational tra$el has e$ol$ed and *ecome the norm to introduce the &roduct to the &ros&ecti$e %*' @ the &otential &ilgrim grou& leader. #he su&&liers (hotels9 airlines9 restaurants9 coach com&anies 5 guides) ha$e noticed that o$er a &eriod of time9 the num*er of &artici&ants on the educational tours does not e?uate -ell to the num*er of grou&s that are materialising. Moreo$er9 some leaders are &artici&ating in educational tours to the same destination -ith more than one tour o&erator in a short &eriod of time.

)ome leaders ;oin the grou& -ith no intention of e$er taking out their o-n &ilgrimage tour and for them it is a chea& holida.. #his is -ithout a dou*t a*use of the su&&liers generosit. #he -ord 'educational' of course is misleading9 *ecause it does not state a$aila*le onl. to those -ho are serious a*out leading their o-n &ilgrimage tour. I ha$e *een told9 *. more than one minister that a $isit to the ,ol. 1and enhances his ministr.9 ;ust as &ilgrimage tra$el does. =ll of the su&&liers are financiall. su*sidising educational tours9 -ith a $ie- that their in$estment -ill mature -ith a grou& from each &artici&ant. #his sadl. is not the case9 -hich -ill ha$e a longCterm im&act in organising future educational tours. We the tour o&erators -ill find it harder and harder to organise educational tours *ecause the su&&liers are tired of gi$ing and not seeing a return. )o the *one fide tour leaders -ill loose out. M. friends9 %the -riting is on the -all'9 for those &eo&le -ho think that educational tours are a holida.9 for the. are ruining it for their colleagues. In conclusion9 let me &ut a smile on .our faceA. 1ast -eek I -as discussing -ith a minister his itinerar. for his forthcoming &ilgrimage to the ,ol. 1and. ,e had *een -ith me on an educational tri&. ,e -as indeed one of our success stories. ,o-e$er9 -hen -e del$ed into more detail of his tour9 he asked me9 %6o -e get an. free lunches as -e had on .our tour?'
