FAM Trips
FAM Trip (Familiarization Trip): Many resort areas, cities, tourism boards, properties, and vendors offer deeply discounted trips to Travel Agents to familiarize them with their location. These trips are offered as “Perks and Courtesies” to travel professionals at the sole discretion of the host. They are usually limited in availability. There are generally hundreds of FAMs at any given time. The following are examples of recent FAM trips experienced by RTAs…
