AAT Kings has launched its new Aboriginal Culture & Australia Highlights tour, as part of the group’s new 2024/2025 touring season.
The limited season guided holiday features destinations from city to outback across Melbourne, Uluru, Sydney and Cairns over 13 days, with a focus on local connection, cultural immersion, sustainable footprints and wildlife and nature.
Confirmation of definite departures, enhancements to its digital brochure and a new itinerary combining popular sights with a focus in Aboriginal culture were among developments emphasised by AAT Kings CEO Ben Hall this week.
AAT Kings recently conducted consumer research across Australia and New Zealand, aimed at deciphering the post-Covid traveller mindset and what is in store for domestic and international travel in 2023.
AAT Kings is announcing its 2022-2023 season with an interactive brochure, aimed at helping agents working in varied environments enter a new era of travel. The new season brochure gives agents and customers a multi-sensory experience including embedded videos, pop up animations and immersive timelines designed with the user in mind. It also retains the brand’s customisable call to action (CTA) technology, allowing agents to create personalised brochures to suit customers’ needs, including the ability to add wish-list tours and travel agent details (including logos) before sending to clients.
