INSIGHT Vacations has appointed Corporate Information Travel as its GSA for Malaysia, excluding Penang, effective October 1.
Corporate Information Travel will be responsible for sales and marketing as well as reservations and operations for Insight Vacations on both a B2B and B2C basis.
“Forging this strong relationship with Corporate Information Travel is timely, as we intend to increase sales in the Malaysian market by 30 per cent within the next two years,” said Sheryl Lim, regional director of Asia, Insight Vacations.
“We are confident that Corporate Information Travel’s experience and network in Malaysia, particularly their expertise in the business travel and MICE sectors, will be invaluable to our growth strategy in Asia,” she added.
Corporate Information Travel’s managing director, Thaddeus Foo, told TTG Asia e-Daily that he was planning to boost sales by leveraging on the company’s travel partners to distribute Insight Vacation’s tour packages throughout Malaysia.
Foo said he would also work with banks and corporations to roll out special promotions for their clients, with airlines on packages that need the airfare component and also come up with special deals for his own database of corporate customers.
Insight Vacations’ sales and marketing operations in Penang will continue to be administered by Nam Ho Travel Service (Malaysia).
