Oceanside Travel Joins Carlson Wagonlit Travel Associate Program
|Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) Canada recently welcomed Oceanside Travel, Inc., with offices in Qualicum Beach and Nanaimo, British Columbia, into its Associate program, which offers independently owned travel agencies the opportunity to grow and enhance their offerings in partnership with CWT. |
Oceanside Travel has been part of the Qualicum Beach community for several decades, and in early 2010 expanded by opening a branch office in Nanaimo. Ton den Hartigh, who co-owns Oceanside Travel with his wife, Lynn Alexander, said that as his business continues to grow, he feels the time is right to take advantage of the resources CWT can offer to his team of experienced industry professionals and Oceanside's loyal clientele.
"Oceanside has enjoyed recent growth despite a difficult economic climate because of our strong commitment to providing excellent service and travel expertise to our customers," den Hartigh shared. "CWT is also known for its exceptional client focus, so we already feel right at home in these first few weeks of joining the organization."
In addition to new, exclusive offers and services CWT/Oceanside Travel can now extend to its clients, the agency also can now provide travel services in conjunction with CWT's client membership programs, which include the Royal Bank of Canada's RBC Rewards program, for which CWT is the exclusive travel sponsor, and CARP, for which CWT is the exclusive Approved Travel Agency.
