PRLog - April 11, 2014 - STAMFORD, Conn. -- Effective immediately, Visits Plus, Inc., a leading U.S. based wholesale tour operator that develops, sells and operates leisure, corporate and higher education travel arrangements to Asia, will channel all of its current and future tour products through Explorient.com. Established in 2004, Explorient Travel Services, Inc. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Visits Plus that targets the high-end travel segment offering unique travel experiences throughout the Asia and the Pacific Rim. Such move combines Visits Plus’ 20-years of impeccable standing in the travel industry and robust client base with Explorient’s exclusive and innovative products, making them available to retail agents and tour organizers.

Prior to this announcement, tour products previously available through Visits Plus consist of primarily mid-range, typical itineraries targeting first time travelers of Asia. As a result of this product merger between our two companies, we are now able to offer a greater and more robust selection of travel experiences to our direct clients, retail agents and tour organizers. On the wholesale side, this expands the tour portfolio immensely roughly from approximately 50 packages to $200+ presently available on Explorient.com - ranging everything from ultra-luxury tours to active eco-adventures to fascinating family holidays. Since its inception, Explorient has been aggressively expanding and enhancing its tour portfolio to incorporate the latest travel trends with new off-the-beaten path travel destinations, fresh itineraries and best-in-class accommodations, making it arguably the most expansive suite of Asia tour products in the marketplace.
In addition to the broadened array of travel products the retail agent can offer her clients, it especially good news as tours sold through Explorient.com now offer agency commission, which was not the case prior to this move. For the consumer, travelers can now choose to work with their travel agent of choice or directly with one of Explorient’s expert staff. “This is a win-win-win for all of us – for the direct consumer, the retail travel agent, and Visits Plus”, said Donald Yu, President of Visits Plus & Explorient. “On the product development, marketing and operations side, instead of differentiating our products for the various spending brackets, our team can now focus on a single product suite to design and deliver high-end vacation experience across the board, maintain parity on service offerings between our travel agent partners and direct consumers, and streamline operations to support a consolidated product line that ultimately translate to higher efficiencies and stronger purchasing power”, added Yu.
The transition is expected to be completely seamless as users of Visits Plus.com will be notified of this change and re-directed to the Explorient website. Existing travel agents can still work with their favorite travel specialist, offer their clients a greater selection of vacation options, and receive agency commission under the same structure as that of Visits Plus.
