Dear Travel Agents,
My name is Joanne Vomiero and I am the Director and Founder of In This Life Wellness Travel. Let me tell you all about my Wellness Travel Training Program to become a Wellness Travel Expert Agent.
Firstly, I started out as a travel agent like yourself, so I understand your role well. I know first hand the glorious, fun, amazingly exciting days; and I also know, as every good travel agent does, the dark days, the horror days, when it is the hardest job in the world, and you could actually cry! Being a travel agent is a very hard role…not many people understand that... but I do – it’s an agent thing!
So, I am here to help you as much as I can. I want to educate you about this amazing, exciting, rapidly growing new genre of Travel… Wellness Travel.
I will share information I have collated over the past 5 years and deliver it to you, so that it is easy to understand and easy for you to recommend to your clients. And just remember you need to be more knowledgeable than your clients – it is important. But mostly I want to get you excited about Wellness Travel because let’s just say.
"Gone are the flop & drop holidays, it's all about sups & superfoods" - Joanne Vomiero, In This Life Wellness Travel
Why am I experienced to develop this training course and deliver the training to you?
Good question... Yes, let me tell you about my experience.
I started in the Travel industry in 1998. Back when we used a big… big book, with a very thin pages to look up fares. We manually constructed fares and manually printed and even hand wrote airline tickets. We got special deals through our fax machine and NO internet…woooooo – Yep way back when! (I’m not that old, just started young!)
I commenced in Retail Travel and quickly moved on to Travel Agency Manager, Cruise Specialist, Special Projects Manager, Travel Advertising and Marketing, where I also wrote travel ariticles for newspapers and magazines and then Travel Business Development Manager. I developed and escorted group tours and won the award for the most innovative office in Australia for a leading Travel Agency. During a working holiday in Canada I was so lucky to land the best job in the world as a hiking guide in the rocky mountains! I also worked front of house for a hotel in Big White, Canada. I worked ground crew for Cathay Pacific (anything from checking, walkie talkie lady and driving the aerobridge.) I am also a qualified Tourism Trainer and assessor and have years of experience training travel agents in the classroom – (so really life training!)
I am qualified to write Training Programs and have worked for a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and one of Australia’s largest Travel Agency chain as a Trainer & Assessor.
And after all of that, I have just spent the last five years researching and developing my company and online travel business In This Life Wellness Travel. What that entailed was literally analysing 100’s and 100’s and 100’s, and to be honest nearly 1000’s of Wellness Properties from around the world. We recorded our findings, recorded data and collated all our information. From there, we have an understanding on how the traveller makes a decision on their travel purchase and in understanding what needs to be presented to the traveller and the travel agent, I innovated In This Life Wellness Travel.
Oh and finally, during all my years of work, outside of work, I also had an interest in Wellness – Health & Fitness, it was called back then, so I completed a personal training course and couple of massage courses and over the last 5 years I have also been running a private practice where I offer therapeutic treatments and ENAR Therapy which is a modern Neuro Adaptive therapy used to heal the body – fast!
So that’s me. Not only do I have the extensive travel experience and travel agency trainer experience, but I can also help teach you about the Wellness Therapies so that you feel confident in what is available at many of these Wellness Resorts around the world.
I love both the travel and training travel agents and I love wellness. And now I have a true passion for Wellness Travel and my greatest joy will be to share this with you and deliver my specialised Wellness Travel training course, so that you can become an Expert Wellness Travel Agent. And it will be … fun & exciting, there is nothing to not enjoy about this subject. I train with motivation and enthusiasm and you may catch the wellness travel bug... so watch out!
What am I going to teach you?
I am going to teach you everything I know thus far. But what took me 5 years to work out, you will get it all nicely summarised and packaged up into a neat little bundled training program, this will be easy to understand and allows you to start selling the very next day. And it won’t take your 5 years to learn all this!
The aim of In This Life Wellness Travel was to make booking a wellness holiday just as easy as booking any other type of holiday. That may seem a strange statement…why would booking a wellness holiday be difficult…? Well if you have not received any training, it most certainly is hard.
Have you ever been in the position where a client has asked for your suggestions about a genre of travel you have no idea about? You grab a brochure and start flipping the pages desperate to find something to point at, although smiling to your client... underneath your little legs are flapping like a duck!
If it has already happened to you with Wellness Travel, you need to seriously consider this course. Because there are not too many brochures out there for you. And it is similar to cruising, just as you need to understand the different cruise lines to match what is suited to your client, the same applies in Wellness Travel. And because of the aspect of "Wellness" ie "health" it further complicates this new genre. But do not worry I have it all summarised for you so that you can understand it reasonably quickly.
Until I developed In This Life Wellness Travel, there was actually not an easy way to find, search or book a wellness property. When I say there wasn’t an easy way, I mean there was nothing… it was you and google. There were a handful of specialised Wellness Travel Agents doing great work in their local areas but there was no wholesaler worldwide nor was there a Wellness Travel booking platform to use either. There was also no industry association, and there was no online travel retailer specialising in wellness travel and offering live bookings like possible in every other genre in travel.
So, I can promise you that no one, will have the knowledge about what is going on the Wellness Travel space and from a Travel Agents perspective, like I do. I have written this program personally, and I know that it is filled with only the good stuff, there are no modules you are doing for the sake of ticking boxes or meeting criteria. This course is specifically designed to teach you, only the what you need to know to get started, and then to become an Expert Wellness Travel Agent. It is filled with stories and fun and engaging elements, that will make this process enjoyable and exciting. I like to get people involved in my training so please bring your own experiences to share with others. Afterall sharing is caring!
And so, if this sounds like it floats your boat, climb aboard…because the Wellness Travel wave is about to hit. Are you set … and ready to catch it?
