HOW IT WORKS

Login to your member account in our websystem and enter your small-groups tour(s) information.
Through our API we feed your tour(s) to the websystems used by the wholesale operators you work with (your partners).
Their website is consulted by travel agents and/or consumers. And the websystem or booking platform your partners use, also feed travel agencies’ web sites.
Some of your partners’ systems also connect to other systems, which will reach other travel agencies outside your partners’ networks.
The outcome is a two-way feeding system, networking content back and forth within the trade. And, therefore, the outreach of a larger number of consumers around the world.

  • THE SMALL GROUPS CONCEPT

    A SmallGroups tour must be in a slower pace than a traditional coach tour, and include exciting cultural experiences along the way. Combined with other special features, it will give passengers a much sensible and enjoyable trip, tasting a little bit of each place from an insider’s know-how. For more information, please get in touch.

  • PUBLICIZING

    Initially they will be promoted:

    • To the headstart clients case, through WhatsApp and E-mail Marketing.
    • In Social Networks posts and ads.

    In addition:

    • A Digital Brochure will be available for download on this web site, on our social media profiles and pages.

    What is the headstart clients case?

    Is the set of wholesale operators that already have an agreement with the current member DMCs. Since they are already promoting the small-groups tours and, therefore, with a showcase set and running, all you have to do is make an agreement with them and your tours will be out there straight away. For starters, Schultz Operator takes in all tours approved by the club. This means that you will be showcasing to 13,000+ travel agencies in Brazil and 1,000+ in Portugal, right from the start.

    Will the club participate in fairs and events?

    In the medium and long term, as the club evolves, we will participate in the most relevant fairs in the trade, such as BRAZTOA, ABAV, WTM Latin America, WTM London, WTM Dubai, FiTur, ITB Berlin, FIT Argentina, ANATO Colombia, among others.

    We also count on each member DMC to help promote all tours, for the success of the club is the success of all.

  • MONETIZING

    Will the club sell the tours directly to travel agencies?

    No, the club will not sell directly to travel agencies neither to consumers. The small-groups tours are distributed exclusively to tour operators; those which have an agreement with the member DMCs.

    May the member DMC’s sell one another’s products?

    Yes. We aim at broadening the network. However, negotiations shall be made individually: DMC x DMC x TOUR OPERATOR.
