Aussie travellers VIP for free

AUSSIE travellers can now enjoy VIP treatment at no extra cost when they stay at handpicked hotels and resorts around the world, thanks to an exclusive initiative by Flight Centre Limited.

The company has launched a new program called myTime to give travellers added benefits such as room upgrades, cocktails on arrival, restaurant and spa discounts and priority areas when they book selected holiday packages through Flight Centre Limited's retail and corporate brands.

Flight Centre Limited's executive global marketing manager, Colin Bowman, said the myTime program was a first for the Australian travel industry and would provide customers with unique benefits they could not get elsewhere.

"Effectively, we are rolling out the red carpet for our customers to reward them for booking their holidays with our brands," Mr Bowman said.

"Aussie travellers are always looking for a great deal, so these added extras mean that they are getting even more value-for-money, in addition to the incredibly cheap international airfares that are currently available.

"Through our extensive global network, we are able to provide travellers with a choice of hotels, resorts and villas in Fiji, Bali and Thailand, as well as in the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii."

myTime holiday packages are exclusive to Flight Centre Limited and are currently available at seven key leisure destinations, with plans to expand the network to 160 properties by June next year.

For bookings and details, speak to an experience travel consultant in store at Flight Centre, Escape Travel, Student Flights or Travel Associates.
