Some of the ways we can help travel professionals:

  • A Southwind representative can attend a client directly at your agency to speak and make a PowerPoint presentation to prospective travelers.

  • Provide press releases and images for agency newsletters, flyers and other marketing materials. Southwind maintains an online library of 10,000 images.

  • Provide discounts to Certified Travel Consultants or Agents interested in traveling with Southwind. Please join us! Our flexible attitude enables us to on occasion offer Fam trips in coordination with agents’ main interests and needs.
