Transat celebrated the graduation of 100 new travel professionals from the company's first Rookie Camp, which concluded on April 11 at Paradisus Playa del Carmen.

Over the course of a week, the new travel professionals took part in a variety of engaging activities, including presentations from Transat and its partners, hotel visits, destination experiences and plenty of networking opportunities.

Participants left the camp with new ideas and connections that will help them succeed in their new careers as Transat experts.

“The past few days have reminded me why I chose to work in the travel industry,” said Lindsay Merrill, sales manager at Transat, who helped organize and facilitate the Rookie Camp. “We all share a love and passion for travel. The agents have shown over the past few days that they are committed to providing the best service to our mutual customers so that they can create lasting memories with friends, family and loved ones.”

Participants were enthusiastic about the camp and said it was an exceptional educational experience.

“Despite the rigorous schedule, Transat Rookie Camp 2024 participants came from across Canada to foster meaningful connections and collaborative learning opportunities, enriched by the diverse array of vendors present throughout the week,” said Emeline, from Transat Travel. “What made the experience truly memorable for me were the amazing people I had the pleasure of meeting and the camaraderie we shared.”

“The Transat Rookie Camp was such an amazing learning opportunity,” added Jamie from Woodstock Travel. “The knowledge and experience I gained over the past week would have taken me years to gain on my own. I feel much more confident selling all-inclusive and Transat products in the future.”

Partners in the inaugural Rookie Camp include Bahia Principe, Melia Hotel International, Barcelo Hotel Group, Palladium Hotel Group, Hyatt Inclusive Collection, Iberostar Hotel and Resort and Trafictours.
