Global Connections Travel Agency Announces Design a Tour for Global Discovery Vacations Members

OVERLAND PARK, KS – July 25, 2018 Global Connections Inc. (GCI), the highly-respected resort developer, travel club fulfillment and service provider of Global Discovery Vacations (GDV), has announced a new feature offered by its travel agency, Global Connections Travel.

For years the Travel Agency has offered VIP themed cruises – Military Appreciation, Valentine’s Day, 50s and 60s themed adventure to the Caribbean, a distinctive voyage through the Panama Canal, an Elton John Experience, and a 7-day Caribbean Cruise benefitting Children’s Mercy Hospital to name a few. Earlier this year, specialty VIP Tours were added to the ever-expanding menu of travel options for GDV Members.

The latest addition to the varied vacation offerings is Design a Tour, a program where Global’s professional travel consultants tailor-make a personalized, custom vacation experience filled with unique and unforgettable adventures. Some families opt for whirlwind globetrotting trips, so they may experience all the places on their “bucket list.” Others choose to put together an in-depth stay in the country of their ancestry. And still others select a combination of land-sea-outdoor adventure. Whatever dream vacations our GDV members desire, Global Connections Travel can make even better. Global’s professional travel agents have a wealth of knowledge bringing their in-depth travel expertise to the vacation planning process.

Some GDV members are using Design a Tour to expand on the upcoming VIP Oktoberfest tour to Southern Germany. The small group is nearly full and includes an exclusive tent for GDV Members at Oktoberfest in Munich. The group will also visit some exceptional auto museums including BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. They will also enjoy a Cogwheel train ride and a scenic Rhine River Cruise.

Coming up on the heels of the 2019 Oktoberfest VIP Tour will be the 2020 Passion Play in Oberammergau. Produced only once in a decade, the event is already stirring interest among GDV members.

Design a Tour and other VIP Tours are a direct result of Global’s commitment to member engagement and creating lifetime vacation experiences.

“We’ve learned that the vacation experience looks different to each member,” said Tom Lyons, President and CEO of GCI. “With Design a Tour there is an option for everyone.”
