Spotlight – Golfing on the Greenest Greens

The EuropeanAs the weather starts to warm up, your clients are no doubt dusting off their golf clubs and thinking about a golf getaway. This is the perfect time to let them know that in addition to a golf resort in Florida, the Carolinas, or California, they might consider golfing in Ireland.

A golf vacation in Ireland is one that’s created uniquely for your clients. They can choose from three, four and five-star hotels and add as much or as little time on the links as they like. There’s never been a better time for your clients to fulfill a dream of playing at one of the world’s most famous clubs or find one that’s as-yet undiscovered by the crowds.

Tip of the Week – Dining Out

Clients often look to their travel agent to be a Concierge of sorts and provide recommendations on fun things to see and great places to eat. The Ireland dining scene continues to garner rave reviews and we’ve provided some suggestions on both hot spots and off-the-beaten path winners to recommend.

When a client is making their first visit to Ireland, oftentimes they wander around wondering where to eat. Here is a quick roundup of some award-winning as well as off-the-beaten path spots that are a “must visit” for travelers to these parts of the country.

“Through the Park, Jeeves” – Chauffeur Driven Tours

Chauffeur service allows one to relax in privacy while enjoying the scenery.

Sceptre Tours is proudly launching their new Modular Chauffeur Tours. No longer are self-drive tours the only cost effective way to do sightseeing. Now the massive costs associated with Chauffeur driven tours have been eliminated in this ALL NEW format!

With this new approach, your clients are no longer saddled with a driver for the entirety of their vacation. Now they can have the driver only when they will need him! Your clients will feel free to take walking tours through the city centers and be on their own schedule at a reasonable price.

Never again do you have to worry about the hassles of driving on the “wrong” side of the road, shifting your manual car with your left hand or finding those ever so elusive parking spaces!  Expert driver/guides will educate you about the rich Irish heritage as you sit back, relax, and soak in all the beautiful scenery.

To learn more about our Modular Chauffer tours, contact your RSM for more details.  Don’t know who your RSM is?  Click here to find the RSM for your region.

Travel by Rail

Rail travel in Italy offers exciting views

If you have clients who prefer independent travel to escorted tours, but are uneasy about navigating unfamiliar roads in a rental car, Sceptre’s Independent Travel By Rail vacations are the ideal solution.

Common in Italy and still fairly unique in Ireland, rail travel is a terrific way for vacationers to sit back, relax and enjoy the sites they might not see if traveling by car. For example, the rail between Dublin and Belfast (one of several vacations featured this winter) runs along the coast and provides spectacular views of the Mountains of Mourne.

Sceptre Rail Vacations in Italy begin in Rome and travelers have the option of pairing Rome with Florence, Venice or both. Sceptre’s Rail Vacations in Ireland begin in Dublin, and travelers have the option of pairing Dublin with Galway, Killarney, or Belfast. Indeed, customers may choose to pair all four cities by extending their vacation. Sceptre Tours rail packages have been developed to ensure your customers will enjoy easy access to the sights and cities of Ireland and Italy, with Yellow Jacket assistance in Dublin rail stations, and transfers to conveniently located hotels.
