Sceptre Ireland Welcomes 2004 Brochure Boasting the Only NET Priced Packages & Emerald Isle Excursions on the Market

On the heels of rocking the industry with the unprecedented announcement of going agent-only and offering net pricing, Sceptre Ireland, the largest tour operator from the U.S. to Ireland, launches its 2004 brochure featuring an impressive portfolio of self-guided tours, deluxe motorcoach adventures and more! These new brochures will be distributed solely to travel agents.

Sceptre Ireland’s 2004 brochure highlights over 50 unique excursions that travel agents can offer their clients, or they may choose to customize an Emerald Isle escape from an expanded collection of over 400 hotels, castles and manor homes and 2,500 plus bed and breakfasts. For the first time ever, Sceptre Ireland’s most talked about pub tour, Sights and Sounds, is offered year round. Priced seasonally , this full escorted tours includes round-trip airfare, four nights at first-class hotels (two nights Galway; two Dublin), two dinners, full Irish breakfast daily, admission to sightseeing excursions, and pub stops a plentiful along the way! Nearly 70 departure dates are available throughout the year.

Also new in 2004, Sceptre Ireland’s signature escorted vacation, the Treasures Tour, now includes a professional driver and guide with travelers at all times (previously the driver served as driver/guide in one). Travelers can experience Sceptre Ireland’s claim to fame Emerald Isle experience with round-trip airfare and seven-night accommodations ranging from hotels to manor homes with a grand finale at a deluxe five-star sprawling castle. Also included are five evening dinners including a gala farewell dinner at Dromoland or Ashford Castle, full Irish breakfast daily, sightseeing and admissions as per itinerary and, of course, a knowledgeable guide and designated driver throughout the vacation.

For the first time in the travel industry history, Sceptre Ireland is offering net rates to agents and instead of quoting consumer prices inclusive of commission to agents. This means that travel professionals will now have the freedom to mark up the net pricing to retail rates as they see fit and set their own profit levels. Agents have the ability to book one of the above packages or dozens of others, or create their own itinerary with tailored touches such as golf, banquets, sightseeing and more, with all inventory available in real-time.

“Our 2004 brochure is the best yet,” said Ed Trotta, president of Sceptre Ireland. “Not only does Sceptre Ireland provide its agents with an extensive collection of self-guided tours and deluxe motorcoach adventures, but a combination of packages and net pricing that are the rival of the industry.”
