Travel and time, they go together. When you travel you take time, whether for business or pleasure or both there has to be time. If you are traveling for pleasure it takes some freedom doesn’t it and money. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to travel wherever you choose, in a moments notice, maybe to an exotic location in the blink of an eye? Read on….
Did you know?
In the past week many of my associates have heard about how people are not traveling because of the economy. Do not believe these comments. The travel and tourism industry and the manner in how I will show you how to apply my secret… “Time Travel Exotica” principal right now is stronger than ever. The travel and tourism industry continues to be a multi-trillion dollar worldwide business. It is almost its own mini-economy.
Here are some interesting facts!
“Cruise spending is up in a down economy in destinations visited by cruise line-members of the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association.
Cruise tourism boosted revenues for ports and businesses in Florida, Latin America and the Caribbean in one of the gloomiest financial years since the Great Depression, according to an FCCA-commissioned study from Business Research and Economic Advisors.
BREA reported that FCCA-regional cruise tourism in 2008-2009 generated more than $2.2 billion in direct expenditures, 56,000 jobs and $720 million in employee wages among 29 destinations surveyed.
“This certainly is wonderful news, but it doesn’t surprise me,” Michele M Paige, FCCA president, told association members attending the 16th Annual Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association’s Conference and Trade Show in St Lucia. “FCCA members are known for seeing opportunities — not obstacles.”
FCCA Chairman Micky Arison agreed. “No industry is recession-proof, but the cruise industry traditionally has been recession-resistant,” said Arison, chairman and CEO of Carnival Corporation & plc.
The new study analyzed spending by passengers, crew members and cruise lines in destinations ranging from the Caribbean islands, Mexico, Central America and South America, said Andrew Moody, Ph.D., president of the Exton, PA-based research group. Among BREA’s findings:
Cruise passengers (17.56 million) spent $1.71 billion in 29 participating destinations. An average of 52 percent of passengers bought shore excursions, generating $328 million in total payments to tour operators. Passengers also bought watches and jewelry ($634 million); clothing ($168 million) and other goods and services ($164 million).
Crew members (3.24 million) spent nearly $289 million in the 29 destinations, mostly for clothing, food and beverages, as well as jewelry, electronics, perfumes and cosmetics.
Cruise lines spent an estimated $279.9 million in participating destinations for port fees and taxes, utilities, navigation services and ship supplies.
“These expenditures have a direct impact on local employment and wages,” Moody said. “Local businesses… create additional jobs and income.”
BREA-surveyed destinations included Antigua & Barbuda; Aruba; The Bahamas; Barbados; Cayman Islands; Curacao; Dominica; Dominican Republic; Grenada; Jamaica; San Juan, Puerto Rico; St Kitts and Nevis; St Lucia; St Maarten; St Vincent and the Grenadines; Trinidad and Tobago; Turks and Caicos and US Virgin Islands in the Caribbean; Acapulco, Cabo San Lucas, Cozumel, Ensenada and Huatulco in Mexico; Belize, Costa Rica, Honduras and Nicaragua in Central America, and Cartagena, Colombia, in South America.
Paige noted that polled passengers said they enjoyed their cruises, a strong indication that they are likely to cruise again in the region and spend money.”
So as you can see… the travel and tourism industry is transcending much of what other industries are experiencing.
Now, I bet you would like the answer to the question, how to apply my “Time Travel Exotica” principal right now? That is to be able to have the money, the freedom, the time and ability right now, to travel to an exotic location of your choice? Simple!
Travel Ventures International! Before I learned about TVI my Time Travel Exotica principal was only a dream… now its a reality.
TVI has entered North America July 2009 and is growing leaps and bounds. The team of which I am proud to be one of the leaders, TVI World Team, is the most productive in North America. I am racking up travel faster than you can say, “board the boat!” Truthfully, many have joined our team primarily not for the travel only but for the compensation plan. As you will see… instead of spending the high dollars on advertising like most companies do, they decided to use the power of the three megatrends to advertise their company.
Those three megatrends are:
Travel and Tourism
The Internet and
The Home Based Business Phenomenon
This allows regular folks to become agents of the company, not only to network advertise but at the same time, be compensated with the outstanding TVI Travel and Earn program.
Whatever way you stack it, it is the perfect vehicle to apply my “Time Travel Exotica” principal because it allows me or anyone else, in the blink of an eye, right in the comforts of their own home, to book an exotic vacation from their TVI Backroom without spending a dime out of their own pocket. Not only that but while using a selection of locations that would suit a prince and getting paid for it handsomely at the same time.
