Neil Robertson And Ben Ittensohn

Specialist tour operator Explore Worldwide and MTA Mobile Travel Agents have today announced a new preferred partnership that will see Explore’s 350+ small group adventures promoted through the MTA Travel network.

MTA Travel Head of Product, Neil Robertson says: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Explore Worldwide after their direct entry into the Australian market earlier this year. It’s an exciting time for small group adventure, with the sector growing rapidly post-pandemic, so adding Explore’s extensive range of trips targeting the over-50 market is an important part of our product strategy”.

“MTA Travel is proud to be working with such a proactive and sustainable travel brand”, he continued. “Explore’s repeat customer rate of 60% reflects the breadth and quality of their product. We wanted to ensure that our Mobile Travel Advisors knew the opportunity in this sector”.

Explore’s Regional Director for Australia and New Zealand, Ben Ittensohn, said he was absolutely delighted to be partnering with MTA Travel in 2023 and beyond.

Agents are the cornerstone of our success as we grow our brand here in Australia. MTA Travel is such a highly respected network, and we truly value this new partnership” says Ittensohn.

We’re seeing really strong growth, particularly to Europe and in our walking and cycling trips. We’re keen to ensure that our agent partners have the tools and knowledge to confidently offer our trips to their clients, and benefit from the increased demand for sustainable experiential travel.”

“We look forward to supporting MTA, and welcoming their clients onto our unforgettable small group adventures”.
