You know you’re a Trafalgar past guest when…

Recently updated on August 13th, 2023 at 09:02 pm

There are some things you can only know if you’ve travelled with Trafalgar. From those surprise moments with your Travel Director to the secret perks of our VIT guests and our one-of-a-kind experiences, our past guests are well-clued into the Trafalgar ways. And with a community of over five million Trafalgar past guests, we knew there had to be some common threads between you all. So we turned to our Facebook page and asked our guests to finish this question: You know you’re a Trafalgar past guest when… Here’s what they had to say.

You know you’re a Trafalgar past guest when… You can’t stop coming back

They say once you travel with Trafalgar, you can’t stop… And it’s true! Our Trafalgar past guests return again and again to travel with us, and they often travel with the same past guests and Travel Directors because they loved it so much the first time! We love them right back with our Very Important Traveller (VIT) club. Everyone who travels with Trafalgar (or our Travel Corporation sister brands) becomes a VIT, with exclusive access to savings and deals.
