TCS World Travel Launches Teen Advisory Panel


Leading Luxury Tour Operator Taps Expertise of Teenagers—the New
Influencers in Family Travel—to Help Deliver Engaging and Memorable
Teen-Approved Experiences That Make the Most of a Family's Time Together

World Travel
, an award-winning luxury tour company, today has
launched a new Teen
Advisory Panel
, a parent- and teen-approved platform that gives
voice to one of the family's most influential travel decision makers—the
teenager. Staying on the pulse of family travel trends and guests'
needs, TCS World Travel has selected an advisory group of well-traveled,
articulate teenagers to serve as a resource for their Luxury
Custom Travel
consultants as they create personalized independent
journeys for families. The panel, which is comprised of eight
travel-savvy teenagers who have visited a minimum of 15 countries on
three or more continents outside of North America, will share their
personal recommendations on destinations and experiences for teens.

"Our Luxury Custom Travel consultants have planned a number of
extraordinary trips for multi-generational families, and we have
recently seen the increased influence that teens have on family travel
decisions, especially when grandparents and parents want to ensure
everyone will enjoy the experience," said TCS World Travel President
Shelley Cline. "We created our Teen Advisory Panel to serve as a
resource for the entire family—for grandparents and parents who want to
keep their teens engaged and excited while traveling and for teenage
guests who want to have a say in their family vacations."

TCS World Travel's Luxury Custom Travel consultants create
all-encompassing custom itineraries from scratch for individuals,
couples and families, personalizing every detail to the guests'
specifications and crafting activities that please everyone from
grandparents to toddlers. When guests work with their Luxury Custom
Travel consultant to plan their custom-tailored journeys, the teen
advisory panel is available for questions and can provide
recommendations with a teenage perspective, from identifying the most
Instagram-worthy spots in a certain city and the best neighborhoods for
foodie experiences, to suggesting local concerts for their age group and
where to meet people their age.

"We've learned that getting teens involved from the very beginning is
important because they feel their interests are heard and taken into
account, and ultimately, the journey provides them with lifelong
memories," continued Cline. "We hope to ease our guests' travel-planning
experience by providing a valuable resource to help satisfy all travel
needs and interests."

TCS World Travel is further positioned as a leader in providing
unparalleled experiences that resonate with all ages, no matter the
destination, and opportunities for discovery they cannot get on their
own. Teen-approved experiences include:

  • Embracing adventure: TCS World Travel's Luxury Custom Travel
    consultants can arrange top-of-the-line guides for teen-approved
    outdoor adventures from surfing in El Salvador and sandboarding in the
    desert to mountain climbing and canyoning in Innsbruck or Queenstown.
  • Savoring the city through food: A popular food blogger can take
    teens to experience the best and most unique food that a country has
    to offer, from interesting street food to weird and wacky dishes.
  • Shopping like a local: A local fashionista can help teens find
    the coolest markets and hippest boutiques, no matter their style.

The members of the Teen Advisory Panel are between 14 – 17 years old and
demonstrate global knowledge based on their extensive travel history.
They have been carefully vetted and handpicked by TCS World Travel based
on the above qualifications and a detailed questionnaire about their
travel experience and recommendations. For more information on TCS World
