Welcome to this week’s TravelTalkMEDIA Newsletter,

This turns out to be a big TV production week for us as we visit several California destinations including the South Coast Winery Resort & Spa in Temecula Valley, Pleasant Holidays and Hilo Hattie’s location in the Gas Lamp Quarter of San Diego. Then it was back to Temecula Valley to the award winning Thornton Winery. You can catch up with our Good Morning San Diego travel news segments on KUSI Channel 9 and some of the new additions to our TV directory page at
www.TravelTalkRADIO.com/traveltalktv_index_06.html

This week’s TravelTalkRADIO program is the kick-off for our KRLA 870AM programming in Los Angeles. We are excited to be broadcasting on one of Los Angeles’ most powerful stations. With millions of listeners, we look forward to providing Angelinos another great hour of TravelTalkRADIO from 8pm to 9pm Pacific every Sunday night during the entire month of December. This is in addition to our regular Sunday broadcasts on KXMX 1190AM in Los Angeles from 3pm to 5pm Pacific. Los Angeles is the 2nd largest radio market in the country with over 10 million listeners and we are delighted with our widespread coverage there on these two powerful stations.

You just haven’t heard enough yet from us yet about the rising star among resort and destination companies called Forever Resorts. If you are following along with us, you’ll remember that Rex Maughan, Founder and CEO, and his staff just celebrated 25 years in the resort business and they are going stronger every day. With almost 70 destinations in and around many of the US National Parks, stunning marinas and state-of-the-art houseboats in California, Arizona and Texas, the famed J.R. Ewing Southfork Ranch (and nearby Southfork Hotel) in Dallas, all the way to more than 20 properties in Europe and Africa including resorts near game reserves in South Africa, it’s really hard to pick just one of the locations to talk about. But we will throw a dart on the map and see where we land!

Also SuperClubs is getting ready to re-open up its newly refurbished, all-inclusive resort at Breezes Runaway Bay in Jamaica. With the Issa family at the helm, you know it will be stunning and you know you can always count on SuperClubs for a fabulously relaxing time without many of the hassles of a typical resort, like needing extra money for food and drink, water sports, and the ever-burning hole in your pocket that comes from tipping! Some of the SuperClubs resorts even include free room service, daily personal laundry, golfing and much, much more all for one all-inclusive price. You can lock your wallets and purses away for the entire time you are at a SuperClubs resort. Now that’s relaxing! SuperClubs will have you thinking about your next visit even before you leave! SuperClubs has also extended its popular “Passport Included” promotion.  With this program, SuperClubs will pay the fees (up to $97 per person), as part of a Super-Inclusive vacation booking by a US citizen in the Caribbean or the Bahamas in 2007. See their website at www.SuperClubs.com for more information.

We are reminded that the gift of travel this season is as hot as ever. Below, you will find a snapshot of data from the Voice of the Traveler survey by the Travel Industry Association (TIA) and Synovate. It will give you an idea of what excites today’s traveler and perhaps spark an idea for your next trip. The survey was conducted in May among a representative sample of 1,500 U.S. adults.

SPA VACATIONS: More than half (54%) of travelers said they were currently interested in going to a spa or a place where they can relax and rejuvenate themselves.  Good news for the spa industry, interest appears to be growing.  Almost a third (28%) of travelers said they were MORE interested now compared to five years ago in going to a spa or a place where they can relax and rejuvenate themselves.  In fact, spa vacations ranked fifth when listing all the things people said they were MORE interested in doing now compared to five years ago.  Among those who are interested in spa vacations, the majorities (40%) are 35 – 54 years old; however, interest is also strong among 18 – 34 year olds (37%).

VOLUNTEER VACATIONS:  One-quarter (24%) of travelers said they were currently interested in taking a volunteer or service-based vacation.  More than one in ten travelers (11%) said they were MORE interested now compared to five years ago in taking a volunteer or service-based vacation.  Interest was strongest among baby boomers, with the largest share (47%) of those interested in taking a volunteer vacation falling into the 35 – 54 year old age range.

CHILDREN-FRIENDLY DESTINATIONS: More than 35% of travelers said they were currently interested in traveling to places that cater to children. Among those who are interested, the majority (51%) are 18 – 34 years old, presumably young families with young children.  Nearly one in five travelers (18%) said they were MORE interested now compared to five years ago in traveling to places that cater to children.

SPIRITUAL VACATIONS:  One-quarter (25%) of travelers said they were currently interested in taking a spiritual vacation (e.g., religious retreat, pilgrimage). More than one in ten travelers (12%) said they were MORE interested now compared to five years ago in taking a spiritual vacation.  The appeal of a spiritual vacation spans the ages, with approximately one-third of each age group (18 – 34 years old, 35 – 54 years old and 55+) expressing current interest in taking such a vacation.

ENRICHMENT TRAVEL:  More than half (56%) of travelers said they were currently interested in taking an educational trip where they and/or their family can learn something.  Nearly 22% of travelers said they were MORE interested now compared to five years ago in taking such a trip.

 Have a great week and please join us this Sunday for a great program.

Safe travels,

Sandy Dhuyvetter
