Talisman travel design

Description of the organization and its target audience

Talisman travel design is a tailormade travel organisation, aiming at the luxury traveler. The Talisman travelers are adventurous yet distinguished and are money rich- time poor. They are looking for a specialist who can help them with designing their perfect journey. Exclusivity and privacy is more important than luxury. Authentic encounters, off the beaten track excursions and special experiences are the main elements in which a Talisman journey distinguishes itself. Our Destination Specialists are the best of the best and are more than capable to transform the needs and wishes of the clients into a truly perfect journey design.

Talisman designs journeys to Asia, Africa, Middle East, Australia and Latin America. Our clients are mainly from The Netherlands and Belgium.

We are aiming at:
- the 50+ audience, money rich-time poor. Living together with partner, kids have already moved out or are in highschool. Looking for a specialist who can design their ideal holiday. Spend from + EUR 10.000,- per journey and up.

- Families with young(er) kids, looking for quality time. Adventure is combined with relaxation, choice of accommodations is fairly important for this target group as they are looking for a place big enough to stay all together yet offering an understated elegance and intimacy. Travel spend from EUR 15.000,- and up.

- Multi Generations: Granddad and Grandmother taking childern and grandchildern on a holiday. Can be different journeys all coming together in one place or a once in a lifetime experience all together such as a safari. Special family moments are key in these journeys. Travel spend from EUR 50.000 and upwards.
