Discuss with friends about a group tour to destination to explore interest
As Group Leader, you are responsible for generating interest among your friends and family. You need 14 paid travelers for a free trip or YMT will pay you $100 per person for 10 travelers and over. So, you need a minimum of 10 travelers but the goal is to recruit 14 or more for a free trip. The other great thing about YMT Tours is that they are very reasonable. The average 10 day trip cost about $3400 per person including airfare, accommodations, taxes and fee. YMT takes advantage of group rates and pass the savings on to your group.
Start the conversation about your trip. Take for example traveling is to Italy, Tuscany area. Ask friends and family about their interest in the trip and give them an approximate cost. It all starts with generating interest among your friends and family.
Go to YPT Tours to Sign up and Get a Customize Travel with Cost
Once you have enough prospective travelers, go to YMT Tours and sign up for a customize trip with cost. The trip customization is where you get the real interest. Once you tell everyone about the details of your trip, you will get much more interest in the trip. Because you need a minimum of 14 paid travelers for a free trip, strive for 20 travelers knowing that the drop rate will give you 14 travelers. Even if you fall below the 14 travelers, you still get $100 per person so at the rate of $1500, your trip (minus airfare) is almost paid for anyway minus airfare and taxes.
