Agent shares the perks of becoming Matai Specialist


Why should you become a Matai Specialist? Aside from learning about  Fiji, its regions and experiences, agents who join the Matai programme can take advantage of a number of benefits on offer. Just ask Lorie Raymundo, a TravelManager from Victoria.

 

 

WHEN DID YOU START SELLING FIJI?

As soon as I started as a travel agent - my first ever booking was actually to Fiji. It was a holiday to Malolo Island and came from an email enquiry when I was working at Student Flights! I still remember that client and their trip very well.

 

WHY DID YOU SIGN UP TO THE MATAI PROGRAMME?

To get the best out of my Fiji experience: both selling and keeping up to date as the destination is always changing. I find it really beneficial.

 

WHAT BENEFITS HAVE YOU SEEN?

I always like the chance to be on a Fiji famil, that’s a great perk of the programme as well as getting invited to Tourism Fiji’s amazing events and road shows. 

 

I also find that the program is really useful for keeping up-to-date and understanding Fiji more, especially because the country is so big – there are more than 300 islands!

 

WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE TO A DESERTED FIJI ISLAND?

My go pro, a snorkel (because Fiji has some of the world’s best soft coral) and my BIG BULA SMILE.

 

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE NOT KNOW ABOUT FIJI?

A lot of people think that Fiji is just about the islands and beach resorts but there’s a lot of beautiful landscapes and incredible adventure activities, world-class surfing and some amazing trekking trails inland.

 

Also, English is widely spoken across the country, so it makes it easy for Australians to get around.
