The Dream Vacations and CruiseOne travel agency franchises have partnered with tour technology company Worldia, giving agencies access to tour products and services.

This is Paris-based Worldia’s first U.S. partnership. Worldia’s platform offers access to land itineraries in some 85 destinations.

Via Worldia’s technology, advisors will be able “to plan, customize, quote and sell FIT vacation packages within minutes, thanks to a unique combination of proprietary technology, curated content and tour operator services,” said Dream Vacations/CruiseOne.

While this is Worldia’s first partnership in the U.S., the company works with agencies in Europe, including in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain and, soon, the U.K. Worldia was founded in 2013.

“Worldia’s advanced platform, product and tour operator services will make it exponentially quicker to get clients quotes for complex trips,” said Sean Tolkin, vice president of land strategy and network performance for Dream Vacations and CruiseOne. “This heavily involved process that once took days or even weeks to execute, a savvy agent can perform it in minutes. This will allow our network to close sales and bookings faster.”
