Chimu’s people are at the core of what they do and Chimu invited them to share their favourite trips[6] this month. From their Destination Specialists, to their Relationship Managers, to the behind the scenes operations, everyone plays a unique part in the business. What unites them is a passion for Latin America and polar travel. Chimu co-founder, Greg Carter, elaborates: “When Chad and I started the business, we knew it wouldn’t be easy. Our team is the heartbeat of our existence – they not only build and promote the itineraries we run, but also travel on them.” Carter encourages potential clients to explore Chimu’s favourite trips featured on this page[7] which have been personally selected by Chimu staff. From a classic Antarctic Peninsula[8] expedition cruise as chosen by Destination Specialist, Craig Deuchar, to a tailor made Highlights of Peru[9] journey from Relationship Manager, Tenille Hunt, travellers cannot get a higher recommendation.

August saw Chimu partner with luxury cruise liner, PONANT, to bring clients an exclusive €300 per person onboard credit on all PONANT cruises for bookings made up until the 31st August. As Australia’s largest polar wholesaler, Chimu were delighted to combine their expert Arctic and Antarctic knowledge with such a prestigious cruise company. To help agents sell this luxury product, Chimu created a dedicated PONANT landing page[10] which features the discounted PONANT expeditions and a Marketing Pack of educational videos and other selling tools.
