It’s your Costco membership card.If you have one, you’re not alone. Costco says it serves more than 10 million members across Canada (quite a feat in a country with a population of 36 million) and its annual sales in Canada now top $15 billion, making it one of the largest retailers in the country. The U.S.-based company now has warehouses in just about a dozen countries worldwide, with the count in Canada hovering around 100. Everyone likes to save money, whether they’re buying a pallet of paper towels or a lifetime’s supply of ketchup. You can buy a diamond ring at Costco, a snowplow, even a casket. So why not travel?Traditional travel agents making a living in the Canadian market have been successfully fending off disruptors for decades now. And no one selling travel in this market expects an easy go of it. The problem with Costco Travel, which operates under the Costco umbrella, isn’t so much its volume of sales, or even its extensive (and growing) reach. It’s the alleged extreme rebating and undercutting, say agents, who are fed up with the wholesale giant.One agency exec says his company lost a $63,000 Regent Seven Seas Cruises booking to Costco Travel, and was at risk of losing a world cruise booking on another cruise line, until they saved it by convincing the cruise line to help share the burden of a US$4,000 rebate, “to salvage the customer to stay with our Canadian agency, rather than move their large booking to the U.S.”As he points out, discounting has been around for years. “We all discount, perhaps up to 5%, to match a competitive quote, or to reward a loyal client who may have referred another booking, or perhaps to make up for an issue that happened on their last trip. That is just a normal part of doing business, which we all understand, and most do accept.”But, he says, rebating “is on the far extreme of discounting”, and extreme rebating “is a not-so-hidden virus.”He charges that cruise lines who announced no-discounting policies – to put an end to undercutting the selling price – left the back door open for rebating that discount back to the client. In the case of Costco, he alleges, “they creatively rebated by giving their cruise customers a Costco gift card for the value of the 10% rebate that they were doing, [a practice that had been] shut down by the cruise lines’ no discounting policy.”That rebate amount may have been driven down to 5% after industry pressure, but has since crept back up to 10%, he charges.Costco built its business on a pared-down wholesale model, short on frills and long on savings. Not surprisingly, it doesn’t have a PR or media department, and an executive in the company declined to give an interview. The Costco Travel website says the company uses its “buying authority to negotiate the best value in the marketplace, and then pass on the savings to Costco members.”Shoppers at CostcoFor Costco buyers with an Executive Membership, purchases made directly from Costco Travel earn a 2% reward (up to $1,000) on qualified purchases, applied after travel is completed. Costco Travel works with the full range of suppliers, not just cruise lines. Some say the fact that Costco is a membership model, or shopping club, makes for a gray area. But a number of suppliers have taken a stand nevertheless, saying they won’t partner with companies who don’t play by the rules, if it’s to the detriment of other agency partners.Collette spokesperson Amelia Sugerman says Collette made a decision to walk away from discounters such as Costco in a strategic effort to remain committed to travel agents and partners.“We recognize that agents work really hard for their business and that it’s our responsibility as a guided travel provider to support their commitment to the industry,” says Sugerman. “We want to protect their profession and don’t want to deteriorate a travel agent’s profession by rebating commission.”She adds: “We know that travel professions are experts and not only do we want to protect their livelihood but we want to drive business to them instead of online discounters who don’t have the expertise that travel professionals do. We really see online discounting and commission rebating as an industry threat and are committed to improving the lives of agents and the agent profession overall.”Viking Cruises made headlines in October 2017 when it pulled its product from Costco Travel, citing rebating concerns. Another major player, Sandals Resorts, has also declined to work with Costco Travel. Major travel retail groups have entered the fray too. TL Network’s Christine James, VP Canada, says: “I cannot speak to the practices of other travel retailers. I can tell you that we view it as extremely important to respect and support the requirements set forth by our valued supplier partners.”Flemming Friisdahl, who heads up The Travel Agent Next Door, points out the industry has come a long way since the days when suppliers ‘going direct’ was the big concern. “I have always said we cannot limit the number of competitors, however we can make it an even playing field for everyone,” says Friisdahl. “I have no issue with [Costco Travel] selling the product, however they are a membership based organization and they make significant money through memberships, while retailers do not have this option. So it is not a fair playing field.” He adds: “What really bothers me is that some suppliers give Costco special pricing and this is completely unfair and it will hurt the suppliers long term. If you give someone a price that is 20% cheaper than anyone else, ‘as long as they only market to their members’, then the consumer will go there and skip the local agent. Long-term Costco will continue to ask for more concessions and they will be granted. So make it a fair playing field, allow everyone the same net or published fare and then let the best agent/agency win the business.”Retailers have a voice, both through ACTA and through what suppliers they choose to sell, he adds. “But how many of them take a stand? If we as agents don’t stick together and voice our concerns to ACTA and also stop selling suppliers that don’t treat us as equals we will continue to be taken advantage of.”Heather Craig-Peddie, VP, Advocacy and Member Relations for ACTA, says several ACTA members “have raised concerns about Costco Travel and what appears to be discounting on packages.”In one incident, when ACTA questioned the supplier involved, it was ACTA’s understanding that the low prices “were not those of the supplier”. The supplier sold Costco the airline seats, says Craig-Peddie, and Costco Travel then packaged them up with other product, potentially at different contract rates based on their buying power in the U.S. In that case, ACTA got a quick response from the supplier, says Craig-Peddie.While Costco Travel’s reach and high-profile presence are no doubt generating new business and new bookings, other bookings are the result of a lost sale by a traditional agency, who couldn’t compete on price. As with just about everything in this industry, this battle will come down to service, smarts and strategy. It’s a battle traditional travel agents have fought before, and won.

South Sudan military is accused of widespread abuses

first_imgIn another case, witnesses alleged that armed men gang-raped a 17-year-old girl and then fatally shot her, according to the U.N. report.“The government was in charge of this operation completely. They designed it, they implemented it, and they are claiming victory because of it,” said Wheeler of Human Rights Watch.South Sudan’s civil war has inflamed the country’s ethnic tensions. The Dinka followers of President Salva Kiir are pitted against the Nuer allies of former vice president Riek Machar. In Unity state, however, the fighting is mostly between the Bul, who have remained loyal to Kiir, and other Nuer groups aligned with Machar.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Parents, stop beating yourself up Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “They are trying to destroy our lives,” said survivor Angelina Nyaboth Chap Tang, who fled to a U.N. base in the state capital of Bentiu. “I lost my son. I lost my grain. I lost my cattle. Everything has been destroyed.”Tang said armed men killed her son in an attack two weeks ago in which her village was torched, grain stocks destroyed and cattle looted.Another survivor, Theresa Nyakama, said she lived off wild plants for a month before seeking shelter with the U.N. in Bentiu, where some 28,000 civilians have fled since the start of the offensive in May.Although both warring factions in South Sudan’s current conflict are accused of carrying out widespread abuses against civilians, government troops are increasingly reported to have committed large-scale atrocities in conflict zones where the rebels are perceived to have support.The pattern of attacks on “village after village” amounts to a “widespread and systematic” campaign by government forces to displace civilians, Human Rights Watch researcher Skye Wheeler told AP in Bentiu.“The opposition forces are dependent upon the civilian population for their livelihoods, so what the government has done in Rubkona, Koch, and Guit counties we know for sure, and perhaps in other areas as well, is implement a very large scale pattern of attacks on the civilian population, undercutting the (armed opposition’s) ability to live in those areas,” she said. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 JUBA, South Sudan (AP) — South Sudan’s army has burned people alive, raped and shot girls, and forced tens of thousands from their homes, according to interviews with survivors by The Associated Press and corroborated by human rights groups.The scorched earth campaign is apparently aimed at driving civilians out of the rebel-controlled parts of an oil-rich state, according to Human Rights Watch. South Sudan’s military is trying to depopulate the rural areas of Unity state through violence and hunger, said the group. The tactics, which include the alleged burning of grain stocks and the looting of life-sustaining property like cattle, are believed to be part of efforts to drain the rebels of their support base. Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Humanitarian aid to the hardest hit areas has been “blocked” by the violence, according to the USAID-funded Famine Early Warning System Network, which said in a report last week that “an increasing number of households are likely to face catastrophe,” or famine conditions in which people starve to death.Evidence of “serious” human rights abuses that represent a “new brutality and intensity, including such horrific acts as the burning alive of people inside their homes,” was presented in a report released this week by the human rights division of the U.N.’s mission in South Sudan. The U.N. report also alleged widespread sexual violence.South Sudan military spokesman Col. Philip Aguer denied the allegations, saying the army’s strategy is not to drive out civilians to undercut the rebels. He called for a full investigation including representatives of the U.N., the government and the opposition.Yet survivors of some horrific attacks in South Sudan believe government troops are responsible.In a recent interview in the U.N. base, survivor Chan Wang said he watched from a river where he hid as soldiers threw two women, his male neighbor and children into a hut and set it ablaze, killing all those inside. “If they don’t shoot them with a gun, they throw them into the burning house so that they die there,” he said.center_img Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breacheslast_img read more

Online booking sites under threat

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T When it comes to booking international holidays, Australians are stepping away from the online environment and reverting back to traditional travel agencies, says Wotif head.“People have tended to go back to bricks-and-mortar agencies (when travelling overseas) and that’s been very much our view as to how the market will play out,” Wotif chief executive Robbie Cooke told AAP.According to Mr Cooke, while travellers are happy to book domestic travel online, they had “some hesitation” doing so for international travel.Pointing to an increase in package holiday bookings and the strength of the Australian dollar, Mr Cooke expects a flat first half profit for the online travel company.Wotif recently announced plans to lift its commission by one percentage point from January, with a second increase expected to follow next year, enabling the company to continue investing in sales and product initiatives.The online travel company recently expanded into the realm of holiday home rentals and added domestic and international flight booking capabilities to its portfolio.last_img read more

India and Bangladeshfor live scores and updates Israel and India signed several agreements on cooperation in the fields of technology water and agriculture Wednesday the second day of a landmark visit by the Indian prime minister to the Jewish state The cooperation marks a "marriage made in heaven" said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaking alongside his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi The agreements are the centerpiece of Modi’s three-day visit which began Tuesday to celebrate the 25 years of diplomatic relations and bring them even closer The two leaders also said they discussed counterterrorism and cybersecurity cooperation between the two states In the months leading up to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s historic visit to Israel India signed two arms deals spending $26 billion on Israeli missile defense systems Since Modi arrived on Tuesday military ties — for decades the secretive bedrock of India-Israel relations — have taken a back seat The governments have instead spent time discussing companies that sell medical devices hi-tech and water systems Rather than making the visit the first by a sitting Indian prime minister all about the value of deals signed Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Modi appeared intent on playing up shared culture and values in the hope this will give commercial ties deeper roots India’s PM Modi with Netanyahu in Israel/ Pic courtesy: PIB "Our goal is to build a relationship that reflects our shared priorities and draws on enduring bonds between our peoples" Modi said at the joint press conference During the Cold War India didn’t have open relations with Israel leaning heavily in favor of the Palestinians But over the past quarter century the countries have developed close ties in high-tech and defense Apart from meetings with Netanyahu Modi will hold talks with tech companies and the local community of Indian Jews He also said Wednesday he would pay respects to Indian soldiers buried in Haifa who died fighting in the British Army during World War I The packed schedule also included a visit Tuesday to Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial but no meetings with Palestinian officials have been planned Modi also met Wednesday with Moshe Holtzberg a boy whose parents were killed in a 2008 massacre in Mumbai carried out by Muslim militants Holtzberg’s parents were emissaries of the Chabad movement living in Mumbai at the time Rabbi Yisroel Kozlovsky co-director of the Mumbai Chabad said he was glad Modi "recognized the sacrifice" of Holtzberg’s parents describing them as an "exceptional couple" that worked to establish Chabad-Lubavitch in Mumbai Under Arab pressure India kept its distance from Israel for decades but is now seeing advantages in a complementary relationship with Israel There is interest on both sides in building a broad economic base rather than merely a contractual exchange based around defense The timing reflects a diplomatic shift toward Israel being more accepted in the region Modi who is acutely conscious of the need to adopt innovation and new technology to update India’s infrastructure has always had a personal affinity for Israel and came to learn more about the country before he became premier "India and Israel are walking hand in hand into the future as partners" Modi and Netanyahu wrote in a joint editorial this week "From start-ups to space communications to cybernetics Israel’s technological capabilities are merging with India’s" The two men are spending 48 hours together with Modi accompanied by Indian business leaders getting a political and business tour that covers Israeli history culture and innovation as well as the signing of economic agreements Looking to reorient Israel’s economy toward Asia Netanyahu hopes more deals will follow setting a goal of increasing exports to India by 25 percent in the next four years But it may take a while before the Modi-Netanyahu relationship sparks a serious expansion in investment and trade both of which remain relatively negligible In many respects export-dependent Israel and India which is focused on supplying its huge population are complementary Israel is a global leader in water and food systems two critical fields India needs to upgrade India wants to strengthen its manufacturing base and is looking to do so

former investment banker from Mumbai who is director of corporate development for OurCrowd after moving to Israel last year "Israelis on the other hand are quite direct and lack patience in their business approach" he told Reuters Israel’s ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said it is becoming easier to do business between the two countries even if there may remain some differences in practice
