Make Yourself at Home

Have you ever wanted to share a special day with all of your friends without the hassle of running the show? Now you don’t have to with our Home-Hosted Get Togethers. All you have to do is pick a date, invite your friends, and Grand Circle Travel does the rest. Michelle Bishop, Assistant Director of the Home-Hosted Get Togethers—or one of her team of trained Area Travel Ambassadors—provides invitations, runs the party, and gives an entertaining presentation. “I’ve been invited into so many homes and communities and met warm and adventurous travelers who are excited to tell their friends why they travel with us,” said Michelle. “I’m having such a fun time!”

In just the first few weeks, Michelle has mingled with and made presentations before church groups; retirement communities; and travel, book and sewing clubs. There are incentives for hosts, plus an incentive for each new traveler referred. Attendees meet with Michelle or an Area Travel Ambassador, mingle, and talk about favorite vacation memories, travel tips, and their “wish list” trips. Some hosts even have planned themed events and cooked foods from the regions they’ve traveled to and want to talk about. Response from the Grand Circle community is positive. “I’m still getting comments from our friends about how much they enjoyed the show,” said William Henning of The Villages retirement community in Florida, who hosted a party with his wife Karen. “Michelle’s presentation was interesting and she answered all questions thoroughly. She couldn’t have been more delightful!”

And, of course, there are party favors: Guests will receive special savings—up to $200—when they reserve their first trip.
