Alexander Anolik Signs on as Travel Law Counsel for Platinum One Destinations
San Diego, CA (February 14, 2008)— Alexander Anolik, widely recognized as one of the pre-eminent travel attorneys in the world and president of the largest U.S. law corporation focusing on the practice of travel law, registrations and travel industry consultation and litigation, has become the travel law counsel for Platinum One Destinations (P1D) and he will share his insights on the state of the travel business as a featured guest in an online presentation hosted by P1D and the Synergy Marketing Group (SMG) on February 19, 2008.
P1D is an exclusive membership site, the first to offer travel to members at the company’s cost, along with five-star service. With this “High Touch, High Tech” experience, P1D exclusive members discover a single travel solution with the 24/7 convenience of the internet, true wholesale pricing—the equivalent of company cost--unavailable to the general public, access to virtually anywhere in the world and five-star service whenever they desire or expect it. The P1D concierges will cater to all their travel needs, book custom vacations, provide guidance and counsel and provide VIP treatment. P1D also provides a dynamic new business opportunity for the entrepreneur who wishes to make these same benefits available to others, while earning commission for membership sales. P1D “soft-launched” in late December with great success, reporting revenues of $2 million in the first 45 days.
“Having Alexander Anolik as our travel law counsel is a real feather in our cap. His vast knowledge of this field ensures that we have the best guidance as we grow our business and create innovative products,” said P1D’s CEO Deborah Smith. “He has a unique perspective on the travel business and we have created a forum for him to share it with our P1D members and other interested parties.”
Anolik cited his reasons for becoming involved with P1D: “I’m impressed with the management of the company because they’ve asked me for the best, they’ve listen to my suggestions and they have the brains and product to put them in front of the market,” said Anolik. “I am joining forces with P1D and I am committing myself to open forums, conferences and training to make sure that the members learn how to sell travel and at the same how to practice Preventive Legal Care®.”
Smith noted that the presentation is open to P1D and the public. Anolik will offer an in-depth look at the travel industry from the consumers, business owners and resellers standpoint. Anolik will address questions on how travel consumers can protect themselves, and how travel business owners and resellers can protect the reputation of their businesses in a quality-diverse travel market.
According to The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), by the end of this year, Travel & Tourism is set to account for 10.3 per cent of global GDP and more than 234 million jobs. The WTTC forecasts show continued growth across the world, averaging 4.6 per cent per annum globally over the next ten years.
“More people than ever are travelling and will be getting involved with travel business opportunities like P1D,” said SMG CEO Nitsa Nakos “But in this market the mantra should be buyer beware. While quality travel memberships and opportunities do exist, people need to know how to truly evaluate their options, especially in the wholesale market. Alexander Anolik knows more about the pitfalls within the travel business than anyone in the world and we are pleased to offer him as a resource to the travel community in this program.”
In 1977, Anolik wrote the first comprehensive text on travel law, The Law and the Travel Industry, a guide for travel agents, consumers and attorneys covering basic laws governing the travel industry. His newest books are focused on the legal rights of the traveller: The Frequent Traveler’s Guide and Traveler’s Rights: Your Legal Guide to Fair Treatment and Full Value (Legal Survival Guides).
