QVC, following in the footsteps of several other home shopping networks, is dipping its toe into the travel business.
We noticed on QVC.com that the No. 1 electronic retailer is partnering with Trafalgar Travel to offer deals.
We believe both HSN and Jewelry Television have already expanded into this arena. HSN, for example, arranged hotel accommodations in Las Vegas for customers who attended an Earth, Wind and Fire concert it televised last year.
QVC said on its website that “travel is now available through QVC.” It said it had chosen Trafalgar “to bring you a collection of in-depth worldwide experiences that go beyond the expected.”
The home shopping channel also was hawking a travel voucher, $50, for Trafalgar.
Here is the deal for that:
When the travel bug bites, an amazing getaway is the only cure. And, with this Travel the World voucher from Trafalgar — a leading provider for guided travel throughout Europe and the United States — you’re closer than ever to your dream vacation.
