Global Travel Collection (GTC) is the name Internova Travel Group has chosen for the business division representing its premium and luxury travel businesses and its membership programs.
That includes Protravel International, Tzell Travel Group, Andrew Harper, In the Know Experiences, Colletts Travel, All Star Travel Group and R. Crusoe & Son. While Protravel and Tzell merged into one organization earlier this year, advisors can still use either brand. Advisors will also continue to use the other brand names under the GTC.

"The name Global Travel Collection was born out of the realization that through our independent advisor model, we have hundreds of brands within Protravel and Tzell Travel with a wide variety of expertise and specialties," Angie Licea, president of GTC, said in a statement. "The name Global Travel Collection honors the entrepreneurial and international nature of our organization. We are truly a global collection of brands and companies."
The combination of brands into the then-unnamed Global Travel Collection came in late May when Internova announced a major reorganization. At the time, Internova was known as Travel Leaders Group.
Now, Travel Leaders Group is a division under Internova, housing Travel Leaders Network, Nexion Travel Group, Barrhead Travel, Roadtrips, Travel Leaders Vacation Center, CruCon Cruise Outlet and Cruise Specialists.
Internova also this year combined corporate travel brands Altour and Travel Leaders Corporate, which operates under the Altour name.
