Information for buyers

WYSTC facilitates business between providers and buyers of products and services for youth and student travellers.

In terms of WYSTC, a buyer is a retail or wholesale organisation that focuses on sending youth and student travellers abroad. For example, a buyer organisation may be an online travel agent, an agent offering au pair, work & travel, educational and other overseas programmes or a school group tour organiser.

The WYSTC 2017 Buyer Programme offers selected buyer organisations special participation terms, courtesy of Destination Canada.

Organisations willing to be considered for the WYSTC 2017 Buyer Programme are invited to complete the WYSTC buyer application form.

Buyer applications are reviewed against the WYSTC buyer selection criteria:

  • WYSE Travel Confederation membership
  • Previous attendance of WYSE Travel Confederation events
  • Feedback of 4 referees
  • Scale of current business
  • Potential for future business
  • Breakdown of youth and student travellers sent by sector
  • Top destinations for sending youth and student travellers
  • Location of the office(s)
  • Participation objectives

There are limited buyer places available and as such we operate on a first come, first served basis.

As an outcome of the buyer application, selected organisations are categorised either as Hosted Buyer or Qualified Buyer. Participation benefits, terms and conditions corresponding to each category apply, as described below.

Organisations that are not selected for the WYSTC 2017 Buyer Programme, or do not wish to follow buyer terms and conditions, are invited to participate as regular delegates.
