The June 2007 Issue of Traveller, the official journal of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents, had the Rocket Guide to Vanuatu glued to the cover and a two page spread on using the Rocket Guide inside. It was sent to 5,600 travel agencies throughout Australia and New Zealand.
The issue had a 21 page special on Vanuatu, taking up a full 38% of the issue and including the cover.
The Vanuatu Tourism Office has a nice two page write-up about how Vanuatu is "More Assessable than Ever Before."
Many properties - recognizing the fact that the Rocket Guide itself would be taken off the cover quickly - included advertisements inside the magazine. The magazine itself will be in the visiting areas of travel agencies throughout Australia and New Zealand for months. Tranquillity Island Diving & Eco Resort, White Grass Ocean Resort, Iririki, Le lagon, Coral Princess Cruises, Air Vanuatu, Paradise Cover Resort & Restaurant, Le Meridien Port Vila Resort, Spa & Casino, and Hideaway Island Resort all advertised in the special.
25 Rocket Guide photos were used to illustrate the special. It is the largest special on Vanuatu ever to appear in a major travel magazine - and the first time AFTA Traveller put any CD on the cover for distribution to all it's member travel agencie in Australia and New Zealand.
